Kit Homes - Rising Popularity in Australia
Kit homes have seen a rise in popularity in recent years due to their stylish designs, energy-efficiency and affordability. In addition, kit homes allow home owners to take part in their property’s construction, which can be a satisfying experience for many.
A kit home can be most simply defined as a home where most of the major components such as the framing is prefabricated in a factory and then delivered to your site where it is assembled. It is like putting a large “kit” together thus the name. The frame of the kit home is made from either treated pine or steel, depending on the design of the house, your personal preference, and your overall budget.
A kit home is designed and partially manufactured off site and then all the materials are delivered by truck to the construction site for assembly. Some kits have parts that will need to be cut and trimmed on site.
