Meet & greet
This is the beginning of your journey. It all starts with a conversation about what you want to achieve. Our decades of experience ensures we can build a home that is right for you.
Let’s discuss needs, wants, budget and goals for your new home.
A design consult with Homes by Howe ensures you get it right from the start. Consulting a builder before or during the design phase of your home avoids wasted time and money.
We work with selected architects and designers to assist you throughout your journey. If you’ve already lined up an architect or designer, we can work with them too. From getting development approval, to making the best architectural decisions for your site, we’re with you every step of the way. Our design consult service ensures a stress-free build from start to finish.
Our exclusive trade-base guarantees high-quality finishes throughout your new home. Whether you opt for luxury inclusions or a standard line of fixtures, our service is always second-to-none.
This is where the fun begins. You get to choose external materials, joinery, floor finishes, tiles, appliances, and plumbing fixtures.
Let’s talk price. We spend time with you to understand all contract inclusions and design requirements. This provides you with a detailed preliminary estimate, making sure your project is built on time and budget.
We appreciate that minds can change. We’re known for our open and transparent communication with our clients and it goes both ways. We often suggest improvements and tweaks to details and always welcome requests for changes during the build phase.
We deliver an Initial quote presentation. Plans are finalised, inclusions selected and quote approved. Following approval we’ll exchange contracts and undertake the Building/Development Approval (BA/DA) process.
Construction is underway! Whether we’re laying your slab, knocking your old home down, or approaching lockup, we’ll guide you through the ins and outs at every stage.
A site manager and builder is on site from start to finish. This ensures you get the highest quality of service in every detail. We develop a construction program that allows you to always stay up to date with where your build is up to. We also organise to meet you on site to discuss and review key milestones throughout the build.
Upon completion your builder and site manager will walk with you through your new home. We’ll talk you through everything you need to know.
90 Day Period: Following handover, you’ll have a 90 day period to identify and note any concerns you might have. We’ll visit you at your home to ensure that everything is meeting your expectations and resolve any defects to the highest of quality.
