Home Building Process

Building your own home is certainly a challenge, but the reward is the opportunity to create a home just the way you’ve always wanted. Each build is unique, and your local Latitude home builder will tailor the approach to your lifestyle, needs and budget. But there are some key steps that are common to every new home build.

Guide to the Building Process

Step 1 - Initial conversation

Every project starts with a conversation, and there will be lots of them to ensure we get to know who you are and what your visions are for your new home.

Although you can find useful resources on our website, nothing will be as helpful as speaking with our New Home Consultants to discuss your needs and wants for yourself and your family.

The second step will be conducting a free on site visit with you. This is really important so we can assess the sun orientation, if your site is level or sloping and any other features that we can take advantage of to ensure you get the best plan design for your piece of paradise.

We can work with your plans or we have a large range of pre designed homes that can be altered to suit to your site.

To get things started we ask for an initial Plan Deposit starting from $5000 which includes a site plan, floor and elevations plan.

Soil tests, topographical surveys and engineering may be required which will incur further costs, (dependent on location). This will be explained to you and quoted upfront as required.
