Tracie explains that the Metricon team was very accommodating of their energy efficient inclusions. "Metricon was extremely flexible with what we actually wanted including double-glazing, big windows, lots of insulation, the right eves and more.”
Tracie and Peter were delighted with the speed of the build. Keen to get into their new home, they only had to wait about 4 and a half months after the slab was poured. “No-one can believe how quick it was,” Tracie says, “you have no worries about good tradesmen working in regional Victoria.”
One of the key reasons Metricon is so popular in regional locations is that is because it relies on local trades. There’s no bringing in teams of people from the city – we use locals who know the area and location better than anyone. Where some builders are lessening their involvement with local trades, we continue to work closely with them, as that’s how we achieve such great results and beautiful homes.
Summarising their experience, Tracie said “Metricon enabled us to achieve the country glam lifestyle. The home suits our requirements of what we wanted as we get older, and what works in this community.”
“I’d encourage everyone to spend time in regional locations – don’t fly to Bali– go to caravan parks, hire a motel and get a feel for places you could see yourself living. There are some really gorgeous places out there where a strong sense of community is so important,” Tracie concludes.
