Your Complete Building Process with High Country Carpentry

STEP 1 Let’s Chat and Meet Up!

Let’s see how we can help you with your building needs! After your initial contact, Lain will personally set up a meeting with you to discuss your project and catch up onsite. This will enable us to look at your project and you can show us your ideas, sketches etc, so that we can help you create your dream home exactly how you want it.

STEP 2 Plans and Preliminary Works

You may already have plans arranged. If not, we have our own range of in-house concept plans for your viewing pleasure! We can recommend you one of our reputable and trusted Architects, and together we will work as a team to come up with a solution that suits your needs and budget.

Once the concept plan is complete, we will be able to provide you with an initial cost estimate. Once you have accepted this estimate, the Architect will complete the working drawings and lodge your plans with the Local Authorities.

STEP 3 Final Quote

After receiving the final consented plans, we will work with our trusted Sub Contractors, Suppliers and Quantity Surveyor to provide you with a full Fixed Price Contract. This will give you the satisfaction of a completely priced build.

Lain will present this to you in person, explaining every part in detail and answering any questions you may have. We charge a fee for our professional services to get to this stage. In the event that you choose us as your builder, we will credit this towards the cost of your building project.

STEP 4 Signing of Paperwork

Once you are satisfied with our quote, we will provide you with the following documents for signing:

  • Registered Master Builders Full Building Contract
  • Application for your Master Build 10 Year Guarantee

STEP 5 Construction Period

Once your project is underway, we will meet onsite to introduce you to your High Country Carpentry Site Foreman and Building Team. During construction, we will schedule regular onsite meetings with you to discuss progress.

We will liaise with the Architect, Local Authorities, Professional Services, Sub Contractors and Suppliers, to provide you with regular updates about what is happening onsite. We will have everything sorted to deliver your project on time and on budget.

STEP 6 Project Completion and Sign Off

We will arrange the final inspection from the Local Authorities as well as all required documentation to submit for the Code of Compliance Certificate. We will walk you through and around your new home to make sure you are 100% satisfied and happy, and arrange for a professional clean, top to bottom.

Your home is now yours to enjoy, and we will hand you the keys and our gift to say a huge thank you! We know you had a choice in builders and we are thrilled you chose us!
