Custom Home Pricing FAQs

Answers to pricing a custom built home

This can vary depending on the specifications and complexity of the project. We can give a more accurate figure once we have seen the plans and engineering in detail.

Custom built homes don’t necessarily cost more. When comparing price, it’s important to ensure you are comparing apples with apples. Check that all the specifications are exactly the same. Building a custom home is more about getting what suits your needs and requirements.

We will include everything that has been specified by you, and we can make allowances for anything that requires more time to select.

We are happy to work with you to achieve whatever request you may have.
