Custom design to budget and have your home handcrafted by a skilled trade-based builder
Whether you’re looking to Build a project style house plan or custom home design … you need the right one before you can fine-tune the selection of your builder. Somewhere in the mix, you need to price check the proposed home design solution.
The traditional approach on offer would have you sift through house plan galleries, find a plan that looked suitable, see if it was on show house, and get a price to build on your land. No need to find a suitable builder, that comes with the package. The owner of the design would be the builder.
We think this system has it backwards. The stars would have to be aligned for you to find the right home design, for the right price, with the right builder. It is likely that you would make significant compromises to have anything resembling your perfect home design and build solution.
Why would you not design your home to budget, then select the builder on the basis of skill, reputation and experience?
Is it because you believe this would be too expensive and time-consuming?
We may not have had the tools readily available in the past, to service such an approach.
It is not the case any more. Phenomenal technological advances of recent times has dramatically changed the home design and build landscape. It has disrupted the way things are done. It is easier, quicker and more cost effective; to design, price and deliver an individually designed home than it is a standard project home.
