Building Your Own Home, What You Need To Know

slider01 600x300

For most of us, building your own home on your own land that you sourced is the ultimate achievement. Building your own home has many advantages but mainly you can design a home that is perfect for you and your family.

However, building a house from scratch can seem like a daunting task so it is imperative that you consult a professional and experienced builder to assist you through all of the specific stages.

The Australian dream is to create a beautiful home that will last through the years. For over a decade, Xclusive Construction has been trusted with creating bespoke high quality homes and renovations in and around Canberra that stand out from all the rest.

There are many issues to consider when buying land and building a house such as:

  • Land boundaries and restrictions
  • Building boundaries and zoning
  • Covenants
  • Solictors
  • Insurance issues
  • Dealing with local council
  • Reports, planning and drawings
  • Connecting essential utility services such as water, gas, electricity, phone and sewerage lines
  • Legal fees
  • Land rates/taxes
  • Mortgages
  • and others, there is a lot to consider.

This is where having a reputable and experienced developer like Xclusive Construction on hand to help will pay dividends. We have been through this process many times and can help and offer advise at every stage to ensure that you thoroughly understand the development and realise the benefit of your investment.

It is important to know that when building a house and buying land separately there are usually two separate contracts, one with your builder who is building the house and one for the purchase of the land. Many customers prefer to choose a house and land package as then there will be only one contract which means less headache for you.

Your building contract will include the architectural plans of the house, the specifications which describe the quality of the building and the building agreement. Xclusive Construction place the highest importance on these documents to ensure a satisfactory, on-time and on-budget completion of your new home.

The Ultimate Entertainment Area

In Australia nothing compares to an evening outdoors with family and friends enjoying a few drinks and some good food on a lovely summer night. As Australian's want to spend more and more time 'living outdoors', a modern outdoor entertainment area is a must these days and will not only add value to your property but will also be the perfect place to host your family gatherings. 

Today there are many options available to you to create a truly wonderful outdoor space. The perfect entertaining area effectively creates a multi-functional room outside. The idea is to design a usable space that can shade you from the harsh Aussie sun and the winters rain so you can spend more time outside in all weather. With modern down lighting and an effective heating system you can be out there all night and never notice the cold. Likewise in the height of summer you can be outdoors all day with the kids and friends and avoid getting burnt.

At Xclusive Construction, we achieve sensational results with each building project we tackle and bring our customer’s visions to life using top tier skills, materials and project management.

Similarly, when entertaining, you need to be entertained! As technology has advanced so much in recent years we are now seeing greater integration of your home entertainment systems with your outdoor space. For example you can now connect your built-in outdoor speakers to your home music system to control your music from your phone or tablet. And why not watch your favourite TV, films or sport outdoors? Get your mates round with a couple of cold beers and watch the footy on a waterproof outdoor cinema screen again all controlled from your phone or tablet.

Of course no Australian entertainment area would be complete without the obligatory state-of-the-art BBQ. We can create the perfect space for your BBQ equipment or we can even build you a bespoke built-in BBQ or outdoor kitchen area. The sky's the limit.

Build It Green

In this day and age, all modern Australian seem to want to be 'Eco-Friendly'. We understand that it is important to look after future generations and the world we leave to them but it is strange to think that not so long ago all residential building was green. During medieval times people lived in houses made of mud and straw and even today nomadic Mongolians take their home with them on horseback when they want to move. It was the Industrial Revolution that made it easy for builders to get hold of non-green materials like such as iron and steel from distant countries by boat and train. Moving forward to today we have realised that there is a cost to doing this and that is global warming.

Nowadays, more and more home owners and buyers are demanding eco friendly homes, and developers are looking for increasingly sustainable ways to provide them. Modern advances in green building technologies are making carbon-neutral homes a reality and consequently saving the planet and saving home owners money in utility bills.

Each new build home we create or home improvement that we make adds to our impressive portfolio, and serves as a testament to the ideals of quality and attention to detail we adhere to.

Green building solutions can include.

  • Grey water systems and reusing rainwater
  • Solar hot water
  • Energy efficient windows and double glazing which help to keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter
  • Ground-sourced heat pumps and solar heated pools
  • Better Insulation
  • Solar power
  • Green, sustainable building materials
  • Energy efficient air conditioners
  • Energy efficient lighting
  • Green appliances

At Xclusive Construction we understand the needs of the modern buyer and we have a vast amount of experience installing green and eco-friendly systems for our customers. If you are interested in building an eco-friendly home, we only use the very latest technology and tried and tested techniques of building to build the very best homes in Canberra.
