Can I Make Changes To The Plan?
When building a new home, it’s only natural that you will have questions for your builder. We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions clients have on making changes to Stroud Homes home designs and builder Travis Butler has answered them.
With Travis’ wish to bring transparency to families wanting to build their dream home and 10+ years of experience building new homes in the region, he is the perfect person to answer these questions.
Absolutely! We have no problems with people wanting to modify their design to suit their family’s needs, their block constraints and/or their budget.
It is best to speak with our New Home Sales Consultant, Jared. He will talk you through the pros and cons of your proposed changes as well as any financial implications (if any).
Our team will advise if a requested change will alter the design negatively. We will also provide other solutions to assist.
Yes! Once our architect has completed drawing up the changes. We will send them to the client to look over.
Sometimes. For example, a change that increases the overall size of the house, will generally incurs costs as there are extra materials, labour etc.
Having said that, moving a wall in order to make a room bigger (but not the overall size of the house), generally will not increase the price as the materials and labour was already included before the change was made.
We are happy to discuss this in person or over the phone as we understand it can become a little confusing.
The re-sale of your home and changes that may affect its value should always be considered. We can help with how or why some changes may affect the re-sale value of the home.
A common change is increasing ceiling heights. Higher ceilings create a larger, more grand feeling home and it something that you can NOT add to your home at a later stage.
We have a design where the kitchen pantry and linen closet are back to back. One of our clients removed the internal wall and, using the linen cupboard, turned the whole space into a large walk in pantry.
I thought this was a great change as now there is also potential to turn that pantry into a butler’s pantry later on.
