New Homes - House and Land - Contract Build

WELCOME... How can we help you?

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful” Artist – William Morris

RAM Living is driven by great design – our goal is to create beautiful, functional homes that you love living in.

Our passion for the Modernist style of architecture has driven our statement range of homes and the latest Display Home in Moncrieff – ModHaus.

Drawing inspiration from the Stahl House, Frank Lloyd Wright and Kaufmann, this range of homes combines classic architecture with the modern features expected in a contemporary home.

A strong driver in modernist design is combining form and function. Our interpretation of that is that everything that we put into the home not only needs to look good, it also needs to be functional and useful. By applying this thinking to our design and construction processes we strive to limit waste and unnecessary elements. By focusing on fundamental elements like light and space we strive to create beautiful, functional and affordable homes. What’s more, these elements never go out of style and will always be the most valuable asset in your home.

You will find our boutique range of floorplans are built around these fundamental elements and when you visit our display home you will understand why these elements are so important.

Our series of 3 and 4 bedroom floor plans have been paired with a range of facades that provide for varying style preferences – including modernist, traditional and contemporary.

Live the way you want to live...

Planning to ensure you get the things you want based on how you live

The planning stage is the most important part of the process and getting it right will ensure you get the home you have always dreamed of.

Every block has unique constraints relating to orientation, frontage, easements, slope, bushfire mitigation and the impact of the relevant Lease and Development Conditions and planning constraints. If you do not fully understands these constraints before you start planning and making decision it can cost you lots of money…we can assist you with obtaining the information, so whether you want to build on your block, build on one of our blocks, or you’re looking for a house and land package, we can help you make the right decisions. Contact us now.

The RAM Difference

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”
Artist – William Morris

RAM Living is driven by great design – our goal is to create beautiful, functional homes that you look forward to coming home to.

Our passion for the Modernist style of architecture has driven our statement range of homes and the latest Display Home in Moncrieff – ModHaus.

Drawing inspiration from the Stahl House, Frank Lloyd Wright and Kaufmann, this range of homes combines classic architecture with the modern features expected in a contemporary home.

Why Modernism?

When discussing Modernist Architecture, Architect George Suyama said, “the spirit of these sort of homes is likely to remain with contemporary house builders because it favours, “the most important parts of dwelling in a structure: light and space.” 

A strong driver in modernist design is combining form and function. Our interpretation of that is that everything that we put into the home not only needs to look good, it also needs to be functional and useful. By applying this thinking to our design and construction processes we strive to limit waste and unnecessary elements. Our focus is on fundamental elements like light and space enable us to create beautiful, functional and affordable homes. What’s more, these elements never go out of style and will always be the most valuable asset in your home.

You will find our boutique range of floorplans are built around these fundamental elements and when you visit our display home you will understand why these elements are so important.

Buying land

Find the best block for your build

Buying land in the ACT is not easy for anyone. You go to auction with a plan in mind and a budget, but as you see block after block snapped up, you decide to buy just so you don’t miss out. Then you discover that the block you did buy is skewed or on a deeper slope. The costs of adapting your plan and preparing your block mount up.

For some buyers, this may mean abandoning your home ideas or selling your land.

Ram Living can help.

Come to us before you go to auction. Let us know the type of block you have in mind, and we’ll tell you:

  • what to look out for, including hidden costs for some blocks
  • likely costs of adapting your plan for the type of block on hand

With this knowledge under your belt, you have a better grasp of all the costs for your build, from design right through to construction and finishings.

That way, you go to auction, confident in knowing what bid you can afford to win.

Design review

If you already own a block, ask us for a design review. We’ll uncover the critical factors for making a home work on that block. From the shape and gradient, to passive solar orientation, you can assess the full costs — before you start building.

Our design review costs a few hundred dollars – that’s a small investment compared to outlaying hundreds of thousands of dollars on a home. Getting a design review before you sign contracts with your builder saves you time and money. Fewer design changes, lower architect fees, and fewer surprises.

RAM’s design review helps you manage your risks. Not only that, it helps you make sound decisions based on in the real conditions on the ground, in your block.
