Building Process

Our team works hard to get things right the first time so everything goes smoothly from start to finish. Whether you’re a first time builder, or experienced at building, we’ll do everything we can to make your experience positive and hassle-free.

Our streamlined process is efficient and straightforward. Once contracts are signed and finance approved, working drawings are ordered. Next is the fun part – your personalised Colour Consultation. Here with the help of our highly experienced Colour Consultants you can choose from our wide range of Standard Inclusions, or upgrade and select from our high end inclusions options. 

The next couple of stages involve obtaining Covenant approval (if applicable) and Local Council Approvals and final updates, sign off and payment of deposit. Then we can begin construction. Currently, the industry is experiencing some shortages of material and labour, extending our normal construction time. But we’re working through these industry issues and completing all builds as quickly as possible.

The next key milestone stages are: base, frame, enclosed, fixing, and practical completion. At the Practical Completion stage, you can inspect your property and review it. We’ll attend to any touch ups required.  Once you’re satisfied, and all documentation and payments are finalised, you’ll receive the keys to your stunning new home. Now you’re ready to start the next chapter of your life with your CJ home. 


  1. Approvals

    Before any construction begins, the plans for your new property must be approved by the local Council authority. A qualified Building Designer is the best person to draw your plans. We offer this service to you as part of our building contract. 

    Once you have provided us with your finance approval we will begin the process of obtaining approvals immediately. Our team of qualified and experienced Building Designers will produce your property plans and prepare it for submission.

    When your land settlement is completed, we can submit the property plans to the Council for approval. The length of time for getting approval will vary depending on the local Council approving your house. Once we’ve received your approved plans, we can start construction.

  2. Construction

    Now that the fundamental structures are in place, we will install all internal and external fixtures. This includes the fitting and fixing of all internals, linings, architraves, cornices, skirtings, doors to rooms, baths, showers trays, wet area tiling, built-in shelves, built-in cabinets and built-in cupboards.Due to material and labour shortages, we cannot provide an exact construction timeframe but we assure you, we will work diligently to complete all builds in a timely manner.

    This is where the heavy work begins. After receiving your approved plans, we will complete the different stages of construction for your new home these include:  

    Base /Slab Pour
    The first stage of construction is laying the foundations for your house – commonly called “the slab.” The site is surveyed, cut, and underground drainage are complete.  Footings and slab are poured as well. 

    Frame Assembly

    The framing of your house will include external walls, and trusses to support the roof. Think of it as the skeleton of the house. We will place all the electrical and plumbing components for your house inside this frame. Our team will also set the roof structure in place during this stage. Typically this framing is completed in two weeks.

    House Enclosed
    This is the most exciting part of your home’s construction! Here, we will install and set up all the roof, windows, ceilings and walls to the frame and slab. By the end of this stage, you’ll be able to visualise your new dream home or investment property. 


    Fixings Internal and External

  3. Completion

    At this point, your home is 95% complete. Now, it’s time to add the final touches including: fencing, landscaping and other furnishings. This is the perfect time for you to point out anything you would like us to attend to. Once all items are completed and final payment is received, we’ll finalise all paperwork and hand over your keys. Your ideal home is now ready and waiting for you.
