Starting The Year With A Bang

Starting The Year With A Bang

Coffs Harbour Builder Yarren HenwoodAfter a great break camping on the Coffs Coast, builder Yarren Henwood and the team from Stroud Homes Coffs Harbour are back and into the swing of things into the office.

The year ahead looks to be jam packed with slabs going down at the start of the year, handovers and the opening of the new sales office for Pearl at Valla Estate in March.

With many years of experience in the building industry, we also asked Yarren to share with us his views on home building in 2018.


Tell me how 2018 is shaping up Stroud Homes Coffs Harbour?

We have started off the New Year with a bang, slabs are already scheduled for January and February, as well as a couple of handovers of projects that were underway at the end of 2017.


Do you have any projects in the works that you are excited about?

We are just about to complete the new sales office for an acreage estate at ‘Pearl at Valla Estate’ which is our Kentucky 260 home design.

Any changes to your business?

We have a supervisor starting with us at the end of January, this should improve our efficiency and customer service.


Why should people build with you?

We are proud of what we build and the products we use and we care about our clients and their dreams -we want the building process to be a fun and stress free for them!


Why should people build a home in your region? What does your region have going for itself?

Coffs Harbour and surrounds offers a great coastal lifestyle with access to everything from beaches to mountain rainforests.

What do you think is essential for creating a home in 2018?

The right home ultimately needs to meet a family’s lifestyle and budget, it also needs to feel open and inviting.


What is the number one question people should ask their builder?

Black and white quotesWhat extra costs might be involved throughout the building process and will there be big site costs.

People shouldn’t be afraid to walk away if the contract is different to the quote and the explanation for the price difference isn’t reasonable or warranted.


What is the number one question people should ask themselves before deciding to build?

Am I happy/comfortable with the builder.


What is the number one question people should ask themselves before choosing a home design?

Does it meet my needs, lifestyle and budget?


Are there any important dates coming up on the Stroud Homes Coffs Harbour calendar?

The ‘Pearl at Valla Estate’ sales office will be opening (scheduled to be the 10th March 2018). Although this will be the Estates sales office – one of our most popular acreage designs, the Kentucky 260 (Classic Façade) – people will be able to check out our design and quality.
