SUNFOX: NEW KIDS ON THE CORNER BLOCK
Written on the 30 July 2016 by Gold Coast Business News
SET back from the street, this Sunfox project offers plenty of backyard and enough privacy to bring the Australian dream to life.
This was all achieved at a small corner block in Ormeau, where the single-storey family home was built as an investment property.
By day, Sunfox director Corey Hobbins is employed as a supervisor in commercial industries. Sunfox has become a little more than a side project though, as Corey collaborated with the designer throughout the entire Ormeau build.
"We tried to save money where we could to invest into other parts of the house creating more overall value for the client," Corey says.
"It's the personal one-on-one contact with the clients that's different compared to dealing with sales and contracts teams of the bigger companies."
The individual home had a budget of under $250,000 and comes complete with stone bench tops and fully ducted air-conditioning.
In addition to the small block size, Corey says it was a challenge to source quality labourers considering the large number of constructions happening on the Gold Coast.
For its work on the Ormeau corner house, Sunfox received the Individual Home up to $250,000 award at the Master Builders Gold Coast Housing & Construction Awards.
