What part of building a new home do people under estimate the importance of?2020-05-05T11:58:19+10:00

The biggest thing that most people don’t take into account is site orientation and house orientation. Pretty simple things to do if you know what you are doing.

It amazes me how many homes around Orange and any town you drive around and see that just to do the simple thing as far as orientation goes, with living areas that aren’t done correctly or no consideration has been given.

So the process is quite a lengthy process obviously from start to finish. We’ve got a document that details it quite well on our website.

What style of homes do you build?2020-05-05T11:30:05+10:00

So style of the home is a very personal thing, I like to get a feel for what style my customer is looking for initially. We build anything from traditional, contemporary, modern, off grid, energy efficient is really a must, sustainable so basically whatever you like we can build, we’ll design it and draw it to suit your needs and style, get a facade to match.

I want my home to be energy efficient – what are the most critical items?2020-05-05T11:47:39+10:00

So the first thing to address with efficiency and energy efficiency in your home is making sure you going to purchase a block with correct orientation. You want a block where you can orientate your house and your living areas in your house and main living areas where you are going to spend most of your time to a northern aspect.

Obviously you don’t really want a block that faces north being the road because it is very hard to have your living areas out the front of your house, so any block that face east, west or south you can work with and generally orient all your living areas to the northern sun. Which means in our climate in Orange, in this area in the Central West is that the advantage of having living areas on the north is we can take advantage of the northern winter sun which will help warm our homes and keep it bright, light through the winter months and cooler months.

How long does it take build a Custom Home?2020-05-05T11:30:21+10:00

So building your dream custom home, generally from the first day we start on site turning soil. Depending on the size and the complexity of the home, as a guide 4 1/2 – 6 months is a good guide from start to finish for a custom home.

Brad McKenzie

Where do you build homes?2020-05-05T11:30:28+10:00

Predominately it’s the Orange and surrounds, Orange, Millthorpe, Molong, Borenore, that sort of circumference. We will go for further, especially if it’s a house we really enjoy doing or clients that have a passion for building with energy efficiency and sustainability, I’ll always reach out and branch out a bit further, we’d go to Bathurst, Parkes, Forbes those sort of places, much further than that I haven’t really gone.

No. We have our own in-house drafting services so we can design, draft all your plans, do all council applications, approvals, everything prior to starting a build.
