So let’s paint a picture, you have just completed the purchase of a great property set in nice surroundings in a sought after part of town. You now have your dream location, but the actual building that sits on the plot you have just bought doesn’t quite fit your requirements. With this in mind you are all set to begin a project which will see you demolish the existing property and build a new property which will fit your requirements. This will be your dream house in your perfect location.
Demolishing a building may not necessarily be a cheap or inexpensive job so how are you going to get the best demolition quotes for the job and how are you going to make sure that the job is done properly.
Well, at this stage you are probably raring to go and get your project started, so the first step will be to get some demolition companies in to give you a quote for the demolition of the property.
I would suggest getting no less than three different quotes from reputable local companies.
Before having the companies in to give you your quote make sure you decide exactly what you want done. Remember that demolishing the building is only part of the job, have a good think about whether you would like them get rid of the debris and rubble once they have demolished your building. This may be something that you may want to decide to do yourself and could well be an area in which you could save yourself some money. Obviously, should you choose to go down this route then make sure you are aware of any health and safety issues concerning getting rid of the different types of materials, you may find some materials need to be cleared professionally, materials such as asbestos which can often be found in older buildings.
So with all this in mind its probably time to do a quick search on the internet via your favourite search engine and search for three or more companies to come out and give you a quote.
Be sure when looking for a suitable demolition company to choose one which is reputable and one that can provide customer testimonials or references from past customers to back them up.
As well as this, you should also look for a company that belongs to a professional body, which is associated specifically with the demolition industry. Providing you follow these rules when searching for demolition costs and quotes, you should get the job done properly and save yourself some money as well.
If you choose to go the demolition route, why not save on your demolition costs by getting free demolition quotes online.
With the excitement of starting the journey to building a kit home many people tend to forget the basics. There are five questions you must address before you get carried away browsing the numerous plan designs available on the web.
Here are the five questions you should ask yourself before selecting a home;
Number one: What type of kit will suit your block of land?
This may seem obvious, however, you’ll be surprised how many people forget to take their block of land into account when selecting their kit. You can save wasted time, money and precious space by choosing the right one.
Things you should take into account are, how big is your block of land? How much useable space do you have, many local council state you must have a given distance on either side of you house? Addressing this before looking at more plans can help you narrow your search and save on costly mistakes that you may have to fix later.
Don’t forget to also consider the slope of your block of land, the location and width of other items like driveways, trees and other items on the landscape. And then finally, the position of the morning and afternoon Sun which may dictate the position of the house if you don’t want the hot Sun possibly streaming in your bedroom when you are trying to get to sleep
Number two: What floor plan would suit your needs?
Are bedroom sizes important to you? Or an ensuite for every bedroom? Do you need that large laundry when you could use a space saving one? If you live in a hot climate would verandahs help extend shade and keep your home cool?
Take advantage of builders who offer downloadable copies of there kit home plans by printing them out for easy comparison. Kit home plans look much different on paper.
Number three: What level of involvement do you want?
Generally there are 3-stages of involvement. If you are comfortable sourcing and fitting materials yourself you can simply get a kit delivered to your site and you can build it yourself. If you prefer that a construction company take care of housing indemnity insurance and construction and public liability insurance then maybe you’d want to have it supplied and built to lock-up stage, which includes all materials needed to be able to secure your kit home. This stage typically includes a structural guarantee and a maintenance period. And third, you can opt for fully built which will include everything needed to live in straight away. For example, shelving to all cupboards and bathroom vanities, shower enclosures, tapware, oven and hotplates.
Number four: What are your building capabilities?
If you want some involvement the building of your house (first and second build stages above), find a kit home that will suits your strengths. For example, consider prefabricated panels over additional stonework or bricking if you have little experience as a brick layer. If you are a bricklayer, you could consider more complex kit home designs.
Number five: What is your budget?
Many people tend to “blow” budget because of poor planning. Your budget is more than the cost of the kit. Consider that large building companies can negotiate good prices with contractors and typically hire them for multiple contracts for a lot less than an individual can. If you require any contracted work be wary of cheap quotes, many turn out to be cheap results too. In the end, you’ll end up spending more money to get the job fixed or done right. In essence make sure you add up these additional jobs when setting your project budget, and then allow for a little extra.
