Ahoy-hoy from Woy Woy!
Kit homes have become popular all around the world for their stylish design, customisation options and affordable pricing. We take a look at our Kit Homes Woy Woy project in the lovely coastal town of Woy Woy, near Gosford and the Central Coast of NSW.
Mario approached us with a clear idea of the Avila Kit Home they wanted to create for an investment. We began working with them in November 2016 to create the granny flat plans, with some customisations to suit local council requirements. Delivery of materials and construction began in July 2017 and we have been following their progress closely over the last few months.
Mario and his family wanted to upgrade their external cladding to our premium Weathertex Primelok offering that allows for quick and easy installation. The veranda that they had planned would complement their original dwelling nicely. A hurdle that Mario encountered was that the local council imposed build height limits, since the flat would be in a flood provision area. Our expert team of designers and drafters collaborated to change the roof pitch height, ensuring the Kit Homes Woy Woy would comply with council building standards.
iBuild worked closely with Mario to ensure timely deliveries of all the sub-kit parts, starting with the floor kit in July 2017. The process of selecting components for their granny flat, including colour choices, was painless for all involved. The team at iBuild was in constant communication with Mario to guarantee that the components required for the build would arrive as progress was made on Kit Homes Woy Woy.
Mario chose to save thousands on construction costs and become an owner builder, overseeing the construction process with the help of his son. We helped Mario with proper documentation and instructions on the build process in this DIY construction. The Avila home was completed earlier this year, with a modern grey exterior and a stylish living area fitted with Merbau flooring. Mario has also installed a rainwater tank system to increase the sustainability of his new kit home!
