Alternate Dwellings’ ever-popular designs capture the essence of Australian living with sprawling verandahs, bringing all the comforts of homestead living together into one smart building package. You can now select from the company’s collection of fully featured home designs or create a simpler ‘Building System’ design, built to your exact needs and budget.

Alternate Dwellings’ Building System homes offer greater cost savings and flexibility by building a more basic shell to minimum occupancy requirements and adding only the features you require.

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.

Unlike most manufacturers, Alternate Dwellings offers more construction options than others do. 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 more flexible. That choice continues with the range of windows, verandahs, decking, board types, stair kits and timber treatments. This breadth of options is equally matched by the number of build items that come standard, including 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 has been refined over many years to produce the homes and barns it is renowned for today. From charming bed and breakfast cottages to expansive homesteads, Alternate Dwellings has something perfect for you.
