Over the past few weeks we’ve been looking at building your own home from all angles, and after choosing you builder, picking designs and locations and getting your build financed, it’s time to Prestart!
But what exactly is Prestart?
Essentially, it’s the process of getting into the finer details of how your new home will look, from floor plans, tiles and paint colours to roofing, doors, counter finishes, cladding, flooring and more. It’s the all-important pre-construction phase where you really get to bring your home to life!
Building with New Generation Homes can make this process a fun and easy one too:
Once you’ve signed the build contract you’ll receive access to New Generation Homes’ Home Portal, an online space to view current updates on your home while it’s being built (slab down, roof on etc.), but also where you can begin your Prestart selections. It has an online catalogue of aspects like bathrooms, cladding, lighting and more to begin mapping out the vision of your new home. From there it’s on to the Style Studio…
New Generation Homes’ Style Studio in Myaree is basically a real-life pinterest board for your home, a place to meet with your Client Administrator to go over final floor plans and confirm all the finer details of your home. It’s full of samples to help you make the right decisions on things you’ll actually be able to see, touch and feel like:
COLORBOND® steel roofing
From there you’ll be able to customise and upgrade your inclusions like adding air conditioning, ceiling recesses and upgraded carpets. The consultants and New Generation Homes recommend putting aside an additional $5,000 for this process.
What upgrades and customisations you’ll need will also be dictated by what kind of standard inclusions your builder provides in the first place. If you’re building with New Generation Homes they offer $40K worth of inclusions, covering things like lifetime structural warranties; independent home certification; direct contact with site supervisors; and much more.
