Q What is a stump house?

A stump home is a home that is built on adjustable piers elevated approximately 1 meter above the ground. The stumps are made from galvanised steel, so they will withstand most environment conditions, as well as adding the benefit of being adjustable.

Q What maintainance do stump houses require?

Structurally almost no maintenance is required. A visual inspection every 6 month or so as part as a general home maintenance schedule is recommended.

Q Why should I build a stump house?

Building on Slopes:
Finding that perfect block of land high in the hills doesn’t mean that you can’t build your dream home. One of the major benefits of building on a stump home is their ability to be adapted to land that is on a slope, or steep gradients. As the homes are built on individual stumps, they can easily be constructed to different lengths enabling a level and stable home to be built on the inclines. Building on Stumps can also alleviate the cutting and filling or retaining walls generally associated when building homes on a slab foundation on sloping land. When choosing your land, it is best to keep in mind that flatter land is generally more cost effective on both stump and slab homes.

Building on reactive soils:
Some soils, particularly our famous Black soil, have a tendency to expand and shift dramatically during extreme wet and dry weather. These kinds of shifts can have devastating and expensive effects on solid slab foundations that aren’t correctly designed. The piers on a stump home can easily be adjusted to compensate for any movement in the soil, which removes the damaging effect on your home.
