The building process simplified.
We want the process of design, colour selection & construction to be enjoyable for you. Here is a brief overview of the steps involved.
1. Select a Design
The first step in the process is to select a plan from our extensive range of more than 120 architect developed country or urban designs. These homes are all designed to take maximum advantage of northern aspect, and can be easily mirror reversed for different block sitings. One of our consultants can assist you to select a design that will suit your requirements and budget. When you have selected a design, our consultant will then work with you on any changes you may wish to make.
2. Develop your own style
Once a final plan and facade has been selected, your design consultant will go over the schedule of finishes with you, so that not only does the design exactly meet your requirements, but it is finished to your taste and style. Once these steps have been completed, our consultant will be able to provide you with a fixed price tender. To do this we will often require a contour survey and a soil test, and we will arrange these for you. After recieving your fixed price tender, should you decide to proceed, you will then sign a purchase agreement. This is normally required by your bank or lender so that you can secure finance.
3. Drafting & council submission
Your plans and all required documentation will now be produced ready for submission to council. This process can take between 3-7 weeks depending on your location, the specific local council requirements and the design of the home you wish to build.
4. Colour Selection
You now have the exciting task of colour and product selections. You will visit one of our colour selection centres where a trained colour consultant will assist you through every choice and option. This will include brick choice, external finishes, paint colours, tiles, kitchen selections & floor coverings. You will also finalize an electrical layout, so that every switch and power point is positioned exactly where you require. Our professional consultants will be available to assist throughout the process.
Once the colours & applications are approved, we can proceed with the construction of your new home. The very last step in our construction process is to have your new home professionally cleaned - so that it is beautifully presented and ready for you to move in.
