A blog of advice and inspiration for creating your custom home with a local Canberra builder.
You have a project you’ve been thinking about for a while.
A renovation, a new outdoor area, building your own home – but where do you start looking?
At the end of the day, it’s all comes down to the cost of your project, right? It’s a huge investment, you want to go with the cheapest. You want to shop around and save every cent- it’s your hard-earned money, after all.
When researching potential builders for your project, make sure you consider your local builder. They have so much to offer.
Look exactly at what is included, the quality of the products used, and the personal attention your project will get.
Have you ever just walked into a house where you can tell it’s a custom-built, quality home? Your local builders have very high standards – every job is treated like it is their own home. And they have to, their livelihood depends on their professional reputation.
Because smaller builders don’t buy materials and appliances in bulk, your choices are endless! They can accommodate a lot more –particular products, appliances and finishes aren’t limited within set ‘ranges’.
These builders offer a lot more flexibility. They can easily shift things around. You can change your mind, take things out, and put more in. They are able to allocate more time to the client, allowing more communication.
Knowledge, constant and consistent supervision.
Smaller builders do the work and are on the site every day. That’s how they ensure quality and that the client is getting exactly what they want. They have a great deal of knowledge and experience. If there’s an issue, it’s addressed immediately – no back and forth between people in offices. You’ll be talking to the person doing the work – not the people overseeing the site who aren’t on the tools.
A custom home.
Custom builders projects are just that – they’re custom made for the client. Your home, renovation, or extension is designed and built for you and your family. You don’t have to ‘fit’ into a particular pre-designed house.
So make sure when thinking about your next project – contact your local small builder. You won’t be disappointed!
