From freestanding homes to flexible duplexes, we have delivered our DualOcc by Metricon developments to our customers with thoughtful detail and care. Because Dual occupancy doesn’t always mean two homes on a block, it may mean three, four or more. Our freestanding home designs are functional and offer outstanding value for money. Our Development Consultants will help determine if our freestanding homes are suitable for your block.
