Building a prefabricated home takes practice, experience, imagination and determination.
From the initial design to choosing options and adding a personal touch, all the way through to careful construction and specialist transport, it takes great attention to detail to ensure something so complex comes together seamlessly. It might not be rocket science, but it's not that far off!
Because this is such a big undertaking it takes a team effort to make the process as easy as possible. From you teaming up with our home consultants to outline your perfect home to our internal team working hand in glove to get the job done, your house ends up being home to dozens of people's hard work.
Understand more about our unique process below.
Manor Build is not your average New Zealand building company. In fact, everything we do sets us apart from the rest when it comes to home design and new builds.
Once you have signed off on the proposed price and delivery schedule, the drawings are submitted for working drawings. These enable us to take detailed concepts into plans that can be submitted to the local council for consent.
Completed drawings are then submitted to the council for building consent. While this process usually takes around 6 weeks the actual timeframe is dependent on the council's capacity and internal processes.
Up to 10 weeks
After the building consent has been issued we can add your home to our construction waitlist. Sometimes there is up to a 10-week wait for a building slot to appear based on when consents are returned.
Once a building slot opens up we can commence construction. This usually takes 8 weeks, during which weekly progress photos will be sent to you so you can see how your build is progressing.
The house is now ready to be re-located to your site. This takes a bit of time to load the house safely and securely onto the transport, take it to its destination and safely unload onto its final resting place.
Manor Build work with Central House Movers for all our relocations. Delivery dates are as close as possible to our finish date however we are subject to their move schedule.
Once the house is on-site there is a number of weeks dedicated to connections, touch-ups, final fixings and on-site work ready for you to move in!
Building a new home is a large undertaking and it's important that you choose the right house-building partner for you. Early conversations cost nothing so why not reach out to our home consultants to discuss your dream home. We're an experienced team that will let you know if there are additional considerations to factor in, or whether your ideas are easier to achieve than you might think!
