When starting out on a new build project, it is important to ask the right questions. But as a new-comer to the world of home building, what are the right questions?

The key components that often trip up a new build seem to be similar regardless of the owner’s individual requirements. We’ve covered a couple of these below, to help you with your project home build.

Why should I build with you?

This initial question is a very important one to ask and the answer will really depend on your personal circumstances. What is important to you when looking for a building partner? Is it price alone? Quality? Speed? Evaluating exactly what you are looking for in a home, and subsequently your project builder, is the cornerstone to facilitating a positive building experience. Beechwood Homes endeavour to meet the unique needs of all their clients.

Can you build to suit my block?

Block size, slope and location can put additional demands on building requirements. It is really important to discuss any concerns you have about your block of land with your builder to ensure you do not stumble across any unforeseen costs during the construction process.

What are the inclusions for my home design’s package?

Thoroughly understanding exactly what comes as part of your home’s building package avoids disappointment when it comes to your finished product. So many people assume that certain things will be included as a standard feature and are really upset when they check their contract too late. If you have any doubts, always clarify with your builder as to exactly what comes with your home.

What if I want to change one of your standard designs?

Although modern home designs are usually carefully considered to account for flow, function and appeal, sometimes they may just require a few little changes. Always check with your builder if alterations are allowed and at exactly which point they need to be made. Deadlines for alterations to design are usually very early in the construction process so that the builder can provide the best possible finished product.

What is expected of me during the construction process? How will I know when to do these things?

Understanding your role as the home owner in the construction process can help to ensure that it runs smoothly towards a successful outcome. It is important to always keep an open channel of communication with your project builder to avoid delays, conflicts and disappointments.

At Beechwood Homes, we understand that building a new home can be a confusing and daunting process. That’s why we are happy to advise and guide you through each stage of the construction process

The decision to embark on your own new home journey is a really exciting one. But what happens after you have made that decision? Where do you start?

Choosing to build with Beechwood Homes as your builder is a very personal decision but it can be a highly efficient and less stressful way to build your new home. During the construction process, the complexity of contracts, tenders and regulatory requirements are facilitated predominantly by the team at Beechwood Homes. We can help to guide you through the different stages of construction, acting as your building partner the whole way through.

Understanding the construction process is important in order to know where to start, and how to get into your new home quickly and successfully.

The Beechwood Construction Process

  1. Finding your land

    Beechwood Homes are happy to work closely with you whether you have bought your block, are still looking for it, or have decided to go with one of our House and Land options. Finding the perfect location for your new family home is important to the success of the overall build. Beechwood can assist you with this process and expertly advise on land features and availability. Remember that a cheaper block to purchase may be a more expensive block to build on.

  2. Visiting a display home and a personal consultation

    After making the decision to build a new home, it is important to come and see our homes at one of Beechwood’s display home locations. Here you can speak to our staff and organise your personal consultation.

    During your personal consultation, all stages of the process and your expected requirements will be clearly explained so you will know exactly what is happening, and what is coming up next.

  3. Choosing your new home

    After carefully considering your own personal needs and wants, it is time to decide on exactly what you would like your new home to be in terms of design, aesthetics and colours.

    Once you have decided on your new home’s design and character, our team will put together a formal proposal so all details can be clearly outlined.

  4. Signing the contract

    Your acceptance of the contract gives us the go ahead to start building your new home. There is a small window of opportunity at this point to make changes to your contract but be sure to do this quickly as further charges will be incurred and delays may result for alterations made after this time.

  5. Commencement of construction

    Being able to see your home evolve is a really exciting part of the Beechwood construction process. Beechwood endeavours to keep you updated on the progress of your home throughout construction.

  6. Handover processes

    Before you can begin enjoying your new home, we need to finalise everything in what we call a “handover”. During this process it is important to inspect your home and give us relevant feedback. Once everyone is happy, you can move in your new home!

  7. Build a new life with your family

The best part of the construction process is the finished product. Sit back and relax in your new family home that has been purpose-built to enhance the quality of your lifestyle.

Choosing Beechwood Homes to be your project building partner is simple. Just visit one of our display homes or call us on 02 9616 0999 to chat to one of our friendly consultants.

It is an undisputed fact that Beechwood Homes have been through some tumultuous times. This July 29 marked the 7 year anniversary of the current management taking over Beechwood. It is not our nature to dwell to past happenings, this is the opportunity to acknowledge that it has taken a lot of hard work and some patience, but we have re-emerged as a stronger, driven and more reliable building company across Sydney and NSW.

It is true that when we took control of Beechwood Homes back in 2008, we inherited a long list of issues to work through. It has been our solid commitment to our clients that has seen us honour existing contracts and strongly push ahead with new and exciting ventures.

In the 7 years since taking on Beechwood Homes, we have built over 3,500 affordable family homes. We have built 3,500 homes that families will relax in, enjoy their time together in, and will build their lives in.

Beechwood Homes have been instrumental in the development of not only metropolitan estates but also regional building centres in NSW. We have now expanded our building locations to areas such as the South Coast, the Central West, and as far North as Port Macquarie just to mention a few.

By making our family homes and services available to people in these regional areas, we are creating an opportunity for affordable housing and lifestyles for those who may not otherwise be able to get into the market. We are opening up Australia.
