Owner's insight

“Our decision to build our home through Intermode was serendipity. The wash up- a beautiful home, built within budget, finished on time AND exactly the type of home that at one stage seemed way beyond our means.”

Di Foggo and Rodney Moore

“Our decision to build our home through Intermode was serendipity. We had purchased a difficult block of land in Kyneton that despite everything had wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. However we began to discover that the type of modern home we wanted was beyond our means. Being on the edge of retirement we were not prepared to risk a venture that, as with previous experience, had the potential to cost far more that original estimates.

An architect with a formidable reputation was kind enough to refer us to Intermode. And we literally walked off the street into their office. We were greeted with warmth and in the process found we could have the house of our dreams built at a fixed price and within a set time frame.

Initial reservations that the modular design might be a de-facto ‘kit home’ were soon dispelled. There was enough flexibility in the arrangement of modules and features that we were able to build a house that took maximum advantage of the site. Moreover, the design and finish reflected that of a bespoke architectural house.

One particular aspect of the process that won us over was that the ‘package’ included fittings and fixtures that were ‘high end’. No traipsing endlessly around different suppliers to make choices. The quality of fixtures and fittings was then matched by the standard of finishes.

The wash up- a beautiful home, built within budget, finished on time AND exactly the type of home that at one stage seemed way beyond our means. And to think we just walked off the street.”
