Pursuing the idea to build a dream home is one of home owners. After years of living in a house designed by other people, homeowners want to have their own ideas developed so that they can have the lifestyle that they wish for. So begs the question, “How can I build a dream home with confidence?”

There are many options available to the home owner and by talking to a competent builder ideas can be discussed and options developed.

Some of the initial questions that need to be answered are:

  • Am I going to renovate
  • Can I buy a block of land where I want to live
  • If I can buy land, will it be big enough and in the right area
  • What is the cost of pulling down and disposing of an old house on a desirable block of land
  • What do I want to build
  • What type of materials should I use
  • What type of building would have good resale value
  • Will my ideas be approved by council
  • How much area do I want outside
  • Do I want a pool
  • Do I want a high maintenance garden

How do you find a trustworthy builder?

The experience of a builder who has been in the industry for many years is invaluable in deciding what, how and when to build a new home.

An absolute must is to use a builder who is Registered with the Master Builders Association and a member of the Housing Industry Association. When a builder who does have these associations, the home owner will have good comeback should anything go wrong. If you want to build with confidence it is a good idea to eliminate any possible situations where you are not covered.

What is the builder going to be able to help you with?

Both prior and during a project there will be many regulations to deal with and a myriad of decisions to make.

A qualified builder can help you through the maze of decisions that you will face. They can take you step-by-step through the process of building your dream home.

Here is a list of processes that you can do on your own, in conjunction with your builder or totally hand over to the builder:

  • Budgeting
  • Finance
  • Council and other agency approvals
  • Land selection
  • Overall concept design
  • Materials choice
  • Plans creation
  • Fittings selection
  • Colour schemes
  • Interior design
  • Landscaping

By co-ordinating all these actions with an experienced builder you are eliminating the possibilities of mistakes. Mistakes that can sometimes cost thousands of dollars.

Building is an expensive business, so it pays to take all precautions possible when planning to build a new home. Taking the right steps to finding a good builder will allow you to build a dream home with confidence.
