Home Building Tips

Posted on

Having your home built is an exciting time no matter whether it is a basic home or one chosen from a range of luxury homes. It is easy to get carried away by the fancy things that can be seen such as fittings and furnishing and not pay much attention to those things that are invisible when the home is finished.

But home builders in Perth know that things like the foundations and structure are the most important things in building a home. Custom home builders understand that if these are not done correctly, then no amount of plush carpeting or fancy wallpaper will make that home a good one.

Building a home involves a massive amount of money (all paid by the home owner) and so you must feel satisfied with the construction of your home. You have a legal right to expect a good quality home that is soundly constructed. And just because you signed on the dotted line doesn’t mean that a few things cannot be changed. However the watchword here is communication – and keeping a list of things added or deleted. You will have to pay a bit extra for added things, but the reverse is true if you delete them.

Costs should be kept in perspective. It may not cost as much as you think to change those bricks to some you like better. Even if they cost something like $10 per hundred extra, the whole cost won’t work out that much more overall. What is more likely to cost the earth is if you want something unique or far out, new technology or using untested materials.

Another thing you might want to look at is add-on features such as extra rooms or another garage. Some people may consider leaving room to add on things at a later stage, but it might end up being cheaper to have them added on during the building stage. At least you will have all the building over and done with rather having to endure noise and building dust at a later stage. And how much better would your life be to have that extra space right now?
