For many, the potential for cost savings is the main drawcard. Explains Gerard, “Prices can be given for a complete turnkey product, although it’s very important to know what the specific inclusions and exclusions are to avoid any surprise costs throughout the build.”
A home might typically come with cladding, internal linings and insulation to the roof, ceilings, walls and floor, plumbing, electrical, tiling, floor coverings, bathrooms, a kitchen, curtains/blinds, fittings and the painting completed. Some of these things might come as standard, others might be optional extras. The final cost will also include delivery, installation and, if you want, foundations. “Sometimes clients wish to complete their own painting or landscaping to savey money,” says Gerard.
