Frequently Asked Questions

How to design a house?

Designing your own house can be a complex and involved process. You’ll need to start with preliminary research and a design brief that incorporates your lifestyle needs and establishes a baseline budget. You’ll also need to work with an architect and/or building designer, as well as potentially other types of consultants like structural engineers.

Your professional advisors will help analyse your site and create viable concept designs. Once you have a design in place, you’ll need to obtain council approval before the design-detailing process, when the design and construction details are finalised and documented. After this, the building process can begin.

However, If you’re building a kit home, the design process can be as simple as choosing a standard design or modifying a Kitome design. Or perhaps you would like to create a completely custom kit home design? Whatever route you choose, the process should include a number of refinements and tweaks so you’re completely happy with the final design before any building work starts.

Can I design my own house?

Yes, you can design your own house from one of Kitome’s standard kit home designs, by modifying a design, or by working with our design team to create a design from scratch – we have a completely flexible process! When designing your own home, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. First, your block of land should suit  your purposes. Consider site constraints like soil conditions, slopes and rocky areas, and susceptibility to bushfires. These can impact construction costs.

Second, consider your lifestyle when planning your living spaces. For example, while open plan designs are popular, a compromise between open-plan spaces and intimate areas could be a better option for you and your family’s lifestyle, and might help you avoid costly renovations later on.

Finally, work with experts early in the design process so you’re aware of what you can and can’t do in the construction stage. Expert input also helps to keep your overall costs down as the build progresses.

How can I design my own house plans?

While dozens of apps and websites offer you free tools for designing your dream home, these floor plan creators can only assist you with getting you started. A lot of factors we take for granted go into great home design, and these can impact cost of running your home – thermal comfort, cost of build, and ambience all play a part. As such, for a workable house plan, it’s always best to work with professional design teams. These experts can give you critical and impartial advice, such as whether a design is right for your block of land and whether a given design will be within your budget when it comes to construction and materials.

Other ways to design your own house plans include kit home designs. These designs give you certainty in the build process by allowing you to keep costs under control. They also provide cost-effective design solutions no matter your budget or preferences, and you can modify these or create a custom design completely from scratch if you prefer to.

How to design a new home to build?

Designing your own home is the only real option if you want to create your dream home. You can hire an architect, drafter, and/or building designer to design your home for you. However, this can be a costly process, which is why working with Kitome lets you access more cost-effective and 100% personalised options.

With Kitome, you can select from one of our kit home designs and hire a contractor to carry out the build for you. Alternatively, you can sit down with our design team, who will assist you with modifying one of our designs or creating a design from scratch.

Working with a design team means you can start by identifying your project scope before drawing up concept plans for a detailed quote. Kitome can assist you with the approval process with your local council, to help you obtain the necessary council approvals before starting construction.

How long does it take to build a custom home?

It can take up to eight months or even several years to build a custom home through the traditional process, with the architectural and pre-construction phase adding an extra three to nine months. However, with a kit home, you have more control of the entire process that can provide a flexible time arrangement. If you owner-manage the build, you will have control when trades are on site to assist to speed up the process.

The larger and more complex your design, the longer it could take to complete. Other factors like project interruptions, weather, the contractor you hire to assemble your home, and obtaining council approvals could extend the time frame to completion. If you decide to make changes or variations close to completion, you’ll also be looking at a longer completion time.

A reputable kit home provider, such as Kitome, can assist with the entire process.

Are kit homes worth it?

Kit homes are a great option because they can give you access to a wide variety of high-quality home designs while potentially saving you thousands of dollars. Since the home is partially constructed before assembly on your block of land, you could have a far shorter building and construction time, allowing you to move in more quickly. The best kit homes offer convenience and faster time to move-in for a great price.

While some believe kit homes all look alike and associate them with low-quality materials, with a quality provider like Kitome, you have the confidence of high-quality designs and materials for your house. You can select from more than 50 designs for three, four, or five-bedroom homes. Our design team will work with you to modify existing designs and add any features you want, from paint colours and flooring materials to your chosen finishes and fixtures. We are flexible and every choice is yours!
