If you ever had a project in mind to work on over a long period of time – why not consider building a house? This process took us nearly 2 1/2-years from start to finish – and to date, we’re still tinkering along with other new projects on the way. We purchased land in May 2014, which was then only approved and registered by the council in June 2015. During this period, we could not commence any form of construction on the land, which gave us plenty of time to search and agree on the right builder.
Over a few months, we visited several display homes, read house building forums, blogs, home building reviews online on who we should consider, and knew that Eden Brae Homes was a reputable builder amongst the home building industry. They may not be the cheapest, but it’s also long-term quality that you want to ensure you consider in the process. There are also other reputable home builders, so do take the time researching this information when deciding who to choose. I couldn’t find much information about personal house building experiences online, so I decided to write about our Eden Brae Homes Cremorne build and review first hand.
We opted not to secure a commencement build month in advance as we’d been advised that council registration delays can occur and penalties apply from Eden Brae if your scheduled construction date is delayed.
The below outline gives you an idea of house construction / build time frames for an Eden Brae 30SQ Cremorne double-storey house. The actual build of our house took about 11-months; this is in addition to all other approvals required before commencement of construction.
