Custom Home Builders Gold Coast
A custom home builder is a building company that works closely with clients through every single part of the house-building process, big or small.
This allows for the client to offer constant feedback as the job is underway so that the result is entirely customised to their exact specifications.
The benefits of this are definitely clear, but read on to find out why you should hire a custom home builder on the Gold Coast for your building project.
The house is made for you
The builders use the right subcontractors
Normally you would have to source the subcontractors yourself.
Not only does this take time, but it can be hard to know if you really have the best for the job – you might not be able to even tell the difference until it is too late.
Custom home builders take care of this for you, they usually have subcontractors that they trust and use regularly, saving you the hassle of searching for them and removing the fear of if you made the right choice or not.
They’ve perfected their process
Custom home builders have been honing their craft for many years, giving them the right knowledge to run any operation or project as smoothly as possible.
No matter how involved you are in the construction, your builders should get the job done effectively and to a good schedule.
Being involved does not mean needing to take the reins on an administrative level – they will take care of that for you, letting you relax and focus on getting the exact house you want.
It’s a long-term investment
Frequently asked questions
What is The 'fall of the land' and how does it impact the overall cost of my Build?
The fall of land is a phrase used to describe the steepness of a block. A flat block is ideal because it is easier to build on and requires less preparation. A flat block is most often built with a slab foundation which is known to be the easiest, fastest and most cost-effective way to build.
With that said, we can still use moderate or steep blocks to build on, but they do add to the overall cost of the building. There is more preparation required to create a solid foundation, and the steeper it gets the more work is required to prepare the space for the construction.
Generally speaking, when preparing sloping blocks we have to excavate and create retaining walls. In some cases, when the fall of the land is too steep, we can’t use a slab and have to rely on alternative construction techniques. The steeper the block, usually the more expensive it is to build on it.
I don’t have any specific designs or plans in mind for my home. Can you help?
Just because you don’t have any designs or plans for your new home, doesn’t mean there aren’t things you would like. We can work with you to determine exactly what you would like from your new home. You can work with a designer to consider different aesthetic touches or other requirements you might want to consider that would suit your lifestyle well.
We can be available to assist as you develop a plan that suits your tastes and needs perfectly. Once that’s done, we can get started on building your home – but we make sure to include you throughout the entire project to guide the design and ensure it is what you want.
What are Typical associated homebuilding site costs?
Homebuilding site costs encompass all of the works necessary to prepare your block for building. This includes the work that needs to be done to level the block for foundations. Other site costs cover the connection of various services such as water, electricity and gas.
In some projects, such as those that require a knock-down to rebuild, site costs associated with demolition and clearing debris needs to be planned. In these types of projects, councils may enforce the installation of new services, so it is important to check this out before starting as it is the responsibility of the owner, not the builder.
There is no set pricing for any of your homes, why?
At Revolution Projects, we build custom homes that are tailored to our clients specific wants and needs. This includes taking things like aesthetics, exterior design and budget requirements into consideration. Due to the nature of custom work, it is practically impossible to establish a set price. We can offer guidance prices to give you a good idea of the feasibility of a project and to help guide your decisions when thinking about a custom home.
Generally speaking, there are four main components that affect the overall cost of a custom home. These factors are the biggest variables when pricing a build, so you should always consider them. These factors include:
- The size of the development
- The complexity of the building design
- Any bespoke features that you would like to implement
- The fall of the land
