About the project

This spacious contemporary home is a replacement dwelling, where the customer's architectural plans have been taken to the technical drawing stage to manufacture their home in our timber frame ULTIMA system. The project will be at the weathertight stage, just before the plasterboard stage so an ideal opportunity to see how our wall systems work to help plan your self build.
