Owner's insight

“We are very happy with the finished product. The resultant design is simple and elegant in layout and very responsive to the site. Would we refer Intermode to others? Definitely – we are extremely pleased with the outcome.”

“We had a lengthy experience with an architect and, due to changes in the practice and personnel arrangements, the documented plan progressively moved away considerably from our original brief and budget. We took the difficult decision that there was no point building a house that we would not be happy with.

Having been aware of modular design and construction approaches, we researched various housing products including Intermode. After seeing media coverage of the Intermode house at Kilmore, visiting the Intermode house at Anglesea and having discussions with Intermode (Nick and Jeremy), we felt very comfortable with the flexibility of the Intermode design approach and standard and style of finishes.

The design process was quite painless with Jeremy and Nick very quickly coming to grips with our site near Bright and the challenges of trying to capture virtually 360 degree views. The resultant design is simple and elegant in layout and very responsive to the site.

Intermode handled the process of securing a builder efficiently and thoroughly. As a result, we had confidence selecting a local builder who ‘passed’ the standards of construction finish set by Intermode.

We are very happy with the finished product and, as it is a ‘second house’ at present, we are reluctant to leave it to return to our other residence. Being located in a cold climate, the heating arrangements are working well especially the passive heat gains afforded by the design for continuity of direct autumn, winter and spring sunlight to the polished concrete slab, and the extensive double glazing and insulation.

Would we refer Intermode to others? Definitely – we are extremely pleased with the outcome.”
