How we created a dream lifestyle property with Hamlan

Take a drive out to the Surf Coast locality of Paraparap and you’ll find traditional farmhouses typical of any farming area across Victoria. But at George and Liz’s Paraparap farm you’ll find a home that is anything but traditional.

What’s the best material for your home’s façade?

Have you thought about what your dream home facade would look like? Our guess is yes! And for valid reasons—street appeal is important! You want your home to add value to the location it’s in, whether it’s a new estate on the Surf Coast, an established tree-lined street in Newtown or an acreage in Barrabool.

How we build energy efficient homes

What is an energy efficient home? And why is that important? For many of us, talking about energy efficiency in your dream home isn’t one of the most thrilling parts of the building process, particularly when you could be choosing wall tiles for your bathroom or the cabinetry in your kitchen. But it should be! This important element of your design process is not just about energy consumption numbers and installing solar panels — by being clever in the design of your home, you’ll not only consume less energy and lower your bills, you’ll have a more comfortable home all year round. A more comfortable home equals healthier and happier occupants — and that’s exactly what you want!

Our First Lifestyle Range home completed

Our first ever Lifestyle Range home has been built, securing a bright future for a single dad and his young son. Hamlan’s Lifestyle Range is a Geelong first and offers people an affordable range of universal house designs suitable for people with disabilities and the ageing population.

Double-glazed windows and doors now standard

When you live in our part of the world it’s not unusual to experience four seasons in one day! So when it comes to building your new home, you’ll want a home that is consistently comfortable and safe no matter what the conditions are outside.
