Our Pre-site Process
All our Designs are 100% custom. We don’t buy into the cookie cutter style of building – we understand that one size does not fit all. Basically, we listen to what you want and how you live to create your home design. Our satisfaction comes by making your family’s home right for YOU.
Once our concept design is complete and fits your families wants and your budget we will then proceed to obtain the local authorities planning approval (if required - note: not all projects require a planning approval).
While your home is for planning approval (if required) we will work hard in the background to confirm your fixed price lump sum contract amount so that we can sign your HIA contract together while still in planning to speed up the process.
Prestart is the fun part where we are here to assist you selecting all the colours and finishes to your home as well as its a time to make sure you understand every inch of your plans in detail. During this process variations will be raised for upgrades or changes you make and will result in a final construction set of plans to be signed off ready to be built.
Once the final construction plans have been signed off we will proceed to obtain all necessary approvals prior to starting works like your energy efficiency certificate, local authority building permit and the water corporation's approval. Once the last approval comes in we go straight to construction.
Our 2nd Storey Addition Construction Process
We take your final construction plans and build your addition off site in a large specialized factory.
No stress or mess for you during the building process! We can bring everything to life in the factory. The installation of plasterboard wall lining, wet area wall and floor tiles, cabinets, robes, shower screens and mirrors all happens in factory. This means minimal trade time required on site and in your home to get the job done.
Demolition of Existing Roof Timber
Qualified trades attend site to remove the existing roof to make way for your second storey.
Install Steel supports to Roof
Qualified trades will install and weld additional support steel beams and stirrups to the remainder of the roof frame and to the brickwork to distribute the load and weight of your new upper floor.
Install Upper Floor
Taking just one day, skilled and experienced operators will ensure the precise installation of the second story onto the existing home.
Finishing Touch and Practical Completion
Qualified finishing trades attend to complete any final building items. This might include things such as staircase installation, re-align the existing roof into the new addition, and if the pod comes in separate pieces this is when we join them together.
