Communication will take place with us at this stage to discuss your exact situation regarding your building requirements and for us to answer any questions you may have about designing and building your new home.

After your initial contact, we will organise a sit-down meeting for you with Brad to discuss your individual circumstances, for example do you have land already? Do you have plans already?
If you have plans, we will go through them with you, if not we can offer our in-house design service for you.
3. Design Stage
We work with you carefully to understand your particular design style and building preferences to design a home that reflects your personality and requirements. Concept plans will be provided for you to review. This is a very important stage in the process as several concept designs may be required to get the design exactly right for you.
Upon settling on a final design and plan for your new home, we will be able to provide you with an initial estimate of the construction costing of your home.
4. Fixed Price Tender Proposal
At this point in the process you will sit down with Brad to work through your inclusions such as fittings, finishes and all the finer details that go into making your home unique.
Once complete we will have all the information we require to prepare a fixed price tender proposal for you.
5. Preliminary Building Agreement
The Preliminary Building agreement will be presented to you along with the tender proposal. This will include preparation of full working drawings, basix report, soil testing, engineering design and home building contract.
The PBA is specific to each job and is dependent upon site location and council requirements. You will be guided as to the most relevant works required for your home.
6. Contract Signing
We have now prepared your home building contract and final construction plans for your final review prior to signing of documents. Once you have reviewed, a meeting will be organised with Brad where all required documents will be signed and any questions you may have can be asked.
We will now apply for the Home Building Compensation Fund (HBCF) certificate of insurance for you project, once received we will request payment of a deposit as agreed in the home building contract.

8. Individual Selections
We will provide you with individual stage selection sheets after the contract signing stage, with an explanation of when each stage is required to be returned and how to complete selections.
If you would like assistance with selections and colour choices, we are available to assist you at any stage or alternatively we can arrange a meeting with our interior designer to assist you.
Once construction commences on your new home you are encouraged and welcome to meet Brad and/or our project manager on site for designated meetings, to see first hand the progress of your new home. We will update you weekly by email on the progress of you home and what is planned for the week ahead.
