OTHER COSTS TO BE CONSIDERED:

Owner / Builder erection: If you choose to erect and finish your home yourself, you will still need to budget for having your concrete pad, electrics, plumbing and drainage, etc. undertaken by contractors. These costs will vary depending upon your choice of home and its location and will be in addition to the cost of the External and Internal Kits.

Contractor erection to turn-key stage:If you decide to use a sub-contractor to erect your External Kit to final stage, you will need to allow for this cost and any other expenses that the sub contractor may charge for, e.g. travelling expenses.

Using a Registered Builder: Alternatively, you may choose to engage a Registered Builder to construct your home entirely. In order to obtain a quote, you will need to supply plans of your home and details of its location, site, internal fit-out, etc.
