What To Consider When Building

Whether you are looking to build a double storey, split level or duplex home, choosing to build your home makes for an exciting adventure! Although it may seem daunting, it is one of the best investments you can make.

A clear and detailed budget is essential to a successful construction project. Custom homes are a worthy investment, but can quickly run over budget. A clear spending plan will help when dealing with overpayments and unforeseen expenses.

We recognise that it is OUR responsibility to provide reliable products and services of consistent high quality that comply fully with the relevant specifications and contract documents and which address the needs and expectations of our customers. Thus, we always exercise expert judgement when deciding on details not expressed in the specification or shown on the plans. 

Land and Lighting

Land plays a cardinal role in the design and construction of your new house. Its location, size and orientation are all factors that will influence how and where your home is built. You cannot build a large home on a piece of land that will not fit it!

Additionally, natural lighting and airflow are crucial considerations in building a house. Considering the suns path in various seasons will help determine how you should orient your home and its layout for optimal light and airflow. Maximising natural light and airflow is not only eco-friendly but budget friendly too, helping to reduce electricity and heating costs!

We are experts when it comes to determining the best for you and your home. We are able to fully customise your design so your outdoor space is both beautiful and functional.

Layout and Design

As trusted custom living home builders, we’ve helped many homeowners with home projects. Your future home will be a place you spend most of your time. A successfully planned layout will make your home experience all the better!

One key consideration when designing the layout of your home is your lifestyle. This design should incorporate and enhance all the important aspects of your home life. Zoning will help determine where specific rooms should be placed.

As leading custom builders, we assess the layout of your home to make the most of the space you have.


Before you can begin building your envisioned home, you need several approvals from the government and other local authorities. This is to ensure that all building rules and regulations are put into place and being followed. 

Getting building approval involves plans and details that show how the house will be built, the technical details surrounding the construction materials that will be used and what Building Code of Australia (BCA) will be met.
