Taking the worry out of building

“We strive to take the worry out of building a new home and bring back excitement to building your new dream home,” says Jou Jong from Stroud Homes Canberra.

Building a new home is not a small decision so do your due diligence in the beginning and feel confident down the track. When choosing the right builder for you, considering asking yourself questions such as:

  • What guarantees and warranties do they offer?
  • Are they easy to talk to and accessible?
  • How do they maintain a quality build?

  • What are there reviews like and their reputation?

We find out why Stroud Homes Canberra is a top rated home builder.

Who will oversee the construction of my home? Who should I contact with any questions I may have?

At Stroud Homes Canberra, our builder, VJ, who has over 15 years’ experience building in the Canberra region in both residential and commercial projects, will be overseeing the construction of your home.

This includes managing your project and visiting your site each week (this can be several times a week depending on onsite activities) to keep a close check on site progress.

During his visits, VJ will ensure that the quality meets our standards and that standards of our certifiers and inspectors are also being met. VJ also makes sure project flow is maintained to avoid unnecessary delays for your project.

What is it that makes so many people confident to build especially with Stroud Homes?

Stroud Homes offers a Black & White fixed-price quote at contract stage where clients can be confident about the real cost to build the house they want, a price they can confidently take to the bank.

Later on, during the construction of their home, we provide our clients with regular updates so they know exactly what’s going on and when.

In addition to this, our builds include several guarantees and warranties – this all adds up to a lot of reassurance for our clients.


How and when can I make changes or upgrades before and during construction?

Ideally, to save time and additional costs for all parties, we aim to confirm as many major design decisions where possible early on in the process.

However, depending on the request, stage of construction and lead-time considerations, some changes/upgrades may still be possible.

It’s worth discussing your thoughts with your Stroud Homes team as soon as possible so we can look into the specifics for you.

How and when will the final price for my home be determined?

We are able to provide you with a final price for your new home build, specific to all characteristics of the land and its local Council or Estate requirements, once we have obtained all the necessary reports (site surveys, soil tests, engineering and energy reports etc).

We also need to complete the design/architectural plans for you. This is all part of Preliminary Agreement process.

So, at contract stage, you will have a fixed-price quote and know exactly what you’re up for to build your new home.


How often (and when) will I have access to the home during the building process?

At Stroud Homes Canberra we provide our clients with five guided tours during the various stages of the construction of your home, which are very exciting days for many of our clients.

These include tours at slab stage, frame stage and handover stage.

Aside from the guided tours, we also keep in touch with our clients on a regular basis (generally weekly) during the construction of their new home.

This is usually via a group chat app such as Voxer, which allows us to provide quick updates and news in a very convenient way, and to share exciting photos of onsite progress.
