Clarendon Homes are building happiness

At Clarendon Homes, our days are filled with building happiness. It’s sort of our ‘thing’.

 

Yeah, of course we make great homes. You don’t get over 35 years in this business without that to your name.

 

But, beyond that, we put our hearts and our souls into it. Think about it like this (and forgive us if it’s a weak analogy): you always hear about food being ‘made with love’. Well, it’s exactly like that just on a way bigger, life changing, smile making scale. But it’s not just our homes that are made with love, it’s every little thing we here at Clarendon Homes do that’s made with love, too.

 

 

Our main purpose beyond building great homes for great people, is to spread joy to our customers, the community, our businesses partners and everyone else without our business, too. That’s why, from day one, our entire team know that they’re with us to build happiness.

 

Whether they’re accountants, timber delivery guys, frontline salespeople or in construction. Sure we’re pretty close to what we do so we might be biased, but we think it’s pretty darn special. It’s really nice knowing that there’s more behind what we do. More love. More laughs. You know?

 

It’s that feeling that our fearless leader, Peter Campbell had back when he build the first Clarendon Homes display home way back in 1978. And it’s that same feeling that kept him building on and building on, year after year for over three decades.

 

It’d take the most gifted of artists to convey the feeling that we get when we hand our customers the keys to their new homes, and we certainly can’t paint the emotion behind their smiles when they walk through their brand new place for the first time. But it’s those little/big things that keep us doing what we do each and every day. It’s those things that get us out of bed in the morning and keep us working year round.

 

Sure, “thankyous” are amazing, but it’s the smiles and emotion we get to see that pull at all of us at Clarendon Homes’ heartstrings. And so, now let us thank you. We get to change lives and build happiness each and every day, and we couldn’t do it without you.

Clarendon Homes: homes with heart

At Clarendon Homes, we know all to well that far too many people settle for a home that’s not truly…well…them. That’s why, more than 35 years ago, one man decided to give his all – all his time, all his knowledge, all his heart – into designing and building homes designed specifically for everyday Australians.

That’s right – our founder and CEO Peter Campbell set about building happiness and creating homes, but not just any homes. They were homes with heart – there’s a big difference. At Clarendon Homes, we think a home with heart is a home that’s made just for you. It means you were there from the very beginning. You chose the design, you chose the inclusions, you picked the colour scheme, you made adjustments where necessary to suit your lifestyle. A home with heart is a home that was designed and built with you in mind.

Sure, there are definitely some older homes can feel like home, but so much of the time you inherit bad plumbing, aged wiring, and non-environmentally friendly products that were used to make the home. When it’s a home with heart, there is none of that.

When you move into a Clarendon Homes home with heart, you’ll notice that it’s designed so you’re never left wanting for anything.  You and your family have all the growing room (and rooms) you need. There’s plenty of storage space (something sadly missing from so many older homes), a beautiful designer kitchen (to nurture the chef within each and every one of you), entertaining areas (to nurture the host and hostess within each and every one of you), and stunningly designed bathrooms so that your day spa craving can be answered, too.

We’ve got over 50 designs, and we know that these are the kind of homes that you can really live in. Because when you live somewhere, it’s about more than just existing – it’s about making your space work for you, and that’s exactly what Clarendon homes do.

The Clarendon Homes Colour Studio

Your very own Clarendon Homes home

 

At Clarendon Homes, we don’t believe in taking a one-size-fits-all approach to anything at all, especially our homes. That’s because we know that everyone, and every situation is different.

 

That’s why, when we come up with our designs, we keep in mind that not each home will suit everybody’s needs, blocks, and personalities. Hence, we have over 50 designs to choose from, each of them with room to move.

 

This means that whether your family is big or small, at Clarendon Homes, we’re sure to have a design to suite. As well as this, there are plenty of ways you can further cater your home to your needs.

