This is the stage where you get to discuss what you’d like in a new home and what your budget is. So we’re keen to hear from you about details like your lifestyle and future plans (i.e. if you’re planning on having a family).
Next we start to work up some home designs based on your initial input and a site inspection. This also helps us draw up a cost estimate, which is presented along with a concept design, which you then approve once you’re happy.
Take a close look through your package. Once you’re happy with the plans, specifications and contract documents, we’ll need you to sign these prior to submitting to council for building consent, and if required, resource consent.
Just because your plans are in council doesn’t mean nothing happens! This is the stage where you get to choose the materials, colours, and finishes for the inside and outside of your new home. Once council approves everything, we start building! An established timeline and regular catchups with your dedicated Project Manager will keep you well informed throughout the build stage.
Upon completion of the build our Project Manager will review your new home and conduct a walk-through with you, so we can undertake a complete quality control check. A council inspection is also undertaken, and then finally handover day where you get the keys to your new home!
