Why Owner Builders Love Steel Edge Kit Homes

There are many reasons why Western Australia’s Owner Builders are choosing kits from Straight Edge Steel Frame Homes.

Eight of them are: 

1: Straight Edge Steel Frame Kit Homes are quick to build and quoted at a fixed price. 

2: The company works with WA suppliers.

3: Truecore steel is used, which has a 50-year warranty from Bluescope

4: The steel frames are rustproof, fireproof, termite proof and rot proof.

5: Straight Edge Steel Frame Kit Homes are eco-friendly with little or no material waste.

6: The strength of steel framing has been proven in cyclonic areas, including WA’s north. 

7: Straight Edge Kit Homes are suitable for family homes.

8: Straight Edge Kit Homes can be delivered to Metro sites in Perth as well as regional areas.

Structurally superior

The company specialises in structurally superior home packages fabricated for use in cyclone-prone areas. It supplies them throughout the state: Great Southern, South West, Gold Fields, Esperance, Mid West and North West. 

Steel frame kits available now are:

  • Granny flats;
  • The Studio self-contained accommodation;
  • The Sleepout (master bedroom size);
  • Cottages;
  • Roomy single level homes; and
  • Spacious two-storey homes.

Among the kits, the choice includes, The Entertainer, The Gable Two Storey and The Getaway. These stylish kit homes have clean, classic profiles that will stand the test of time. Their layouts are functional, making them easy to live in. 

Customised designs

Owner Builders who have their own home plan can access Straight Edge’s professional drafting service. However, the beauty of steel frame kits is their complete design flexibility enabling changes to suit individual needs. 

As well, Straight Edge Steel Home Kits can easily be adjusted to suit awkward sites, from narrow urban blocks to the difficult contours of hilly terrain. Scott knows how to deal with site issues, and in some cases, a steel-framed kit or customised home can overcome the need for expensive site works.

Instruction manual

Kit home and customised home packages arrive at site with all components needed to erect the structure, including approvals, plans, sealants, nuts, bolts, fittings, and a step-by-step instruction manual. 

Insulation is part of the kit: Aircell Glareshield roof insulation with R3 Insulation Batts for the cavity between the ceiling and the Colorbond roofing. Aircell Permishield or Insulbreak exterior wall insulation, plus R1.5 Insulation Batts.

If Owner Builders have any queries, they need not hesitate to call Straight Edge for expert advice. In contrast to larger companies, director Scott Elsley can be reached directly on his mobile.

From start to finish, Owner Builders deal with Scott unless they have engaged a Registered Builder, who can then be the go-between. Scott is happy to introduce clients to contractors and Registered Builders who have proven experience in building steel framed homes
