If you can dream it, we can build it

From the facade, to how your house sits on the block, to the interior finishes, you’re only limited by your imagination (and budget). As a custom home builder we can guide you through the best options for your new home to take advantage of the site and to maximise the features & spaces in your home.

What does it cost?

That depends on what you’re looking for. Number of rooms, spaces, finishes, bathrooms, materials and so much more play a huge part in your overall cost. Having an idea of your project budget early while we develop the concept design can help us work with you to build the home of your dreams at a budget that works.

What is the process for a custom built home?

Stage 1: Questionnaire & Consultation

This is where we find out what style of home you want & need. We take time getting to know you — your personality, style and more. We also take into account the site, positives, negatives & how to best maximise it. This helps us provide suggestions, and ensure you get a house that works in perfect harmony with you.

Stage 2: Concept Design

Once we know what you want from your custom home, we’ll create an initial concept design. The concept is where you start to see your vision come to life. We work with you collaboratively during this process to get feedback on the design and start creating the look, feel & functionality of your dream home.

Stage 3: Site Visit & Construction Drawings

Once we have created a concept design, we will move forward & develop your construction drawings. At this point a site survey will be necessary and we will even do a site visit. It’s important to take into account any environmental factors such as sun positioning, shade spots and lines of sight, to make sure we build a house that leverages its’ natural environment for your ultimate comfort, privacy and pleasure. Once construction drawings & engineering are completed we can complete all the necessary council submissions to get approval for construction.

Stage 4: Formal Quote & Tender

The vision of your dream home is now starting to turn into a reality. With construction drawings & engineering completed, we can formally estimate and quote the project. The formal quoting process gives you an exact fixed price amount for the construction of your new home.

Stage 5: Construction

Once all plans are approved, contracts signed & the construction certificate is issued, we’ll get to work. During this stage, we’ll consult with you every step of the way. We will be in constant contact and you can make regular site visits to check how your new home is progressing.

How quickly can we build your house?

The average council approval process can take time, however we aim to streamline the lodgement process to save wasted weeks, errors & constant back and forth. The construction time will vary depending on the size and complexity of your new home, however we work to a timeline and take into account any factors that require you to be in your home by a certain date.

Contact us today for an initial consultation

The best place to start is an initial enquiry & the completion of our new build questionnaire (it takes 5 minutes). At this stage we can see if we’re a good fit for your project, if we can work within your agreed budget, or if we see any potential roadblocks with your dream home ideas. To get started just enter your details, tell us a bit more about your home and access our new build questionnaire to complete.
