Another house plan, three different ways

The Fiddlehead in its original form is quite a departure from the Sunflower, which we recently profiled. Coming in at a modest 1,330 square feet, it includes 2 + 1 bedrooms and 3 baths over two floors.

The ground floor has a nice open plan, while the bedrooms have their own space on the upper floor. This appeals to anyone attached to two-storey living or concerned about the home’s footprint and its size. A two-storey home is typically less costly to build.

Getting in touch this summer

As we head into the second half of summer, we’re finding that enquiries continue to come thick and fast. We’re delighted to hear from so many of you, but during peak construction season it can be a bit of a challenge responding in a timely fashion.

We’re doing our best to respond to everyone as quickly as we can (usually within 24 – 48 hours), but if you’ve experienced a delay, don’t be shy about reaching out again.
