It’s not hard to find reasons for wanting a tree change. What’s not to love about living out the Australian dream – a beautiful homestead on a sprawling block, a laid-back coastal community and summer weather without the heat.
We all know that the thought of packing up your city lifestyle and moving to a slower paced regional town can be daunting, but it can also be extremely rewarding. With a bit of help and forward planning, your dream could be a reality sooner than you think. There’s no time like the present to consider that tree change – and the Great Southern is the perfect place to start.
We talk a lot about indoor/outdoor living and there is no better example of this, than Albany with nature virtually on your doorstep. Protected bays, unspoilt beaches, diving, whale-watching, fishing, nature drives and endless parklands – there are so many ways to connect with the outdoors.
Building a home in this area takes experience. Knowing that framed construction or brick veneer is the best option for the area’s reactive soil types, being confident to build a house on stumps to capture views from a sloping site, using thicker slab, better insulation and non-corrosive materials, and knowing that a home in this area demands greater wind-loading requirements – all this local knowledge goes into every home we build.
