Building a house – if you get it right it can be rewarding, enjoyable, and an experience of a life time. Here is a few tips to make sure your project stays on track
Choose the site for your new home carefully. Often with the initial excitement of making the first step in this journey you will feel pressured to buy the first block you find. Certainly you don’t want to miss out on the right opportunity when it comes along, but always remember to take a step back and assess it unemotionally and if you aren’t sure ask a friend or mentor for a second opinion
Keep a scrapbook of plans and pictures of homes and finishes that you like. This will help your designer to put together a concept that ticks all the boxes for you
A proper quote should include at least a floor plan, detailed list of inclusions, and an itemised fixed price break down of your investment. Other important information that could be included are 3D concept drawings, payment stages, and information on the building process
Check out their online reviews, and go visit their office or showrooms. Make sure they don’t look like they are going to close up halfway through your project. If possible talk to other people that your builder has built for to find out about their experience
Almost everyone will make some changes or upgrades throughout the process of building a home. Having a clear understanding with your builder how these will be handled can save an unexpected headache at the end of your project. Ideally pricing for variations should be provided as they arise and signed off by both yourself and your builder
