Value for money inclusions others regard as upgrades

Our aim is to make building your new home as stress-free as possible. We are flexible with our standard inclusions and can make changes to our standard plans to suit you, or we can custom-design your new home.

Please contact us if you would like a complete list of standard specifications or more information.

Preliminaries

We provide all working drawings, specifications, contracts, the building permit, construction insurance and domestic builders insurance, giving you peace of mind knowing the details are taken care of.

Colour selection

We provide the service of a qualified interior designer to all our clients looking for impressive interior spaces that relate to their taste, culture and lifestyle. The prospect of building a new home brings a lot of promises as well as challenges and we guide you in every step to make sure you get access to options and information to make appropriate decisions.

We organise a five-hour consultation session with our interior designer in our showroom to help you make the best choices with regard to colours and all other aspects that would add a personal touch to the interior spaces.
