Studio 8 - The Custom Design Specialists

19th April 2017

Building a brand new house means you have the opportunity to build the home of your dreams to fit your personal lifestyle, rather than moving into a home that fits someone else’s. Building a custom home is the best option! Studio 8 Builders & Designers specialise in creating custom designed homes at very competitive prices.

Though the company was established 15 years ago, Studio 8 calls on over 40 years of experience in the WA home building industry, in both design and construction. This family-run company employs and supports local contractors and suppliers for the construction of its homes. This has allowed Studio 8 to build strong community relationships across the building industry and provide the best quality homes to its clients.

Studio 8 owner, Ken Sopp, believes one of the most important differences his company provides is the custom home promise to its clients. Rather than manipulating an existing home design, the designers start each new home design from scratch to ensure clients are getting exactly what they want.

“We’ll work with your land, location and living requirements to custom design and construct a home that’s perfectly suited to your needs.” - Ken Sopp, Studio 8 owner.

“Liaising directly with the designer will save time and money for our clients and give the designer direction and a feel for the clients requirements," he said. 

We asked the team at Studio 8 what their best new home building tips are for new home buyers:

  1. Realise the full potential of your site, a good designer will custom create a home that makes the best use of the space your land affords.
  2. Prepare a rough idea of your preferred layout, the person that knows you best, is you. Don’t be afraid to tell the designer what you want to build.
  3. Finalise the layout before getting bogged down on the details. Make sure you are completely satisfied with the layout of the home before taking any further planning steps with your builder and designer.

Individual design also allows for maximum use of passive solar principles. This is becoming increasingly important as sustainable building solutions become more popular and widely adopted throughout the industry.

Individual design doesn’t need to cost more. Contact Studio 8 for more information on custom designed homes by visiting their website
