First Home Buyers



Everything is included in your contract price (we leave the curtains/blinds up to you). That way you don’t have to worry about going over budget, or finding extra cash towards at the end of the build, so moving in is much more enjoyable and stress-free. You’ll be provided with a full list of specifications, so you know exactly what your new home will become.


If you’re renting or selling, you need a reliable completion date to work towards. You need to know when to give your landlord notice, or when to settle if you’re selling an existing home. While there are external factors that impact on how long a build takes e.g. the weather, we provide you with an accurate time frame for completion a month out from your build. That way you can go ahead and make all the necessary arrangements you need.

Our team stay on the cusp of what is new and exciting, so you are aware of the latest products and technology. You can choose to up spec, spec down or invest more in some rooms and less in others. You can even build an Eco-home or Passive Home. The choice is entirely yours.
