Are you afraid that your new home will take too long to build?


We really like to provide anyone looking to build with as much information as possible and I have some information that I know you are going to love. First of all, If you are concerned that it is going to take much longer than planned to build your new home, then I wanted to tell you about the ONE critical question you must ask your builder............

To explain, consider these facts… Did you know, the average house has more than… 4,000 blocks 1,000 metres of electrical cabling... and..12,000 nails Not only that, each building activity is carried out by a different tradesman. The builder has to co-ordinate the…

  • Blocklayer

  • Roofer

  • Plumber

  • Electrician

  • Kitchen and

  • Bathroom manufacturer

  • Tiler

  • Plasterer

  • Plumber

  • Concreter

  • And more ..........

Throw into the mix uncertainty due to weather… and you can understand… Building A House Is Complicated! There are so many areas where things can go wrong – run over time and over budget. So, when your builder says: “No problem” or “Too easy” or “She’ll be right!”…and when he seems to just pull facts and figures out of his head… ask this question… Can I See Your Plan Please? Not the house plan. The activity plan your builder will use to make sure everything gets done in an organised way. If your builder doesn’t have a plan, chances are “she will not be alright!” Remember what Confucius said: “A man who does not plan long ahead will find trouble at his door.” Benjamin Franklin put it this way: “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” Don’t take the risk of trusting what your builder says off the top of his head. Ask to see his plan. The bottom line is building a home is a complex process. Your builder needs a plan. And you need to make the right choices along the way. Without the right guidance, it can become overwhelming.

So, to save your self the heartache of a horrible building experience, ask the Questions......

"Can I see your plan?" If you builder says NO, chances are, you're not speaking with the professional builder that you need for your new home.
