Garages seem to be a part of the house plan that gets less thought than all the other rooms. It shouldn’t – the garage plays a fairly big role in the family home. The size of the garage you need (the realistic size) depends on the role you want it to play and how that can be fitted into the house plan you are designing with your Custom Builder. If you build with a volume builder, the garage on the plan is the garage you get, making changes after the plans are complete is a very expensive option.
Knock-down rebuilds are happening all over the city and suburbs. Some are to build family homes and other knock-down rebuilds are to place two dwellings on the block. All around the suburbs you can see fenced blocks that are completely cleared in readiness for a rebuild. But what happens if there is something on your block that you really want to keep. This is where a Custom Builder can be your best friend. They can design your home around that feature, making sure that the home and feature complement each other.
What if I told you I could build your house with a product that supplies superior insulation from heat and the cold, noise reduction, increased fire rating and was environmentally friendly, did I get your interest? What if I added that it is beautiful, solid and comfortable to live in… No, I am not talking about rammed earth walls or mud bricks(although they qualify too) – this product is relatively light, easy to handle and quick to build with. You have probably seen it on some building sites or on television adverts. It is Hebel!
IS YOUR QUOTE TO GOOD TO BE TRUE?
A quote for your dream home will be the most revealing document you get from a prospective builder. Use it wisely to help choose your construction team – too many customers are only focused on price and have little knowledge of what their quote actually means, or what it tells them about how their build will proceed.
