Our Homes

How to heat and cool your dream home

We all have a list of must-have features for our dream home—and if you value comfort—heating and cooling would be one of them.

New designs revealed: Johanna 274 and Echo facade

Our Hamlan design team have been busy creating the latest home design to join our Aspect range—and now you can see it for yourself.

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.

Building a home that’s the perfect fit for you

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many of us to spend more time at home than ever before and had us asking the question—is this home working for me?

A first look at our new Kalimna 240

Hamlan’s Kalimna 240 is a home designed for coastal living. It’s one of the newest designs to be added to Hamlan’s Aspect Range of homes and is now available for viewing by appointment in Torquay for a limited time.
