Building Your Dream Home: Questions to Ask In Your Initial Consult with a Bespoke Builder

Are you interested in building your dream home with a bespoke builder but not sure where to start? If so, booking an initial consultation with Pacific Blue, your trusted Sunshine Coast bespoke builder, maybe the perfect first step.

During your consultation, we will work with you to provide expertise and guidance to help make your dream home a reality. To ensure you get the most out of your consultation, it’s important to come prepared with specific questions and details about your project.

Here are some top questions to ask during your initial consultation.


Can Pacific Blue Bring My Design to Life?

It’s time to bring your dream home to life! Come to the consultation with an idea, images, notes, and specifics of what you would like your dream home to look like or include. Our building designer will work with you to develop a design brief, including the home style, features, and rooms, so make sure you’re ready to ask and answer questions about your desired design. For example, if you plan on having kids in the next five years, you might want to ask if any design options or changes would be recommended.


Does My Land Type Have Restrictions?

Discussing your land type and property foundations is essential, as this may determine how your home is built and what is possible on your lot. For instance, if you have a sloping property, you’ll want to ask about things like soil stability, drainage solutions, and the possibility of adding a pool. If you have a small and flat property, you might ask questions about making the most of the space and whether building a double-storey house is suitable.


Does My Dream Home Fit My Pricing and Budgets?

At Pacific Blue, we pride ourselves on being 100% transparent and honest with our customers about pricing. During the design process, we work closely with you to ensure that the design you’re looking at fits your budget as closely as possible. During the consultation, you might ask questions about how to make your plan more feasible or what fluctuations in cost to expect.


What Can I Expect For Time Frames?

Talking about expected time frames can help manage expectations and mitigate worries about project delays. During the consultation, you might ask if it’s possible to complete the project by a certain date or the expected time frame of a project of this size.


What Are The Next Steps?

If you’re confident that Pacific Blue can make your dream home come true, you might ask about the next steps in the process. This could include discussing designs and expectations, as well as contracts, pre-construction selections, and construction.

At Pacific Blue, we are dedicated to making your dream home a reality. Book a complimentary consultation with our experienced team today and experience the bespoke builder difference.
