Window of opportunity

Building a luxury home may seem counterproductive to the concept of sustainability. The current popularity of the “not so big” house (a term you may have heard from Susan Susanna’s series of books by the same name) and the even smaller subculture of the “tiny house” undoubtedly illustrate a greener way to build, with less material needed and smaller spaces to heat and cool. But these homes are often impractical for a family of more than…one. You can rid yourself of half your possessions, but it’s likely you’ll still want a room of your own, a bit of space to

When Hailey Cavill and Tyrone Jaspers decided on a tree change, it was Warburton’s artistic community, 75-minute commute time to Melbourne and nearby trout-fishing streams that beckoned. They started to question their needs and wants after being «underwhelmed» by existing houses on the market, deciding instead to build from scratch. For the couple, who originally met in 2000 when Hailey rented a house owned and built by Tyrone in Port Melbourne, their Warburton abode was their first joint building project.

An Internet search uncovered an overgrown but intriguing 1.5-hectare block with a spring running through it that played host to

Sony BDP-S790

A quite remarkable device, this Sony sounds great, has a wonderful picture in 2D or 3D and is crammed with on-demand content including Sony’s own Movies Unlimited. Its trump card is 4K video upscaling: you may not need it yet. but you soon will.




Panasonic DMP-BDT220

It’s not the most extravagantly specified Blu-ray player around (though Panasonic’s remote-control app is a joy), but the BDT-220 has the sort of picture- and sound quality to make its price look like a misprint. And that’s our favourite kind of mistake.

San Diego is also a military city, being home to the US Navy’s largest naval base on the West Coast. Just 20 miles from the border with Mexico, San Diego has also, within the last 15 years,
