30+ Years Experience
Our principal, Renay Van Unen has over 30 years of building experience is your point of contact at every step.
Over the past 7 years I have issued 155 to 200 building permits for new dwellings for Australian Heritage Homes Pty Ltd. I have always found their workmanship and organisation skills to be of the very highest standards.
We would also like to take this opportunity to again thank you personally and everyone who was involved in the building of our home. The entire “building experience” through Australian Heritage Homes is one that we have enjoyed thoroughly.
Home. House. Casa. Abode. Digs. All synonyms for the place where you kick off your shoes after a long day, put your feet up and exhale. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing it by yourself or with a clan of twenty, it’s home. Home is a very symbolic word, regardless of your heritage or culture. Across the modern western hemisphere, the word “home” is perceived in hundreds of different ways, keeping in mind different factors of both choice and your economy.Read More
The world of homes—home renovations, home purchases, home design, selling, buying—is a complex one. Just look at that short list of the different pieces of the puzzle. There are plenty more where those came from. This industry’s complexity is just one reason of many that Australian Heritage Homes is so passionate about what we do.Read More
So you’re ready to purchase a home. Or you’re ready to upgrade to the next level, whether it’s a different neighborhood, a different size, or a different style. Regardless, it’s a daunting path ahead. You’re going to have to open up your wallet, your property, your schedule, your sanity and your trust to somebody that you probably don’t know too well.Read More
There’s no way around it, technology is slowly taking over the world. Now we’re not talking about robots and aliens from outer space, far from it. We’re talking about technologies that are massively improving day-to-day experiences from homeowners. The Disney Channel produced a movie in the nineties called Smart House, in which a robot maid slowly did take over the house and all of its pre-programmed technology. While we’re nowhere near that level, there are definitely up and coming technologies which are making life much easier.Read More
It used to be, ‘the bigger the better.’ That pertained to wallets, to actions, to spending and to lifestyles. In fact, this trend is probably the most cyclical of all time. You can bet your bottom dollar that at some point, this trend will return and our wallets will groan all over again. But for now, we can breathe a little bit easier and watch as a very interesting trend unfolds in the home renovation industry. That trend, is the tiny house trend.Read More
It doesn’t matter what the weather, or time of year, home renovations can be some of the most stressful times of your life. While there’s not necessarily a science to it, it makes sense when you look at some examples that go into the equation: You’re entrusting your home to someone who is most likely a complete stranger, you’re opening your wallet to invest in something which may or may not bring value to your home and you’re disrupting your daily routine to incorporate an element of surprise and unknown.Read More
We live in an age where technology moves at the speed of light. What is in and on trend one day may be completely archaic the next. Information travels at the speed of light (or faster, depending on who you ask), and bad news travels even faster. This means that education flows freely to the masses, and more and more consumers have self-serving business models at the tips of their fingers.Read More
We’re going to take a wild guess and say that the kitchen may be the hub of your home. It’s the focal point for socializing, where the kids head immediately following a day at school, where you host important family meetings and discussions. So why doesn’t the kitchen often receive the TLC that it needs and deserves?Read More
When we begin the planning process of designing your home, it’s one of the first things that we’ll discuss. After all, the outdoor areas of your home are the first impression to those passing by. Do you want the whole of it to be functional? Do you see any landscaping efforts as purely aesthetic? We have a multitude of solutions for both ends of the spectrum.Read More
