Timber Frame and Double Brick – Sustainable and Energy Efficient.

After completing all of their research, Bruce and Margaret Matthews had decided upon a timber framed double brick home to be the backbone of their new home in Maylands, Western Australia.

In looking for a builder to build this home, they found that not many had the skill set and knowledge to build for them, but when they found Highbury Homes they did. To mutual delight, the couple were able to work with Highbury Homes to incorporate the two materials and build a sustainable and energy efficient home.

The site was a challenging site, but Highbury had the right skill set to provide a solution in line with what the Matthews wanted to do to complete the build. “Their (Highbury’s) versatility of knowing sustainable products and willingness to work with us was great” says Bruce Matthews.

In the words of Margaret Matthews “Not only were Highbury Homes the only ones that would do what we wanted to do, but it was their level of quality and the confidence that we would get a good result with them, that sold me on using them”.

According to Bruce Matthews, “the entire process went really well from our end. Like in any innovative build project a few issues arose but it was great that we were able to get them fixed and work together. I was happy how they worked together with us to deliver our dream home. “

“The team at Highbury Homes were really enthusiastic about how different our concept was, they were really into the new sustainable concept as much as we were.”

If achieving a dream home such as this the Matthews highly recommend attending one of the many “hard hat tours” that Highbury Homes offer prospects at no obligation. During the tour Highbury Homes outline the many hidden factors that are taken into account during the design and construction process to ensure that the finished house performs at its optimum and provides maximum liveability to its occupants.
