Hamptons Farm Project is complete

Summary: We have had an incredible 12 months building our Hamptons Farm Project and with the Open Homes Australia sneak peek last month, we can now finally reveal to you what we have accomplished and who we used and why. We started this build in February 2019 with great hopes of finishing in the 11 months – and we did it!....

WattElectricalNews manually sifts through the world wide web on your behalf to curate and bring news stories relevant to those within the electrical industry in Australia. If we are able to save you the couple of hours each day to sift through volumes of data to get to stories like these regularly, then we think we've done our job. After all time is money, right?

When you are renovating or building you really do need to have your ducks in a row, and here’s where to start.


Trades


The first thing we found is things move very fast once approvals are accepted. The idea of doing things as they come can take you off guard. Great trades make a huge difference in building, so make sure who you find people who understand what you want, the process they will undertake and the schedule they are required to work to. This way you have a great understanding and easy communication.


Make sure you have things like your plumbing and electrical selections chosen. This way, by the time your pad is down, you are able to direct your plumber or electrician on where everything goes.


Kitchen and bathroom fixtures



To create the Hamptons style, we used Brodware for all our taps, showers and bath fixtures. They all flowed together and kept the consistency throughout the project. I found Harvey Norman Commercial had one on the best displays and knowledge on these beauties. They also come in a huge range of colourways, so you can bring your character out with these. You can find your sinks, basins and bath selection all displayed to help you explain where to place each of these items.


Electrical


When it comes to electrical, it is a great idea to firstly know your plan for lights from down lights and pendants, to any heating, air-conditioning, plugs and security. Make sure you are aware of what is available and know if you are going to have a smart home.


We used Quantify Technology in our home for so many reasons. We wanted a smart home for ease of living; we also wanted beautiful wall plugs which fitted into our Hamptons design.


We loved the ability of home automation to set scenes by using Amazon Alexa for music, lighting and simplicity of use. We had a fabulous local electrician, a second-generation family business called Harris Electrical who was hands on, had incredible work ethic and was just amazing to work with on this home. It was a huge home, with so many pendants and electrical challenges but Harris Electrical did this all with ease.


Just having these few things in place will save you time, money, energy and sanity. It is not easy to build a home of this size, in this location and under these restraints. The knowledge we gained, not only as the builder but as the client, is definitely worth sharing. We look forward to educating you over the next few months.
