What is the difference between Kitome and other home builders?

The major difference is the big saving you can make with Kitome. By doing the building work your self - or even part of it - or engaging trades directly, you could save thousands of dollars!

Most customers are amazed at the full extent of what you get in our kits. We encourage you to contact your local design consultant to discuss exactly how we can save you thousands without compromising on quality.

Can you supply your kits anywhere?

We’re an Australian-based company using Australian-based suppliers and materials. While we’ve serviced customers in many of our neighbouring countries like New Zealand and Indonesia with materials delivered to an Australian-based dock, many other countries outside our Asia-Pacific region are subject to differing compliance laws and construction methods, so our product may not be suitable for your location, especially if you’re unable to provide an address to an Australian-based dock.

Do you supply drawings suitable for Certification / Council Approval?

Yes, we supply engineered designed working drawings related to the design and construction of the house, for submission to your local Council or Building Certifier. Additional site related drawings and engineering may be required by your Council or Building Certifier, which Kitome will assist with.
