Top tips for building your new home
Whether it’s your first home or your third, here are some of our top tips when it comes to building a new home. Get some helpful advice from the experts.
Talk to us right at the start
By getting Design Builders involved early on, you will get expert advice on location and siting and we can identify any challenges and be more upfront about what will be required, so we can factor these into the design and budget.
Get some inspiration
It’s important to fill your head with ideas and inspiration. Visit showhomes, check out websites – including this one – look at magazines, and download your free copy of our very own Inspired.
Get the design right
Once the actual house construction is underway, any changes from the design can add to the cost. So, make sure you are happy with all the design decisions, including finishing and style, early on.
Know your budget
Anyone who has built a home knows that the budget is finite. There are things you can’t live without, and things you can. Be clear on these, and know when to draw the line.
