Flexibility With Your New Custom Home
One of the main reasons people choose a custom home builder is flexibility. As a client, you get more say from the initial design stages, through to what’s included in your specification as well as the ability to make certain changes during construction. However, with flexibility, you also need order and to follow the process. Here’s why …
You’re at an event, say a party or kids sports day, and they call on people who have a special talent to come and show it to the crowd. You think to yourself …. hey, I’m flexible. I used to be able to do the splits when I was younger. I should do that! So, without any warm up or preparation, down you go, snap goes the hamstring and chaos ensues! Being flexible wasn’t the issue. It’s that you tried to do something without being prepared and without following a process.
The same happens when you are working with a custom builder. We have processes in place to make sure that we can be flexible without causing chaos. By following those processes, we can ensure that the documentation is correct, the relevant people know of the changes, and the end result is what you hoped for. Without these processes, it’s likely that we have different suppliers and trades working from different documents, changes get missed and confusion reigns on site. This can cause delays in your new home build and possibly end up costing more in the long run.
Working with your builders processes ensures that any flexibility in your contract can be accommodated in a way that delivers the best outcomes.
