Your Custom Design
Design your perfect home
Blocks, families and requirements are different for all our customers. Sometimes our designs don’t fit your block, or you know exactly what you want in your new home design.
That’s where our custom design process comes in. We design a home that suits your requirements and your budget.
The process is similar to our standard build, with a few extra steps along the way.
A Regal Homes custom design is your home, exactly how you want it.
A simple guide to our Custom Design Process
1. The Basics
To begin your custom design journey with Regal Homes, we invite you to come in and meet our friendly team. This meeting is to discuss your project ideas and where you intend to build, as well as to give you an initial idea of your project costs. Following this meeting, our estimator will organise a site visit with you to look at your building options and possible challenges that your site may present. Should you need any assistance gathering your essential information required for your design meeting, such as contour plans and site classification, we can help organise these for you.
2. Pre-design Meeting
At this early stage, you will meet with our designer who will explain the custom design process ahead of you. During this meeting you will review various aspects of your block, including solar orientation and surrounding environment, and discuss your project ideas directly with our designer.
3. Design Brief
This is an in-depth meeting with our designer to discuss every aspect of your new custom home. The designer will walk you through a detailed questionnaire, which will cover all of your living requirements, both large and small. You will explore a wide variety of aspects including how you use your living areas, preference of facade and any specific design features you desire, down to sliding versus swinging doors on your bedroom robes. Following this meeting our designer will begin work on your first design study
4. Design Presentation
This is your first exciting look at the concept plans of your new home. Our designer will walk you through the plans, discussing every feature that has been incorporated to meet your family’s needs and requests. From here, you will be able to take some time to look your plans over at home. Following this, you simply let our designer know what modifications you would like to make and they will be adjusted for you. Once you are happy with your final plans, the designer will pass them on to our estimating team.
5. Initial Proposal
With your plans finalised, it’s time for us to prepare your initial proposal. This proposal identifies every item that is necessary to build your new home. Your essential costs include the cost of your new home, generous allowances for your PC items, site costs, retaining walls, demolition costs (if applicable) and any other items required in order to comply with council or developers regulations.
Now the fun part…your selections! In this stage, we guide you through all your colour selections for your new home and assist you with any additional items that you might like to include. When you receive your revised proposal, it will have an itemised list of your ‘wishlist’ items so you can pick and choose which additions you would like included in your final proposal.
7. Building Contract
Once you are happy with your selections, we prepare a final proposal which will be used as the basis for your building contract. We spend a lot of time getting your inclusions right and gathering the reports and information we need to provide accurate costs before the contracts are signed. This ensures that you can have peace of mind knowing that all foreseeable costs will be included in your contract price.
