With so much on the news, and all feeling the effects in our everyday life with inflation, its a great discussion point to talk about:
Inflation is what we are facing right now in 2023, and we all need to be equipped and educated in regard to our money options. To make informed choices and to work closely with a professional builder to protect you and make informed transparent decisions, is the ultimate desire to build, on budget, your dream project.
Inflation is a reality that affects every aspect of our lives, including the cost of building a home. There have been rising prices for materials and labour, and it can make it challenging for you to get the home you want within your budget.
What can you do?
You have choices!
And you have control to choose a custom builder that helps you.
Choosing a custom builder is a great option to help navigate these challenges, and to get it costed right from the outset, in choosing a Design and Construct Custom building company.
Custom builders have a competitive edge when it comes to dealing with inflation. They have longstanding relationships with their suppliers and can leverage their buying power to negotiate better prices for materials.
This means that clients, like you, can get the highest quality materials for your home while still staying within your budget.
Design and Construct Custom Builders work with you from the very beginning at the Design Stage.
This means, your builder is working closely with the draftsman and designer to make sure they are educated on the exact costs and protect you the client, with keeping to your budget.
We have seen here in the past when people have come in from an independent architect or draftsman who designed something really beautiful for the client. We have seen the heartache on clients faces when we have given them the true costs of the project, only for the client to see that its way out of their budget, and can’t be built.
There were no considerations on costs because it’s actually not their job to think about that. Their job description is to purely draw what the client wants. That’s why you want to engage with a builder in the design stage to make sure the design matches your budget.
In the Design stage and working with a Professional Designer, you also can come up with solutions for your project of cost-effectiveness. There are many alternatives that can be decided upon to still achieve your original brief.
This protects you

Any additional costs will all be with you if you choose to add or make variations on the way. This is all in your control and choice, and you want to have full transparency on this.
