I wanted something different, something unusual and something that fitted on a rural block and with existing structures on the block, while being compliant with the applicable stringent bushfire rating. From my very first discussion with Troy I knew he was the man for the job. His attention to detail, his ability to work with me and listen to what I wanted, while at the same time making great suggestions to improve the project, were second to none. The whole process was smooth and stress free for me and I enjoyed watching the work progress from day to day. I am left with my dream home and a wonderful experience to look back on. My Wandi Shed House is the best!

"From the very first outset of purchasing our block in the Perth Hills my wife and myself realised that with the steepness of our block and the Flame Zone 100 bushfire attack level ( BAL ) rating on our site this was going to be a difficult, problematic and possibly uneconomical situation in regards to building a new house. We approached “Project Home “ builders but found negative responses to structural, economical, BAL and custom design issues with our build. It just seemed all too hard for them.
Through a friend’s previous experience they recommended us to contact Troy Butcher from Ironstone Homes and we found instantly that Troy had a positive, experienced, very honest no fuss approach to what our issues were, what we may need to do to overcome them and organised very quickly an understandable overview and plan of what lay ahead if we decided to build with Ironstone Homes.
We quickly realised that Troy’s passion was in building custom homes that stand out from the rest through a superb quality build and unique design and style. Troy applied a lot of time and effort into achieving a lowering of our BAL from the highest level ( FZ 100 ) to a BAL 40 which allowed us to build a new home within our budget range.
All through this process we have received an exemplary service ( actually above and beyond our expectations ) from Troy in regards to all aspects of building our house. Not all things go smoothly on a custom build on a steep block in the hills but all issues and obstacles were tackled head on in a professional can do attitude until the desired outcome was achieved.
We believe Troy is a standout in the Building Industry and is capable of turning your ideas and dreams into a reality by really listening and offering suggestions to take you through to the end product. We have no hesitation in recommending Troy Butcher and Ironstone Homes to anyone contemplating building on any sort of block, but are not sure where to start or how to go about the complete process. You will not be disappointed".

“ We are only at the beginning of our building journey with Troy from Ironstone homes, however we already know we are in for an amazing experience. Our project has been more complex than a standard build with our block being sloped, in a bushfire area and currently rated a BALFZ . Troy along with the designer, Adam from Darklight Design, have worked professionally and quickly to produce phenomenal plans within the scope of what was budgeted. Hours have been spent on the phone without a second thought, and he really does go the extra mile to make the experience as painless as possible. We are encouraged to make educated decisions and are given every little bit of information in relation to the building process so nothing is left to chance or assumption. We cannot wait to begin our build with Ironstone Homes and we know what we will be receiving at the end will be quality.”
