Building Styles and Methods

All of our raised, stumped homes are environmentally friendly as they only touch the ground with stumps and poles. The ground area under the house is left in its natural state. This nearly eliminates costly earth works, avoiding the added costs of paving, concrete slabs, retaining walls and possible subsoil drainage. If required though we can build all our homes on a concrete slab.

Our engineered floor method, utilising a long-reach style of floor trusses, creates many benefits for the customer. Reduced amount of stumping keeps construction costs down and speedier construction times. Also creating huge open spaces under the homes which may be then used for car parking, workshops, storage area, or barbeque and entertaining areas. Our engineered roof trusses also add to the superior strength of our homes as they are an engineered product well before they are placed in a roof space and construction starts.

Stumped and pole-framed homes are extremely strong and can withstand the test of time. These styles of homes are often constructed in cyclone and earthquake-prone areas. Total Home Frames homes are cyclone rated and very suitable for the variety of soil types found throughout Western Australia especially clay soil areas.

On flat building site’s you may request your home to be built on a concrete slab which is also available in all of our home designs.
