Our drafting services ensure that the home you build with us is tailor made to your tastes and living requirements.
Our Inclusions list can be fully customised and we ensure there are
no hidden costs.

Drop by our Display Centre and office at 51 Princess Street, Bundaberg East, call us on (07) 4159 0222, or email us with any queries you may have.

Home Inclusions, Everything You Need To Know

Just as every person is unique, so are the homes they live in! Each and every home we build is customised to suit individual tastes and budgets. Therefore the list of Inclusions and every quote is individually assessed, and the Inclusions are adjusted to suit the owner's taste and requirements. Our Inclusions are also created with the home owner in mind, not just the interests of the builder. Complete flexibility for the home owner is what it's all about.  Every effort is made during the building process to match Inclusions as close as possible to the original stated, if in the event changes are necessary or required.

This list below is included for demonstration purposes, and contains our most standard home Inclusions. This list is subject to change, so speak to us about your requirements and we will tailor a quote and inclusions for you.
