Hardworking GP Zewlan and her electrician husband Tom (now stay at home Dad to their 2 kids), want an architect designed home in a great location on shoestring budget. This was looking unlikely until they found an inexpensive block on a ridge above a free way at Ocean Shores (near Byron). Now all they need is an architecture firm inventive enough to design them a stylish home for very little money. Their modest, forward thinking philosophy is helpful as they naturally veer away from lavish floor plans and luxurious finishes in favour of the compact, simple, open, sustainable and economical. Working within a tenuous loan framework what they get, apart from stress, is quite fantastic.
