We are very happy with our completed house which grew from the initial concept of building a Federation replica house to fit in with the Bassendean traditional style that evolved around the Australia Federation period.

Initially Sovereign had not completed a Federation replica house and we had to do considerable research referencing architectural books and content on the internet (www) covering the Australian Federation period. These concepts and themes where provided to Sovereign to produce a Federation house design for our long narrow block. Sovereign gave us good flexibility to independently source specialist Federation suppliers and tradespeople to work in with their building supervisor. Independent suppliers included Federation Tile Factory, Recollections (electrical fittings), Perth Plaster Mouldings (Corbels, Living Arch, Ceiling Roses), Traditional Stained Glass (large feature Leadlight window), Perth Timber Floors, 19th Century Nostalgia, and The Colour Collection.

In combination with the Building Supervisor we were allowed good site access to synchronise specialist federation tradespeople with the builders schedule and trades persons. At times the synchronisation was difficult when fitting in specialist tradespeople, but with regular communication with Building Supervisor we were able to achieve a successful outcome.

Finally after considerable collaboration and cooperation between Builder, Building Supervisor, Specialist Suppliers and Trades persons we achieved our target goal for our authentic Federation luxury replica home.
