Pre-Build Phase: Mistakes to Avoid

Hello! This is Episode #216, and it’s the third of four episodes where I’ll be discussing in more detail the four phases of building or renovating your family home. In this episode, I’m talking about the Pre-Build Phase.  This is the phase between Design and Build, and for many, it’s a frustrating time of impatiently waiting for construction to start. Yet, it is the point at which so many things need to be confirmed, finalised and agreed upon, it’s important to navigate through it thoroughly and carefully. So, I’ll be sharing more about that, and the common mistakes to avoid. You'll also hear from a HOME Method member about their project experience as well, and how they found it to work with me during their renos or new build project. And I’ll be reminding you about what is currently going on with HOME Method if it’s been on your radar to jump into for your project.

So, let’s dive into the third phase, Pre-Build.  This phase is an interesting one, because many homeowners really do race through this phase. For many, starting construction feels like the project is finally real and actually happening, and so there’s an urgency to get things happening on site as soon as possible. Yet, the thing about Pre-Build, is that there is loads in this phase associated with your money, legal issues and getting properly prepared for a smooth construction or build phase. And racing through this Pre-Build phase can result in some quite dangerous consequences, including cost blowouts, and legal issues that are expensive and difficult to get out of. The Pre-Build phase is actually the last chance you have to put the brakes on, and ensure that everything is in order, understood and clearly communicated between you and your team prior to starting construction on site. Tune into this episode, and learn more about the commonly made mistakes in the Pre-Build Phase that can make your project far more stressful than it needs to be. LISTEN TO THE PODCAST NOW.
