OUR PROCESS

Discover the Fun. Enjoy the Simplicity.

Building a new home should be fun and exciting.
You deserve a simple, smooth journey with no unpleasant surprises.

With Sherridon, you’ll enjoy an open and professional service from start to finish – giving you clarity and confidence every step of the way.

Stage One|Planning

Step One

NEW HOME ESTIMATE

After you’ve chosen your design, façade, inclusions and special variations, we give you an indicative cost of your new home. This cost is an estimate only because we don’t know your site costs at this stage. Your new home estimate is a free service and comes with no obligation

Step Two

NEW HOME TENDER

If you’re comfortable with the indicative cost, we’ll gather detailed site information so that we can prepare an accurate tender. Your tender will include comprehensive costs and preliminary drawings.

To prepare you tender, you will need to pay an initial deposit of $1,000 which forms part of your total contract value. If you accept the tender, you will then pay a further deposit of $2,500 which also forms part of your contract value.

Step three

NEW HOME BUILDING CONTRACT

After you accept your new home tender, your consultant will submit a request for your formal home building contract and drawings.

Once the contract is prepared, we invite you to our office to sign and pay the balance of 5% of the contract value. Upon payment, we’ll email you and your financial institution the building permit.

Step Four

STYLE & SELECTION

Now it’s time to visit the Sherridon Gallerie Selection Centre to personalise your home. You’ll be guided by an interior designer who will help you choose fittings, fixtures and finishes to match your taste and lifestyle.

Step five

APPROVALS & PERMITS

Before construction can begin, we need approximately six weeks to apply for permits and secure council approvals on your behalf.

Stage Two|BUILDING

Step Six

Base

It's time to prepare the site so that the plumbing can be laid beneath your new home. The slab is then formed and poured.

Step Seven

Frame

All hands are now on deck. Wall frames and roof trusses are erected as your new home starts to take shape.

Step Eight

Lock up

Roof coverings, brickwork and windows are constructed and installed.

Step Nine

Fixing

Your new home starts taking shape, reflecting your design and colour choices. Plasterboard to internal walls, ceilings, skirting boards, architraves, doors and stairs are all installed. Kitchen and bathroom works begin (including cabinetry) and all external cladding is completed.

Step ten

Completion

Painting, tiling, electrical and plumbing fit-offs are completed. Shower screens, mirrors, stone bench tops, sinks and basins are installed and all other external works are finished.

Step Eleven

Settlement

On settlement day your building supervisor will conduct an onsite handover inspection. After you pay the final balance, you will be presented with your keys and settlement pack.

You now own a brand new home!
