Building a Dream into a Reality

We are huge fans of the television series, Dream Build on the ABC which showcases Aussies who have been lucky enough to bring their dream home to life.

The show features ambitious homes which push the boundaries of design and architecture to create something that is truly inspiring and cutting-edge.

We even spotted a few episodes featuring dream homes that incorporate Fielders products – making us very proud to see our own innovations making these inventive ideas a reality.

Episode two, which features an unusual home built around the ideal place to store a car upon a steep block of land in the Adelaide Hills, was created by talented architect Damian Campagnaro and utilised Fielders Standing Seam for the unique fa├žade, fixed expertly by a specialist European contractor. Since its completion, the house has become a recognisable icon in the area thanks to its distinct futuristic aesthetic making it appear to be a ‘floating apartment’ or something you would see in the Jetsons!


Fielders Aramax FreeSpan, which has a profile that enables roof sheeting to span long unsupported distances, also featured in the episode titled the ‘Beach Shack’. The episode centres on a home in Queensland built by a couple who enjoyed many fond memories camping over the years in the bushland location 100m from beach.

Built and designed by Simon Laws, the artistic home took on an industrial shape inspired by a nearby sugar cane mill and certainly has its own distinct character complimented by luxurious features. We have to say, the pod-like living room is definitely the highlight of this beautiful design and in particular the circular window which almost looks like an aircraft relic.


If you are passionate about building design and architecture be sure to check out the show.  We would also love to hear about any innovative designs that have been brought to life using our steel products, so feel free to share your real-life dreams with us here on the blog or on the Fielders Steel Facebook page.
