How much does a custom home cost?

There are a variety of factors that will affect the cost of your new home build. The size, number of spaces, internal finishes & external materials are just a few things that will affect the construction cost. Understanding your overall project budget allows us to work collaboratively to build your dream home.

Can we bring our own plans?

Yes, we can work with your existing plans and quote on the build of your new home.

Can we use the home designs on the website?

Our home designs are available to give you inspiration and kick-start some ideas for your new home build. You can combine floors plans and facades to get started. We can use these initial ideas to start customising the concept design for your new home.

What is the first step building a custom home?

Learning more about your project, budget and vision in an initial consultation is where we usually start to find out if we are the right fit for each other. We have a simple new build questionnaire that is available online for you to complete. With this questionnaire we can get an understanding of what you are looking for and learn a bit more about the site & new home build.

Can we see some homes you’ve built?

We have a custom home we built at Catherine Hill Bay you can request to walk through (via appointment only). You can even stay a couple of nights. Learn more here.

What is the process for a custom home?

We’ve written a free guide here that will give you some expert information on the full custom home building process.

What kind of budget do I need for a custom home?

The budget required is dependent on a range of factors. Typically most of our homes have construction costs ranging from $550,000 – $1,500,000+. Establishing a budget early can help us work collaboratively with you to design & build a home aligned to your vision and lifestyle, but also takes into account how much it costs to build.

What is a concept design?

The concept design is the first step in building a custom home (if you don’t already have a design and plans). A concept is where you start to see your ideas turn into a design. We work in collaboration at the concept stage to take advantage of the site, your ideas and our expert input to design your dream home.

How much are the professional fees?

Before you start to build there are a range of professional fees you should take into account. These are fees you should budget for, no matter what builder you use. Things such as design fees, survey fees, engineering and council fees can vary. As a rough guide you should budget for a range of $13,000 – $20,000+.
