Not surprisingly, this is one of the first questions most people ask when they are considering building a new home. But there are many factors that can affect the length of time it takes to build, and these can vary greatly from builder to builder.
According to industry experts, the average house takes between four and 12 months to build in Australia. However, some of the factors that may affect the length of your build include:
the size and complexity of the home design
whether it’s single or double storey
preparing the site to start building
planning and building permits
Before you choose your builder, you should discuss their build process in detail so you know what to expect. Because not all builders have the same process, it’s important to ask about things like progress payments, time frames, variations, etc.
“Our single storey homes take an average of 14 to 16 weeks to build, while our double storey designs usually take between 20 and 24 weeks,” Hallmark Homes’ Director, Anthony Gilbertson said.
“Of course it’s important to get the build completed in a timely manner, but at Hallmark, we want to ensure our clients get a quality build. So it’s vital that every step of the process is followed to a T,” he added.
