How We Help You Get The House You Really Want
Got questions? Or just want to see what other people have been asking? Here are answers to common questions we’ve been asked over the past 10 years. If your question is not covered here or you want more specific information for your unique situation, get in touch by phone or email – we’d love to help you.
I don’t think I can afford a custom build.
It’s true – custom homes from other builders can be expensive. But at Edward Brewer Custom Homes you can get a fully custom home for around the same price as a stock-standard project built home. That’s because our team specialises in showing you ways to save money on your design so you can put that money into some of the ‘wish-list’ features you’ve always wanted.
For example, there are many ways to achieve the same affect. With our experience in both designing and building, and our up-to-date knowledge about the latest building products, we can often save you thousands whilst achieving the same functional and aesthetic result. Those savings can be applied to giving you a higher ceiling, wider hallways, a bigger master bedroom and ensuite, a dream entertainers kitchen, or anything else that you would like in your home. Schedule a Free Design Session & Quote and start to the process of bringing your dream home to life.
Isn’t it risky building with a small builder? What happens if you go into receivership?
We have built more than 150 homes over the past 10 years under the Edward Brewer Custom Homes brand and have documented plans for the next 10 years of successful operation. For your extra peace of mind, we hold Housing Indemnity Insurance to protects owners against financial loss if a builder cannot complete residential work because of death, disappearance, or insolvency.
As a small builder, are you as organised and well-structured as the project builders?
We might be small, but our team has combined experience of over 70 years in the building industry. And unlike large project builders that churn out hundreds of homes a year, treat customers more like numbers than valuable clients, and juggle as many as 1,000 contractors, our team is stable and reliable. In fact many of our tradespeople have been with us since the beginning. We are so confident in our systems we guarantee your home will be completed on time and on budget. We take great pride in every Edward Brewer Home we build. And when we finish your home, we’ll be proud of it too. And so will you.
Do you have any display homes?
No. Display homes often misrepresent what you are really getting in a home. You can read about common display home tricks here [link to display homes]. Instead, we show you through real time construction sites, and real homes built for real people. You can even talk with the owners and hear about their experiences with us.
As you can imagine, display homes are expensive. While other builders invest millions of dollars in misleading display homes, we prefer to show you the real thing and pass the savings directly to you so you can get a fully customised home for less.
We really don’t want to be rushed, and we don’t want any surprises!
Then it’s best to stay away stay from the project builders because their business model relies on fast volume turnover. On the other hand, we promise to give you personal service, care, and attention. We won’t rush you through the process. On the contrary we will take time to explain all aspects of the building process, timeframes, costs and exactly how to avoid surprises.
I’m not sure I can take time off work to make it to your office in office hours.
That’s fine. Part of being a custom builder means flexibility. Just let us know when you can make it, and we’ll try and work around you.
We have a pretty tight budget, can you still help us?
Sure can. We can build homes of all sizes and specifications. In more than 10 years of building we’ve never met someone we couldn’t help. Get in touch for a Free Design Session & Quote. You may be pleasantly surprised.
I have a strange shaped block. Is that something you can help with?
Absolutely. We love a challenge. We design homes for blocks that are rejected by the project industry all the time. Get in touch for a Free Design Session & Quote and we’ll help you design something amazing for your block.
We know what we want, but don’t want to pay for an architect to draw it for us.
We understand. Our in-house design team will help you develop an initial design – no obligation, no cost. It begins with a Free Design Session & Quote – book your session today.
