What to Expect

The Barn is a self-reliant house in electrical power and water supply, the house is purely powered by solar panels. Because of this one does have to be efficient with power usage, we do advice you to use any equipment that uses high consumption of power such as the washing machine and dish washer, during the day when the sun is out, it is also advised to turn things such as lights and fans off if not in use. As long as power is not wasted The Barn is easily capable of powering the house through the day and night.

The Barn does have a landline, however phone signal and internet is currently not available, you can though easily get Wi-Fi at local restaurants for a very small fee and phone signals with 3G can be found at the Alexandra range look out which is about a 10 minute drive.

One thing to also note is that The Barn is designed to be opened to nature and because of its solar passive design this house naturally keeps itself cool at all times, therefor there are no flyscreens or air conditioning.
