Looking for an alternative to project builders?

This is the headline in our latest press ad. Why? Because we want people to know that project home builders are not the only answer when deciding to build a new home in Perth.

We have over 30 years’ experience working with project home builders. That is Rob and Shelley’s background, so we have nothing against them. However we have seen first-hand the good and the bad of project home building and felt that we could offer people in Perth a better way to build.

Now let’s be clear. It is not all bad. There are many reputable project home builders in Perth. However there are certain practices and processes that are common to all project builders, which can be done differently when you are a small, boutique home builder like us.

There are a few core differences that we find our clients experience when building with Promenade Homes. We will run through them for you, but if you want to hear it from the clients themselves then invest 4 minutes in watching this video:

Difference #1 – A 100% unique design

When you build with a custom home builder like us, we can design your home from scratch. We sit you down with one of our talented designers, form a design brief and create a home that is 100% unique to you, not something that we have built numerous times with a couple of tweaks to suit your tastes.

Difference #2 – We don’t cut corners

Again, there are many reputable project home builders, but is the owner of the company out on site regularly overseeing what is happening during construction? Probably not. As you will note in the video, our clients know that Rob and the team have an eye for detail, and close enough is not good enough.

Difference #3 – Flexibility

This is probably the biggest difference. Project builders have to have strict processes and policies. This is not a criticism, it is simply fact. They build a large number of homes and cannot afford to be making changes during construction. However with Promenade Homes, you get the flexibility to change your mind, to bring in your own trades and to use your own sourced materials. We don’t have hundreds of jobs to manage, so facilitating these requests is something we go out of our way to do for our clients.

Difference #4 – We get to know you…personally

In the video Shelley talks about missing clients once we hand over the keys. This is a very sweet sentiment and highlights another big advantage of working with a boutique home builder…you are not just a number!

Difference #5 – There is often no difference in the final price

We want people to know that building a custom home is often no more expensive than building with a project builder. Our client’s budgets range from $500,000 up to over $1m, and just like a project builder we will work with your budget to deliver the best home possible. We will tailor the design and level of specification to suit your financial requirements and will even offer up cost-effective alternatives to achieve the same final result for a lower price.

So there you have it, a few key reasons why bigger is not always better. If you would like more information on how we can help with your new home, get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
