Success on the slope: Wilson Construction

The sloping site underneath this stunning Hanmer Springs holiday home was all in a day’s work for D M Wilson Construction, a company with a 20-year foundation of experience, based right there in the alpine village. “We are experts in building on varying degrees of slope in Hanmer Springs. We handle all the prebuilding requirements, so clients are assured their new house is built on safe grounds and to the highest of standards,” Director David Wilson says.



Threefold Architecture created the design and ensured the house maximises the utility of the sloping section.

“The house feels just right for its location right in the middle of Hanmer – it captures the view of the pond and the village all in one,” David says.

Hanmer offers both residents and visitors an all-embracing range of weather throughout a typical year and David is delighted with Metalcraft Roofing’s new standing seam roof profile Espan©.

“The profile is innovative and it is designed with both style and performance in mind. The ribs create strongly defined shadow lines and, when combined with the concealed fixings, you get superior weather performance,” David says.

Three types of cladding are blended on the exterior and while David’s favourite is the cedar weatherboard – “You can’t beat the natural timber feel” – combined with the touches of stone veneer and metal cladding, the house is elevated far beyond any recognised standard for holiday homes.

The heightened specifications continue once inside the house and you’ll find the lock-up garage contains an inbuilt hybrid car charging port.

The team of subcontractors was integral to the quality of this build and David is keen to thank them all, “from Well Connected Electrical through to Robertson Family Decorators”.

With two further beautiful homes under construction and some bathroom renovations under way, D M Wilson Construction is dedicated to bringing an affordable yet high quality approach to all its projects.

“We set a high standard and we deliver on time and on budget,” David says.

“We are specialists when it comes to high-end quality architectural home construction and renovations, but we are just as happy to construct your new pergola or dream deck with the same amount of quality our regular clients know to expect.”
