All clients’ purchase a Lighthouse earthquake resistant structure and rotating house based on the deposit and production payment schedule that goes along with the Purchase Contract through the Building Package 1. This package incorporates all the building plans, building permit drawings, structural components, windows, decking, roofing, doors and selected finishings based on a clients’ selection. The Building Package One is then shipped by container to a client’s site where a Lighthouse Technician (supplied as part of the purchase contract) works with a local contractor to assemble the steel structure house to the point where the house is ready for interior finishing. The foundation requirements are supplied by Lighthouse to the Client’s foundation contractor and are based typically on the site geotech requirements that the client’s specific site conditions dictate. Lighthouse will provide you with technical assistance to ensure that your home meets our construction standards.
BUILDING PACKAGE TWO (Assembled)
If you choose Building Package Two, the entire package will be shipped by container to the building site. The site assembly is directed by a Lighthouse Technician. This ensures that everything will be assembled correctly and according to local building code guidelines. A local contractor is hired and the assembly of the house (upon arrival by container) is a methodical process, as all the structural components fit together in a building block system. This makes for a very streamlined building process than actually having to build everything from scratch on-site. A complete lock-up structure is achieved at this stage ready for interior finishing. For extreme climates, higher insulation values are available. A Lighthouse home can be heated using any of the conventional methods, including wood burning stoves, forced air furnaces, or electric baseboard heaters. Advanced technologies such as radiant heating can also be readily incorporated. This is a steel structure house that can be designed to suit your needs and lifestyle.
BUILDING PACKAGE THREE (Interior Finishing)
At this stage, a client’s personal preference really comes to light through a local contractor/interior designer. Your home needs to tell a story. It should be a statement about you, and it should include elements of your personality. The unique design of a Lighthouse home is very liberating for an interior designer. There is a freedom to do what you want with the open plan layout. All interior work can easily be accomplished by local trades people or experienced do-it-yourselfers. Complete freedom of design is allowed because there are no interior structural walls to limit room layout choices. There is nothing to hold you back because you have the entire space to work with. The flexible design also allows freedom to change the interior over time as your needs change. The Lighthouse standard designs show some layout ideas, but the possibilities are limitless and at the Building Package One stage custom designs to suit each client can be incorporated into the building permit plans. We offer you an earthquake resistant house that you can customise to suit your needs. You won’t find a better deal than that!
