Nine different James Hardie products were used in the construction of the Smarter Small Home.

James Hardie materials in Smarter Small Home prototype

An affordable home prototype was launched at the 2009 UDIA Congress. The creators of the Smarter Small Home have shown that a small lot, small house, smart material choices and efficient construction can deliver a stylish, sustainable and very affordable home.

Designer Brett Blacklow used nine different James Hardie or Scyon products in the Smarter Small Home design. “Nothing can touch a few of the James Hardie products price-wise,” he says. The durability, construction-efficiency and design-flexibility of the products were also key factors in their inclusion in this innovative project.
