Being competitive does not mean he has compromised on building quality homes to last. Our homes are built for the Central Queensland climate with a traditional slab and footing design, completely treated pine frames and trusses, termite protection, cyclone rated construction, Australian made Colorbond sheet roof made for longevity in the Aussie heat, insulated roof, with quality exterior and interior finishes to be chosen and customized by you to make your house a home.
Our favourite features of our homes are the traditional foundations that are a standard of all our builds. We are a firm believer in solid foundations that are built to last. Traditional slabs and footings are designed to withstand much more overtime than the relatively new waffle pod slabs that some builders are using.
The benefit of a traditional slab is that they are suitable for heavy rainfall or abrasive water-related weather conditions without compromising your home. Traditional slabs are also better suited to areas of sloping ground or soft ground conditions then a waffle pod construction.
Traditional slabs are created entirely from concrete and reinforced steel, with trenches dug and filled before installation to anchor the slab with deep footings.
The only real benefit of a waffle pod slab is that they are a lot cheaper than a traditional slab. We believe that the benefits of our traditional slabs far outweigh this cheaper cost, and that is why we are confident in the longevity of the homes that we create.
