The Design & Building Process

Building your home is a significant financial commitment for you and your family so it is important to get it right. Our friendly and experienced Home Consultants will work with you to bring your ideas to life and make the process of building your home easy, hassle-free and within your agreed budget and timeframe. Here are some of the things our satisfied customers love about dealing with Keith Hay Homes:

We Listen

Our philosophy is to provide you a home that works for you, so we take the time to listen and understand your needs and desires.

We’re experienced

We’re experts so you don’t need to be. Our Home Consultants are experienced and will work with you to address all important considerations, including how to utilise your section to get the best layout for your lifestyle while maximising sunlight and indoor-outdoor flow.

Stress-free project management

Building a home can be stressful and time consuming. You can stay as involved as you want to be and we’ll take care of the rest. We can manage the project for you from start to finish.

Flexibility and future proofing

We understand that your needs are unique and change over time. Much consideration has been given to designing a home that can adapt and grow with you.

1. Enquire

Make an appointment with your Home Consultant to discuss your requirements.

2. Estimate

Your Home Consultant will listen to your ideas and help select the home for you and provide free, no obligation, estimates.

3. Approve

Once everything is spot-on, payment of the Preliminary Fee Agreement allows us to conduct a thorough site inspection, draft your concept plans and provide a full specification list.

4. Fixed Price

We do all the up-front ground work and liaise with local authorities to give you a fixed price for your home.

5. Agreement

Our clear, plain English, Building Agreement is tailored to suit your project and circumstances. It covers the obligations of all parties.


We provide the necessary plans and coordinate your application for Building Consent.

7. Construction

The exciting phase of construction begins. Depending on the complexity and time of the year this will typically take three to four months unless you purchase one of our pre-built homes.

8. Delivery

Most houses are built off-site in our yard. You can watch as your brand new house is delivered. Then it’s time to hand over the keys.
