5 Design and Build Tips: The Excitement of Building your First Time Home in New Zealand

When the foundation is actually laid for a new house in Whangarei, construction can begin months in advance. Since it’s the first milestone of breaking ground on your custom home, why not toast the occasion with a quaint site picnic and a bottle of wine. The first of many meals to grace your new home.

As exciting as the custom build process can be, it can also be overwhelming because there are so many things to keep track of.

The most critical factor is working with a reputable Whangarei homebuilder you can trust.

Most homeowners are so enamored with the prospect of their house being built that they fail to see or anticipate potential construction issues. A reputable home builder can alert you to these potential problems and help you avoid them altogether. This is the value of Homeworld, the Whangarei Design and Build experts.

Having a good idea of what to expect with the construction process will help you feel more confident tackling the build. Here are some design and build tips to help ease you throughout the process – which will be invaluable if you go it alone. If you decide to use Homeworld, it is as simple as phoning your Home Consultant and asking for an update.

Don't be Afraid to Ask Around

Those who have been through the process themselves have a wealth of knowledge and experience to impart, including useful pointers such as where to find the best home fixtures and who the best local builder is to contact. As you get closer to making your dream home a reality, it can be to your advantage to talk to people who have been through the process of building a home and ask them questions as well as discuss your progress.

Set Realistic Expectations

The process of building a Whangarei house is difficult because there are many factors that must be considered, including logistics, the weather, permits, and unexpected occurrences. In addition to this, the fact that construction sites typically have a large number of skilled workers present means that there is a significant amount of daily coordination to be performed.

You will probably run into some difficulties along the way, and overcoming them will require an incredible amount of patience, but you shouldn’t let yourself become overwhelmed by the situation. If things aren’t going according to plan, you and your builder should collaborate to establish new objectives and stay on track. Open and honest communication is the key to accomplishing this goal.

Invest Considerable Time in Planning

Planning for the construction of a structure includes identifying all of the necessary steps. You should have a realistic idea of your financial resources and how much it will cost to build a new custom home at the outset of the process. The budgeting process is all about striking a balance between your desires and what you can realistically afford. Spend some time with your builder planning the essentials up front.

Make the Most Out of Shopping

Sounds fun, right? But it can really be overwhelming. You can go shopping and make your material selections while your homebuilder is busy with the preliminary work. By being aware of your options, you’ll be able to consult with your Whangarei homebuilder and benefit from their expertise. Everything from lighting fixtures and bathroom tapwares to counter tops and backsplashes must be chosen. In this way, you can plan your material purchases so that they arrive at the right time and you can avoid having your costs soar. It is in your best interest to have all of your materials and supplies ready before you begin construction.

Secure Building Consents on Time

Obtaining building consents in advance will allow you to set a target start date for your home construction project. Building permits and applications at the Council can be a daunting task for inexperienced home builders. A seasoned Masterbuilder would have no trouble obtaining the necessary permits and filling out the necessary applications from the local council. They are able to take care of this for you as part of the service they provide.

The experience of constructing a Whangarei custom home for the first time should be a rewarding and positive experience for homeowners. Your sense of accomplishment and joy will be apparent as you walk through the spaces you’ve created with your supportive homebuilder. It’s quite true though that the happiest day of your life is the day you finally get to call your new custom house your own.
