Building custom built homes in Sydney
Before going thoroughly into custom homes in Sydney it is assumed that a new dwelling is built on a cleared block of land either as a house on an infill block in the built up urban fabric, or as a house on a newly subdivided block, farmlet or rural holding.
There are many ways a family can have a custom house in Sydney built on their block of land. An architect can be employed to prepare plans, call tenders, and administer the contract at one end. Or at the other end it can be in the complete hands of the builder or owner builder.
The family that chooses to become owner builders should have weighed up the likely longer construction time that it will take as an owner builder, as well as the complete erosion of leisure time before being blinded by the potential differences in costs.
The build category really has a further two sub-groups of factors underlying it. The first is the custom design category which includes the architect designed and owner designed houses. The second is the pre-designed house which includes all project and kit homes.
Owner builders or contracted builders can either have a custom designed house, designed by an architect or themselves, or a pre-designed house if they purchase a kit home as the basis of their owner builder activity.
There are also the option to buy an existing built house or extend a already development homes. The dilemma to buy, build or extend cannot be easily answered. Each project has it’s own set of costs and benefits, and these must be equated to the requirements of the family. All custom homes are compromises and a family should attempt to find, build, or extend a house that has the least number of compromises.
The owner has the option, when they build or extend, of making adaptions to homes as they go to tune the compromises out of the project. Therefore they are most likely to get a home closely tailored to their requirements that they have not created a Sydney house that no other family would ever buy in the future.
