Custom home builder Melbourne

Mark Bryson - Monday, May 23, 2016

Berstan Homes has been surprised lately at how many clients are asking for double showers to the master bedrooms.
One of the many advantages to having a custom home built is you can have the home designed the way you want it and not somebody else.
Extra size breakfast bars are also proving to be large ticket item this year.
The old favourite by far is still storage form extra cupboards to extended garage spaces creating larger storage areas.

Custom Builder Eltham

Mark Bryson - Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Late last week I met up with a couple of potential clients in Eltham, and their story was a common one.
This particular couple had been in the planning permit merry -go -round for four very frustrating years.
The couple had engaged an architectural company to design their home and apply to council for a planning permit.
What I found out was very upsetting; they not only wasted four years getting a planning permit but they have ended up with a home that is not anything like what they wanted!
The architectural company engaged did not at any point during the process ask what design or style home they wanted.
So now they are in the market canvasing different builders to get them out of this mess.
Major plan drafting changes will be required to their current plans to make the design brief given work effectively.
There are a couple of very expensive lessons that can be learnt from with this case.
Be aware of companies that don't ask you what you would like your home design to be like.
Always ask for concept drawings so you can check out the rough design before it gets too far into the drafting process.
Beware of companies that won't change their plans to suit you; after all they are working for you not you for them!
Get an idea of timing from the company before things get out of hand.
Try to find a company that will do the designs, drafting, planning, engineering and build this way you will not waste time and unnecessary expense.
Berstan Homes offer a full in house service with all the professionals required to make your dream come true without the headaches.
