About Eco Sustainable Homes
Eco Sustainable Homes are award winning Master Builders based in Central Victoria, we are passionate about sustainable house design and work with clients from concept to completion, to design and build their dream home. Our Eco Friendly homes are built to custom floor plans tailored to each client’s individual vision while maintaining sustainable design principles. They are timeless in beauty, environmentally sustainable and a pleasure to live in.
At Eco Sustainable Homes we incorporate many sustainable building materials into our designs, one such medium is Rammed Earth. We have been constructing Rammed Earth Walls for over 23 years with our sister company Rammed Earth Enterprises. Our knowledge and experience enable us to incorporate Rammed Earth walls to the maximum benefit where they will achieve unique aesthetics as well as utilise their solar passive functionality, fire resistant qualities up to flame zone BAL requirements, sound proofing and acoustics. In addition to its thermal properties, rammed earth is an excellent medium for feature walls, as they add unique natural textures and tones that suit all styles from traditional to contemporary.
We work with our clients to design their home from the early discussions and design brief to the site inspection and ongoing communication, to ensure each home not only works superbly with the environment in which it is built, but also that it is beautiful, affordable and functional.
Our focus is on client satisfaction, building quality homes and utilising environmental best practice.
