The Portal Frame House

Portal Frame House

About the Portal Frame House

The portal frame house with stud infill panels.  This style is perfect for the person who wants to build a shed but make it into a Class 1 house or an economical granny flat. This is the best of both worlds with portal style columns and C section rafters giving that raked cathedral ceiling for more height and an open feel.

Plus we utilise steel stud frame house panels to suit horizontal cladding externally and making it ready for Gyprock lining inside. All windows are fully framed up and will have timber reveals and the finish is as a conventional house not some cheap shed style. This range is not dependent on internal load bearing walls and can give open plan living.
