Let’s make a plan, together

Our role is to ensure you get the very best out of your building site and budget. We want you to bring your ideas and all the inspiration you have gathered. Don't worry if you haven't got much - we've got  plenty to get your journey started!

Begin organising and prioritising your ideas by looking through our designs. Our team can build from your architect's plans, or we can work with you to see how one of our designs might be tweaked to suit your needs.

Concepts & budgets

We think of this stage like a friendly game of tennis. You lob ideas at us and we come back with options - working together to refine the plan to your satisfaction.

The final plan, deposit - give us the green light

Once the final plan is locked in, we will present you with a building contract, final plans, specifications, and a construction guarantee. Before you sign anything, seek legal advice so you can be 100% confident moving forward.

Council permits & consent process

We will prepare all the paperwork and work towards prompt approvals by making working drawings, getting engineers' sign-offs, and lodging your building consent for you.

Interior consultation - your colours, your way

Choosing the colour palette for your home is one way you can ensure you get the home you want. By sitting down with our interior consultants, you can begin flesh out the story you want to tell.

Next, you bring into the mix your textiles and joinery;  floor coverings, drapes, window joinery, benchtops, fittings, and so on.

Site prep, foundation & framing

The first stage is to prepare the platform upon which we will place the building's foundations. If your site requires any retaining walls, preparations for this will start at this time.

Your foundations will be dug and set, the home's footprint boxed and the concrete slab poured. 

This is the skeleton stage. Over one to three weeks, you will see the bones of your new home. Walls and roof are framed, and you'll be able to start walking through and pacing out your plans.

Close in - the inside job

Over the next fortnight, cladding goes on the walls, windows are put in place, and the roof is installed. It is starting to look like a house!

Plumbers and electricians begin their work. As do the insulators. Once the work is done inside the walls, next is the wall linings and paint job.

Final fit-off

Bathroom and kitchen fittings are installed. Your floor coverings are laid. With every finishing touch, your excitement will build.

Into your new home

Now that your home is complete, we will arrange for a final council inspection if required. We will also have your home cleaned.

You will need to make the final payment then we'll hand over the keys. Move in and celebrate!
