Custom Designs In Casey
There are many beautiful home designs in the Stroud Homes portfolio, but sometimes a client has a clear vision in mind as to what their perfect home looks like.
Custom builds make up to 20% of Stroud Homes builds and they are the perfect choice so that you get exactly what you want out of your new home.
Caleb Townsend from Stroud Homes explains the custom design process in Casey. “When a customer wants changes to our plans, they first make an appointment with myself in the office, then we sit down and chat about their ideas and why that is more beneficial than our standard plan.”
The next step is to draw up the changes so that the customer can visualise what the changes will mean for the home. “Once they are 100% happy with the floor plan and a decision to build has been made, the draftees draw up the working drawings.”
Caleb tells us that the plan change consultation are obligation free with no charge. “It’s just another service we offer to ensure customer satisfaction.”
Recently, Stroud Homes Casey completed a custom acreage home in Lilydale. This home was built to make the most of the block’s panoramic mountain views.
The 389m2 (42 sq) home has been lovingly designed to incorporate five separate living areas, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study and a double garage.
Caleb says, “The owners are over the moon with the quality, professionalism and service they received during the build. They love the final product.”
We are also very proud of our work and team, this home will be entered into 2018 Excellence Housing Awards.
Caleb’s favourite feature of the home is Pillarless Alfresco Entrance, “When the doors are fully opened the whole living area seems to double in size!”
This home is located in a Bush Fire Attack Zone and according to the Building Code of Australia, construction in this area needs to follow specific requirements.
The Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of this home is a BAL 19 which means that it is 18 to less than 26 metres from threat. There are a number of requirements Stroud Homes builders incorporate into a design so that it means the code.
For example, the garage doors need to have a fire-resistant frame, windows must have 5mm of toughened glazing and fly and security screens must have aluminium wire not poly wire to name a few. This ensures that the home is made as safe as possible against potential bushfire threat.
