Frequently asked questions
Do I need to pay upfront for architecturally designed plans/renders & elevations?
No, our process means we meet with you on your section & start to gather information on what your dreams are. We sit down with a blank piece of paper and get all of your design elements into a design brief. It’s not until you are completely happy with the footprint of your home, how it looks & feels, and the price before we go off to the contract stage and a deposit is paid.
How do you keep communication up through the build?
We run an app via a mobile app, and as a client you are able to communicate with subcontractors, see timelines and completion dates. Each portion of the build is broken down with timeframes on each.
Do you charge a generic square metre rate?
No, and any builder that sets a square metre rate before doing a design might be telling you porky’s. A square box is far cheaper to build than a rectangular one - even if they are the same square meterage. A rectangle for example needs more windows, more cladding, more Gib because its circumference is larger than a square of the same size internally. We will explain this more in a design brief, but we can work to most budgets depending upon design.
What are your prices?
Prices vary depending on what you are looking for. Our process means we meet with you on your section & start to gather information on what your wants and needs are. We sit down with a blank piece of paper and get all of your design elements into a design brief and it goes in for pricing.
What insurances do you have to protect my new build?
How long does a build take?
We have a sunset clause in our contracts, but from slab down to completion is approximately 6 months (depending on how Architectural the build is).
