What the builder says...


Franky and Josephine have chosen to build a design called the ‘Carmelle 31’, which is one of our best-selling homes – in addition to the living and dining areas, it has a separate theatre room and leisure room. This design is also great for entertaini­ng because the timber stacker doors open up the whole middle of the house to the alfresco area. The floor plan works really well, too, and this is perhaps the number-one way to add value to your home: if it’s functional for you, then it will most likely work for another family. Most people choose to build because they’ve looked in the establishe­d market and can’t find a floor plan that works for them. Often with the bigger builders like us, customers think they don’t get anything included in the base price and aren’t allowed to make changes, but there’s a magnitude of choices in terms of colours, finishes and style, even without upgrading. Franky and Josephine made a few additions, such as installing 40mm Caesarston­e benchtops – 20mm is standard – and an undermount sink, externally upgrading the bricks and render and extending the alfresco area. It comes down to what you want to spend your money on. Even if you go with standard choices, you’ll still have a beautiful home.
