Why aren't all houses kit homes? It's hard to say. They're so easy to build you can do it yourself, piece by piece and, just like normal homes, can be tailored to your own requirements. Oh, and they are much, much less expensive.
The fact of the matter is that many homeowners throughout Australia have realised that kit homes are the way to go. And not just any kit homes, but steel frame kit homes. Below we'll give you their take on why steel kit homes are the preferred choice.
Indeed, they do. Steel, unlike wood or many other materials, can withstand the test of time, as well as the elements. While many other kit home types are subject to the influence of heat or water, steel frame kit homes will stay in the exact same shape as the day it was built. You'll also find that many homeowners choose the steel frame for its resistance to fire as well as termites, meaning they save in the long run when disaster strikes.
We needn't elaborate on the strength of steel - it's a well known physical property. However, it is this very strength that eliminates the need for load bearing walls, which means that as potential homeowner, you'll be able to design rooms of almost any size to get as close to your ideal living space as possible.
Yes it is! Global warming is an established fact and is partly attributed to deforestation that occurs on a global scale. Steel frame kit homes provide the benefit that they are eco-friendly - no trees have been harmed in the making of the steel frame. And, as an additional benefit, you'll be glad to know that you can choose to build your home from partly recycled steel. If you're concerned about the environment, then this is the way to go.
The impressive strength-to-weight ratio, the increased spans and the light weight of the steel frame means that you have more freedom when it comes to the design. Your wife will love the idea that the space you need is the space you'll get.
Additionally, steel frame kit homes meet the highest wind and seismic rating of the national building codes. When nature's fury is unleashed, steel frame kit homes are the homeowner's best friend.
As a potential homeowner, we'll advise you to take the time and make a list of the things you expect from your future home. It needn't be a long list, but should cover the most important aspects. These include the safety of you and your family as well as your possessions. And, when you're done, compare it to the advantages of a steel frame kit home. While each type of kit home has its own advantages, only steel frame kit homes have the ability to remain true to its physical properties for decades to come.
