Manor Homes’ planning and building process allows us to produce homes that work for you any time of the year. We build our modular homes in a factory setting, and are therefore not delayed by weather like traditional builders. We can build you an energy efficient home to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter via two key ways, clever design and key features.When deciding on building a new home, sometimes the most challenging part of the process is working out where to start. At Manor, we have taken the guesswork out of the entire process and will gladly walk you through our tried and tested approach to prepare you for your build and get you closer to the lifestyle you have visioned.
Below are the first 3 steps in our 7-step Manor Process.
1: A Quick Chat
Building a home is something that most people only get the chance to do once in their lifetime, so we know that our first chat with you will be critical. Most of our first chat is likely to be questions from you, and we are ready to answer them. This chat isn’t about putting on the hard sell; we don’t need to do that. We know our homes speak for themselves.
We will talk you through what we can offer to ensure it aligns with your vision of your new home and lifestyle. We also outline how the whole process moves on from here.
Don’t worry if you still have questions after this initial meeting. We will work alongside you for the entire build to keep you informed.
2: Discovery Meeting
Armed with the answers to your questions from our first quick chat the discovery meeting is where we take our relationship to the next level. We conduct this meeting over zoom so there is no need to travel.
The discovery meeting takes you through the next stage of your build journey and what you can expect from us for the rest of the process.
If the Quick Chat was about you asking us questions, the Discovery Meeting is about us asking you questions. Are you downsizing? Is this home for a growing family? Is this your primary residence or used as a holiday accommodation? When do you plan to move in? What do you need to be included in your budget? These questions will allow us to understand what you need from us and your new home.
The Discovery Meeting is crucial in ensuring we can avoid any nasty surprises later in the build. At this step, if, unfortunately, we can’t help you, we will tell you and point you in the right direction for a solution that better suits your needs.
We will also use this time to help you consider what layout suits your needs and lifestyle. Do you often host guests? Do you have teenage children and require a separate living area?
Once you are happy and we know we can deliver for you, we will move on to the next step of the process.
3: Design Solution
In this stage, we take everything you gave us in the Discovery Meeting and turn it into the beginning of your home. We will talk about your block or piece of land, potential views from your home, the best placement for sunlight and how we plan to orient your home. We pay special attention to ensure you get the right amount of winter sun and are ideally located for summer shade.
Landscape factors will also be a part of our chat. In this stage, we will address the Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) rating and flood issues that may be prevalent in your area. This landscape assessment will determine which type of home design we recommend for your site. The Design Solution stage is also where we get into the nitty gritty, how we can help with financing and other building-related services.
Then comes the enjoyable part. This stage is where we can select which styling preference you desire from our 4 themes.
Simple elegance for modern country living, characterised by large sweeping verandahs, open-plan living, and substantial deck areas.
Elegant and relaxed living with relaxing grey and white tones, horizontal paneling, and contrasting accents.
Architecturally inspired minimalist style with clean lines, textured facades, and ultra-high ceilings for a modern feel.
Glass doors, large windows, light-weathered wood elements, and skylights evoke the feeling of coastal living.
Beyond selecting your design theme, we also offer the ability to personalise the design to ensure we can bring you the exact home you have visioned. We will present ideas suited to your needs, like verandahs, window placements, and door locations.
Our main goal is building you a home that helps you achieve your desired lifestyle. We work together every step of the way, so you always know where you are on your journey.
