Feb 24, 2014: Greeny Flat in the news

We had a very pleasant visit last week from Megan Drapalski, a reporter with the Southern Highland News, and we were honoured to find the following article in the local paper today. Thanks Megan, for a nice article that accurately and succinctly explains what we’re up to.

    Hi, We love the design and concept of the Greeny Flat. How much did it cost i.e breakdown of Solar and total cost.

      Hi Christian, thanks for visiting the Greeny Flat website and sorry about the slow response. I’ve been away on an extended trip and just got back. I plan to post more about the cost breakdown for the project very soon and I will send you an email to let you know when that information is up on the website. If you’re ever in the Mittagong area and would like to come and visit the flat you are more than welcome to do so. Regards, Andy.

    Hi Greeny-flat people,–I live in Mittagong and own a house adjoining Caravan park. I just found out about your house and went down to look at it.I’m 76 and have both epilepsy ( well controlled at present,and vertigo)I have always believed we should live on a much smaller environmental foot print but everyone seems to want “McMansions these days. I will have to leave here in a few years as its becoming more difficult to manage the walks to shops, surgery etc.From what I could see, its a perfect size for me and with high ceilings would be great for my grand piano with a little acoustic moderation.The cost you have listed as of 2014 would be much increased by now. So would like a closer estimate for todays costs. can you also e-mail me floor plans with dimensions? -and finally, if you are considering selling in near future, would you give me a first option? Also is it possible to inspect the home?
    thanks kindly,

    yours faithfully,
    Trevor Noffke

      Hello Trevor,

      Sorry to hear about the epilepsy and vertigo. I’ve read interesting things about Cannabis in the treatment of epilepsy. Is there anything to this?

      As for Greeny Flats I can say for certain that we won’t be selling ours any time soon. However I’m more than happy to discuss the options for getting one built for you.

      If you’ve been reading our Newsletter you’ll know that I’m currently in Montana until the end of October. After I return I’ll be more than happy to give you a tour of our place and talk about your plans. Depending on site conditions and finishes I think it should still be possible to build something similar for around $150k.

      I don’t have access to send you plans right now but will try to make that happen at the first opportunity.

      Please let me know when you get this by emailing me at the following address andylemann@gmail.com

      Regards,
      Andy Lemann
