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.
