Dubbo Display Home
The ‘St Clair’ Home by David Reid Homes Dubbo
  If you’re building a custom new home and you want to make it special, this is where it starts. You can use an architect, a building designer or take your sketches to a draftsman, but talking to your builder first can save you thousands of dollars. Ask their opinion on where to go for design help for the type of house you want to build. Here at David Reid Homes, we are more than happy to suggest an architect, draftsman or building designer outside our company; but it is still a great idea to run the initial plan or sketch plan past us before you fully commit to a working plan. Small changes may need to be made that affect the appearance of the house, and there may be changes that can save you tens of thousands of dollars on building costs. We can offer you an obligation free assessment to discuss with you the difficulty of the site, best orientation, etc. A trap that many people fall into is going to an architect and designing a “dream home” that they cannot afford to build. It is heartbreaking for people to spend thousands of dollars on a plan that is basically useless to them. By working closely with the builder from the start, you can minimise this problem. Using our in-house building design service comes with practical advice and know-how, the designer and builder work closely from concept to finish, hence it being so important for us to understand your vision from the start.

Here are some things we suggest you should consider before building your home:

  • Single, double or split level?
  • How many bedrooms?
  • How important is living space?
  • What do/don’t you like about your current home?
  • How much outdoor space do you want?
  • What do you want the outside to look like?

Below is a house plan for ‘The Goulburn’, one of our All Star Range homes.
