Located in Kapunda, 80kms north of our Edinburgh construction facility, Rod had always dreamt of owning his very own retreat on the soil that he calls home. Rod was able to find Akora just after a quick web search, and from there his building journey began!
“We went to the sales office, reviewed the costs, and noticed that insulation was included and that its energy rating was high, which helped make our decision to buy with Akora that much easier. It made such a difference.”
From BlueScope TRUECORE® steel frame truss systems, to COLORBOND® roofing, Kingspan insulation and Weathertex cladding. Akora home designs are constructed using Australian premium home building materials that set the core foundation of your home, ensuring that it lasts for years to come. These, alongside the interior design selections and standard inclusions already built in, help you build a home that you will spend a lifetime in, and add personality and flair that bring out the best of everyday Australian lifestyle – a place you can truly call ‘home’.
“You know, transportable homes are way ahead of a traditional house, in terms of construction. You could take someone through blind folded and they honestly wouldn’t know the difference, because that’s how good they are.”
When starting the pre-construction design phase with Akora, Rod opted for a similar structure of one of our traditional home designs; however, he and his wife had the opportunity to modify the layout to truly make it theirs.
“The best way for me to describe the layout of our home is that it is shaped like an L. And in this L space you’ve got the kitchen, dining and living area, which is quite nice for when people come into our home. It gives off this illusion that it is a larger house than what it is.”
With considering the floor plans available, it was important for Rod and his wife to have enough space to entertain their family over special occasions and holidays, whilst also making their everyday lifestyle a breeze.
“We had 25 people here at Christmas, and they fit in quite easy. And with our decking out the back, even though it is only a small block, it lends to creating a much more expansive space that caters to all occasions.”
With a wide range of home designs available that focus on the great Australian way of life and optimise space and flow throughout the home, Akora Homes also offer the flexibility to personalise any of our plans for your dream home to better align with your lifestyle.
Rod is the perfect example of a client whose dream home has really withstood the ultimate test of time.
