It’s the place where you can binge all the episodes of Stranger Things or Family Guy. Where shoes are optional and where Oodies are a socially acceptable form of clothing (We recon they should be acceptable everywhere, but that’s a blog for another day). It’s the place you make your own.
It’s home. And there’s no place like it!
When it comes to building your first home, we’re all about spending less time worrying and more time having fun with the epic homebuilding process.
So, where does it all begin?
1. Location, Location!
Where will you live? Most importantly, where do you want to live?
2.Choose a builder
Selecting a builder who is upfront, transparent, easy to deal with and makes the process super simple * we know a guy * is key.

3. Choose your home design
Annddd this is where the fun stuff really begins.
The journey to owning your first home gets super real. Dw crew, we’ll be there every second of the way to make things as easy as possible.
It all kicks off when you collab with one of our super friendly House & Land specialists. After your first one-on-one meeting where you’ll work out all the deets (how many bedrooms/bathrooms do you need? What kind of alfresco are you after? Do you need a large kitchen? Are you craving a man cave?), we’ll present you with your initial new home concept/design and/or house and land package.
You’ll then work with your House & Land Specialist to finalise a design that works for you. Once everything is red hot and good to go, we’ll do our thang behind the scenes to get your site ready for a brand-new home!
Oooo we love prestart! Our prestart consultants leeerve it too, just quietly (seriously, we’re not sure if we’ve ever met such an exciting group of gals).
This one’s a bit of a two parter, folks.
Part A – This is where you get to pick all the fittings, finishes, materials, colours and products you’ll have in your home – including everything from the colour of your door, how you want your laundry cupboard positioned, or what kind of window treatments you wish to have in your new home.
Part B – The second meeting covers all things electrical and smart wiring. Where will you place the power points throughout your home? What kind of electrical appliances do you wish to have installed, and where would you like them?
a. Once your earthworks are completed, we’ll pop down a slab. Earthworks involves getting your site ready to ensure your home is able to be built on it (and that it’s being built in the right spot, duhh). Pssst, have you ever seen a slab pour? They’re oddly satisfying. We love seeing the concrete become perfectly smooth.
b. Bricks, Doors and Window Frames
It’s bricklaying time! We get your bricks to the site and our trusty bricklayers make your house happen! After we reach Plate Height, Roof cover is the next step. Can’t have the rain splashing down on you while you sleep, right?
Oh hello, new home! At this stage, we get our tiler in and ensure all cabinets are installed. If painting is included in your build, we’ll get your home painted to perfection. Ooooo and we can’t forget! Your plumbing and electricals will be taken care of. You could say we’ll put the ‘spark’ in your home. Too far? 😉
The BESTTT part! The hard work is done, and your home is DONE! Your construction consultant will arrange a key handover with you – either on site or at our offices at FHOC HQ. We’ll hand you the keys (and a cute goodie gift)!
