Beating overwhelm when building a custom home

Building a custom home in Melbourne used to be easy. You’d choose a builder and a design… and that was about it.

But today, you have so much more choice. In fact, you have almost infinite choice… which can be both good and bad.

For example, what sort of toilet do you want for your new home? At first this may seem like a simple decision. But when you are faced with a range of 50 or more toilets, things can get pretty confusing.

What about baths, showers, floor coverings, paint colours, light fittings, bench tops and doors. And that’s before you even start to think about kitchen appliances. (Are you starting to feel like a cup of tea and a lay down?)


designs and models change all the time.

To make things even harder, designs and models change all the time. Updated models and new colours may even be available before construction is finished.

For example, although you may have already chosen your bath, a new model may catch your eye. This may cause you to rethink your taps. And your shower head.


Making choices

Don’t worry. We spend time helping you make these choices – explaining the differences in products and putting you in touch with the best suppliers who stock all the latest designs and models. And because we work to a ‘building plan’ you’ll know when you can and can’t make product substitutions along the way.


Product substitutions

Product substitutions are a common occurrence when building your dream home. However, they can be costly if they interrupt the progress schedule. For this reason andto keep your project running as smoothly and efficiently as possible, we highly recommend making as many selections prior to contract signing as possible.

We work with you to make sure you get the exact home you want.
