It’s the little things that all add up!
From the painting to planning ahead, there is always something that you can do that will help you save money not only on the current job, but in the future as well.
- Some builders will allow you to complete parts of the construction yourself and will take a credit off the overall contract amount. These jobs may include the painting, tiling, flooring, cabinetry, landscaping, the fit-out, purchasing your own light fittings and cleaning the house before hand-over. While they may not save you much, a few thousand here and there can really add up over the life-span of the job and if you have family or friends who are qualified tradesman, the savings can be even more.
- If you don’t have enough money to build your dream home, plan ahead. By doing this you will decrease the amount you may have to spend and make it possible, should you choose to extend or renovate your house in the future. Things like using vinyl flooring until you can afford tiles is a great example.
