Premium-quality kit homes that are easy to build and built to last
Countrybuilt has deliberately taken a different pathway in the design and supply of kit homes, specialising in residences that are unashamedly premium. From the beginning, Countrybuilt’s philosophy has been to supply homes that are unlike any other kit home — homes that don’t look or “feel” like kit homes typically do.
Countrybuilt is a family-owned company that has been in the building industry since the 1970s. It has divisions that specialise in project-built homes, modular homes and kit homes throughout eastern Australia.
Premium construction methods
A Countrybuilt home is built differently to typical kit construction methods. Houses are constructed using fully welded steel frames and trusses. This superior system produces homes of high quality. Frames are welded in long sections so that erection is simple and achieving straight fascia and gutter lines is easy. Roof trusses are fully assembled and welded, ready for bolting into position.
The weight and strength of the sections that the framework is manufactured from are far superior to regular steel framing. Most riveted steel frames from alternate suppliers are between .5 and .75mm in thickness. Sections that Countrybuilt use are between 1mm and 1.5mm thick. While this makes the frame more expensive, it is stronger, termite-resistant and easier to erect. Countrybuilt’s verandahs are also steel framed. These are manufactured in a steel flush design “box” span system with steel posts. This ensures there is no twisting, warping or movement and requires minimum upkeep.“The updated 2016 range is cutting edge in country design and all can be modified to suit individual requirements”
Australia’s most complete kit
Countrybuilt prides itself on providing the most complete kit homes. The company fits homes with only the best when it comes to inclusions. Along with the premium frames, trusses and a verandah system, Countrybuilt provides all windows and doors, hardware, full insulation to walls, a ceiling and roof blanket, lintels for brick veneer, plumbing and electrical materials, BlueScope Colorbond roofing and gutters, plasterboard lining and fix-out materials, plus kitchens and bathrooms with waterproofing, vanities, appliances and an electric-boost heat-pump hot-water system.
2016 design range
The current design range is the work of a team of professional architectural designers. The brief given to the designers was to provide innovative, good-looking homes that didn’t look like kit homes, with floorplans that flowed and were modern to suit current lifestyle trends. Pictured are just a few of the vast selection of designs Countrybuilt offers. The updated 2016 range is cutting edge in country design and all can be modified to suit individual requirements.
Countrybuilt delivers to all areas across Australia. The company can adjust the timing to suit you, delivering particular materials as you need them. Homes are delivered on customised trucks, normally with an on-board forklift for unloading. Countrybuilt takes great care in the delivery of your home, packing your kitchen, vanities and fragile items in custom-wood purpose-built boxes so they will not be damaged in transit and are cared for properly on-site until they are ready to use.
