Are you thinking of becoming an Owner Builder? Owner building is quickly becoming a very popular way to build your new home while saving thousands of dollars.
Owner Building Saves Money
Assembling your kit and managing contractors such as plumbers and electricians can significantly reduce the cost of your total build. You will have control of materials, fittings and fixtures that will suit your budget. Owner building also allows you to pay for items as you need them, rather than a lump sum up front.
By managing the construction of your kit home, you will have much more control of the actual construction. You will also be able to build at your own pace to suit your free time and budget.
Flat packs consist of :
- Steel Frame and Trusses (supplied as either flatpack or pre-assmbled panels)
- External Cladding
- External Windows and Doors
- Roof sheeting
- Gutters and Barge Capping
- Downpipes to ground
- Engineered Certified Plans
- Construction Manual
Optional Steel Flooring :
- Particle Board Flooring
Mecano use a high tensile steel framing system that is both affordable and easy to assemble. The automated wall and truss framing machines ensure that no cutting or drilling is necessary.
All components are pre-punched, notched and dimpled from the automated roll-forming machines, allowing walls to be quickly and easily assembled with a tek screw gun.
The steel frame can either be delivered to the customer in a portable ‘flat-pack’, or alternatively, wall panels can be pre-assembled (depending on location)
Our Kit Homes are NOT Shed Homes
Please note that a Mecano kit home is not a ‘shed home’. A Mecano kit home is designed with proper stud wall frames (similar to timber stud frame frames) so that the external cladding and internal lining is ready to be fixed directly to the frames.
