What We Do
First Home Buyers
So you’ve spent hundreds of hours going through those home design catalogues, visiting display homes, and building your Pinterest inspiration board for your ideal home.
We understand that your first home can be the biggest financial investment you’ll ever make in your life and it can be quite a daunting step to take.
Vuka Homes Pty Ltd is here to guide you through the entire process so that you’re always aware of what’s going on, what the expectations are, when the deadlines will be met, and how your new home will look when it’s finally finished.
If you have a floor plan idea, or perhaps you’ve seen a particular display home you like – let us know and we’ll work with you to come up with the perfect home that’s uniquely designed and developed for you.
Single Storey Homes
Single storey homes are the most common type of homes we build as they are the entry level to owning your own new home. However, don’t let the size fool you. We can build anywhere from a single storey home to 4-5 luxury single storey homes.
Every customer is unique and has their own specific preferences and needs, so we can tailor our single storey home to suit you and your family.
Double Storey Homes
So your small family is starting to outgrow your single storey home and you need something bigger. Great! We can help you with custom designing your first dream double storey home and getting it built to a standard well beyond your expectations.
Ever dreamt of coming home to that theater room you always wanted? Ever pictured yourself walking into an executive-like en-suite from your bedroom? All of these visions can be made into reality by Vuka Homes.
We love learning about our clients dream homes and how they’d like it to be built. Speak with one of our consultants and organise a free design consultation to understand how we can help you make your dreams of owning a lifestyle home into a reality.
Multi Unit Developments and Townhouses
Increase your property investment wealth with multi unit developments and townhouses by Vuka Homes. Our team have extensive knowledge and experience in building multi-dwelling and dual occupancy developments.
We’ve build up to 11 townhouses in the one project, so size isn’t an issue for us. Weather you have a spare block of land in your backyard and want to build a unit as an investment property, or you’ve purchased a large block of land with an old house that needs to be knockdown and rebuilt, we can take care of all of that for you.
Vuka Homes can build to your own plans and specifications or we can custom design a solution tailored to your individual property needs and challenges. As part of that service, we can also organise all town planning and council permits on your behalf so you can enjoy a safe peace of mind knowing everything will be taken care of for you.
Our aim is to maximise your property’s potential!
The Building Process
The First Meeting
Bring along your rough sketches/plans & engineering and we'll discuss a custom design that suits your block of land and your lifestyle.
If you do not have your own plans we can arrange a quality draftsmen who can turn your rough sketches into full house plans.
Approval & Contracts
We'll make sure you're happy with the final draft and then arrange your building contract and take a deposit.
We organise all the necessary insurances and building permits. Once we have all the required documentation from you, we commence the building process.
Construction comprises: Base Stage, Frame Stage, Lock-Up Stage, Fixing Stage and Completion Stage. You will be asked to make several important decisions at critical points. Making firm, timely decisions will assist in a smooth, continuous build process.
A week before handover, we'll make an appointment to walk you through your new home to ensure you are happy with the result. We'll then arrange another appointment with you for formal handover where you'll be given important documentation (such as your Certificate of Occupancy) and, of course, keys!
