My Ideal House

CSR is proud to be a part of the My Ideal House initiative to build a modern, sustainable family home in the new community, Crest by Mirvac in Sydney’s southwest.

A nationwide competition was held by Australian House & Garden to select a house design that is sustainable, flexible and future-proof for today’s families. Sydney architect Madeleine Blanchfield was selected with her design of a three bedroom home, open plan living areas and a double-car garage in a 230 square metre site.

CSR is supplying numerous products and technical advice for the construction of the house including CSR Gyprock, Bradford, Hebel and Viridian.

CSR also provided on site support for the installation of a Bradford 5.4kW Solar ChargePack that includes 5.4kW solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall 2 battery with built-in inverter and app control.

This set-up will see the future owners of My Ideal House save between $25,000 and $30,000 on their electricity bills over 10 years.

CSR’s Ashleigh O’Brien confirmed that the 5.4kW Bradford Solar ChargePack with Powerwall 2 will allow a family of four the ability to achieve up to 90 per cent self-sufficiency on an average day.

"Solar and home-battery storage is the future for energy management. It gives control back to individual households, enabling homeowners to store, use and manage their electricity as never before."
