Once you have accepted the sketched floorplans, an architect will transform this sketch into more accurate concept drawings. This should take no more than 5 days.
When you are happy with your concept drawings, we will proceed to the building agreement with your chosen building company. It should take about 7 days to create the agreement.
Council, the builder and the architect will need to understand the condition of your block. A review of the soil, site level and engineering is needed. This process can take up to 3 weeks.
Now you are ready to lodge your plans for council approval.
Council approval is required before your home can be built and if the house meets all building and licensing requirements. You are now ready to start the Planning Application.
This is the fun part. It’s the part where you get to choose your colours and potentially add that little bit of luxury to your home. We will let you know when selections should be booked with your builder. Allow 4-5 hours for this session.
Once the council gives notice of approval and appropriate insurances are in place – your builder will issue you notice of a construction start date.
From the start date, there are 6 stages of construction. At each stage you can expect the builder to send you invoices. You will need to sign and send them off for processing.
The Foundation is expected to be completed within 4 weeks consisting of trending, plumbing and concrete pour. Some clients will have a slab party, others choose to have imprints of their hands on the slab.
It will take approximately 4 weeks for your frames to go up. Your house is starting to take shape!
At this point, all of your colour combinations and ideas will be coming to life. Your external walls and roof will be visible.
Rooms take shape, internal walls go up and the colour and shape of your house start to fill out.
We are almost there: your home’s cabinetry and taps are being installed and your house is now complete from the outside.
You will be invited to walk through your house to inspect and identify areas you wish to fix. By the end of this stage your house is about 97% done.
Congratulations your home is now ready and at this point you will pick up your keys.
