Efficient, helpful and friendly service from the Queensland team at Kitome was a deciding factor when Barb and Glenn Evans chose to build a grand homestead, Rosehill House, at Dalby in the south-west of the Sunshine State. After sifting through dozens of kit home designs, Barb and Glenn set their heart on a Kitome design. This colonial-look design had the attributes they desired, such as a sweeping, timber-decked verandah and other elements that catered to their needs. To suit the whole family, modifications were made to the original design.

The interior is contemporary and comfortable, with heritage touches such as timber flooring and arches in the formal rooms. Mr Evans took a month off work and, with the help of two local builders for about six weeks, the off-the-ground home was at lock-up stage.

Mr Evans is a qualified electrician so he did all the wiring himself and local tradespeople were called upon to do anything the family was unable to tackle. The homeowners had nothing but praise for Kitome and the experts they employed, including plumbers, plasters and carpenters.

With a kit home, owners are usually prepared to put in a lot of hard work and time themselves. By doing that, they find that they can save quite a lot of money. After completing this home and being satisfied with the result, the Evans family are already planning their next Kitome project.
