Design and budget
An experienced Sarah Homes building consultant will work with you to help you choose and work with the design that is right for you and your block of land. Our consultant would be delighted to visit your block to see how best we can build your dream home.
Once the consultant has discussed your requirements we will fine tune your design and present you with a preliminary budget estimate
Things we need from you in stage 1 are copies of your land information including any encumbrance details and your design brief.
Details and initial works
For an investment of $2,000 we will complete the investigation of your site and start developing the technical design and documentation of your new home.
A preliminary site report including:.
- A soil profile assessment
- A preliminary footing report
- Site aspect and levels
- Preliminary plans and elevations of your
home on your block
- Preparation of all the required contract documents.
Things we need from you at this stage are for you to arrange your finance. We can always help you with this by introducing you to an independent mortgage broker.
Contract and Selections
Your final contract file is now completed and ready for signing.
The documentation will include:
- Working Drawings
- Contract Pricing Schedule
- Building Schedule and Specifications
- Colour and Selections Schedule
On signing of your contract a further payment of $2,500 is required. You will then meet with our experienced selections staff to choose your colours and finishes. To prepare for selections visit our display villages and make a note
of the colours and combinations that you like, or spend some time in our brand new Selection Centre in Mile End.
We will then lodge your Council Planning Application, getting Building Certification and Development Approval
At this stage we will make the final preparations for construction. Orders will be issued to all the relevant suppliers and contractors for all the materials and services required to build your new home.
You will be introduced to your Building Supervisor who will liaise with you throughout the construction process and ensure that your home is built to the exacting standards that you can expect from a Sarah Home
Two weeks prior to the completion of your new home your supervisor will meet you for the final pre-inspection and arrange an appointment to hand over the keys to your new home. This is the time that you can celebrate with family and friends!
