Frequently Asked Questions

A bespoke/custom house is one that does not adhere to the usual norms. Bespoke homes are not like other houses, which tend to mimic each other. It is a custom house that combines the client’s desires with the skills and expertise of the architect. In other words, it is designed specifically with you in mind.
The primary benefit of a custom house is that you are actively involved in the process of building your dream home. There is no reason to conform to the usual house structure. If you are going to be living in your home for the next 40 years or more, then you want to make sure it is yours. Because it’s not just an ‘investment’ – it’s your home. You also get the enjoyable feeling of actually taking part in the design and construction process.

The process will vary a little depending on where you are. Generally, it proceeds through the steps outlined below. If you already have the design and concepts, we can proceed to step 3 or 4.

  1. The Consultation – We meet for an initial consultation to get your ideas and preferences down on paper.
  2. The Conceptualization – With the help of our designer, we prepare a concept plan and 3D walkthrough. We provide a preliminary budget estimate, independent site contour survey, soil classification, and DA approval (if necessary).
  3. The Design – Taking in the comments of you and the local authorities, we draw up designs and adjust the budget as required.
  4. The Engineering – At this stage, the engineering drawings are drafted.
  5. The Quotation – A quote is offered based on the drawings and adjustments.
  6. The Contract & Deposit – A HIA fixed agreement is signed and deposit is paid for us to commence work.
  7. The Council Submissions – The relevant files are sent to the councils.
  8. The Commencement – You are given an online portal to monitor and view all developments in the building process.

To provide a smooth communication process, we provide each of our clients with access to a secure website with all of the details of their new home.

The client login area provides information about your selections, upgrades, financial decisions, questions, documents, photos, and more.

Yes, custom houses do tend to be more expensive. This is the cost of getting the home that you really want and not just another prefabricated production design. The biggest difference between custom builds and production builds is the cost per square foot. The flexibility that comes with building a custom home affects the price, and you’ll ultimately be paying more for the customizations you plan with your new home.

However, there are still ways to reduce the cost – talk to Rob on (08) 9317 8941.

We can tweak the price as well as the design and we’re confident that we offer the best custom homes Perth.

We moved into our new home on time and we are extremely proud of the quality and workmanship.

We met with and got quotes from a few builders recommended to us by our architect. At our first meeting with Rob Hyde, we immediately felt comfortable working with him – he was thorough, knowledgeable and transparent. We can only say that he has a great team of people, trades and suppliers that he works with. The quality of finish is outstanding and our building experience could not have been better.
