If you have always wanted an addition on your property, a steel frame kit granny flat or studio from Straight Edge is ideal. Whether it is for visitors, the in-laws, a growing teenager or just a hobby room, a kit granny flat or studio is the perfect solution to solving space restrictions in your home.
Protect your vehicle from the harsh Australian weather with standard and custom steel kit carports. If you are wetting your toes in the DIY department then this is a great first project.
Even though we do not build the kit homes for you, depending on your area, we are happy to introduce you to contractors or registered builders who have worked with our clients before to construct your home.
Our homes can be built on concrete slabs and steel suspended floor systems, depending on your chosen site. Upon purchasing a kit home from us, we can advise you on what the best option would be to begin construction. We suggest that you provide us with a contour survey and a soil test report.
All Straight Edge’s steel frame homes come with a user friendly owner builder’s manual to help you construct your home with ease and confidence, regardless of your level of building experience.
Should you experience any problems throughout the process, do not hesitate to contact the expert team at Straight Edge.
