Why do homes of similar size vary in price?
As Walter homes are builders of quality homes which endure time, we individually price each home to ensure the highest level of quality at the best possible price. In the present building environment building products, inclusions and designs are so wide and varied that each home has to be assessed individually to establish the correct price. The engineering, materials and construction methods used in the building of your home will have a great bearing on the overall price of the project. Also local council fees can vary considerably effecting the cost of the building.
Can we make alterations to your standard plan to suit our requirements?
By all means we wish for your dream home to be as individual as your tastes and lifestyle requirements.
Is the facade of the home able to be changed to suit our tastes?
Sure. Whether you want a Federation, Tuscan, Contemporary or any other facade this will come down to your personal taste (a facade change will play a part in determining the total cost of the project).
