Client/company

Our client is an artist and sculptor that wanted to custom design a shed house himself and manage the project as owner builder. 

The brief 

Our client put together a small cardboard model of his dream house which gave us an exact visual brief of his requirements. We collaborated with him to provide a practical and economic design whilst maintaining his original concept.

Challenges and solutions 

The location for the house had a significant slope that needed to be leveled before construction could begin. Careful consideration went into getting the levels right for posts and stumps for the building. 

Our client had a unique idea of having a large space under the main floor for a carport. We custom engineered and designed the shed house to accommodate this idea.
