Where some builders will charge thousands for extra luxuries, Kaplan homes have generous inclusions as standard. Here’s 10 of the best.


As the old song goes, ‘you can’t always get what you want’. But is it always true? Personally, I don’t think it is – building a home with Kaplan proves that you actually can get everything you want. It’s possible to have a brand-new family home, complete with a generous list of inclusions for zero extra cost.

Building a home with Kaplan will save you thousands on the extra items that make a house a home. Where other builders will charge you big bucks for every additional tile or handle, Kaplan keep it simple with one cost right up front. You get exactly what you want, all customised exactly to your tastes and preferences.

So, what exactly is included with a Kaplan home? Let’s go on a tour of your brand-new home to find the top 10 inclusions that will cost you nothing.

1. Air conditioning

Whether your family runs hot, cold or neutral, you can keep it cosy or cool with air conditioning as standard in every home. We use Actron Ducted Air Conditioning – it’s energy efficient and has more super smart technology than you can poke a USB stick at; a trusted brand more than capable of coping with the challenges of the Australian climate.

2. Insulation

And while we’re on the subject of energy efficiency, your home will have R2 insulation for all exterior walls for extra thermal comfort. That’s more than the standard requirement which means you could save big on your energy costs.

3. Stacking doors

Take a stroll into the lounge, and enjoy the natural light. In the warmer months welcome in the fresh air by opening the stacking doors to make your indoor living area part of the outdoors. Stacking doors (and fresh air) are both included in the upfront price.
