Take an odd-shaped block of just 364 square metres at the top of a cul de sac and try to fit a spacious home of four bedrooms, two bathrooms and general living areas. Now, that's a challenge for established designers and builders let alone a young company just five years in the business.

Not only did the team at Little Developments answer the challenge they won two MBA Awards for their efforts. They are the year's Best New Builder and winner of the Best Project Home in the $200,000 to $300,000 bracket

Paul Little is a successful roof carpenter, contracting to many of Perth's leading home builders. He decided to register as a builder and established his own building company in 2000.

Paul links up with his brother Michael, a qualified building designer, and together they aim to construct a limited number of individually designed and built custom homes each year.

The first challenge facing a two storey home in Inglewood is to satisfy local council design requirements in an established heritage area With the plan and external appearance resolved, the interior spaces and finishes have to be seen to be believed.

The use of materials is brilliant. Full-height light-coloured polished marble tiles;, coffered ceilings; wide cornices and skirting boards; superb Tasmanian blackbutt, tongue-and-groove flooring set on battens, even the fitting of drawers to the kickboards to the kitchen cupboards are all part of the design resolution.
