Family’s build saves $120,000 on a Paal home. Craig & Robyn Bowen - Theresa Park NSW Real people building their own dream homes... Paal makes owner building easy and most Paal customers do it themselves. They take pride in their achievement and can save up to $100,000 or more in the process. Others would rather project-manage and employ contractors. Paal can recommend builders from its extensive network across Australia. The trend of owner-managing is one that has grown over the years. Owner-managing still provides cost savings and the satisfaction of overseeing the project. Whichever way you choose, Paal is set up to accommodate. We stand behind the kit homes we sell and provide second-to-none customer service that will back you all the way through to your home’s completion.

Fifty years of helping customers Australia wide, to achieve their home building dreams Paal Kit Homes has come a long way from its beginnings. Chris and Ursula Nobis migrated from Europe, bringing with them a determination to build their own business and adapt the concept of modular building to local conditions. Chris turned an old dairy shed in Penrith into a workshop and began manufacturing parts for his first kit home and garage designs. In those days, steel framing was relatively new, but the white ants were good salesmen. People also appreciated the simplicity of a bolt-together frame structure when considering building. 62

Paal is Australia’s most experienced manufacturer of quality steel framed kit homes Paal Kit Homes has been Australia’s leading and most trusted kit home manufacturer for over 50 years. Paal gives you complete flexibility over your design. All our designs can be extended, and layout changed to realise your dreams.
