Building your new home can be as simple as 1-2-3.

So, you’re thinking of making the move to building your first new home.

That really is great news. Now all you need to do is understand exactly what you’re getting into.

Excitement, for sure. After all, nothing beats the thought of escaping the rental trap and instead having a place you really can call home.

The odd cold sweat? Let’s be honest, you’re likely to have a few of these too. Lying awake at night worrying whether the bathroom tiles you chose really do go with the wall colour is, we hear, a very common occurrence.

But given the likelihood that you’ve never done anything remotely like this before, the one thing you’re sure to face – more than anything else – is a very steep learning curve.
And at WA Housing Centre, we’re here to help school you in everything you need to know.

Jargon begone

The first thing we’ll do is promise to talk to you in good old plain English.
For example, if talk of easements leaves you ill at ease, or crossovers gets you cross, we won’t do it.

On the contrary, instead of blinding you with building terminology, we’ll always do our best to keep things nice and simple.

Don’t be floored by floor plans

After a while, it’s fair to say, they can all start to look the same.
But getting the home design you want, one that will be perfectly suited to you and your family, really is vital.
It’s the same with how you orient it on your block, too. If you have a patio, for example, you’ll want to be sure it’s positioned to make the most of the afternoon sun and big enough for everyone to enjoy the Sunday BBQ. Just like you’ll want your home theatre to be in a nice and quiet part of the house. And when the sound of tiny feet eventually begins to patter, you’ll want their bedrooms to be in exactly the right place too.

All begins to sound a bit complicated, doesn’t it?
Relax. With over 20 years’ experience, WA Housing Centre has helped thousands of West Australians to build exactly the home of their dreams. And we’re here to do just the same for you.
