ALLWORTH’S EASY GUIDE TO BUILDING ON ACREAGES
Whether you’ve already purchased your acreage block or are still considering making a purchase, there are so many benefits to building on a larger block.

The quote process
Bring all your land details with you. We will also need you to mark roughly where you would like the home to be built. We will provide the overall dimensions of the home, using stakes you ‘peg out’ the position. This doesn’t have to be surveyor accurate, just accurate enough so we get our levels and distance right to notify our surveyors.
A good mud-map is really handy too, showing how to get to your place and some distances off landmarks like large trees for the house position. Don’t know what a mud-map is? Ask us for an example. It’s great for you to have for your records anyway which is why we strongly suggest having one.
Once we have all your land details and your preferences, we organise an experienced Construction Supervisor to visit the site to shoot some levels and work out costs.
Estimators in our office will then price up the home according to your specifications. Once complete, our New Home Consultant will arrange a time to present the quotation to you.

Septic System / Wastewater disposal / Wastewater report
In all instances, a ‘Wastewater report’ is required for Council approval. Whilst this service is on offer from any number of firms – not all reports are equal. We highly recommend you allow Allworth to obtain the report on your behalf.
