OUR FEATURED ACREAGE HOME DESIGNS
Naturally, designing a home takes time, and this needs to occur before any ground can be broken. The complexity of your design and the number of times you need to go back and forth with an architect can certainly slow down the process.
One way to speed up this part of the process is by choosing ready-made plans from your builder. Often, they will have numerous house plans to choose from, and they’ve more than likely built them before. That means everything moves a little faster. You can certainly request small changes to a ready-made house design, but even that will generally be quicker than designing from scratch.
Obviously, before you even get to the point of enlisting a builder and commencing house plans, you need to find land. Finding land to build on in South East Queensland can take some time. There is plenty of land available, but you need the plot that’s right for you. Even then, when you find the perfect piece of land, you need to go through the process of purchasing it, which can take longer if it goes to auction, for example.
Why is it important to have a clear timeframe
Firstly, as humans, we want everything straight away. Patience isn’t a trait that many of us have, so naturally, we want to move into our new homes as quickly as possible. But the main reason this is important is simply in planning your life.
If you’re renting, staying with family, or if you need to sell your existing home, you need some clarity. Getting into your home faster often means less rent, less inconvenience, no property storage costs and a smoother transition for everybody concerned.
So, while you can expect a new home to take up to 12 months to build, getting a clear timeframe from your builder is always the smartest way to go.
