QLD Gov doubles First Home Buyers Grant to 30K!


Thanks to the QLD Government doubling the First Home Buyers Grant to $30,000, qualifying individuals may be able to leverage the money to cover a decent chunk of the cost of a steel kit home.

Wide Span Homes offers Steel Kit Homes starting from $24,300 to $107,300 (under N3 wind conditions) depending on your chosen designThe total cost of our homes fully erected by a builder generally ranges from $100k to $250k ( for our most popular sized Kits), which is significantly cheaper than the cost of most homes in this current market.

Why kit homes?

Beyond the incredible chance to make a big dent in the cost of a kit home with this funding, there are plenty of other compelling reasons for first home buyers to explore the benefits of purchasing a Kit Home.

Creative freedom for your internal fit out

Unlike the constraints often imposed by project builders, Kit Homes offer a complete blank canvas for the internal fixtures and finishes. While the home’s layout is predetermined based on the style of kit home you choose, you have the flexibility to collaborate with contractors of your choice for the internal fit out, empowering you to bring your dream home to life exactly as you envision it.

See below how one of our Victorian customers beautifully finished their Homestead Kit Home from Wide Span Homes. For more details on this project click here. 

Granny flat options available

The QLD First Home Buyers Grant can be used towards a new home or even a granny flat built on relative’s land. If you want to save on costs by not having to necessarily buy land, there’s always an option to build your own home on your family’s block. The Cabin by Wide Span Homes is the ideal design for a granny flat.

Council approval guarantee

When you commit to purchasing a Wide Span Homes kit, we guarantee that your steel building design will meet, if not exceed, council requirements and approval OR your deposit will be refunded in full. Read more about this here.

Structural integrity

Wide Span Homes are constructed from TRUECORE® Steel, made specifically by BlueScope Steel for the house framing market. The structural components of our homes are engineered to meet Australia’s strict Class 1 Building Codes and Standards. Steel is also termite resistant so you can be rest assured the structural integrity of your home will not be compromised by these pests.

The doubled QLD First Home Buyers Grant offers an incredible opportunity for those who are qualified. Steel kit homes are ideal for first-time buyers as they are low cost, durable and sustainable.
