                Thursday September 22nd, 2016 04:22 Kit Homes Compared to Turnkey Homes

                There is a major difference between kit homes and turnkey homes. Kit homes are built by an owner builder, one who wishes to build their own home. Whereas turnkey homes are built by professionals, so that the client does not need to be involved with the hundreds of steps and processes involved with building a new home. ”Turnkey” simply means that you, the client, can go to your brand new home, walk up to the beautiful front door and simply turn the key!

                The process to become an owner builder is much more complicated than one might think. For instance, it’s a requirement of the Building Services Authority (BSA) that anyone who wishes to build or renovate their own home and spend over $11,000 must hold an owner builder permit, and these permits are only issued by the Building Services Authority once you’ve completed an owner builder course. The permits expire every 6 years.

                Here are a few of the processes involved with building your own kit home; legal requirements, site preparation, footings and floors, wall construction, roof construction, windows and frames, doors, screens, wall finishes, ceilings, fixtures, plumbing, gas, electrical, draining, and then some landscaping to top it all off.
                If you don’t have experience in all of these areas, building your own kit home could prove to be more challenging than you may think, especially tackling all the council codes, regulations and legal requirements!

                We at Bush and Beach Home Builders are professionals at building sustainable homes. We know how stressful and overwhelming the process of building your own home can be, so let us do it for you! If you think assembling a piece of furniture is irritating, building a kit home is a hundred times more complicated. Instead, let us do the work for you so that all you have to do is turn the key and enjoy your unique, climate engineered Bush and Beach home.

                If you want to see some house designs or learn more about our sustainable homes, please contact our team.
