Building Your New Home – The Process

Imagine living in your dream home, where you can design every aspect to suit you! Everything you’ve ever wanted in a house that caters for your entire family. Well, the reality of materialising this dream doesn’t have to be so far away. With work, time, energy and some great builders, you can be living in a brand new house fit to call home. However, there is a high level of perfection that is necessary to ensure your home is of high-quality and lasting, and so there is a process to follow when we do personalised design and build projects. By understanding this process, you can be better assured of all that a new build entails.If you get in touch with us at Craft Group & Co (known as Craft Construction), we can help through this entire process, right from the start.

The first step for you is understanding your budget for your design & build. Usually your budget needs to be increased by about 10% more than what you originally plan for. Remember to consider costs such as building materials, fixtures and labour.

At this point, it’s good to get familiar with your vision. What is it that you really want? From here you can speak with an architect who can help you get those dreams into plans and ensure all requirements are being met. Here your budget can be revised and costing reconsidered. Here, we can provide you with a final quote and run it all by the council. After a bit of documentation and paperwork, the building can begin!

Throughout the build we’ll always be a phone-call away and will be available for regular meetings and check ins so you can be sure that everything is going smoothly. When it’s all done, we’ll hand over the keys and keep in touch until you’re confident that your new home is everything you want it to be.
