Design and construction Here at Shaw Living, we’ve designed and built a lot of homes. And every one has been different. Because no two blocks, no two people or no two families are exactly alike.
Our greatest satisfaction comes from taking your ideas and aspirations and turning them into a home that’s beautiful, practical, sustainable and, best of all, the home you wanted.
We start with your block. If you’ve already bought the land, we’ll produce a design that maximises solar access and views and gives you the best possible utility in both the house and outdoor areas. If you don’t already have a block, we’ll help you choose one that will suit the house you’re thinking of.
We also realise that you have a budget. Having us involved in the design process is a great way to make sure your design is achievable within that budget. You’ll be pleased with the cost-effective and innovative ideas we’ll show you.
HIA Greensmart® sustainable building design
To protect our environment and contain energy, a sustainable home makes good sense. That’s why Shaw Living has HIA Greensmart® accreditation. This industry-leading initiative recognises environmentally responsible housing and gaining accreditation confirms our committment to being an eco-builder of choice. All of our designs incorporate sustainable energy-efficient features, like optimum solar orientation, cross ventilation, thermal mass, efficient water use and healthy building design.
We make it personal
Here at Shaw Living you’ll find people who are friendly, helpful, and willing to guide you step-by-step through the process of designing and building your new home.
