Steel framed homes are inherently more suitable and economical for building on clay soil as they require less intensive siteworks than traditional brick and mortar homes. This, together with its flexibility with design, and structural robustness, are just some of the reasons why a steel framed home was the preferred choice for these home owners.
Don: We had a lot of things to take into consideration because of the seismic movement in Toodyay. That was a very prime factor. There seemed to be no problem in the last 20 years with a steel frame home.
Aimee: We wanted steel frame primarily because it was going to save us money on siteworks. Steel frame is lighter so the siteworks don’t have to be as over the top.
Alison: Ours was a challenging site because of the elevation and that was all built into the design and it went smooth as.
