Here's what's involved...

  1. Initial consultation - we will undertake a needs analysis covering your budget, desired style, and the design and functionality of your home. 

  2. Site visit – whether it’s a section you own or one you are considering buying, we will carry out a free site visit.

  3. Designing your home – we will work with you on developing a Concept Plan and quoting specification sheet designing a home exactly to your requirements.  We’ll guide you through our three ranges to choose from.

  4. Final Working Drawings and Fixed Price Contract – once you are comfortable with the original Concept Plan, Final Working Drawings and a quoting specification sheet are completed.  We can then accurately cost your new home. 

  5. Presentation - a detailed Specification book with products and fixtures in your home will be presented along with a proposal.  Your Contract and Guarantee documents will be prepared ready for signing. You will have the opportunity to consult with your solicitor.

  6. Contract signing - A meeting is held to finalise the Building Contract and Master Build Guarantee.

  7. Building consent and permits - Once the Contracts are signed, Harwood Homes will organise the relevant permits and consents required. You won’t need to do any of this yourself – we’ll save you the time and hassle by taking care of it for you.

  8. Colour consultancy - While the permits are being approved, it is a good time to meet with our Colour Consultant to talk through all those important decisions involving the look and feel of the interior and exterior of your new home.

  9. Consents are issued and house building begins - As soon as consents come through, we’ll have your materials, products and building team ready to begin your new home build.

  10. Once your project commences, our hand-picked team of specialists work alongside you through every facet of your home's design, construction and finish.  It's about total involvement regarding every detail of your home and needs.

  11. Harwood Homes stands behind its homes. Not only do we offer the Ten Year Standard Masterbuild Guarantee, our team of builders and subcontractors stand behind their workmanship and will respond to any issues arising.
