Acreage Home Designs

Do you dream of having your own rural retreat?

Enough land to enjoy peace and tranquillity and a buffer between you and the ever encroaching world?

As a leading rural home builder, Civic Steel Homes can make your dream a reality by creating a spacious new home on your country estate designed to tick all of your personal space requirements with fewer design compromises than those in the inner city.

From a building point of view, large blocks usually have fewer challenges than dealing with tight, narrow suburban blocks.

This allows our custom acreage home architects more freedom through the design stage.

However, be aware that there may be quite a few additional costs associated with building on acreage blocks that residential blocks don’t have.

For example, you may need additional power, usually 3-phase for the length of the run.

You might also have to consider the costs of longer access driveways, additional sewerage treatment plant costs, plus water tanks and water harvesting costs.

Your acreage home may even need higher wind ratings for frames and windows.

On top of the costs, Australian country style homes may be compromised by the fact that project builders have few, if any standard designs for acreage.


An acreage home builder straight out of the box.

The approach for rural house designs or acreage home designs often requires out-of-the-box solutions for capturing the wide panoramic views and prevailing breezes normally associated with country home designs.

Civic Steel Homes understand that great acreage house designs require the building to have a considered relationship to the land and different requirements to built up areas.

We will factor in aspects such as water conservation, attention to correct orientation and details such as bushfire requirements and waste treatment.

We will also make the most of the fact that there are no boundary restrictions, relaxations from close neighbours or restrictive covenants, and far less privacy issues than normal blocks.

To build a home on acreage requires far less compromise on efficient design, so we will be able to have more zones of the house in the desired northern aspect.

Importantly, there will be plenty of room for storage, a factor often overlooked or severely compromised in suburban homes.
