Generous homes on generous blocks are a WA Country Builders specialty, so it's no surprise that you'll find many examples of their work in the region. But, its not just size that matters and WA Country Builders' extra attention to environmental considerations makes their homes especially suited to a region that endures hot summers, cold winters and those infamous prevailing Geraldton winds.

WA Country Builders design principles take into account Greensmart initiatives that make their homes environmentally sustainable and thermally efficient - considerations that are important in a region with such extreme weather conditions.

The large windows and northern orientation of a WA Country Builders home take advantage of the sun in winter and are designed to make the most of the shade and the cool breezes in summer. Insulation, gas boosted solar hot water, roof venting and wide verandahs are all trademark features that help to make a WA Country Builders home not just an extremely comfortable home to live in but also an environmentally sustainable one.

A WA Country Builders home is designed to suit its site without compromising the natural lay of the land. Their philosophy has always been that a home and its environment should be as one and this philosophy makes itself apparent in everything from the building materials they use to the way they site the home on the block.

While WA Country Builders certainly can and do build in traditional double brick, their choice of materials also reflects their commitment to the environment and to designing homes with individual flair.

You'll find poles and framed houses that nestle into the environment without causing degradation, and their use of a combination of materials like brick veneer, corrugated metal, weatherboards and coloured render allow for a result that won't spoil the location you've so carefully chosen for your new home.
