Bushfire loss... an opportunity for a new start
They chose the Elizabeth model to replace the ranch style home they had lost. "We liked Paal's designs in preference to the project homes we looked at," Vickii explained.
The couple favoured a steel framed kit home not so much for its fireproof qualities as for protection from white ants, very prevalent in the area. "We didn't want to have to spread poison around in the ground," she said.
"We worked through the manual and also used Paal's advisory service, which made the job a lot easier. Paal were excellent - really efficient and easy to get along with."
Danny and Vickii's new home was finished off for them by Channel Nine's Renovation Rescue team, representing the TV channel's lifestyle programs.
