Who the Flip?

Flip Homes Limited is a partnership between award winning architecture practice First Light Studio and strategic engineering consultants AWA Environmental. We also work very closely with our partners Bradley Project Management to deliver our beautifully designed homes that are warm, safe and cost effective.

Our team know from experience that the building process can be very complex and time consuming. This is why we manage the project from start to finish. You help us understand your requirements and how you’d like your Flip to look and feel.

We’ll take care of the site investigation, design, councils, consents and the building of your brand new Flip Home.


 

Site Investigation

Site Investigation   We undertake a desk top overview of your site placing your preferred Flip on your site. We then look at your local council regulations as to what's allowed and send a detailed report back to you on what you can do.

Design

Design   We arrange a LIM report and topography assessment / site survey (you may have these already) to better understand your site.  We visit the site and consult with you about site specific features, how the services would connect, the look and feel you're after and how we can best orientate your new dwelling within the site.  We then provide an integrated set of drawings including 3D's showing the dwelling onsite accompanied by a project brief and estimated price based on what we know so far.