 

The Clarendon Homes Colour Studio

This is the part of the Clarendon Homes process where everything is ironed out, creativity is sparked, your inner child can be awoken, aginations run wild and your home takes shape. This is where you come armed with ideas, scrapbooks and inspiration – you’re about to decorate your future home so a little preparation goes a long way. But don’t worry … we’ll be there to help you through every step of the process.

 

The Clarendon Homes inclusions packages

Whether you’re a home buying veteran or are brand-new to the whole game, our inclusions packages mean that your budget, taste and style are all accounted for…in the best way possible, of course.

 

If you’re a first home buyer, our limited-edition Evolution package is perfect for the budget conscious and offers true quality inclusions made to last. You’ll get Fisher & Paykel appliances in the kitchen, contemporary finishes in the bathrooms, and stylish simplicity throughout the entire home.

 

After something truly sophisticated and stylish? Try our Sapphire Inclusions package. It’s built for function, but remembered for its excellent finishing touches. Family living at its very best, you’ll love the wide range of stylish products that this package makes available to you.

 

And then, if you’re a lover of all things luxury, the Diamond Inclusions package is for you. With only the finest assortment of fixtures, finishes and fittings, this package offers distinctive style and exceptional quality. If you want only the finest statements in your home, welcome to a world of luxury where absolutely no detail is overlooked. This is the Diamond Inclusions promise.

 

So no matter what you envision your home to be, let us at Clarendon Homes help you turn it into a reality – and even have a little fun along the way.

Clarendon Homes brand-new addition

A little while ago we released the Ferndale 31 – one of our latest Clarendon Homes additions.

On display at Sydney’s latest Display Centre, The Ponds, she was 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a double garage and 5 amazing living zones worth of pure, made-for-narrow-blocks amazingness.

 

Naturally (or we would not have built it) she was a true favourite of ours. Having said that though, it’s not about us. In the end, it’s all about you and what you want.

 

When we design homes, they’re designed for you, your family and all the moments and events that comes with your lives. All the Christmases, the graduations, the birthdays, the school holidays and the random Saturday morning wrestling matches.

 

That’s why all of us at Clarendon Homes take your feedback on our homes very seriously. After all, it’s your home – there’s no reason it shouldn’t fit you perfectly.

 

That’s why, when we asked for your comments on the Ferndale 31, and some of you mentioned the kitchen could be bigger, we got right to work making your changes.

 

We redesigned the layout, closed the home and took to rebuilding you a bigger, better, more user-friendly kitchen. It’s because we totally get that for most households, the kitchen is the most important room in the house.

 

It’s the place where the meals are made and served. It’s where the midnight snacks are snuck. It’s the happy tummy hub of the whole home, so unless it’s perfectly perfect and up to your high standards, then it’s not good enough.

 

So now we’d like to introduce Clarendon Homes’ new and improved Ferndale 31 MKII. She’s still 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a double garage and 5 living zones worth of pure, made-for-narrow-blocks greatness, but now she’s got an even better, even bigger kitchen, perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight snack wonders.

 

Oh, and if you’re wondering what the MKII stands for, just think of it as ‘My Kitchen Is Awesome’, because it is. It really is.

Meet Clarendon Homes’ Ty Cronan

 

With the recent opening of our Willoughby Info Centre, Clarendon Homes are servicing the Northern Beaches and North Shore like never before with the recent opening of our Willoughby Sales Centre.

 

Meet Ty Cronan – the man behind it all, not to mention the face of the North Shore and Northern Beaches. He’s without a doubt, the definitive local expert. We recently caught up with him to talk knockdown and rebuilds, as well as what he loves most about his job with us at Clarendon Homes.

 

How did you get to become the North Shore and Northern Beaches specialist?

 

I’ve been working in an around Sydney’s North for going on a decade and these areas are primarily knockdown and rebuild zones. During my time working for Clarendon Homes I’ve gained a vast amount of building experience in dealing with all sorts of issues in the realm of knockdown and rebuild jobs. It’s been great to have this experience for the fact that I’ve been able to call upon it with all of my clients. It’s great for them because it allows them to have sense of control and a better understanding of the process.

