This flexibility allows you to tailor the process to your specific needs. For those who already have a builder and prefer to oversee the construction themselves, there's the option to simply buy the Flatpack Kitset. No fuss, just the kitset flatpack supplies you need to get started!


Step One; Before you get started: Are you aware of the potential extra expenses when constructing on your property? When you choose to have your project built on one of our yards, we will arrange for a Code of Compliance Certificate (CCC) this is an additional cost of normally $3,500 for council fees and submission (this can vary with different councils). Licensed builders a bound to build within the building code, therefore if you engage one of our suggested builders they will not build without a consent. Once build is completed It will be ready for delivery, allowing us to seamlessly transport it to your location. From there, the responsibility for ensuring your site's compliance rests with you. 
A common misconception is that construction projects under 30sqm do not necessitate a building permit. However, this belief is incorrect. In reality, installing a kitchen or bathroom typically requires obtaining council approval, thereby classifying the structure as a minor dwelling if a second build on your site. Depending on region minor dwellings can incur additional council property development fees, your sale consultant can walk you through this process.
Consenting costs: Should you need assistance with onsite consenting, or if you're uncertain about your ability to build on your property, prior to purchasing one of our flatpack, we've got you covered. TaylorMade is at your disposal and at mininmal cost can conduct a thorough site evaluation, providing you with clear insights on your project's feasibility, potential restrictions, and any obstacles you might face. The costs for this first assessment is $200.00.

Site costs: Once the site assessment wraps up, you're ready to move forward, should you require additional assistance with site works, we offer two options. One we can introduce you to our network of preferred contractors that you can work with and will give you pricing, your sales consultant can help you connect OR you continue to engage TaylorMade Housing to seamlessly manage this aspect of your project for you.
