Right from your initial design ideas through to handing over the keys
With our comprehensive design and build service, your dream home will become a reality.
Meet with us to discuss your design ideas, wish list and any special requirements you have. We’ll use our expertise to help with your kitchen design and electrical layout.
Choose from a range of customisable, ready to build Certified Plans, or create your own design.
All Certified Plans can be customised to suit your needs, and we will work with you to find the best design to fit your life style. To help with budgeting, we can provide you with an initial estimate for your Certified Plan. This will not be site specific and is subject to other costs like engineering fees and final working drawings. If you wish to design your own home, rather than use a Certified Plan, please contact us to discuss your options.
Next we'll proceed to the design development stage. We'll enter into a preliminary contract and conduct a site investigation, make any changes to standard plans, prepare working drawings and give a more detailed estimate.
Once you are happy with your plans and ready to build, we will enter into a building contract that best suits your project, and your plans will be submitted to council for consent.
Now we can start building! To ensure your build is completed to our high standards, we’ll complete our quality assurance checklist at every stage of your project. You’ll receive progress reports with photographs at each stage of your build and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
Once we’ve completed your build, we’ll meet with you in your new home to do a final walk through before handover. We’ll provide information and documentation to enable you to apply for code of compliance.
Fogden Builders stand behind our quality workmanship and products. After your 12 month maintenance period is up, we’ll carry out a check on your home to ensure there are no issues. We’ll also give you a written report letting you know of any maintenance that may need to be attended to.