 

Every days sounds varied and different for you, but if you did have an ‘average day’, what would it involve?

 

You’re right. No two days are the same. Not only is work always different, but having a family with four little ones means that there really is no ‘normal day’. I get up around 5.30am to take the gang for a coffee (well actually, the coffee is just for me) and to check out the surf. Then work is where I can relax, unwind and do something I love like helping people build and design their brand-new Clarendon Homes home.

 

Why do you think knockdown and rebuild are becoming more popular these days?

 

The current market conditions mean knockdown and rebuilds are favoured as land values increase and new land becomes more scarce. It’s just easier to buy an old property, bulldoze it and build yourself a brand-new home. I’ve seen people make a 30 per cent profit within a year! That made me which I’d done what they did.

 

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

 

The absolute most rewarding thing for me is seeing my clients’ smiling faces after walking through their brand-new Clarendon Homes home for the first time. Nothing can describe the sense of personal gratitude. Words don’t even do it justice.

The Clarendon Homes People’s Choice Promotion

Welcome to the Clarendon Homes People’s Choice Promotion. It’s our latest ‘big thing’ and the product of many fun minutes (okay…hours) of all of us at Clarendon Homes sitting together and brainstorming ways to make your experience with us even more memorable.

 

We often get together to talk homes and all the great things that come with them, and that’s where the ideas for our promotions come from. We think that finding, buying and building a home should be more than just that, we think it should be an amazingly life changing experience, so we always try to go that little bit further to make it so.

 

So what is the Clarendon Homes People’s Choice Promotion, you say? We thought you’d never ask. Basically, it’s two big packages of 12 premium inclusions in one awesome promotion – all you have to do is choose.

 

It was that freedom to choose that inspired the name – because we’re giving you the choice of the goods.

 

First up, there’s the Ruby Package. This package includes fully ducted air conditioning, automatic garage door opener, an alarm system, stone bathroom and vanity benchtops, an aluminium stcker door, 20mm stone kitchen benchtops, Westinghouse appliances, rangehood ducting, an inline water filter, a premium sink mixer, premium insulation and a timber-look garage good.

 

Then there’s the Sapphire package. It includes offerings like fully ducted air con, an alarm system, an automatic garage door opener, aluminium stacker door, an automatic garage door opener, entry door upgrade, glass splashback, 2600mm upgraded ceiling height, 40mm stone kitchen benchtops, SMEG appliances, soft close kitchen drawers, an inline water filter, and premium insulation.

 

So if you’ve been thinking about a new home, there’s no time quite like now to make your dream home a reality.

Introducing Clarendon Homes’ Peter Campbell

Let’s face it: in most companies the head honcho is usually that terrifying and not-often-see person who you’ll sometimes bump into in the elevator. You stumble on your words (and they would have been promotion-worthy words had you managed to say them correctly) and get all fidgety and strange around them.

 

At Clarendon Homes though, things are a little different. Introducing our CEO and all round nice guy, Peter Campbell. We like to think of him as the ultimate “approachable type”.

 

Don’t get us wrong: he’s still the boss and he’s still here to make a big mark on the home building business, but underneath his down-to-business exterior is a regular, approachable guy who we all love. He build Clarendon Homes from the ground up – literally – and it’s his blue collar roots that make us love him all the more.

 

We’ve all be watching him closely over the years and we knew he had a story to tell (and a good one, at that), so we cornered him in a meeting room one day and forced him to spill the beans on his life pre-Clarendon Homes, as well as just how he came to be where he is today.

 

Here’s the scoop…

 

He is one of five boys in a family who moves around from one RAAF base to the next. (His father was in the air force.) Peter says that his very first memory of home belongs to Bradfield Park, near Lane Cove in Sydney’s North West. After this, he and his family moved to the RAAF base in Richmond, and then onto (what was back then, an extremely exciting move) Malaysia where Peter’s father had been stationed. This was a three-year adventure from when he was nine to 12 years old, and Peter admits that, although when he first found out they were going he wasn’t quite sure where Malaysia was, but it turned out to be the best years of his life.

