What do our Sunshine Coast Kit Home packages look like?

Essentially our kit homes will comprise of the skeleton or bones required to build your new home. Typically, this will include:

  • The steel framing (internal walls, external walls and roof trusses)
  • External windows and/or eternal doors
  • Roof insulation & wall sarking
  • Your suspended steel floor system (if you are choosing to build in this manor)
  • Corrugated roof sheets and wall cladding
  • Soffit boards to eaves
  • Engineering of all of the above & documentation to accompany this
  • It will be up to you as the owner builder to supply all other remaining items. Plus, you can contact the trades & professional consultants that you want. Having friends and relatives in the industry can be very helpful when it comes to building your own home – having input from these people may even make the connection to the build more significant for you.

    All of our owner builder clients come from different walks of life, have different living and working arrangements and have different timeframe requirements. Choosing a Sunshine Coast kit home allows you to work within your own schedule, at your own pace.

    How to choose the correct kit home?

    While we have dozens of pre-designed plans to select from, the design is controlled by your imagination. We find that most kit home builders will start with one of our pre-designed plans and modify to suit their land and the building orientation.
    Provided you are ticking all of the Sunshine Coast Council and building regulation requirements, you should be free to build what you like. Having said that, it will be important to keep a tally of your own costings, to save any heartache. Most banks won’t lend to owner builders, so you will need to finance the build yourself entirely. It is imperative to stay on top of your budget and have a good idea of how much your chosen design will cost to build.

    Choosing to build a Sunshine Coast kit home has many clear advantages, for those with the time and the knowhow. There is no doubt that building a kit home yourself will save you money in the long run. Contact our friendly team today if you would like to begin your dream home building journey.
