Congratulations your home is now ready and at this point you will pick up your keys. However, this is not the last time we will see your maintenance period will start. From this point on, if any minor problems are to occur, you will need to make note of each of them; your builder will be back after 3 months to fix them.
you will be invited to walj through your house to inspect and identify areas you wish to fix. By the end of this stage your house is about 97% done.
We are almost there: your home’s cabinetry and taps are being installed and your house is now complete from the outside.
Rooms take shape, internal walls go up and the colour and shape of your house start to fill out.
External Walls & Roof
At this point, all of your colour combinations and ideas will be coming to life. Your external walls and roof will be visible.
It will take approximately 4 weeks for your frames to go up. Your house is starting to take shape!
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.
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.
Full Council Approval
Once the council gives notice of approval and appropriate insurances are in place – your builder will issue you notice of a construction start date.
This is the fun part. It’s the part where you get to choose your colours and patentially 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.
Council Planning Approval
Council approval is required before your home can be built. Broadly, council wants to know if your house fits on the chosen block of land (Planning Application) and if the house meets all building and licensing requirements (Development Application). You are now ready to start the Planning Application.
Lodge To Council
Now you are ready to lodge your plans for council approval.
Council, the builder and the architech will need to understand the condition of your block. A review of the soil, site level and engineering is needed. His proceess can take up to 3 weeks.
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.
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.
