Classic Style Home Built Using Timbercrete 'Sandstone' Bricks

Matching 'Sandstone' landscaping compliments Timbercrete 'Sandstone' bricks.
This beautiful home, built in Bellevue Heights SA, surely stands to impress with its elegant style of 'Sandstone' Timbercrete bricks and matching landscape artistry.

Not only does the home look great, however, with the thermal qualities of Timbercrete, the bricks provide nearly 7 times more insulation value than that of a standard clay brick while still performing as a thermal mass.

These bricks were hand-made in Timbercrete's Adelaide South plant just 25 minutes down the road in McLaren Vale. Not only does the local distance mean less energy costs in transport but the Timbercrete mixture being manufactured using local timber waste and Timbercrete bricks being air-dried, means a negative use in carbon output compared to the large volumes of carbon output produced through clay brick manufacturing.

The blocks on this home are manufactured with a 'Sandstone' finish, Timbercrete blocks can also come in a 'Cobbletsone' or 'Textured' finish and a variety of colours.

Mount Barker Double Brick Timbercrete . . . R3+

This Mount Barker (SA) Studio is being built using the Timbercrete 360 Series Cobblestone bricks. This will prove to be a very energy efficient structure with high wall insulation value and the blocks also having strong thermal mass.

The use of 10mm Foilboard insulation in the cavity pushes this wall to approx R3.

The use of 'Slithers' of Timbercrete blocks in this structure have given it a very unique look and the 'Cobblestone' finish certainly suits the feel in this rural setting of Mount Barker.

Beautiful Timbercrete Cobblestone Finish

Timber reveals around the windows and door frames are a great way to finish double brick cavities.
