Q. HOW MUCH WILL IT COST, WHATS YOUR M2 RATE? - Let's talk about your budget
A. M2 Rates are not a great indicator of value for money. No two homes are the same, so their shape, size, inclusions, and rates will be different too!
From First Home to Luxury Dream Home, you will have a budget in mind for what you are comfortable investing in your new home.
We work with you to create a stunning fit-for-purpose home within the price guidance you give us. Once we are clear on the numbers, we work everything else to meet that!
Q. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE? - You've got a timeline you're working towards
A. Your home will be as unique as you make it! And that can take time to get right!
We won’t rush you through the design and selection stage – we’ll match your pace, so you are confident in your decisions! When it comes to the build, the size and complexity of the project have the most impact on the length of the build. Our clients average 8-11 months for lifestyle homes and longer for larger or complex builds.
We’ll discuss & confirm the actual build schedule prior to breaking ground.
Q. WHO DEALS WITH THE ARCHITECT, COUNCIL & SUPPLIERS? - You're worried that this process is complex
A. More than just a builder, we are a start-to-end building services firm. So we’re here to manage the whole process. By involving us early in your planning, you can be assured everything will be aligned to meet your design inspiration & budget investment expectations. This saves you stress, headaches, time, and money.
We’ll use our trusted trade partners on the practical aspects of your home.
And you’ll see it come to life through our online client portal, scheduled walk-through appointments, and design check-ins before your beautiful new home is ready for you to move in!
Q. DO YOU HAVE STANDARD PLANS? - Let's talk about a home that fits your site and family perfectly
A. As a Custom Home Builder, we are anything but STANDARD.
We love working with you to create your ideal home. We’ll work together with our designer to maximise what matters most to you. We’ll consider the best shapes & site positioning to capture sunlight, views & how you like to live in your home!
If you are looking for inspiration, we are happy to share what has worked for our other clients, but you can trust that your home will be as unique as you!
Q. DO YOU HAVE STANDARD INCLUSIONS? - What about a look that inspires you
A. We have a range of products, fixtures, and fittings that we regularly find our clients like to use. We use these as a guide for initial estimates only. This is YOUR home, so when it comes to the final, selections we are led by YOU.
Our interior designer will work with you to formulate and procure the right products at the right price for your new home. You’ll love the results!
Q. DO YOU ONLY BUILD NEW HOMES? - You love where you live, but need to tweak HOW you live
A. We have great solutions you love where you live, but it’s no longer fit for purpose, let’s discuss what would be best for your situation. This might be a renovation, an addition, a knock-down & rebuild, or a subdivision of your property.
If you are not sure what would work best, we’d love to hear what you are thinking, then meet you onsite to walk through your options together!
Q. CAN I BRING MY OWN PLANS? - You're already working with an architect
A. OF COURSE!
The earlier you involve your build partner in the planning, the better for all parties! Our experience tells us that architects are great at creating plans, but don’t often have a comprehensive understanding of the costs involved in bringing them to life. We work together to ensure that it fits the budget you have in mind for your new home. Sometimes even small tweaks to a design & detail can have a big cost saving, without compromising your vision for your home!
Q. WHAT TYPE OF WARRANTIES & GUARANTEES DO YOU OFFER? - We've got you covered
A. As Licensed Building Practitioners (LBP’s) we personally guarantee our workmanship for 10 years with a 12-month initial defect repair period of 12 months, starting from the date the building work is complete. Our LBP suppliers & licensed other professional services offer the same!
In addition to this, we carry comprehensive PLL & Contract works insurance, we offer our clients the 10-year Master Builders Guarantee. We only use products & suppliers that back themselves up with great warranties too! If you’d like more info on what these are, ask for our Disclosure Statement
Q. DO YOU OFFER FINANCE? OR TURNKEY SOLUTIONS? - Let's get your finance sorted
A. While we don’t offer an in-house finance solution we work with some amazing financial advisors that will assist you with funding your new home!
Our preferred suppliers can be found here: ________ link to the finance partners section_____________
They offer solutions that include both traditional build finance, as well as turnkey and bridging solutions!
Q. WHAT HAPPENS WITH PRICE INCREASES AFTER CONTRACT SIGNING? - You've heard the industry reports
A. In response to the rapidly changing world around us, we’re seeing more frequent, higher percentage increases than we otherwise have.
These are sometimes out of our ability to reasonably and/or responsibly account for in our quoting. We do our best to lock in supplier pricing early. Where we cannot, we will need to adjust the contract value to account for these items or include additional contingency to cover what may happen during your build. Your mortgage advisor will provide feedback on what is right for your situation.
Q. WHAT AREAS OF THE HOME SHOULD I SPEND MORE MONEY ON? - Want to know our Bang for Buck tips?
A. When it comes to your dream home, we always say spend a little more where you want to spend more time. For instance, if you love family dinners, spend a little more making your kitchen & dining areas somewhere special. If designer shoes are your thing, let’s create an amazing space to show off & protect your investment pieces!
For new homes we focus on getting the structure and spaces right, then the products to dress it with. It’s much easier and budget-friendly to spend now on what will cost the most down track to update. For instance, adding a few m2 more at new build stage will always cost less than adding it in the future, just so you can get your designer oven.
As far as re-sale or renovating tips are concerned, there are 3 key areas where value & home comfort levels are most frequently addressed. These are: Kitchens, Bathrooms & Master Bedrooms – all else is forgivable or fixable down the track.
