Built for you, with you in mind.

Rest assured, we are great at what we do. We’ve built over 5,000 homes and counting – all with an excellence in style, construction, and customer experience.

To us, it’s crucial that your new home is everything that you have ever dreamed of, and that the experience is fun along the way. As such, we will be with you all the way! 

1. We want to understand your situation.

Understanding your likes and dislikes, and what is most important to you is an essential first step of the process.

Getting to know you will help us create the perfect home for you and your family, and all the while, forming a great working relationship as we embark on this journey together.

3. Personalising your new home.

Now this is the fun part! As part of our inclusive interior styling service, you will be assigned your very own Interior Stylist to help you choose your colours, fittings, fixtures and finishes to create a home that truly reflects your style.

When visiting our in-house design suite, we encourage you to bring along plenty of photos of styles, colour schemes and materials that you’d like to use as inspiration for the slyle of your new home.

4. Preparing your finances.

This is where we need to establish how much you can borrow, and how you’ll manage the costs associated with building your home.

Then, we’ll be able to help you to more confidently select a home design, and all the personalised touches that fit within your budget.

Making sure that finances are in order is a key part of the process of building a house

5. Building permit and contract.

At this stage, you would’ve selected your home design and floor plan, and have been provided a quote to build your home. Now, we will prepare your building contract and guide you through the documentation and next steps. At this point,  your first deposit will be required to secure the purchase of your new home.

Depending on where you are building, you may also need to provide a developer approved stamped plan and/or a receipt as evidence that a Community Infrastructure Levy has been paid.

Planning permits may also apply, so be sure to check this with the vendor of the land or your conveyancer. Once we have received your unconditional file, we are then able to apply for a building permit. The time it takes to process the permit depends on the municipality and any additional information the council requires.

This is where your block of land is prepared for building. Before the slab is poured, we install parameter fencing, make final site preparations and lay underground connections.

Base stage construction is coordinated from within the office and a Site Supervisor will be allocated once this stage is complete.
