Having fallen in love with Guilderton, the Moores jumped at the opportunity to secure an elevated block with an existing house overlooking the river.

An old and small asbestos home, the stand out feature is the large wooden front deck and pergola which provided the perfect environment to capture the amazing views of the Moore river.

The house had to be demolished, and a new home built. Their future retirement home, it had to be custom designed to fit in with the retained front deck, accommodate the needs of their family and lifestyle, while maximising the scenic views of the Moore River.

The Moores were recommended to Ross Squire Homes by a family member as homes which were well built.

“They have a less environmental footprint, and we also wanted a builder who could work with us on developing the floorplan,” said Helen Moore. “The focus were the views, and the ability of the house to fit with the existing front deck.”


The home has been designed to maximise the views of the Moore River.

Being stationed away in the far north of WA, meant direct supervision of the build was minimal. Helen visited the site when the slab went down, and only saw the house again at practical completion.

“I had great confidence with Geoff (Ross Squire Homes site supervisor) – he could translate what I had in my head into fruition.”
