When starting out on a new build project, it is important to ask the right questions. But as a new-comer to the world of home building, what are the right questions?
The key components that often trip up a new build seem to be similar regardless of the owner’s individual requirements. We’ve covered a couple of these below, to help you with your project home build.
Why should I build with you?
This initial question is a very important one to ask and the answer will really depend on your personal circumstances. What is important to you when looking for a building partner? Is it price alone? Quality? Speed? Evaluating exactly what you are looking for in a home, and subsequently your project builder, is the cornerstone to facilitating a positive building experience. Beechwood Homes endeavour to meet the unique needs of all their clients.
Can you build to suit my block?
Block size, slope and location can put additional demands on building requirements. It is really important to discuss any concerns you have about your block of land with your builder to ensure you do not stumble across any unforeseen costs during the construction process.
What are the inclusions for my home design’s package?
Thoroughly understanding exactly what comes as part of your home’s building package avoids disappointment when it comes to your finished product. So many people assume that certain things will be included as a standard feature and are really upset when they check their contract too late. If you have any doubts, always clarify with your builder as to exactly what comes with your home.
What if I want to change one of your standard designs?
Although modern home designs are usually carefully considered to account for flow, function and appeal, sometimes they may just require a few little changes. Always check with your builder if alterations are allowed and at exactly which point they need to be made. Deadlines for alterations to design are usually very early in the construction process so that the builder can provide the best possible finished product.
What is expected of me during the construction process? How will I know when to do these things?
Understanding your role as the home owner in the construction process can help to ensure that it runs smoothly towards a successful outcome. It is important to always keep an open channel of communication with your project builder to avoid delays, conflicts and disappointments.
