Construction Process – 13 Steps to completion.

Step One - The digger starts and we break ground!

The site is selected on your land and the diggers will level out your build site location. This is when you get to see how the location of your house is in relation to your accessway, proportionate to your garden space and roughly the size of your floor.

Step Two - Laying the foundations

Here you will start to see floor space area come to life. You will also see the underfloor plumbing laid out prior to the foundation being completed. Where a pod floor design is used in the foundation the concrete pour will now take place. Weather depending, a concrete floor can take up to 24 hours to set.

Step Three - Framework & External drainage

During this step you will see framework starting to go up and your build will start to take shape. Once framing is up your plans will now represent your new home. All external drainage including septic will be completed.

Step Four - The Roof

With the frames being erected we are now ready for the roof. Once the roof is completed, we are starting to get the build heading towards being weather tight.

Step Five - Roof and Windows

Roof is complete - soffits are installed. Window installation commences.

Step Six - Brickwork

With bricks now being installed your dream home is coming together. The electrical pre-wiring and plumbing pre-pipe can now start.

Step Seven - Insulation

Keep cosy during winter and cool during summer. The addition of insulation will help regulate the temperature and comfort of your home. Insulation allows the home to save energy and maintain a regular temperature all year round.

Step Eight - Interior

Interior preparation now commences: Linings and interior plastering now underway.

Step Nine - Paint ready

The painter completes all the final detailing prior to paint going on including framework and doors.

Step Ten - Painting

Step Eleven - Electrical and Kitchen

Your homes electrical work is completed and connected up to the grid. The kitchen is also installed.

The bathroom suites are all installed and finalised. The flooring starts to go down. The plumbing and final tapware is fitted.

Step Thirteen - Finishing touches

We complete final installation of carpets, shelving and door hardware and get your home ready for final inspection and hand over.


The most exciting part of the process. When you finally receive the keys to your brand-new home! Once the painter has finished, we will confirm a date for the final walkthrough and handover. The final walkthrough is to make sure that everything has been covered. Handovers are always at 4pm. To ensure handover is conducted on time all final invoices will be settled by the home owner with Summit Homes prior to handover.

You will receive a Summit Homes “Your New Home” folder, which will provide everything you need to know about your New Home. From Instruction Manuals, Warranties, Colour Selections to the Contact Details of the Sub Vendors that completed work within your house.
