    I know what you mean with the errands - family seem to save up time consuming BS for when we visit. My wife is the eldest and the father has now passed away, so she is 'head of the family'.

    Don't know if was said up thread, but for me a nice outdoor space is more important than the inside of the house. Especially in the evenings. Inside is more a place to sleep, and take refuge from the hottest part of the day.

    But anyway that's me - look forward to seeing your next design.

    I absolutely concur Bindog. I spend little time in the actual house except to watch some sports or go to bed. I would say that nearly 80% of our time is outside underneath the house where we have a nice breeze. IMHO unless required due to physical limitations (i.e can't go up and down stairs etc etc) I wouldn't build a house on a slab. The OP may find with that design he will spend virtually all his time in the house and likely with the AC running driving up electricity costs significantly. This could also be problematic if the power goes out frequently as the OP stated. In house no power, no air flow, big issue.

    Just a couple more thoughts for the OP

    +1 for outside area.. I see many house builders companies ( PD Homes, JP etc) sell homes almost without outside space, who look designed for small city lots and with a 2-3m2 balcony.

    As more information becomes available I will update you all .

    Oh by the way village water has died three times in one week and the electric supply twice so the advice on TK becomes more and more valuable, so thank you all.

    In my opinion all you need to maintain water for showering is an outside tank with pum contacted to your house water lines.
    The tank can be filled from a bore/well or the town supply.
    If the power failing regularly is an issue buy a small generator that you can run and plug your pressure pump into. The generator can also supply power for your bore pump to fill the tank.
