In 2000, Allan and his partner, June, made the decision to build an off-the-grid house on 60 acres of land in the North Waikato.
The house was designed to be solar-efficient and has solar water heating. Wind and sun are use to generate all the electric power, which is stored in large batteries. Wood is used for heating and outdoor cooking, with gas used for indoor cooking and supplementary water heating.
The house was completed in 2004 and this new lifestyle led Allan, who is a talented engineer and designer, to develop a number of products that he believes might be interesting and useful for others who are keen on having an independent and sustainable lifestyle.
These products are all locally manufactured using high quality hot-dip galvanised wire mesh or stainless steel, so they are truly “Made in New Zealand” products.
Wilz has been helping out with our fencing products for some time and is young and enthusiastic about developing solutions to your lifestyle problems.
Allan will still be available in the background to help and advise when needed!
