Emily - Reading book home

At Forrest Small Homes we can lead you through the process of design and delivery of your new home.

Our experienced in-house architect and design team will listen to your needs and wants and can optimise one of our model houses to suit your site, stage of life, need for light and aesthetic preferences. Our team will guide you through the options available to make one of our models your own.

For example, our 3 bedroom (90sqm) model has been designed with the flexibility to be a primary residence on a property or a secondary dwelling. Our first step is to analyse your site to determine the particular opportunities and constraints of your property; and the most likely route for approval.

Key design principles guiding the layout of the 3 bedroom model:

  • A solution for a family with flexibility of space, light, ventilation and storage wherever possible.
  • Open plan kitchen/living/dining with cathedral ceilings and direct access to alfresco eating either front or back
  • Comfortable/large bedrooms with storage
  • Simple, beautiful bathrooms with options for inclusion of a bath tub
  • Centrally located, compact laundry with bench space for utility

Options include:

  • To extend the living room
  • To extend the main bedroom to allow for a walk in wardrobe
  • Provide a bath to one or both bathrooms.
  • Decks to either or both the front and rear
  • Carport or garage
  • Special features such as reading windows, serving bench to deck and in roof storage
  • First floor addition for main bedroom, ensuite and sitting room – removes one bathroom downstairs.

Sustainability

Sustainability is at the core of our thinking, wherever possible we have integrated passive solar principles

  • All rooms have access to natural light
  • Natural ventilation is provided to rooms wherever possible
  • Provision of high insulation levels to external walls, floors, ceilings and roofs.
  • Double glazing in all windows and doors included in base model pricing.
  • BASIX 7* compliance and the ability to upgrade

All of this ensuring that the house will deliver comfort with very low use of heating and cooling which translates to money in your pocket.
