Water Conservation Back On The Agenda

Water, Storage, Tanks, and Data

In a world with ever changing climate conditions, more and more studies are being undertaken in relation to climate change and water conservation.  Focus has shifted even further afield with studies being undertaken into how farmers are capturing and storing rainwater to determine best processes.  Pioneer Water Tanks are on the front line when it comes to providing an optimal solution.

Windhoek-With studies having shown that more rainwater is stored in water tanks underground on farms with bush thinning compared to farms with none, and with a poor grazing conditions, the challenges now are how Namibian producers can use these advantages and how international consumers can get the assurance that the meat bought at a bonus is produced in the right manner.

Permanent Yallingup Aaccommodation

This stunning home is absolutely perfect for a number of different reasons and it is versatile enough to suit a variety of lifestyles.

It is found in the beautiful suburb of Yallingup and enjoys all of the peace and quiet that comes with being located so close to nature, while being on the verge of a number of amenities.

“This home is centrally located, close to Dunsborough with the wineries and restaurants in that area and also close to the coast; Smiths Beach is a short drive away,” Stocker Preston Dunsborough Property Consultant Chris Stott said.

The kitchen in this property is absolutely superb; it contains quality Smeg appliances as well as two ovens and an induction cooktop. Corian benchtops also feature in this immaculate space and finish off what is a dream for a chef of any calibre.

“The sheer size of the kitchen and the workspace will appeal to most buyers, the two ovens are built higher into the cupboards to make them more accessible and easier to use,” Mr Stott said.

The open-plan living and dining area leads off from the kitchen and makes the most of the cathedral-style ceiling that has exposed beams running through it. The height of the ceiling instantly creates a light, bright area that is extremely spacious and welcoming to a variety of entertaining options.

“The main living area includes a large fireplace with slow combustion wood heater. It has a feature stone floor-to-ceiling hearth around the fireplace area that is a key feature of the room,” Mr Stott said.

Sliding stacker doors open onto the alfresco area that is part of the timber-decked verandah which spans the width of the home. The verandah also provides access to three of the four bedrooms through sliding doors.

The master bedroom is the only one that doesn’t provide access to the verandah, but what it lacks in outside access it easily makes up for in other areas.

It is an extremely spacious room and includes a grand walk-in robe and an elegant ensuite. All of the bedrooms in this home are of a very good size and would easily suit a variety of possibilities.

“This home would really suit a large family or even two couples that are looking into buying a holiday home. The size of the home and the versatility of the bedrooms would lend it very well to multiple people staying here,” Mr Stott said.

Set on 1.57 hectares of land the home includes an immaculate lawn area and enjoys views of the surrounding area and the forest that overlooks the property.

“The current owners have sheep on the land to keep the lawn down and you would easily be able to keep a horse on the property,” Mr Stott said.

A triple garage sits at the end of the pea asphalt driveway and a pea asphalt pathway borders another beautiful lawn area.

The size and beauty of this home is second to none and it showcases some very special features throughout the 585sqm interior living space, including exposed aggregate concrete flooring throughout the home.

New Office Fitout Has Serious Wow Factor

When it comes to office fitouts it’s fair to say that more times than not – the main focus is cost. According to local Perth office fitout company Capital Builders, the days of style and innovation seem to be long gone, having been replaced by cost efficiency, space maximisation, and a minimalist approach.  Noting this, when office design crafted with mind blowing creativity does surface, the industry tends to stand up and take notice.  Such seems to be the case with a recent project undertaken by Paragon Interiors.Read more
