Perth Custom Home Builder Explains The Steps in Building a Custom Home


PERTH, Western Australia March, 2013 – Perth custom home builder David Reid Homes Perth is fighting back against the unspoken rule that the construction industry should ‘band together’ and reveal as little as possible about what actually happens when building a custom home so they can charge their customers as they like.

After growing up with a builder as a father, David Reid Homes Perth Managing Director Kim March knows the ‘ins and outs’ of the construction industry but understands that most of her clients don’t. Instead of continuing the country-wide trend of mystery and hidden costs, Kim is committed to making building a custom home in Perth as transparent and easy as possible.

Kim has released an eGuide on for people wanting a custom home builder so they can fully understand the steps in building a custom home, and many other important facts they need to know when building their first home.

Kim shares an excerpt of her eGuide here:

What happens when building starts?
Stage one – whilst waiting on building licence, site sign, re peg and more.
Stage two – once the building licence has been issued and prior to slab down. Site works are performed in preparation for slab, soil may need to be taken away or brought in. Footings based on engineers drawing are created. Site toilet is delivered and site power/water are organised. Plumber pre-lays the sewage and drainage pipes.
What happens when building starts (continued)?
Stage three – concrete slab laid. Time for slab party!
Stage four - bricks, windows frames, door frames, sand and cement are delivered to site so the building of the walls can begin.
Stage five – preparation for roof, timbers delivered, carpenters, scaffold if necessary, and electrician to chase the walls in readiness for wiring. Ultimately ending in roof cover.
Stage six - plaster, air conditioning initial installation, ceilings, glazing, electrician to lay wiring, and external doors hung. Cabinets are measured and made off-site so they can be installed in stage seven. The house is locked up.
Stage seven – the tiles are laid, the plumber fits the tapware, the cabinets are installed, the house is painted, fixing carpenter to fit skirting boards, shelves are installed in cupboards and wardrobes, and the electrician will fit light fittings and switches.
Stage eight - external works such as exposed aggregate, the concrete floor (grano) in the garage and the landscaping if applicable.
Stage nine – pre handover site meeting. The Perth custom home builder and the home buyers agree what works are outstanding and need to be completed by the builder in preparation of handover.
Stage ten – handover occurs with the agreement that the works in stage nine will be completed within an agreed time frame.
