DO YOU BUILD ON A SLOPING BLOCK?

DO YOU BUILD ON BAL RATED BLOCKS?
YES! Since the 2019-2020 bushfires, we made an avenue to focus on re-building homes and lives for the affected communities of East Gippsland.
As BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) rated blocks of land continue to be evaluated across other locations in the area - that haven't as such been effected by fires, we are gathering stronger understanding at what is contributing to the rating and how we can build a home accordingly.
We strive to continue being a builder that upskills our knowledge of the BMO, BAL ratings and fire resistant building materials.
We work collaboratively with our suppliers - who not only provide us with quality material, but extensive knowledge on the production and adaptation of these resources.
Don't be deterred at the news of having a high BAL rating on your property, the team at Blay will assure you that the quality and care put into the construction of your build will protect you in the scenario of an ember attack occuring.
WHAT IS YOUR PRICE PER SQ METRE?
As we are a custom builder - no two of our projects are ever the same, no site conditions are the same and clients will never be the same.
Therefore the reality is, no set rate for a custom home can possibly be the same.
A proper quote requires the builder to fully understand the plans, scope of work, site condition and time constraint.
Like building lego pieces, each component is priced accordingly before assembled to produce a final figure.
I NEED HELP CHOOSING A BLOCK OF LAND
We know that buying a block of land can be daunting. You may also not be told about the hidden factors that can with the property that may potentially arise during a build and cause unexpected expenses.
So, we offer a 'Pre Purchase Land Inspection' service, to give you more guidance around whether or not the blocks building capability is suited for what you desire to design.
This service includes identifying whats underground and located around the property, as well as fall indication and other site features that need to be accounted for when building on the land.
CAN I SEE YOUR PRE DESIGNED FLOORPLANS?
As passionate modern day builders, we don't want to have a certain type of home or price range to be our box that we can't step out of.
We are bespoke custom builders, with a drive to design different homes every single time we build.
Our goal is develop and refine a floor plan that suits the desires, needs and lifestyle for our clients. Therefore every home is its unique and independent design.