 

“At the time I went to a Catholic school in Richmond and I remember telling the class at show and tell that we were moving to Malaya (as it was known back then). I didn’t even know where it was but the nuns who taught us thought that was really something.”

 

“If I had to look back on my time, they were probably the best three years of my life, actually.”

 

Once done conquering Malaysia, the Campbell clan returned to Australia and settled in the Western Sydney suburb of St Marys. Peter refers to this period as his ‘misspent youth but he came out the other side and landed a job as a cadet draftsman, which he took to “like a duck to water”.

 

Once he and his family returned to Australia, they moved to the Western Sydney suburb of St Marys. This is the time he refers to as his ‘misspent

 

The rest is history, of course, but this is just where the Clarendon Homes story begins. But more on that next time.

Building happiness at Clarendon Homes

At Clarendon Homes, we spend each and every day building happiness. Sure we make great homes – you don’t remain in this business for over 35 years without that on your resume – but we go above and beyond to put our hearts into it, too.

 

Maybe this is a weak analogy, but you always hear of food that’s ‘baked with love’. Well, we like to think that we have taken this theory and applied it on a much bigger scale, life-changing scale. But not only are our homes made with love, everything us at Clarendon Homes do has that same love behind it.

 

We’re in it to spread the joy to our customers, to the community, to our business partners, and to everyone within our business, too. That’s why our entire team know from day one that they’re onboard with us to build happiness. Whether they’re working in accounts, delivering timber, or on the frontline in sales or construction.

 

We think it’s pretty special, actually. It’s nice to know that there’s more to what you do. Of course, we’ve known it all along. It’s that feeling that our founder and CEO Peter Campbell had when he built his first display home all the way back in 1978, and it’s that same feeling that kept him building yeah after year.

 

It’s hard to describe the feeling we get when we hand someone over the keys to their home. It’d be difficult to paint the emotion behind their smiles when they walk through their brand-new house for the very first time. But it’s those inexplicable things that compel us each and every day; that get us out of bed in the morning; that keep us working year round.

 

Thank yous are great; but it’s those smiles and emotions that get all of us at Clarendon Homes every time. And for that, we thank you. We get to change lives and build happiness every day, and we couldn’t do it without you.

The Playhouse pleases little Clarendon customers

If you tip toe along the footprints through our Parklea Display Centre, you’ll no doubt find yourself faced with all the wonders of The Playhouse.

Dedicated especially to those kids who are tired of the house-hunt and would prefer to spend their time doing decidedly more fun things, this super-incredible home is two storeys of fun and fitted with all the entertainment a kid could ever want.

Like what, we hear you say? Why, we thought you’d never ask!

Firstly, it’s strictly little Clarendon Homes customers only. No parents allowed!

Downstairs there’s a softplay area for the little ones, arts and crafts, air hockey, and an iPad area, as well as a movie room for relaxing and watching the latest and greatest kid flicks.

Upstairs is dedicated to bigger kids between eight and 16. There’s pinball, Pac Man an Xbox area and the ultra-awesome Clarendon Homes Playhouse Theatre where all the best movies play and the older kids can sit, relax and make the most of the house hunt.

The whole idea came about when Peter Campbell returned to Clarendon Homes as CEO and decided to shake things up and do things a little differently this time.

He said that with the launch of The Playhouse, Clarendon Homes are working towards creating a home buying experience like no other – especially now that the entire family is catered for. Because you know what they say: “If the kids are happy, everyone’s happy”, and that’s just what Peter’s taking care of.

He said the inspiration came from his two young grandchildren, because if he were a parent trying to find a home with the kids in tow, he’d just be too busy worrying about them to really make the most of the experience. Besides, once the kids have finished ‘bagsing’ their rooms and having a mini wow-fest, the fun can get old quick.

