Embrace a truly unique living experience with a distinctive Alternate Dwellings home
Capturing the essence of Australian life on the land with sprawling verandahs and meandering decks, Alternate Dwellings’ ever-popular designs bring all the comforts of modern homestead living together in one smart building package.
Producing a 100 per cent Australian product, Alternate Dwellings makes everything from the raw materials to the finishing touches at its factory in Morwell, Victoria. “By producing our own timber, we can control the quality and ensure no imported timber is used in our kits,” says managing director Glenn Brooks. “This enables us, along with the option of the latest environmentally friendly termite and weather treatments, to truly guarantee the product we make.” Making kits in both lock-up and finished packages, Alternate Dwellings gives you the freedom to create your home your way.
Alternative homes and barns
Unlike most manufacturers, Alternate Dwellings offers a wide range of construction options. With the choice to manage your own builder or have Alternate Dwellings arrange the construction for you, the company makes choosing and building a new home easier and far more flexible — especially with the introduction of the Building System range that delivers greater cost savings and flexibility for minimum occupancy requirement constructions.
This choice continues with the range of windows, verandahs, decking, board types, stair kits and timber treatments, a breadth of options equally matched by the number of build items that comes standard. This includes handcrafted colonial windows, Colorbond roofing and spouting, solid timber stair kit and upstairs sheet flooring on all loft designs.
A fourth-generation building family since 1920, Alternate Dwellings’ unique building system and manufacturing process have been refined over many years to produce the homes and barns it is famed for today. From charming bed-and-breakfast cottages to expansive homesteads, Alternate Dwellings has something perfect for you. Their range of alternative homes and barns will provide a great home for years to come.
