Build times

What a quick build time we have here at Stroud Homes! We build all our standard homes (up to 300 sqm) in 20 weeks.

“That’s only twenty weeks until you’re free to experiment in your dream kitchen!”  says David.

The building of your home is overseen by our registered builder, David Kirby. This means the construction of your home is in the safest hands; David is a well-respected builder with 17 years’ industry experience.

“Your future home is secure with the inclusion of the statutory home warranty insurance, along with all product and suppliers’ warranties we offer.”



The pricing for your home will be determined by our sales consultant, after an initial free site inspection. You have nothing to fear! Everything will be provided in an upfront black and white quote, clearly stating what will be included in the quoted price.

No hidden fees whatsoever, our contracts are fixed price!

During the building process, you will receive up to five inspections of the build with our building supervisor.

Pre-construction steps

There are ten major steps needed before the construction of your home can commence:

  1. The site plan – this is where your chosen home design will be positioned on your block in a plan, once done, it’s emailed to you for your approval.
  2. Surveys are next on the list – appropriate soil tests, contour surveys and certifier pre-checks will be undertaken in an estimated 10-14 days.
  3. If you’re on an acreage block, a Home Sewerage Treatment Plant (HSTP) percolation test and HSTP design must be carried out.
  4. A draftsman will complete your preliminary drawings in approximately 10 days.
  5. The next step is for you to approve and confirm your plans are accurate.
  6. Once approved, your slab design will be ordered from the engineer, with a contract signing date being organised in the next couple of weeks.
  7. On contract signing day, you will need to allow two hours for the meeting. Multiple things will need to be covered on this day: The contract signing, a 5% deposit paid (less the Preliminary fee already paid), proof of land ownership and finance approval must be provided. A security account will need to be set up if paying for your home in cash.
  8. Within seven days of the contract signing, the plans are lodged to the Council for approval.
  9. Final colour selections are then made, assisted by our Interior Designer.
  10. Finally, just waiting on the Council approval (around a month), and then we’re free to build! Our Stroud team will begin on site work within only seven days of Council Approved plans.
