ASK A QUESTION

Can you build my home for me?

If you do not have the time or inclination to build your own home, we recommend the following options:

  • Become an owner-builder, but pay local trades direct to erect your home for you. If you need an introduction to tradesmen in your local area, we can help.
  • The second option is to have a registered builder take on the whole project for you. This will cost more, but may better suit your circumstances. Again, we are happy to assist wherever possible in helping you secure a builder to construct your new Straight Edge steel framed home.

We’d like to make a few small changes to an existing plan, is that ok?

Absolutely. At Straight Edge Steel Frame Homes you can change our existing plans free of charge.

While you’re at it, you can also narrow down your window and door selections, select internal features, such as raked or coffered ceilings; and nominate your external cladding preferences.

Once your design is complete, we provide a quote for the supply of your new Straight Edge Steel Framed Home with all the features included.

Can you quote off our plans?

Yes, we can. As long as they are your plans and/or you own the copyright on the design.

We require at least a 1:100 floor plan and four elevations in order to quote for you. If you have drawn your own floor plan to scale, but without elevations, it will need to be sketched up in order to quote.

Straight Edge Steel Framed Drafting offers a competitively priced service to get this done. The fee is subtracted from the cost of your kit should you proceed with the purchase of your new home.

How much do Straight Edge homes cost to build?

This depends on a few variables, but it is possible to save from between 30% to 40%, compared to the cost of getting a builder to do the same home for you.

Obviously, the more you do yourself, the more you save – the faster the home is erected, the more you save.

The beauty with a kit home is that you control the budget and buy the fittings and fixtures, so you know exactly where your dollars are being spent, and can avoid paying more than you need to.

How long does it take to get my kit delivered?

Once you have purchased your new home, we immediately get busy preparing the engineering drawings for certification and organise an Energy Assessment, so you can submit your plans to shire and arrange a building permit.

By the time this is done and you have your site ready to receive your frames, about 90 days would have passed.

There are situations where we can produce and supply homes much faster depending on your individual circumstances. To find out more, email info@straightedge.net.au or phone (08) 9440 0929.
