The clients wanted a large home for a growing family to expand into, and had very specific desires for the different parts of the home. This one was all about the detail, detail, detail.


Much of this home, such as the kitchen cabinets, were custom made and brought in from interstate. The client was very clear in their selections, and the quality expected was second to none. The best word to describe this home is 'Quality'.


A flat block, but on the side of a hill with large retaining walls either side, meant that there were major water containment issues that needed addressing, to ensure that the property would be safe from waterlogging. The size of the home also made for very wide roof spans, which required extraordinary construction skills. The end result was a construction crew that had their eyes on the ball at all times and who left nothing on site to chance, and a homeowner’s dream that became a reality!

"It's like living in a 24/7 resort style home"

Building my home with Edward Brewer homes was a joy, the design was difficult because of the steep slope and large open plan. It took only 10 months to build after the slab was down. Our home has a lot of northern light with multiple rooms and spaces we use at different times of the year. It's like living in a 24/7 resort style home.
