Steel Framed Kit Homes
Designed with the owner builder in mind, steel framed kit homes offer an affordable housing solution for rural and coastal Australian properties. Kit homes have been engineered with the safety of your family in mind; to be strong and stand up to the harsh Australian climate. These kit homes only use BlueScope Steel, which will further give you confidence you are investing in your family’s future.
The engineering takes inspiration from years of designing sheds; however, kit homes are far more detailed in their designs and have a higher level of construction. Large single and double storey designs are based on the classic home frame with stud wall framing and roof trusses but are manufactured from steel rather than other more traditional materials.
The ultimate look of your home is truly up to you, as not only do you get to choose your favourite COLORBOND® steel colour combination but you arrange for all doors, windows, fixtures and fittings that you want through external suppliers.
We are proud to share that all of our homes come with council approval guaranteed, this means one less worry for you throughout the kit home process.
The Kit Home Process
Steel kit homes are not for everyone, so please read all of the information below to gain a full understanding of what you can expect when you purchase a kit home from Sheds n Homes.
When you purchase a kit home from us, you will receive the components for the steel shell or structure of your new home. This includes the steel roof cladding, guttering, external wall sheeting, stud frame walls, bearers, joists, nuts, screws and bolts. We also supply you with the full engineering and floor plans, as well as a detailed construction manual.
This leaves you to source all of the remaining fixtures and fittings for your new home including flooring, windows, doors, lighting, gyprock, paint, kitchen fit out, and all other interior requirements. This enables you to achieve your dream look whilst keeping your kit home price and total costs down.
Why Choose a Steel Framed Home
Steel is far more sustainable and also resistant to termites compared to other materials. Steel framed homes can also save you precious budget as the strong yet lightweight components can be erected quickly and are easier to transport. And of course, with our council approval guarantee you can be sure of a smooth and efficient council application.
