Minimbah - 'home of the teacher'
Minimbah, an old Aboriginal name for Forster was chosen by the owners when they found out it meant 'home of the teacher'. Approval to use the name was sought from the local land council and Minimbah it is!
Minimbah is the ultimate in recycling! A house which began its life in Hawks Nest travelled to a house supermarket in Cooranbong before being purchased by the owners, who then transported it to its new home, built underneath and extended around with a large 3 metre deck. The majority of timber used in its construction is also recycled, water is solar heated and water treatment is onsite as we try to keep its footprint to a minimum. Cooling ceiling fans are installed in every room and there is excellent cross ventilation through the open plan living, kitchen and dining areas.
