When you’re reached a time in your life when you’re looking for a change, a refresh of the norm and considering building a new home, some careful thought and planning will be required.
There are a number of factors that play a part in building a new home including your budget, deciding on where you want to now live, design of the home and functional changes to the home.
We have found that now is a good time to consider building a home with low mortgage rates and the Queensland Government’s HomeBuilder Grant offering $24,000 toward the construction costs. You may also be entitled to the First Home Owners Grant of $15,000 toward building a new home. Previously, many people were disheartened, thinking they could never enter the housing market but this is now changing for the better.

Gold Coast Construction Process
First, we will visit the site for an inspection. This will allow us to assess the characteristics of the land, slope, views and construction planning requirements for the project.
If the land is sloped, we will look at a sloping block option which may include a split level home design or heavy landscaping.
Once we have the land planning in place, we can finalise the design of the home. We will work with you to achieve exactly what you’re looking for in your new home within your budget.
Now we can provide an accurate pricing schedule for your review. We can of course make adjustments to that to meet your needs and preferences. This will be an all inclusive quote so you will know what’s included.
Once you approve the quote and give us permission to proceed, we will start on the construction phase.
During this time, you are welcome to attend the site and view the work done. If you have any questions or want to change something, just let us know and we will do our best to do so within the design specifications.
