Acreage Home Designs

Do you dream of having your own rural retreat? With enough land to enjoy peace and tranquillity, and a buffer between you and the ever encroaching world?

As a leading rural home builder, Civic Steel Homes can give you this getaway tranquility by creating a spacious new home, designed to tick all of your personal space requirements with fewer design compromises than those in the inner city.

From a building point of view, large blocks usually have fewer challenges than dealing with tight, narrow suburban blocks. This allows your custom acreage home design to develop with more freedom throughout the design stage.

However, be aware that there may be quite a few additional costs associated with building on acreage blocks. For example, you may need additional power, usually 3-phase for the length of the run. You might also have to consider the costs of longer access driveways, additional sewerage treatment plant costs, plus water tanks and water harvesting costs. Your acreage home may also be subject to bushfire rated construction requirements, or need higher wind ratings for windows and wall bracing. All of these are assessed in our first two meetings to give you a realisitic idea of your total project budget.

On top of the site costs, a project builders’ standard designs for acreage may not satisfy all your requirements and the best outcome for the site.

The benefits of a custom acreage home builder.

The approach for rural house designs or acreage home designs often requires out-of-the-box solutions for capturing the wide panoramic views and prevailing breezes normally associated with country home designs.

Civic Steel Homes understand that great acreage house designs require the building to have a considered relationship to the land and different requirements to inner-city areas. Our Architect will factor in aspects such as water conservation, attention to correct orientation and details such as bushfire requirements and waste treatment. We will also make the most of designing for your best views, never forgetting a strong emphasis on the ideal northern aspect.
