Design & Build
Landmark can bring your dream home to life!
We assess your section and gauge its potential for light, space and your ideas – and then we make a plan.
Pinterest, Trendsideas, or even just a good old fashioned scrapbook are great ways to collect ideas about house designs. You may even find a site that allows you to design your own home online.
Create categories for living spaces, sleeping spaces, kitchen, bathroom and outside living. You can then start researching and collecting different ideas, articles and pictures that inspire you: furniture you love, a roof style you like, a pool area you can almost see yourself in. Lights, staircases, exterior finishes, floor coverings, room layout – absolutely everything that takes your fancy!
If you find yourself getting sidetracked or overwhelmed with new ideas during the building process – don’t panic! Just refer back to your scrapbook or your Pinterest board. Your original themes and ideas will help you to refocus. When you’re ready to start building with Landmark, share it with us and we’ll use this as the starting point for designing your dream home.
Visit your section
We encourage you to visit your section at different times of the day and spend time in each area of it.
While the positioning of your new home will be influenced by practicalities such as drainage, access to services and light, it’s also important that you have a feel for the land itself.
Consider where you would like to have each room, and how your overall design relates to neighbouring properties and therefore outdoor living spaces. We’ll work with you to create the best possible options for your lifestyle.
Architectural websites are great for generating ideas on structural features, cladding, rooflines, fireplaces and more. You can then show your Landmark Homes designer pictures of materials you like.
Don’t worry if you and your family have conflicting ideas! We are well-versed in interpreting different visions. The more discussion you have around your new design, the more ideas there are to draw on.
Talk to us
Talking to your local Landmark team is vital – especially in the beginning. Collaboration throughout the build is the most important part of the process.
Landmark Homes takes the hard work of collaborating with different tradesmen out of the equation. We’re a team that works together. From the beginning, you’ll be assigned a project manager who will keep you updated at every step. This means you’ll be kept in the picture throughout the entire build.
This is one of the many things that sets Landmark apart from other building companies.
We aim to deliver not just a home, but a thoroughly enjoyable home building experience.
