Our Process & Standard Inclusions​

Our EASY 6-Step Process

When choosing to build with ELCOM HOMES, you can trust that your new dream home will be completed on time and on budget. We understand and appreciate the importance of the trust you have placed in us and promise to provide you with only the best service, throughout the whole process.

Stage 1


The process starts with a free on-site assessment and consultation with the business owner, Louie Elias. During this meeting, we will get a better understanding of your needs, aspirations and budget for your new dream home.

We will use this information to provide you with a custom tender. We work with you to help refine the tender inclusions and ensure everything fits within your budget.

Stage 2


Upon the acceptance of your Elcom Homes building tender, the deposit payment is made - $2000 for a standard design, and $3000 for a custom design.

Elcom Homes will arrange for a contour survey, Geotech report and working drawings for your project.

Stage 3


Once we have received your site reports, we will prepare the Building Contract. We invite you in to explain the details, and sign the contract.

At this stage, the 5% deposit payment is made (based off your construction cost); less the deposit already paid.

Stage 4


Upon receiving the 5% deposit payment, Elcom Homes will organise an appointment with Amy Elias, our interior designer.

Amy’s eye for detail and long-term industry experience will ensure your aesthetic vision for your new home are brought to life.

Stage 5


Elcom Homes takes the hassle out of what can be a very stressful process. All your documents are consolidated and prepared for lodgement of approvals.

These documents include your BASIX report, notifications for all Statutory Authorities (including water, gas and electricity), Engineer details, Council application, approval and appointment of PCA (Principal Certifying Authority) in the procurement of your Construction Certificate.

Stage 6


Once the approvals have been received, Elcom Homes will request a Lender’s Authority to Commence Construction (LACC) or formal proof of construction funding.

When everything has been finalised, it’s time to start Construction! We appoint you a site manager, who ensures your home is built on time, with the exceptional level of quality we pride ourselves on.

Are you getting value for your investment?

So you've made the exciting decision to build a new home... now it’s time to get to business!

Chances are, you've been planning and saving towards this project for some time, so it's important that you receive a quality outcome for your money. Without in-depth knowledge in the building industry, it can be tricky to choose the right builder and really know that you're getting good value.

To help you out in this decision making, we've put together a comprehensive checklist of all the inclusions to look out for. Covering everything from interior design, to site preparation, skirting, kitchen drawers and more, everything is taken into consideration.

By using this checklist, you'll be able to easily compare quotes and find the builder best suited for your needs. We hope this helps!
