Do you have your own question?

Whether our clients are first home buyers, investors or are looking to move up or downsize we will custom design a home to suit our Client’s brief, the site conditions, aspect and of course the budget. Why settle for an ‘off the shelf’ design when we can customise a home to suit your needs.

Do you have your own question?

A typical project builder will have a library of standard designs with alternative facades and standardised upgrades. Most project builders will not allow their clients to customise the standard designs or if they will allow design variations the design variation policy can be very restrictive and expensive.

A typical project builder will also have standardised inclusion and features package that cannot be varied or altered unless a client accepts a standardised upgrade package.

Do you have your own question?

Yes we do (see our standard inclusions). Our standard inclusions and features offer products and finishes that have been proven over time to be quality and stand the test of time.

Do you have your own question?

Site costs are works that relate to the site or property conditions. Site costs can vary depending on the type of soil, the slope on your block and location of existing services such as sewer, electricity, natural gas and water. It is very difficult to standardise site costs when there can be so many variables.

Elmwood Homes can determine what the sites costs will be at the time of the tender being be prepared.

Do you have your own question?

The First Home Owner Grant is a government scheme that was introduced in 2000 to offset the effect of Goods and Services Tax (GST) on buying or building a home. It's a one-off payment for eligible first home buyers who purchase or build a residential property to live in.
