Gerrand Street, Latrobe

We delivered this award-winning home for a construction cost of less than $200,000 – yet, the home has features you’d normally see on a home with a much higher construction cost. It’s a terrific showcase of our building skills in both construction and project management, and the winner of the 2020 Master Builders Award for Dwelling Construction – Under $200,000.


About the project

For this project, we were presented with a small unit-sized block of 381 m2 with its own title. Not a lot of room to move! But we were up for the challenge - and we are proud to have created such a cost-effective product with a high-quality finish.

A specific design brief from our clients and local council requirements meant that careful planning had to be considered. Working with the team at Elco Designs, we created a home with a sun-filled open-plan living space and a practical layout feeling spacious and homely.

Inside & out

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home featured quality modern yet affordable fittings throughout. The wet areas feature black shower screens and tapware chosen by the client, further enhancing the modern look and feel.

Externally, this skillion design features Weathertex natural finished cladding, complementing Island Block & Paving's sustainable pewter coloured bricks. Throughout the exterior, we combined two tones of bricks to make a bold impression.