So if you’ve been thinking about a brand-new home but have the kids to think about too, head along to our Clarendon Homes Parklea Display Centre and let them make their own fun while you have yours. Warning though, they may well get a bit of a skewed view of what home should be. Apologies in advance.

Meet Clarendon Homes’ Phil Hallinan

 

Around here at Clarendon Homes HQ, there are lots of everyday superstars getting around doing their business. (You know…the Clarendon Homes business.) After over 35 years in the home building game, we know that it’s these people that are our story, and it’s these people who make us who we are.

 

We recently cornered Draftsman Phil Hallinan and made us spill the beans on how he got to be where he is today and just what his average ‘today’ entails. Here’s the interview now…

 

What lead you to become a draftsman?

 

I studied technical drawing in high school and took to it like a duck to water. I managed to pick up everything really easily to decided to stick with what I was good at. It just so happened that I loved doing it too.

 

What does the day-to-day of your job entail?

 

Each day is different but I could be completing a number of tasks. These include anything from drawing master drawings for the business to use, drawing our display homes and obtaining approvals. I also act as support to the Clarendon Homes drafting teams whether it’s problem solving or providing user-friendly AutoCAD blocks.

 

When it comes to your work, what is it that brings you the most pride?

 

It’s got to be the moment I get to see and walk around the finished product of something I’ve been working on for months.

 

How does it make you feel to see the homes that you created from the very beginning be brought to life?

 

There really is no feeling quite like it. It’s like a deep feeling of satisfaction and a job well done. It’s that visualization from paper to life that amazes me the most every time.

 

Well Phil, you’re safe from us cornering you in the hallways for a little while now. Thanks for talking us through your Clarendon Homes experience. Who knows who our next target will be? No one is safe.

Knockdown and rebuild with Clarendon Homes

At Clarendon Homes, we’re always harping on about knocking down and rebuilding, and just how good it is and why. There’s a reason we got into this business and that’s because we love brand-new homes. They’re sort of our ‘thing’ and that’s why we shout it from Clarendon homes’ rooftops that we think everybody should jump on the KDR (that’s what we shorten it to, FYI) bandwagon.

We put together a list of reasons why knocking down and rebuilding could be the option for you…

-       Well, first of all, you don’t have to worry about inheriting other people’s problems, which is often the case with a previously lived-in home. When you build brand-new, your only problem is which colour scheme goes with your furniture and who gets which bedroom.

-       From the get-go, your home is tailored completely to you and your lifestyle in each and every detail. There’s just no feeling quite like having brand-new everything. We recommend it.

-       New homes are healthier, safer and greener than their older counterparts. In a Clarendon Homes home (well, any new home, really) you’ll get all-new plumbing, modern electrical systems, and there are no other nasties found in many older homes, like asbestos and lead paint. And now that new homes are required to leave a softer footprint on the earth, you’ll be closer to green than ever before.

-       Because of better insulation, window construction and new appliances, you’ll ultimately save on energy bills.

-       There are no ongoing repairs meaning no fuss. There’s no need to remodel, repaint or re-anything – you’re home is ready for you to enjoy the moment you move in.

-       Welcome to a new world of convenience. With smartly located laundries, walk-in pantries, spacious bathrooms, airy alfresco areas, and ample storage space, a Clarendon home never leaves you wanting more.

-       Knocking down and rebuilding can save you more than double on renovating. Yep. Double.

-       Because you get to choose your layout, colours, fixtures and fittings, you can truly tailor your home to you.

With all that said, it’s hard to see the point in reworking and oldie when there’s could be a brand-new home with your name all over it. Okay…not literally, but you get what we mean.

We’re all part of the Clarendon Homes story

We’ve realised something around Clarendon Homes HQ, and that’s that we’ve got over 35 years of stories to share with you.

