New Home – Tropical Home Range

 In Maxa Designed Homes

There’s nothing like building a new home – but it can be overwhelming.  At Maxa, we offer a full in-house service to custom-design your home, or you can choose from one of our existing plans.

This Smithfield Home is from our Tropical Home Range. It’s a generous home with almost 246 m2 under roof.

Open Plan Living

There’s nothing more tropical in a North Qld home than glass doors that slide to open up a room to a patio and the outdoors.  The Tropical Range of home plans are all based on open-plan living & sustainable design.

Modern Finishes

Our homes are designed to be modern, sustainable and affordable.

We offer a full in-house interior design service to take the guess work out of your home for you.

About the Airflow

One of the most important characteristics of this home is the inclusion of a front verandah.  The additional shading to the front rooms & the considered placement of windows and lourves through the design results in constant cross-ventilation, make the home cooler.
