Foundations are being laid for a home with a difference in Busselton.

Gemmill Homes and James Hardie have joined forces to build the Variety WA Charity Home with all net proceeds from the sale to benefit the children’s charity.

Vasse MLA Troy Buswell was on hand to inspect building process today and said it was good to see an established builder support a great cause.

“A lot of people here have a long-term relationship with Variety WA and there have been families that have been receiving support from them,” he said.

“Hopefully when its auction time the cause will receive the support that it should.”

Gemmill Homes managing director Craig Gemmill said the eco-friendly home was designed to take advantage of its prominent street location along Bussell Highway.

“We are excited to do a charity home in a regional area with fantastic support again from all our suppliers and subcontractors,” he said.

“Partnering with James Hardie allows us to create an innovative design and showcase a lot of new materials.”

The home is due for completion in early September and will be auctioned in October.
