When building a home there are always things that come up which can extend or halt the building process.
At Serenity Homes, our team of Adelaide custom home builders do their best to ensure that all deliveries and construction timelines are met on time, however, some things are out of our control.
There are two are factors that can affect the building time of your new home quite severely. These setbacks often come in the shape of council approval time or extreme weather conditions; both can have a significant impact on the completion date of your home.
Council approval can be a difficult goal to obtain if the designs of your desired home are not clear, or if they don’t adhere to the restrictions set in your local area. This is taken into account when we are initially going through the plans, and we aim to provide advice on how to avoid any unnecessary delays that may arise if the plans are disapproved.
At Serenity Homes, we liaise with your council for you - to learn more about what we do for you during the building process, click here.
If you change the plans of your home after you have gotten council approval, you will require the approval of these changes by the council again. This will delay our ability to begin building your new home, as all plans need to be cleared by your local council. This process will also accrue further costs from the council; this is why it’s best to really think about what you want before we begin the design process.

In regards to weather, contrary to popular belief there is no “perfect” time to build. While there may be rain in winter, the heat waves in summer can prolong the build for just as long. Pick the time that is best for you, and try to roll with the punches the weather throws at you.
Both of these setbacks are out of our control, but with careful planning and attention to detail we can help you avoid these obstacles.
