What We Do

Provide a complete design and build service incorporating dynamic and individual designs

An all encompassing approach to your individual home. Each home is designed from scratch to a predetermined budget. No cutting and pasting to try and make a predetermined design work and no designing a fabulous home only to find out that
it’s way beyond your budget.

Build with clients existing plans

Bring us your existing plans and let us apply our expertise to bring your home to life.

Build affordable homes

We can design and build a quality home to a set budget. It is surprisingly cost effective to have a custom built home that works with your land. Because we
oversee every part of the process, we can manage costs to work within your
requirements.

Take plans through the Development Application approval process

Co-ordinating a complete submission, pre DA meetings, lodgement of the DA and liaising with Council throughout the process. This is completely managed by Peninsula Homes. There is nothing for you to do.

Bring experience in Complying Developments

An investigation of each project is carried out to establish if it fits the Complying
Development approval process.

Apply our extensive experience and expertise to every project

Building individual homes on challenging northern beaches locations requires the
experience and expertise that we bring to every home we build.

Control the entire building process

From start to finish, we will control every detail of your home. At no point do you need to
deal with council or coordinate your own tradesmen. We do it all for you.

Have regular communication with our clients
Be available to return your calls

Regular fortnightly meetings are a must to keep the lines of communication open and to
prevent misunderstandings. Outside of these meetings, we are always happy to talk to our
clients or reply to emails.

Remain flexible throughout the project

The way you see your home can change as the new structure is built and you can
physically walk through the rooms. We remain flexible to any new ideas or changes so that
the final result is the best it can be.

Listen to and understand your requirements

From the first meeting, you have our attention. Our intention is to gain a complete
understanding of how you would most like your home to function. This only comes about
by listening to and respecting our clients.

Closely supervise all our contractors

All of the contractors engaged by Peninsula Homes have worked with us for many years
and share the same work ethic. Our Site Supervisor is always on hand to lead and direct
our contractors.

Fixed price contracts – no surprises

At our initial meeting, we work to establish what a clients’ budget is and work to build
them a home with this cost in mind. Our fixed price contracts include everything from
demolition, excavation, fittings, PC items, flooring, driveways and more.

Provide honest and realistic building timeframes

We understand that more often than not, our clients need to rent a home whilst their new
home is being built. It is with this in mind that we advise the most realistic timeframes for
them to ensure they are not inconvenienced. Coupled with a strong trade base and
streamlined selection process, we work to ensure that construction timeframes are kept
to a minimum.

Full colour design and service and finishes

We engage the services of a Colour Consultant who will work with you to select a colour
palette for your home. This will include consultation of external colours and finishes as
well as assisting with kitchen colours, tiles, flooring, bathrooms and paint colours. You will
be presented with a colour board that will highlight all your selections. A carefully
considered colour palette will ensure your new home stands the test of time and an
independent professional Colour Consultant is the perfect person to take the guess-work
out of doing this.

Premium selections to choose from

We build quality homes, so it’s only fitting that we want quality finishes in your home. As
part of a Peninsula Homes contract, you will have a number of included premium
selections from which you can choose.

Deliver on what we promise

No one likes a broken promise, least of all, us. We take the responsibility that our clients
place in us very seriously. That is why we give so much to each home. What we say we will
do, we do.

See the project through with the same enthusiasm that we started with

Seeing a new home rise from the ground to handing it over to a client, it a rewarding and
satisfying experience. You can rest assured, that the enthusiasm from the Peninsula Homes
team is unwavering through the whole building process.


 

What We Don’t Do

Put short term savings ahead of the building’s overall integrity

We want our homes to stand the test of time and the integrity of the building is
paramount. If we have an idea that will have a lasting and positive impact on the home, we
will put it to the client for their consideration.

Surprise clients with unknown extra costs at the end of the build

If additional work is requested or extra costs arise through the course of a project, these
are openly discussed with the client and will only proceed once signed off by the client.

Rush our clients into selections that they may regret later

No one likes to feel the pressure of a quick decision that you may regret later. Our solid
communication and timeline of work ensures that clients have ample time to make their
selections.

Extra works without clients ok

Any works to be undertaken outside of the clients’ contract will only be done when
discussed and signed off by the client.

Build a certain way just because it’s simple or easy

The landscape on the Northern Beaches is varied and consideration must be given to the
fact that no two blocks of land are the same. With this in mind, we ensure that all homes
are designed and built to be the absolute best they can be. Simple and easy don’t come
into the equation.

Avoid an issue that needs to be dealt with

At Peninsula Homes, we pride ourselves on having open and honest relationships with our
clients and will promptly deal with any issues that arise.

Cut corners

We don’t cut corners just to get the job done. Integrity is the backbone of Peninsula
Homes and we have to be proud of every individual home we build.

Project homes

All of the homes we build are individually designed to take in the best aspects of a clients’
block of land and to minimise the less favourable aspects. Technically correct and
considered design has a long lasting and wide ranging positive impact on the home. Only
individually designed homes can do this.

Renovations where the client stays living in the home

Renovations, just like a new home, are a major undertaking. We take the safety of our work
sites very seriously and follow stringent OH&S guidelines. It is for this reason that we
cannot have clients living in a home when a renovation is being done.

Hide costs

We use the standard Master Builders Association BC4 Residential Building Contract for all
of our work and you can be assured that all costs are clearly visible within this contract

Under estimate the true costs involved

We never want to put a contract in front of a client that we don’t think includes all it
should. To under estimate, means we under deliver. We want our clients to have a true
picture of the total cost of their project so there are no surprises!

Over promise and under deliver

We want every Peninsula Homes client to love their home as much as we do. Our integrity
is on the line with each home we build. Our philosophy is simple. We follow through on our
commitments and exceed at what we deliver.
