Defining Your Custom Home Vision

At Serenity Homes, we understand the need for highly personalised design. You will be involved in the custom design process during every step of your journey. Before embarking on this exciting process, consider some of the following questions:

  • What is your budget?
Defining your vision is the first step towards your custom Serenity home.

Thinking About The Future

Once you've thought about the features and lifestyle goals of your new luxury home, we can help you bring your vision to life.

Perhaps you’re thinking about designing a home for the future? Then ask us about home automation: a fantastic way to centralize your heating, cooling, security locks and appliances. It can save you both time and money.

The Serenity Point Of Difference

At Serenity Homes, we’re not just your builders, we’re also your friends. We pride ourselves on crafting your home as if it were our very own.

Our contractors are not just professional tradesmen, they are craftsmen who have been with Serenity Homes for the past fifteen years. Rest assured your plumbing and electrical will be completed to the highest possible standard.

As sloping-site specialists, we know every block of land is a little different. Our chosen engineers will perform a soil test on your land and return for regular site inspections. Our build is always site and customer specific; your home and its surrounding environment will be in perfect harmony.

Smooth And Timely Construction

We are often asked how long a build can take. The truth is there is no standard answer — depending on the size and design of your home, it can take anywhere between six and twelve months. The materials we use will be of the best quality and we recycle a high percentage of our waste. Ask us about Hebel panelling and uPVC double-glazed windows: both have brilliant thermal absorption. Your home will require less energy to keep you comfortable, translating into lower power bills.

Gary Barnes will be on site daily to oversee the build of your luxury custom home. He will be your primary point of contact and will liaise with you throughout the whole process. You can have confidence that the build of your home will be smooth, timely and within budget.

Handing Over The Keys

It’s nearly time to hand over the keys. We will conduct a final inspection of the home together to ensure all of your needs have been met.

On top of this, we have a three month defects warranty.

We have just poured months of care and dedication into building your new custom home. Perhaps you’ll recommend us to family or friends; many of our jobs are through word-of-mouth promotion. This is the watermark of a satisfied customer and the indication of a job well done.
