Homebuilding can be a complex task, and it’s easy for costs to go sky high if you don’t know what you’re doing. Portrait Custom Homes has been in business for over 20 years, with a long list of satisfied customers.
We have an extensive list of suppliers, contractors, designers, and other home building-related contacts to keep costs where they should be – low. We also have a reputation for transparency and fair pricing. Whatever the costs are, you’ll know about it.
Another reason to use a project manager for your home build is due to the essential variables of time and energy. Many have tried to complete a DIY project or a build on their own. It’s very stressful if you don’t know what you’re doing, and it could end up costing you money in the long run.
Portrait Custom Homes can serve as project managers of your build projects, whether they are a new build, additions, or renovations. We are experts in building beautiful houses and in controlling costs.

Yes! There are so many things that can go awry when building a home. You have to get everything in order and synchronize a lot of disparate tasks – plumbing, concrete, windows, electrics, sewerage and drainage, site maintenance, insurance, building materials, design, etc. If you don’t have experience in this, then a project manager would be of great help.
This depends on the job description of the project manager. A typical average could be about 1.5% of the total inclusion costs, or 10% of the engineering budget. But this is not set in stone. Generally, a one-man-band project manager charges a simple percentage of the build costs, usually in the region of 10 to 12 per cent. Larger companies may tailor their charges according to the services the project and client need, and the time they anticipate spending supporting them.
A project manager will help you determine which spaces will work best for you, provide preliminary budgets to help the site selection and renovation process, schedule the project from design to completion, help with building permitting and soliciting vendors, selecting contractors, and hold site meetings.
A permit is required for work costing more than $5,000 and you must do an approved owner-builder course for work more than $12,000. The act of homebuilding is regulated in different states based on the Building Code of Australia, which provides a legal framework and technical standards you should keep in mind at every step.
Despite many attempts by people to construct their own homes, the results are usually substandard.
