Frequently Asked Questions - Our Home Designs

A good house design should prioritise functionality, aesthetics, and sustainability. It should cater to your needs and the local climate, offering ample space, natural light, and an efficient layout.

When searching for a specific house design, it’s important to consider your preferences, lifestyle, and budget. Discuss your requirements with our new home consultant to find the perfect home design that suits your family’s contemporary living needs.

We offer a range of homes for home buyers interested in:

  • Acreage
  • Double Storey Home
  • Single Storey

Coastal homes face a range of elements — wind, salt spray, bushfires, wildlife — that can wreak havoc on a home. There are also specific council requirements around building along the coast that you need to adhere to.

The ideal home design for Geelong would incorporate features that respond to its coastal location and varying weather conditions. Designs that maximise natural ventilation and offer energy efficiency are a good choice in this region.

Here are some examples of our house designs that incorporate a coastal theme:

The process starts with you.

Our new home consultant will help you find the perfect floor plan to suit your lifestyle.

Your new home consultant will then review your final house plans, colours and finishes with you and answer any questions before you sign your building contract.

While you obtain formal finance approval, our team handles building permits and ordering materials for your new home.

Finally, we’ll introduce you to a site manager who will give you weekly updates on the progress of your home throughout the whole process of construction. From here, you can sit down and relax as we build your new home.

Once you’ve paid your initial deposit, our team will get started on your preliminary plans.

Then the fun starts. You’ll meet with our design consultant in a colour appointment at our Style Studio, who will guide you through internal and exterior finishes for your new home. They will also review your electrical plan and recommend functional powerpoints and light fittings placements.

A mood board is a starting point for colour selection and is a great way to get a clear idea of what tones and textures you are naturally drawn to.

Bringing your mood board to your colour appointment will help our colour consultants establish a cohesive colour flow for your new house, making your selections easier to determine.
