What we use

Ieshahomes knows their materials and uses only the most efficient systems and reliable materials out there- all while keeping within your budget.

Our materials feature two specific systems that set us apart and make Ieshahomes tougher, smarter, and more affordable housing. We use structural steel framing for the skeleton of your home- making its core strong and fast to build. Another important element is the roof and walls of your Ieshahome. We use a modern method called SIPS (Structural Insulated Panel System). SIPS is a highly efficient way of creating the roof and walls for your home, with the insulation sandwiched between the interior and exterior panels. Steel and SIPS are top of the range building materials and when combined make for a truly smart home that not only looks good, but is environmentally friendly.

Structural Steel

Structural Steel Framing

After 2.5 years of research and development; Ieshahomes have tried and tested many materials and find steel to be one of the best materials to work with, accurate and super tough. Today’s modern building methods and materials including light steel allow for Architectural design to become affordable; All Ieshahomes are structurally engineered in steel and are Architectural Affordable.

Ieshahomes uses modern building methods with light and structural steel work, allowing for ease and style when it comes to architectural designs. Ieshahomes are affordable, architectural, new homes and our structural steel framing has a large part to do with this. By using steel as the frame cuts costs- making it more affordable and financially efficient.

Along with the steel frame of your house, Ieshahomes builds off the ground. We use a structural steel sub-floor and poles to raise your home to an elevation between 500mm and 3.6m specific to your build. Ieshahomes also builds on concrete slab if requested. Here’s a few reason why building off the ground is incredibly more efficient than your standard concrete slab:

  1. Easily build on slopes, unstable foundations, or uneven ground.
  2. Make the most of beautiful views
  3. Less environmental impact, as well as a sustainable design.
  4. More space for you to live in and/or expand your Ieshahome
  5. Natural flow of rain means no flooding, ventilation, and they keep termites and other pests out.

SIPS Wall and Roof

sip01-bigAlong with structural steel, SIPS is another important system in making our designs strong and affordable. This Structural Insulated Panel System is used for our wall cladding and roofing.

In addition to reducing material costs and site labor time, the panel technology is ideal for creating airtight, highly energy-efficient buildings. This is an important advantage considering the ongoing discussions of increasing energy cost. When combined with the speed of construction, minimal waste and simplicity of construction, the Superior Wall System is rightly regarded as an advanced building method for the 21st Century.
