Our homes are designed for you

We understand that building a new house is a big step to take and may seem a bit daunting to the uninitiated. But in the studio, designing and building good-feeling, good-quality homes is the name and the aim of our game! So we've developed the First Light Home to make the whole process easier and much less scary. There is always room to customise the plans for your unique site and situation, but in terms of space maximisation, energy efficiency and buildability, the hard yards have been done for you.

  Net zero energy We start with a well insulated air-tight building shell, use natural strategies for heating and cooling, then supplement with innovative, easy to use technologies and a small solar PV system. The resulting efficiency means NO more gas or electric bills for you!

  Space efficient Bigger is not necessarily better, its just bigger. Right-sized design makes smaller spaces feel large. Eliminating wasted areas and maximising function reduces the square metre size without sacrificing comfort. This reduces up-front costs, energy demands and system sizes.

  Streamlined construction We will customise our build process to best suit your site. Whether this is built traditionally, pre-built in panels off site or fully finished in the factory we will utilise the most efficient build process near you to reduce time on site, cut down construction waste, and eliminate errors and delays.
