HOUSE BUILDER KAIWAKA

We build houses in the Kaiwaka area

Three large questions, illustrated below, you will need to answer yourself when thinking of building a house in the Kaiwaka area

A Plan

There are a couple of ways you can go here. A good thing to remember is that both a Draftsman and an Architectural Planner make the official plans. If you do not know what you want, it may be best to sit down with an Architectural planner, or, with someone like us, a local, licenced builder. An Architectural planner will give you design ideas as well as officially create a plan. This plan can be used for builders, plumbers, electricians and engineers – as an example.

If you ask a local experienced house builder you will find that, by building houses before, can tell you what will work and what won’t. So, this is a practical approach to the planning process. If you include the builder you plan to use after the planning stage, you will avoid any unforeseen costs down the road. Simple things, like how much space to allow in a hall way, or the feel of a low or high ceiling. After you have sat with a builder you can make a basic drawing on paper. The builder can also help you with this. Then, off to a draftsman for you. A Draftsman translates what you have into what a builder needs to build. These plans can also be used for council approval for various things.

A Budget

This is the scope of the project. This effects the big questions you want answered. 2.4 meter ceiling vs 3 meter ceiling. Luxury fixings vs standard.

They all have cost impacts.

Simply by adding half a meter in ceiling height can blow out budget of your house. This happens because a standard ceiling (2.4 meters high), can be braced with your standard 4 x 2 inch wood. Having a higher ceiling will call for 6 x 2 inch – extra bracing for the extra weight.

The budget for your house build is best measured in terms of square meterage.

A good guide is this:

Budget house – $1,500 – 2,000 per square meter
Standard house – $2,000 – 2,500
Luxury house – $3,000+

A  Timeframe

As an example of the time it takes to build a house. A 200 odd square meter house will take you roughly 6 months to build from start to finish. You will need to consider this when contracting a local, Kaiwaka house builder.
