We work hard all our lives, striving to create wealth while balancing the books and if you are finally in a position to acquire a plot land and design your retirement home, this is a very exciting time. Of course, you would have home loan approval and know your budget for the build, then you need to start talking to custom builders who specialise in turning people’s dreams into reality.
What do you do when you are ready to start the process?
Search online for Canberra home builders and take a look at their many design templates; villa, two storey and townhouse layouts can form the basis of the design and working with the architect will lead to a set of plans that can be submitted for approval. It is important to spend time at the design stage, ensuring that your new living space is designed around you and your family. If you have a specific layout in mind, the design team can work with that; only when the design stage is complete can the custom builder quote you an all-inclusive price for the build.
Choosing the location
The custom builder has empty plots in many of the top areas of Canberra and they handle the legal aspects of the freehold land purchase and when the final set of plans are approved by the local authorities, the construction can begin. Your contract with the builder would include every aspect of the build and there would be a series of stage payments, when you are invited to inspect the site, plus the project manager would keep you informed every step of the way.
Land registration, taxation and utilities are all handled by the builder and when that final project date arrives, you are invited to inspect your new home with the project manager. If there are any minor issues, they will be fixed and when all the paperwork is completed, you are handed the keys to your new home, which is ready for occupation.
Award-winning custom builders
As you would expect, there are many awards in the construction industry and in order to ensure a high level of workmanship, choose a builder with prestigious awards for building custom homes. Winning awards is an indication that the company has their act together and customer satisfaction would be high on their priority list.
Choose an established custom builder and take the first steps to building your dream home.
