Neatly tucked away is the workshop, machinery area and garden shed!! The wood for the fire is also stored in here next to the hydraulic hoist. The fish pond filter, and vacuum maid, large Quantum hot water heat pump with a reticulation pump (this runs the hot water in a circuit so that when you turn a tap on the hot water is there instantly, saving water), and the solar panel inverter make up the machinery in here. Double screened aluminium slatted doors give access to outside for all gardening needs. The reason for the slatted doors both ends of this area are for air circulation. The garden beds above this area have all been waterproofed to stop any moisture coming through the brick work or the rock causing a damp or musty smell.

The pool is automatic fill, as is the fish pond and water feature by the driveway. The Vergola roof above the pool is rain sensor controlled. On the outside are blinds that can be operated by C-Bus or manually to reduce the early morning sun. The glass bi-fold doors open back to give full access to the deck.
An 11 KVA generator is housed under the deck which has been insulated with panelling to reduce the noise. The generator supplies sufficient power to run the essentials, eg: refrigerator in the kitchen, power points on the kitchen bench, power in the studio and entertainment. The pool heater is under the deck as well.
There are two 10,000 gallon water tanks; these are fitted with a volume fill gauge. In the tank is a horizontal submersible pump which supplies water via a sludge filter, UV steriliser and carbon filters to the house.
The sewerage treatment plant is an Ozzi Kleen and is serviced every 3 months.
The yard has been extensively landscaped to include a running creek, board walk and lighting. The plastic lined dam holds approximately 60,000 gallons of water for the garden. There are two pumps, one for the garden which has seven solenoid stations and one for the artificial creek running down the side of the house. All the ground water is caught and goes to the dam, the roof water goes through leaf catchers into a first flush tank that takes out first flush water, and the balance goes into the tank. When the tanks are full the overflow goes to the dam and when the dam is full it goes over the spillway and under the road down the gully.
Bordering the property on the southern side is Crown Land.
