Concept to Construction
Our process to a smooth and stress-free build.
Designing your dream home.
We all have those little parts of each of our family and friends’ homes that we would love to have.
Whether it is just a little detail that makes us feel good when we walk in or a super functional use of space and/or storage. Why not squeeze all these into your next home?
“don’t stress, we offer a great design and quote service. We do work for you”
If you love where you live and want to transform your current home or build new, our first consultation works best meeting on the proposed site to brainstorm the direction you would like to go.
Keys to this project brief:
Establishing your needs and wants:
• What does a normal day consist of & what kind of spaces will you need?
• How many rooms does your family need & what size do these need to be?
• How much time do you currently spend in the different areas of your home
(indoors & outdoors)?
Setting a clear budget:
• This is a ‘must-do’ as this will act as the baseline for every decision you make
during the project.
• This also allows us to maximize value through our design for you.
Getting the Nod
Working drawings & Council approval.
Once we have exchanged contracts we will get straight onto your working drawings.
Employing a local draftsperson, engineer, surveyor & private certifier to get your plans through our local authority as seamless as possible.
While the council is approving your project there’s nothing we can do but wait, so why not use this time to grab a coffee and cruise around our areas great Tile, Paint, Electrical, Bathroom & Appliance outlets to complete your specifications sheet provided.
This will ensure a smooth construction process and eliminate last-minute stressful decisions down the track.
You should also start to think about meeting with one of our preferred cabinet makers and get a start on designing your kitchen. They are more than happy to work with you through layouts, colors & functionality.
Breaking the Dirt
The construction phase begins.
Once we get our hands on the construction certificate from our certifier, we can legally start the build. Site fence goes up, surveyors pegs are in the ground and one of our excavators will be delivered to site.
Over the next few weeks, what was a bare block of land or existing part of your house will transform dramatically, & over the coming months, you will see your vision come to life.
The key to this stage is communication. For example, you might be having second thoughts a certain tile choice or would like to see how the kitchen looks installed before you choose your floor coverings. Either way, lets set a meeting onsite so you can get a better feel of your project’s spaces.
From time to time you will hear from our Electrician too. Once the roof goes on and the external walls are sealed from the elements, he likes to do a walk through with you to make sure you are happy with the placement of your fittings.
Keys Are Yours
The move-in date is here.
We will book our certifier to come through and check everything is to the National Construction Code (NCC) and get our final occupation certificate.
After this, we meet on-site to do a handover and show you through what keys are for where, how your utilities work & provide your warranties.
We like to sleep easy when the wind blows so rest assured, we walk away knowing one of your greatest investments have been built solid to stand the test of time for you and your family.
