3. How does it happen?
The home arrives to your property about 90% complete – so the kitchen you have chosen is in, the bathrooms you have chosen are completed. The internal painting is finished – we come in after it arrives and finish the join to the home, paint over the join, and then we complete the footings and piers under the home.
4. Can I get an accurate quote?
If you have purchased your land / property in the last 6 months inside your Contract of Sale that you have signed with your Solicitor /Conveyancer is a Planning and Zoning Certificate. Please give us a copy.
Please give us the site address, your chosen design and any information you have about the site.
We can still do a FREE quote, but it will be subject to receiving a Planning and Zoning Certificate.
5. Where do you travel to?
We travel most of NSW but our pricing is quoted for a 100km radius of Heatherbrae after 100km we have an additional trucking charge and a Trades Travel Allowance for our trades which can be quoted accordingly.
6. Can you build on a sloping block?
Yes, As our homes can accommodate for 700mm(approx.) off the ground, we don’t need a perfectly flat block of land. We can adjust the pier height to suit the lands natural fall – taking out the need for site costs other builders will charge you for.
If your home needs to be built higher for any reason, there will be crane hire and engineering design costs involved, but we can talk you through the most cost-effective option for your site.
Our construction method includes engineered concrete footings and piers which are included in the price of the home to .700mm high.
8. I don’t have access to my block?
If there is no access to your site – No problem! We can take our tools and our trades to your site and build your home on site.
9. How long does it take to build my home?
After your quote is complete we draw the full plans up and organize your building contract to be signed. We then organize Council Approval and we will organize a time for you to come in and do a colour selection. After this is completed, we order your home and the factory stage takes 10 to 12 weeks to complete. We also then allow a further 4-6 weeks on site for completion (joining home back together, final paint). Then you are ready to move in!
10. Can the building be moved at a later date?
All our homes are constructed on a steel frame chassis and are able to be transported (subject to council approval at your new location).
11. What does your modular range offer for first home owners?
First home owners can purchase the first module from the H Design range, and then when your family grows or you just want more space, you can purchase more modules at a later date. The best part- we seek a development application approval for the whole development at the start, even if your not purchasing the other modules until a later date, saving you time and money!