Just the other day we were talking with Peter Campbell (You know…founder, CEO and all-round legend of Clarendon Homes?) and he was telling us about his first home memories (there were a few – more on those in posts to come), the shenanigans he used to get up to when he was a kid, his first foray into architecture, and the advice that his first mentor gave him that he never forgot which inspired him to work toward where he is today.

Then we started thinking about our cadets onboard. Starting their career just like Peter did all those years ago. Where they’ve been, where they’re going, what inspired them to be where they are today.

There are also the stories behind our homes and what inspired their designs, the names, and just how they’ve evolved from some of Clarendon Homes’ original designs.

And then there are your stories, and we think these matter most. We’ve heard stories of your parents buying Clarendon homes and you following suit. We’ve heard about the home buying process and the post-moving in memory making. There are the ideas of what home should be being shaped for future generations, and there are older generations settling in to the mod cons that their childhood knew nothing of.

So, in the spirit of story telling, story sharing and the chance to just reflect, we’ve decided we’re going to share a Clarendon Homes’ story with you every week. We’ll start with Peter’s story and who knows where we’ll go from there. Whether it’s a showroom rep, a personal assistant, or one of our timber delivery guys, everyone here has a story and everyone here is a part of what makes us Clarendon Homes. Oh, and all of you, too.

 

 

 

Childrens-House

A little Clarendon Homes in your life

The other day at Clarendon Homes HQ, we were sitting around talking about homes. No surprises there. But it’s funny how much the idea of home differed from person to person – whether they’ve created their own idea of home as they got older, or their fondest memories of home stretch all the way back to childhood and mum’s cooking.

It made us wonder… what’s your idea of home? Is it a place that always smells of freshly baked cakes and joy? (Because if joy had a smell, it’d definitely be cake.)

Maybe it’s a place where the couches are old, the furniture doesn’t match, and there’s never any need for coasters on the coffee table. You know? The kind of place where guests sit down and feel immediately at home and if they happen to drop food on the floor, no one cares – “The dog’ll get it.”

No matter what your idea of home, at Clarendon Homes we give you the perfect canvas to turn it into whatever you want it to be.  Because we think it’s so much easier to create a home when everything just…works, and that’s what we’re all about.

In a Clarendon Homes home, you won’t have to worry about dodgy plumping, crazy-scary ceiling fans, old wiring, or terrible kitchens. The Clarendon Homes brand has been one of Australia’s most-trusted building brands for over 35 years, and when we say the Aussie mandate ‘no worries’, we mean it.

Because our homes come brand new and tailored to you, it means that the only worry you’ll have is where to put your stuff, which kids get which rooms and friends may be popping round more often than before just to get their fill of your home and it’s this home that may just change their idea of home completely (and for the better).

10-tips1

Top 10 tips of homeownership

It’s been over 35 years since Peter Campbell took his big dream and turned it into Clarendon Homes. Over this time, we’ve come to know a lot about the first home journey – from finding the right mortgage, to moving in, and all the crazy and awesome bits in between.

We know that just like every home, every situation is different and that, especially with first homes, the process can be a daunting task. We caught up with one of Clarendon Homes’ Tender Presenters, Joe Cruz. He’s an expert at this stuff and he’s given us his top 10 tips for first homebuyers. (But really, no matter how many times you’ve done the mortgage and home buying thing, there might be a tip few handy hints here that you could put to use.)

  1. Sort your finances out first. Get your loan pre-approved so you know how much you have to play with before you start looking. This means that if it’s love at first sight, you’re all ready to get the process started.
  2. Research all the government benefits you might be entitled to.
  3. Get to know the area you’re thinking you’d like to settle in. What are the land prices? It’s good to know so you have an idea of what you’re working with. If you’re looking to qualify for the First Home Owners Grant, your land contract and building contract will need to fall below $650,000.
  4. Block before home design is best. This way, you won’t fall in love with homes that won’t necessarily love your block.
  5. House & land packages are a good option if you’re after an easier process with a lot of the legwork already done for you.
  6. Remember: when it comes to builders, product and reputation are more important than offers and giveaways. Keep this in mind when choosing your builder.
  7. Be sure to consider hidden costs before choosing a builder, and try to choose one who offers fixed site costs.
  8. Experience, experience, experience. Choosing a building company with years of it is all-important.
  9. You can never ask too many questions. Make sure your builder knows their stuff. Also, a 170 – 180-day tender is best.
  10. Seek legal advice before you sign anything. It’s in the best interests of all involved.

