Building your own home can be one of the most stressful and expensive things you’ll ever do. Especially if it’s two storeys.
So if I told you, you could save up to 25% of your building costs and make the whole process up to 30% faster, you probably wouldn’t believe me.
You don’t have to work harder for your double storey house, you just have to work a bit smarter…and give yourself a lift.
It seems like something out of a builders dream but jJack Building Systems have made it a reality here in Australia. After six years of research they’ve developed a way of creating double storey homes without the need for any scaffolding or working from heights.
First they build the top storey at ground level. Completely finish it off, roof and all, and then literally jack it up into the sky and then build the ground floor underneath it.
So why is this a good idea? Well, the big reason is it eliminates the need for any work to be done up high – which means no scaffolding, less danger for workers, and all of the materials can stay on the ground.
Scaffolding can cost around $20,000 for a standard two storey home, cranes can be an additional $3500, and hoists can be another $3000 to $4000.
Not to mention all the down time needed while the scaffold is put up and taken down again, plus all the room it takes up on your building site. By building with jJack all your materials can stay close at hand and you don’t have any unnecessary waiting times.
jJack building sites are safer too because you never have to work from heights. Plus, once the top storey is in place all builders on the bottom storey get to work in the shade or be protected from the rain.
