How Long Does It Take To Build A New Home?

Many builders say they can build a house in eight weeks, 12 weeks, that sort of thing. It’s usually not clarified how they calculate that figure. We would rather be honest and give you a conservative time to build your house.

We allow two months for the documentation and building approval and depending on what we’re doing on the houses we should allow four to five months to build the house.

This is a conservative, and it depends on the weather etcetera, but we would rather be more conservative than try and spin you a tale that we can build your house in three months.

If you have any further questions about the building your home or if you’d like to run your ideas by us we encourage you to contact us on (07) 5476 8690 or email us directly at sales@trubuilt.com.au.

Alternatively you can contact us with any questions you may have on the contact form at the bottom of this page.

We look forward to helping you plan and build your eco home.

What Are The Details Behind The Bedroom Restricted Window Regulations?

It’s mandatory to have the maximum opening of a window in a bedroom to be 125 millimetres on the balustrade.

This law has been passes to prevent beds getting placed against the windows, as there has been cases of kids falling out of the window when climbing onto beds which are places against windows.

While this is a great law to prevent such injuries, many times it creates problems for airflow or getting light into the room.

To get around these problems we provide the solution of installing louver windows into the room which not only let in light but also airflow.

Alternatively you are able to install security screens on the windows which will stop anyone from entering in and out of the windows.

Your kids will be safe and you will still have light coming into the room and all the airflow you need to keep the room nice and fresh.

If you have any further questions about the restricted window requirements or if you’d like to run your ideas by us we encourage you to contact us on (07) 5476 8690 or email us directly at sales@trubuilt.com.au.

90 mm Framing V’s 70 mm Framing

90 mill framing is better than 70 mm framing is better because it is wider, therefore it is structurally more sound in your house and it also gives you a larger gap between the services that run through the frames.

22 years ago when we first started we used to use 70mm framing, then a number of years after the house was finished all the sudden the house would have a water leak.

This was because the nail had penetrated the water pipe, then it rusted and all the water pours out.

Hence we encourage all our clients to always use 90mm framing versus 70mm framing.
