We offer to supply (i) fabricated, delivered and installed, or (ii) supply only.
Initial (PPA commitment)
After providing a sales quotation and prior to you fully committing to a contract we have an interim, Pre-Purchase Agreement (PPA), process where an upfront fee of $2,500 secures everything necessary, such as preparation of plans , investigation of shire and bushfire protection requirements, site review and so on, to finalise the fixed price building contract.
Fabricate, deliver and install
We usually supply the house delivered and installed utilising our own equipment and personnel, guaranteeing a seamless process between construction and delivery. In such a case, home building legislation dictates that we don’t start building the house until after the issue of a building licence, that typically doesn’t issue for 2-4 months from initial contract (PPA) signature.
Construction time ready for transport is generally around 12 weeks from local authority approvals, with delivery generally within 1-2 weeks from completion. As a guide, we generally hand over the houses, installed, in around 6-8 months from the initial PPA commitment.
Fabricate only - For People in a Hurry
If we sell the house as "goods" (i.e. not installed) the house can be constructed in parallel with the local authority approval process. We can then prepare a separate delivery and installation contract.
Site works and connection of services
Our designs built on concrete floors require a compacted level pad for installation, whereas steel based houses can be installed on less than level ground (generally up to +/- 300 mm at no charge).
Generally our prices exclude installation and/or connection of site services (electricity, water, waste) although we can arrange of required (generally however it makes no cost sense for us to travel to remote locations to "let the plumber in").
The construction process
We detail the process up front and keep you informed throughout the approvals and construction process, including providing photographs along the way and welcoming yard visits whilst construction progresses.
We deliver and install the fully completed house using
our own equipment.
