Construction On receipt of the building approval
We will commence construction ASAP. As every one of our homes is a “one off”, the construction time varies, dependent on the design and inclusions. However, a typical built time for a two-story home of between 350 to 450 square meters is approximately six to eight months.
We will keep in touch with you all the time. Your builder is there to talk to, your Interior Designer will take you on exciting shopping sprees or will invite you over to show you the newest material samples on Wholesale Designer only websites.
This building is a journey we take on together. We want you to be comfortable, getting what you expect from us. Should you wish to make any changes; a variation document will be raised and signed by both parties.
Progress payments will vary from project to project. A typical project might have the following stages: Base stage, Frame stage, Lock up stage, Fixing stage and Final claim on completion.
Taking Possession- When all work is completed you will be invited to inspect your new home with us and do a ‘walk through’. When your home has reached ‘Practical Completion’ and our office has received all outstanding monies, you will be presented with all necessary warranties, certificates and of course your personal keys.
We include a six months minor defects liability period, and six-and-a-half-year structural warranty.
The clients brief was really open, but it had to be built within a tight budget. (First home-owners)
Modern, different and contemporary. Fresh, spacious and needs to have 4 bedrooms for resale value but they would like to have some rooms multi-functional for office space or media room.
The client found it very imperative to have space, light, aspect and openness as the key features of their home. Bespoke Building Design captured this beautifully in this Design and Vivere’s expertise and attention to detail, crafted it to this extraordinary build. While the building process initially involved selecting a site with views of the sea however also providing an extensive and uninterrupted tree-scape, simplicity in design was also important.
Located beachfront, the property instantly has that open and welcoming energy. However, the garage is not getting used and sits at the very front of the property.
The client prefers the garage to be transformed into a new Master Bedroom with ensuite. Likes; light, bright and airy with a luxurious feel but keeping the cost to a certain budget.
The back veranda also requires some much-needed TLC.
Creating a functional, easy to clean, open, stunning bathroom to capture the views of the ocean with a luxurious feel to it.
The wardrobe needs to have lots of space, where everything has its place and easy to access and overlook.
