Rural building company - Acreage home builders

Rural building company

As we are located in the Yass Valley we understand the requirements of country living. Just because you live in the country doesn't mean that country style homes have to conform to a specific style. However, they must be practical, suited to country living and suited to your site and your needs. We understand that a home and its environment should be as one, whether that environment be in the country or country urban.

Acreage home builders

So you are, or you are thinking about, living "The Good Life"; that is living on acreage in Murrumbateman or the wider Yass Valley region. Living on acreage has a lot of appeal; the privacy, the fresh air, space for the kids, and life at a pace that you set.  Likewise when it comes to designing and building your dream home you have a blank canvas. So what is an acreage or country style home: whatever you want it to be? Our job is to match your needs to the your acreage; we work you to incorporate both style and functionality to country living

Imagine Homes understands that lifestyle is about personal choice and values, about individuality, design, image, sustainability, romance and flair. Rather than follow rules, we take your needs, match them to your site and write our own. You will not find a swathe of Australian country home designs on this site - we simply do not build in this manner. There a great advantages to an acreage home: there are usually no nearby neighbours to be concerned about, boundary setbacks are the least of your worries and being "overlooked" - is there such a thing?  You have a degree of flexibility and freedom; however, just like any of our other projects our Design Team will take the time to study and understand your block of land; its microclimate, solar orientation, the views, slope and prevailing breezes. Once we have gathered this information we marry it up with your needs and requirements to build a home fit for the environment and fit for you.

Considerations when building on acreage

Whether you have endless acres or small acreage, passive design must be married to the use of the land and your family's lifestyle requirements. Building on acreage is not something the average builder understands. As we live on acreage ourselves we understand the additional considerations related to power, waste treatment, the catching and storing of water, fencing, access roads, bushfire prevention, windbreaks, telephone/ internet options, and ongoing maintenance just to name a few.
