My wife and I have put in an offer on a block and signed the PPA with Ben Trager on a custom designed home. Found after looking around that I really appreciated the Ben Trager style and learning more about their construction techniques for upper floor, I always wanted Structural Insulated Panels and this is as close you can get to it without going full custom.
Saw many of their display homes and after realising that none of the base designs ever quite fit what we needed, we asked for our consultant (who we were so lucky to get) to bring us a design based around a few key guidelines and this is what he came up with.
Things we wanted:
- Activity Room for Minors
- Ample Backyard - this leaves about 6.5m backyard on 30m block with 4.5 metre front
- Open Layout
- Guest with Ensuite
- Master bed with ability for wall mount TV
- Ensuite as shown.
- No Balcony
- Upstairs Theatre which will accommodate our current Projector setup.
- Sitting Room which will be Study/Nursery
We are really happy with the overall design at this stage.This will be built generally to their Benchmark Specification.
