Rebuilding a home lost in a bushfire is an extremely emotional and complex experience. The results will be with you for years—perhaps a lifetime—so taking your time to get it right from the beginning is crucial.
It’s important to know what type of professionals or tradespeople to work with to optimise the energy performance of the new home and meet the required BAL rating or goals for overall bushfire resistance. Take your time to find people you trust to help you plan and design a home that meets these requirements and more.
