IT'S SEAMLESS & FUN
Our building hub is designed for you to keep up to date on every process of creating your dream home and lifestyle.
At Yatta, we make the building process fun and seamless. It is an exciting time for you and us!
From selection of land to design and watching the build take place through to handover, we will be with you every step of the way. The more knowledge you have, the more you will enjoy the process. Here you will find the answers you need. We are also a phone call away.
In your meeting with us, we’ll discuss your finance options and establish a budget that suits you and your lifestyle. We work with some of the most experienced construction loan experts in the industry. Alternatively, you may have your own broker or bank, that’s totally fine with us – we’ll work closely with them to see your build come to life. We will discuss the building process, design options, deposits, and any exclusive packages we might be able to offer you, next steps and what you might need to prepare for. Finally, we’ll prepare some preliminary paperwork.
The pre-construction phase takes up to approximately 8 weeks. At this stage, most of the scope is done behind the scenes. Our Admin team will order your contour site survey and the engineers will undertake a site inspection report (once your block is titled), as well as double checking the building plans and specifications. The Yatta team will begin to prepare your building contracts and your house sketch is turned into working drawings. All of this documentation is needed for shire approvals, developer approvals, energy certification, structural engineers certification, bushfire assessment and of course finance approvals. Once your finance has been approved you will settle on your block, typically within 21 days. The block is now all yours!
Time to get excited because it’s pre-start time! We won’t rush you during this process. We understand this is to be your perfect home. Our team will guide, advise you and listen to you during this phase. You can mark up your electrical plans and make all those key decisions on the finishes you desire. We’ll have samples of selections available at your meetings with us. By this stage, the building permit has been received and finance and settlement are confirmed.
Following this, the contract administrator will complete a final file check and then pass your build onto our construction team. Schedules will take place. Materials are ordered and site supervisors are appointed.
Your dream home has been designed, you know what’s included and your finishes have been chosen. Construction is about to begin. The average build time for a single storey home is currently 12 months (for a typical single storey home). Unlike most builders, we don’t pass the buck at this point. We are still with you 100% throughout the construction of your new home. Any questions can be directed to us.
It doesn’t stop there though! You have a 6 month maintenance warranty and a transferrable 25 year structural guarantee through our dedicated choice of builder.
As the name suggests, this is simply when the foundation is laid. It includes measuring out the design on the site, pouring the footings, under slab drainage, moisture barrier and special mesh for termite protection. Allow 1-2 weeks.
This stage is all about erecting the frame for your new home and ensuring all metal supporting angles for windows and external doors are in place for the construction of all major walls. Allow 4-8 weeks.
This includes the installation of your internal and external support structure, the roof frame and sheeting, gutters and insulation. Allow 3-4 weeks.
It’s at this point where you can literally start “locking up” the property because your windows, doors and remaining walls will be installed. It’s also safe for plumbers, electricians, cabinet makers and other tradesman to begin fitting out the property. Allow 10-12 weeks.
This is basically where all painting, installations and detailing have been completed and you’re effectively ready to move in. Allow 8-10 weeks.
The handover marks the end of your home building journey. Collect your keys and celebrate this momentous event in your life.
We did it!
