Ben mentioned 'finishing strong' in our meeting - what does this mean?

Finishing strong, in simple terms, means bringing the job all together to create one polished and well finished home.

It means nothing has been overlooked, swept under the rug of ‘covered up’ – it means the job has been done properly and nothing is going to stand out for the wrong reasons!

How important is it to set a budget at the beginning of the building process?

It’s important to decide how much you can spend right from the start, because that will determine other important issues about your new home, such as the size, the type of materials used and the fittings you are looking to install. 

Before we start working with you on a design, it’s good to consider how much elements of your dream house will cost you, so you can be informed of the financial elements of the build.

Am I able to change my mind on various fittings after the build has started?

One of the best things about working with Cornerstone Constructions is that you will have complete visibility throughout the build, which means you will know what decisions are being made and when. 

This means that if you decided to change elements such as kitchen surfaces, plumbing or room sizes after work has started you will be able to see what can be achieved without adding in unnecessary costs or delays to construction.

As the home owner, how involved should i be in the building process?

We consider it a privilege to partner our customers when building their new home and we encourage clear and regular communication throughout the build. 

You can follow the progress of the work through our online programs, or have regular site visits to chat with Ben and his team. You get to decide how involved you will be.

how long will it take to build my new home?

The building process will take around 20 weeks once we start.

To begin with, we will need to meet with you to discuss your desired build, and get an idea of things.

Once we have drafting, architectural designs and building permits we will have the ability to start the actual ‘building’ side of the job.

From here the process will typically take around 20 weeks permitting we have a clean run of weather, issues and other factors. 

i still have questions about the building process...

Building a custom or luxury home is not always a straight-forward process.
