Design and budget

An experienced Sarah Homes building consultant will help you choose the right design for 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:.

  • soil profile assessment
  • 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 price schedule
  • building schedule and specifications
  • colour and selections schedule

On signing of your contract a further payment of $3,000 is required. You will then meet with our selections staff to choose your colours and finishes. To prepare for your selections appointment, visit our display villages and make a note of the colours and combinations that you like, or spend some time in our Mile End Selection Centre. Following confirmation of your selections we will prepare documentation to obtain required planning approval, 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. Please ensure your site is prepared and ready for construction.

Move in

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!
