What is a Kit Home?
A kit-home or kit-house can be a small and compact one bedroom home or as large as a 5 bedroom home where all the components necessary to build are done off site and delivered ready for assemble by a builder or an owner builder. All the materials have been cut to size and everything needed for the construction is packaged to suit the “KIT” design you have chosen.
Why Buy a Kit Home?
Buying a kit-home from the Nova Group is cost effective and economical
whether its a home to live in or for an investment dwelling.
As an owner builder, the saving can be as much as 40% compared to
buying a house off the plan involving a construction building company.
We take pride in the fact that we work with you to achieve what you are looking for and then price the home to meet your budget because we have buying power, a great relationship with our suppliers and keep our overheads low. Read More...
Advantages of a Kit Home
A great advantage in purchasing a kit home is that it can be ordered in stages.
For the owner builder this option is great as we work within the builders time frame and budget (within reason).
Building to a Lock up allows you to become involved in the building process. Its a economical win win situation.
Kit homes work very well within various budgets.
Nova kit homes are designed by a leading architect and have been engineered to the highest standard to provide you with the best value for money. They are manufactured to Australian Standards to meet all climate conditions from the north of Cooktown to the south of Victoria, as well as from Perth to Sydney.
There are great advantages to becoming an owner builder, not
least being affordability (against engaging a builder) and flexibility
(build in your time when the money is available).
Provide a site plan
Prepare for your OB Permit
Engage a Certifier
Pay your deposit
An owner builder permit provides you a license to build 1 dwelling only. As such, it is your responsibility to hire contractors such as a plumber and electricians to sign off on all work carried out. Before engaging a contractor, do your homework and make sure they are fully qualified to do the job. As tempting as it might seem, it is not a good idea to use a mate. As the builder you are ultimately responsible. Current Affair constantly highlights the need for careful due diligence when engaging trades people.
Perfect Small Retreat
Why opt for a retirement village purchase that erodes
the family inheritance and keeps the family apart when building
a granny flat is a cheaper option?
From the Designers Desk:
Simplicity and minimalism in architecture really
works. Some architects go over-board to make a name for themselves
with designs which are inappropriate and will not stand the test

Pool Fencing for Australians – check your Council legislation
Almost half of all drowning deaths in the 0-5 year age group occur in backyard swimming pools, so pool fencing has an important role to play in preventing these tragic deaths.
There are slightly different fencing requirements for pools depending on when and where the pool was installed, and it is good advice to make enquiries with the local Council to ensure your fence complies with legislation.
Swim spas for all climates
Do you love the outdoors and especially swimming, but don’t have any room in your yard to a swimming pool; then perhaps a swim spa is right for you? Read Full Post
Hanging a shelf made easy
Adding shelving to as room is like making good
use of prime real estate. When we consider that a room normally
has 4 walls it makes good sense to use this some of this valuable
space for creating shelves for stuff that might otherwise end up
limiting the space we have on the floor or bench area.

Applying splash back tiles
Splashback tiles truly finish off a tiling section. Especially where the major theme of the bathroom or laundry area is to use white tiles, bringing in another colour using feature tiles uplifts the area. Read Full Post
