New House building

What are the things you need to consider when building a new house?

Choosing to build your home can become exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Let us help you make it through more conveniently with these helpful tips on what you should consider:



Everything depends on the amount of money you are willing to spend. So ensure you have a clear budget in mind. Some questions you need to consider include:

  • How much money have you saved for this project?
  • Can your budget handle it from start to finish?
  • Do you have extra funds in case of an emergency?

These are just a few of the questions you can check to evaluate if your budget is enough for building your home. However, if you don’t have a lot of money, you can adjust things according to your budget. Just make sure that you’re aware of this okay.

We advise that you talk to a registered consultant to estimate where your budget can bring you. It’ll help the available options for you.



After evaluating your budget, the next thing you need to asses is the location and land type where you’ll build your home. 

You need to check if the location suits your lifestyle. Is it the type of neighbourhood you want to live in, or is it a good place to settle down? You also need to consider things such as it’s proximity to the schools, market, hospitals, and/or shopping retails.

Aside from the location, you also to check the type of land where you plan to build your home. Is it a flat or sloping site? Are there any boulders to work on? 

These are important questions to ask because your dream house’s construction process is very much dependent on these. Need help in checking your land type? Call us on 0409 661 655.



This can either be FUN or DAUNTING, depending on your personality. But these are some of the things you need to think of:

  • Exterior and interior wall finish
  • Colours in each room
  • Type of flooring
  • Lighting fixtures
  • Furniture
  • Windows and doors
  • Size of the rooms

You may have many ideas in mind. Thus, it is best to list it down and show it to your builder. That is if your chosen builder has in-depth knowledge with design, just like Davolyn Constructions



Now, this, we can say, is the most, but not the least important thing you need to think of when building your dream house.

Choosing the builder that’ll work on your dream house must be able to guide you throughout the construction process. You should be able to openly communicate with them from start to finish.

Your builder selection is critical in the success rate of your plans. Choose a reliable and reputable builder who will not leave you in the middle of the project. They should also be open to your ideas and your budget.

Check the builder’s record, past and current client’s review, and their expertise on your project. Will they be able to handle a sloping block or are they just expert on flat sites? Your builder shouldn’t be your stressor but your trustworthy partner in building your home. Choosing the right builder is significant in the smooth process of your project.
