Sign Building Contract
Congratulations you now have a brand new Golden Home in the making.
Codemark working drawings
This is usually a 6 week time period. While this may appear to be a long time, remember Golden Homes fully engineer your plans. With Codemark this additional time is more than offset by a speedy delivery. Golden Homes may utilise a CodeMark certified system which is a controlled design method for creating site-specific plans and specifications.
This usually takes 4-6 weeks.
Meet with your Construction Manager, they will discuss the construction program with you, answer any questions you have during the build process.
These are laid out in your building contract and will be requested at the appropriate times.

This is the final inspection required, together with the necessary paperwork your Code of Compliance certificate is requested.
Your house is now practically complete, our construction manager will go through your home with you to ensure everything is in order.
An exciting day! Just don't forget to insure your new home... Your sales consultant and construction manager will meet you with your keys and go over the handover process. For that extra piece of mind our generous 12 month maintenance period commences.
