There are many small parts to the building process, but if you’re building for the first time, then consider the Davis Sanders Homes five main steps to cover, from choosing your plans right through to holding the front door with keys in your hand.

1. Reviewing Your Options

Start finding out just how great your Davis Sanders home could be with an obligation-free review of your requirements, objectives and budget. This includes a free site inspection with an appraisal for home siting, energy efficiency assessment and preliminary costing.

2. Choosing and Approving a Design 

You have the choice of using our award-winning Design Service to create a unique Custom Design Home, or selecting and adapting an existing plan from the Country Living, Designer Living or Urban Collection ranges. Either way, Davis Sanders Homes will prepare a full set of construction drawings, with complete specifications and a final project costing, for your approval.

3. Setting the Price and Timeline

Once your design is approved and Davis Sanders Homes have surveyed your home site, a fixed price and fixed timeline for the construction of your home is guaranteed. The price will only vary if you decide to make changes during the building process, so you know there are no nasty surprises down the track.

4. Colour Consultation

Colour consultants will help you select complementary bricks, tiles, paints and laminates so your new home reflects your taste – from the exterior architectural detail right through to the interior fittings and finishes.

5. Getting Your Approvals

Contract documentation and permit applications and pay all the associated fees for insurances, warranties, engineering plans and so on will be prepared. All you have to do is sign the contract.

6. Building Your Home

Your building supervisor will manage the whole project to bring your home in on time and on budget, keep you informed of progress and answer any questions as they arise.

7. Settling In

The service doesn’t stop the day you move in. Davis Sanders Homes carry out a 3-month maintenance check to make sure you’re settling in smoothly and are totally happy with every aspect of your new home.

See Davis Sanders Homes on stand D1 at the Build & Renovation Expo from the 4 – 6 July, 2014 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
