Our Process

Wisdom Homes aims to make building your own home as simple and stress-free as possible. You know all of the steps involved upfront and are given a fixed price* to avoid any nasty surprises.

* Subject to the terms and conditions set out in your tender agreement.

Wise Words on Timing

Most Wisdom Homes take 12 months from start to finish, with 6 months pre-construction and 6 months construction. Your home may take shorter or longer depending on the size and nature of the project.

Most delays occur during pre-construction due to changes requested by clients, delays in obtaining Developer Approval (if applicable), other Statutory Authority Approvals (if applicable), council objections and amendments, obtaining authority from financial institutions, finalisation of external supplier consultations and required documentation, pool works by client prior to site commencement and site preparation delays such as demolition of existing properties, engagement of hydraulic engineers, etc.

You can speed up the build of you home by choosing a standard design, minimising changes and providing information promptly.

Pre-Construction

Step 1: Choose

You choose your house and façade design, review our essentials package and choose any additional features, and consider adding a Wisdom Landscaping Package.

Step 2: Tender

We prepare a tender with a fixed price* estimate of all items and costs associated with building your home. The tender typically takes 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

Step 3: Planning

Once the tender is approved, a formal contract is prepared and signed. We then prepare and submit all plans, assessments and applications to Council, and other relevant bodies, making any amendments required until approval to proceed is achieved. Demolition of any existing properties can occur at this stage subject to approval. The planning stage takes 10 to 20 weeks to complete.

Construction

Step 4: Construct

We engage a professional team of tradespeople and suppliers who have extensive experience building Wisdom Home designs to our exacting standards. During this stage, all you need to worry about is packing up and getting ready to move into your new home!
