Kit Homes Package Contents

We custom design and build kit homes with our national team of builders. Unlike our competitors who simply supply raw materials, Kline Homes provide every component required to complete Kit Homes, including back up service. If you get stuck, call at any time to get assistance and advice.

Our unique systems and revolutionary blade pile pier system negates the need for concrete footings, this means every component supplied erects new kit homes with no need for external supplies. All of the materials will arrive in either a 20ft, or 40ft container/s to keep them protected from the elements and thieves. Many competitors will simply drop the materials off unprotected and open to the elements.

We are licensed builders and know every component required to complete a home. If our competitors are cheaper it’s only because you’re receiving less, so make sure you compare apples with apples.

All Kit Homes can be transported Australia wide, prices will vary state to state.

The Best Steel Frame Systems

 

Steel Frames are not all the same, we have seen many competitors use cheap low gauge steel just to keep the pricing low. Our kit homes utilise the highest gauge steel in its class and the latest computer CAD systems to get every cut exact. Depending on your location, we can provide a range of designs, structural requirements, finishing stages and options to suit your project.

Advantages

  • Steel has the highest strength to weight ratio of any building material.
  • Steel does not shrink, twist or sag, avoiding settling problems often found with timber.
  • A steel framed home will remain as strong as the day it was erected.
  • Our frames are made from high tensile aluminium zinc coated steel and will not rust.
  • Steel is impervious to termites, white ants, and borers saving expensive treatment costs.
  • A steel house frame will not rot or burn.
  • Steel house frames are backed with a 50 year warranty and are completely recyclable.
  • Superior spanning for design freedom and flexibility.
  • The structural integrity of steel allows for alterations and additions in the future.
  • Steel frames are free from chemicals and pesticides.

Why use Kline Homes?

We think outside the box and treat all kit homes and homes as if it were our own. We build these homes for our clients in both Northern NSW & SE Queensland. The systems we have developed over the years have made the process so simple. This was why we decided to put our components into a kit package. By increasing our builder’s network throughout Australia, we can offer installation to any stage of the construction process in most areas.

Our research has shown that our competitors don’t supply all the components required, and as a result, many builders/ owner builders get frustrated. If you’re in a remote area this is going to bring your construction to a halt.

Concrete a problem? No worries, our Blade Pile System requires no concrete, minimal labour, and no steel. It often works out cheaper and faster, forget expensive footings and slabs. As licensed builders, we offer more than most by providing practical knowledge and sound advice. We provide ongoing support well after you receive your Kit Home.

Becoming an Owner Builder

Becoming an owner builder is a great way to save thousands of dollars and will provide you with the satisfaction of actually building your new home. In most cases it is simply a matter of doing a short course and then paying a fee for the owner builder’s licence. This does vary from state to state, below is summary of the different procedures for the different states of Australia.

Queensland

This is one of the easiest states to acquire an owner builder’s permit. This permit is required when performing building work on your own property where this work is performed by a qualified builder would amount to more than $11,000. You are only allowed to apply for a permit once every 6 years. You are required to complete an owner builder’s course. Visit the QBCC website which is www.qbcc.qld.gov.au for a list of course providers.

Western Australia

To acquire an owner builders permit for most areas of Western Australia you are required to complete a Statutory Declaration and pay a fee to the BRB (Builders Registration Board). An owner builders’ permit is required where the value of the building works is over $12,000. The owner builder is permitted to build once every 6 years and is able to sell their owner built home after 3 years, but is required to take out home indemnity insurance to cover future owners.

New South Wales

An owner builders permit is required where the total value of the work is in excess of $12,000. You must complete an owner builders course or have approved equivalent experience and pay an owner builder permit application fee. For a list of approved courses and fees visit www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au. Home warranty insurance is required if the home owner decides to sell their owner built home during the 6 years after completion

Victoria

An owner builders permit is required for building works carried out on your land that exceeds $12,000. The applicant must sign a statutory declaration and pay a fee of approximately $75.00. Owner builders may only obtain building permits for a single dwelling and associated work on a single property in any three year period. If the owner built home is sold within 6 years of completion, Builders Warranty Insurance is required. For more information visit the Building Commission website www.buildingcommision.com.au.
