ABOUT THIS HOME

Right from the outset, this one of a kind home was always going to be a challenging yet exciting build.

Firstly the 400+m2 home was to fit on a standard size house block, taking up majority of the buildable land and with no one wall being square the initial set-out was a very good pre-cursor for the build to come. The second major obstacle was the steepness of the block. After bulk excavation a large 2.5m high retaining wall needed to be built to hold back the clay hill above. Getting the multi-level foundations out of the ground towards the tail end of winter was a major milestone and somewhat of a relief.


YOUR HOME CAN TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE OR DULL YOUR VITALITY

With the expansive door openings, cantilevering floor sections, this home required a large amount of structural steel throughout the build. This required every wall line and measurement to be millimeter accurate to ensure the intricate design could be executed. The perfectly executed floating steel stairwell which had to be designed by the builder and steel fabricator demonstrates the level of craftsmanship and has become one of the stand-out features of the home.

WE ARE OUR 
​ENVIRONMENT

This exceptional home has so many features which make it unique, but for us one of the stand out attributes was the length of the continuous ceiling line from the front of the house to the back. The shear space of this void was something never before seen by our plaster or painter and the attention to detail to maintain a seamless finish throughout was first class.

WHAT WOULD LIFE BE LIKE 
​IN PARADISE?

The home’s electrical and lighting fitout was placed as a priority and there was no expense spared to achieve the fully integrated CBUS controlled home. The atmosphere created through the lighting is something to behold and is a credit to the client’s tenacious attitude towards this aspect of the home. Having said that, it also made construction around all of the cabling and lighting a challenge as every detail had to be pin-point accurate.

EXPANDING YOUR LIFE
​AND IMPACT STARTS AT HOME

Internal doors were all flush finish at a commanding 2.7m in height requiring two carpenters to handle the install. The enormous zero clearance custom made (Blackbutt Veneer) cavity slider was a feat on its own measuring 2.7m x 1.75m wide and stand, quite similar in stature to the grand pivot door at the entrance of the home.


DESIGN YOUR HOME
​TO HELP YOU GROW

Almost every aspect of this home can be listed as a once in a decade opportunity, however the most challenging aspect for our carpenters were the wall lines angled in all three dimensions and how this affected the roof connections and external cladding.

A BEAUTIFUL SPACE

At every stage of this build we were presented with challenges and our team has learnt a great deal throughout the 12 month build. The end result is by far the most elaborate project completed by Davies Construction and is one we are very proud of.
