Frequently asked questions
Pretty much everything. All you need is to connect the services and move in with your furniture!
We have varying levels of specifications for you to choose from but they all include a complete internal fit out of floor and wall coverings, painting, kitchen and bathroom, window coverings, delivery and installation within 300km of Armidale. We really do make it easy for you. You’re also welcome to discuss special requirements that you would like us to include. We always customise to your exact needs.
Definitely not – it’s very rare that we build a standard plan – we’re always customising for our clients.
When we do a custom plan for you we use the same costing formulas to calculate the price – just as if it were a standard plan. We have designed our factory to allow us to customise everything. We will draw up your own personal design, either based on one of our designs or totally from scratch. You’re welcome to send us a ‘mud map’ of your own making.
Included in our price are the concrete piers, solid concrete block footings and tie down chains.
Depending on your soil type we can also upgrade to increased footing sizes or a steel pier system. Our team can help you with the best choice for you.
Actual building time can be as little as 11 days for a single module, but they do need to get scheduled in our system. Our factory runs like a production line. Each module only takes 11 days from starting to weld the steel chassis through to getting finished off with window coverings, cupboards and all. We can produce a fully completed module every single day! Pretty quick! You’re welcome to inspect our factory and see just how it all comes together.
Lead time depends on our current work schedule and also how long it takes for your home to be approved through Council.
Once we have the approval through Council your home is scheduled in as a job and it is around 8 to 16 weeks for delivery.
All you need to do is arrange for the connection of the services and then move in! After delivery to site, our tradesmen will install it on piers and complete any touch ups required after transport. If part of your contract, we will build verandahs, stairs or carports as required. All you need to do is arrange a plumber and electrician to connect the relevant service before you can move in.
10% deposit, 40% at lock up stage in our factory and 40% when it is ready for delivery. The final 10% is paid on completion of onsite works when you’re all happy with the job.
We don’t offer finance but we can provide a list of lenders and mortgage brokers who understand our construction methods. Just ask our sales staff for details.
17m x 5.3m. Anything larger than this will get split into two or more pieces for delivery and then it gets joined up again on site.
Sure we can. We have an experienced team that can manage this for you once the initial investment of $1800 has been paid. We lodge and manage the council application from start to finish. We will liaise, lodge and progress your application as quick as we can including doing all the required drawings and forms. Council fees and charges are not included in our fee. These vary from council to council.
6 years structural warranty plus a 1 year maintenance period.
We offer a quick, cost effective, custom made, hassle free building experience. For the last 20 years we have been finding new ways to make the whole process as EASY as we can for you. From council applications to colour choices and architectural design to site works – we make it simple and hassle free.
You sure can (but most clients find it cheaper to get us to handle it all) We certainly don’t mind leaving some of the work for you to do but our efficient manufacturing process normally works out more cost effective for us to do it all. Your choice.
We have a simple 6 step process
NO – definitely not! A kit home means YOU have to construct it YOURSELF. Our homes come to site fully complete and ready to move in.
A modular home like ours gets completely built with all finishes and fittings prior to being delivered to your site. It is then installed within a couple of days. By contrast, a kit home is just all the materials you require to build a home. You have to then build it yourself from scratch. A kit home always sounds cheap compared to a modular home but there is a big difference between a fully completed home being installed on your site within a couple of days and a pile of building materials that will take you months to build.
