We build custom steel framed homes
Freedom Homes Pty Ltd have been building steel frame homes since 1989. Our aim is to produce high quality master built homes at a marketable price.
Repeat business and word-of-mouth have been features in our success.
Favourable recommendations have led us to build well over 350 homes, assuring the continued growth of our company and earning us the reputation as one of the leading custom home builders in Newcastle, Port Stephens, Lake Macquarie and throughout the Hunter Valley.
Why steel is a far better choice over any other frame and truss system
- It’s the smarter choice for maximum stability and design flexibility because we only use 1.2 steel gauge steel making them one of the strongest structural homes available.
- Due to our thicker stronger frames that are welded at our Tomago factory, manufacturing our own frames also means we have total quality control at every stage in the process.
- Every steel roof truss system is engineered for each home.
- Steel framed construction means your house is impervious to insects such as borers and white ants.
- Steel is rigid: it does not twist, warp or shrink
Over the years we have many satisfied home owners we have completed work for, we have also assisted the following businesses and clubs:
- Newcastle City Council
- Newcastle Netball Association
- Teralba Sailing Club
- Lake Macquarie Council
- Clarencetown Soccer Club
- Southern Lakes Cricket Club
- Newcastle Cricket Association
- Advanced Pest Control
- Truckline Newcastle
- Wards Airfreight Service
- Rosehill Race Course

You will receive a fully detailed and written quotation and detailed concept plans of the proposed home.
In the quotation costs are clearly identified, including those relating to personal selections and tastes (for example, your choice of kitchen and Prime Cost items.)
Once you are happy with the quotation, a deposit is made to move onto the next step.
We then have your plans drawn by our draftsperson and when they are correct and you are absolutely happy, your plans and specifications are then ready to be submitted for council and building approval.
Now comes exciting part! Selecting the finishing materials of your home, for example. bricks, roof colour, window colour, gutter, fascia and downpipe colours.
Selection also includes internal items such as your kitchen benches, cupboards and appliances, tiles, paint colour, taps, right down to the door handles.
And remember…..our experienced in-house colour consultant is always available to assist you.
We use a very detailed, plain English specification which covers your project requirements for every aspect, ensuring quality and a complete level of understanding at every stage of the project.
It’s getting close now!! We’re about ready to start building your dream home.

The agreement consists of an updated final fixed tender amount, council stamped plans, specifications and council approval conditions.
If you are going through a financial institution to build your home, you must show them this agreement.
When we receive an Authority to Commence Construction letter from them, we begin building your home.
Progress payments are requested at milestones of the construction stage.
These are clearly stated in your individual plain english HIA contract.
