DOUBLE-GLAZING FLEXIBILITY Glass in Australia must meet Australian standards so we only use locally made high quality double glazed units. This allows the ultimate flexibility in glass selection and sizes to suit local conditions. Plustec can provide endless combinations of glass types to suit various requirements – bushfire, acoustics, low-emmissivity, laminated, toughened, obscure, tinted, or even coloured. We can range from 24mm overall to 30mm overall allowing us to maintain the optimim air/gas gap and keeping above the minimum of 12mm. Glazing beads are always inside allowing easy glass replacement and providing added security. LOW MAINTENANCE Windows and doors from Plustec will not rot, twist or corrode. They only require a simple clean and occasional oiling of hardware making them low maintenance. We can also supply a kit with the cleaning and maintenance oils for…

relax, just do it!

Gremmo Homes’ latest display home began with a simple concept. “Our objective was to create a contemporary design with a relaxed feel,” says Richard Gremmo. “We have more than 20 years of experience as a custom home builder, and we are well aware of the design concepts and inclusions that are both popular and functional.

Welcoming wide-formed stairs provide a subtle transition from the footpath to the entry of the home, which…

superlative style

Inspired by the luxury homes that dot the southern shores of Long Island in New York — better known as The Hamptons — the architect-designed Boston 36 from Clarendon Homes is an abode of superlative style.

First impressions really do count and from the moment you spy the facade, with its well-considered complementary mix of materials in a colour palette of soft white and grey, a feeling of relaxation washes over you. The sensation is enhanced when you step into the entry, where detailed timber ceilings provide visual warmth and a feeling of tranquillity,…