Clarendon Homes Summer of Free

At Clarendon Homes, we think some of life’s best bits come in summer. Things like happy days at the beach, cricket tests, big scoops of ice cream (though, let’s face it, that’s a year-round favourite), and long, fun-filled days.

It’s definitely our most-loved time of year and that’s why us at Clarendon Homes have decided to honour it in the best way that we can think of – by offering you eight premium upgrades, all for free. Yep, you pay nothing, nada, zip, zilch, zero, niente.

It’s called the Summer of Free and if you’re wondering why we’d do something so huge, well, it’s probably because that’s how much we love summer (and seeing those big smiles on your faces). Either that, or all the sun and salt water have gone to our heads. Whatever the reason, embrace it, because summer can’t last forever and neither can this.

You can expect free fully ducted air conditioning, free upgraded ceiling height, and a free COLORBOND® steel roof, as well as five other premium upgrades – you guessed it – free.

We think that if you don’t already love summer (though we’re not quite sure how that’s possible), you will now with this big bunch of freebies with love from us at Clarendon Homes.

Come home to Clarendon

At Clarendon Homes, we don’t just build homes for the whole family; we build them for friends, relatives and acquaintances too.

You see, we’ve been doing this for 35 years so naturally, over time, word has got around and we’ve built up a tight knit family of happy Clarendon Homes’ customers.

After 25,000 homes (and counting), we’ve received our fair share of happy home stories and it’s these bits of happiness that make it all worthwhile.

From people whose parents have built with Clarendon Homes and them following in their footsteps, to first home owners who built brand new and haven’t looked back, and those moving on and stepping up to something a little more suitable to their lifestyle, we build homes designed for life and all that comes with it.

Each and every one of our designs is inspired by the everyday lives of everyday people. From their lifestyles to their tastes and evolving styles, we factor all of this into our thinking and in the end you get a home that really is your home.

Visit one of our display centres today and let us show you just what it’d be like to come home to Clarendon.

Your Clarendon Home in 6 Steps

The best things take a little time and here at Clarendon Homes we think that a brand new home is one of the best things in the world. We savour the good few months we get to spend with you from beginning to the end of your home building process and we’ve broken it all down into six steps for you here, just so you know what to expect and when…

1: The Site Inspection

We start with a land assessment to ensure your home will meet all the necessary regulations. This step includes a site inspection, a soil test and a thorough block survey.

2: The Tender

This is the part where you can discuss with us any changes you might want and we can work with you to cater your home fully to you. We will finalise the new home tender and go through how you envision the interior and exterior of your home to be.

3: The Building Contract

By this stage, the home tender has been accepted and we can get down to working on the architectural drawings and the building contract. This is also when your loan approvals and final structural changes will need to be in order.

4: Colour Selections

Catch up with our Clarendon Colour Studio team to sort out all the fixtures and finishes of your home, inside and out – from the kitchen to the bathrooms and the paint job to the staircase.

5: Expert Reports and Lodgements

We’re getting there! All signed documents are due by now and this includes reports to the Council, developer or certifier to support your application. We’ll also give you a bank pack that will get you on your way to finalising your construction loan.

6: Building Approval and Site Start

This is the part where we go over every detail and ensure everything is perfect before going ahead. This includes the final approval, finance and demolition approval (if it’s a knockdown/rebuild). Once this is all done, your home can get underway!

So there you go. Six little steps and you’re practically home.
