A Carpenter’s dream a stunning new build, reverse brick veneer Colonial style house. Full of beautiful design features from verandas and back patio, timber awnings over most windows to feature gables.
Reverse brick veneer construction is a preferred form of construction as the thermal mass is inside the building not outside. In traditional brick veneer, the bricks are on the outside and they contribute very little to heating and cooling efficiency. When the bricks are on the inside combined with insulation, the heat and cold from the outdoors is not transmitted into the home as the bricks are protected from the external weather conditions. This gives you the huge advantage of interior temperatures remaining much more stable. The occupants of the home are also much more comfortable.
In winter, the bricks on the inside of the home can store the heat that is coming into the room (either from windows, or from heaters) and radiate it back into the room when it is needed. The insulation behind the bricks stops the precious heat from escaping. In summer, keeping the windows and doors closed means that heat doesn’t enter the home as easily, and the thermal mass acts to cool the interior. At night, you simply open the windows to allow the cooler air to dissipate any heat in the brickwork.
