Choosing to build rather than buy

Deciding on the perfect home design is never easy. Having flipped through countless magazines and books and visited an endless number of websites and display homes, you may be frustrated to discover that you’ve still yet to pinpoint a design that is just right for you. While some elements of a design may be just what you’re looking for, such as the lounge room, patio and so on, other areas may not be to your liking.

If this is something you can relate to, then now is the time to contemplate building instead of buying. The beginning of your incredible new home design, can spawn from something as innocent as a rough illustration on a piece of paper. It’s from here that the ideas and images of the ultimate home, develop in your mind. At Gold Coast Unique Homes, it’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to meet with you, discuss your ideas and begin to shape and evolve those illustrations into an immaculate new home design.

As seasoned veterans of the home building industry, we understand how factors such as design, land and every other component that comprises a new home, influences the total building costs and this allows us to deliver creative yet cost-efficient property designs.

The Unique Homes Home Building Process

From concept to completion

When you purchase a home built by a project builder, you typically can’t move in the moment construction is complete, as there’s invariably several important jobs that still need to be finished by you, the new homer. This can include such things as landscaping, flooring and other necessary jobs. Obtaining all building materials and arranging to have everything installed by individual tradies can be an exhausting process and push back the date of moving in. Unfortunately, it’s during this time that many buyers discover that they haven’t put aside the appropriate funds to fulfil all these post-build tasks. At Unique Homes, we offer clients the ability to take advantage of our all-inclusive home building packages, which guarantees that your new home is ready to move into, the moment construction has concluded.

During our time as a custom home builder, we’ve developed a network of trusted tradespeople, suppliers and contractors, whom we call upon to complete each of our home builds. If, however you would prefer us to use one of your own contacts to complete a particular job, then we’re only too happy to integrate them into the process. At Unique Homes, we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive list of home building services, from helping you decide on which block of land to buy, to surveying and subdividing your land, to demolishing an existing home or other obstructions (knock down rebuild) or even obtaining the right home loan.

1) Initial Consultation

During your first meeting with us, you’ll sit down and discuss your plans for a new home with our Managing Director, Jim Taylor. It’s at this time, that we touch on all of the most important issues, including your block of land, your family requirements and your budget. You’ll have an opportunity to peruse our portfolio of award winning designs and we’ll take the time to examine any images, sketches, or magazine clippings that you may have brought along with you that give us a better understanding of what you’re after.

2) Planning and Costing

During this time, we explore the range of designs that are achievable within your budget. We consider each element of the home design and provide you with an accurate cost estimate. From this, we supply you with a viable time schedule, which includes an approximate date that you can look to move into your home.

3) Dreams to Reality

It’s at this stage that our designers breathe life into your new home design, drafting a concept drawing with respect to your chosen architectural style, home requirements, type of land (narrow, sloping, waterfront) and budget. We create a design that maximises the potential of your land, being sure to take full advantage of its natural scenery, while also ensuring that its practically oriented to protect occupants from excessive heat during Queensland’s notoriously hot and humid summers.

At this time, you’re free to make as many adjustments to the concept as you desire, until you have a home design that you’re content with. Once you’ve given the go ahead to the floor and front elevation plans, we determine the total building expenses.

4) Council Approval

At this time, you’re given a detailed breakdown of all building costs for your chosen home design, along with a list of optional addons that you may wish to consider. Once you’re decisions have been finalised, we then submit the design to be approved by your local council.

5) Interior Design and Last-Minute Updates

While your design is awaiting council approval, our complimentary interior design service will assist you in selecting suitable colour schemes, building materials and décor. Our interior decorators our well aware of all the latest design trends and styles and will be able to provide you with design tips that you never would have dreamt of yourself. Their expert guidance will ensure will ensure that your new home looks as stunning on the inside as it does on the outside. At this time, you’re encouraged to make any last-minute alterations to the home design.

6) Construction

Before construction begins, we manage all pre-build tasks where required, including demolition and establish a precise building time frame that specifies all jobs that are to be completed during the build process. Our onsite manager will always be on hand to reply to any queries you may have and will schedule onsite meetings with you throughout the build, to give you a first-hand look at how your new home is coming along. Aside from this, we also remain in regular contact with you through emails and phone calls.

The construction process can take anywhere from 20 weeks to 38 weeks. However, as most of our home designs are quite large, 32 to 38 weeks is fairly typical. This includes an estimate for inclement weather because not even Gold Coast Unique Homes can control the wind and rain.
