How much will the homes cost?
There are several things that need to occur before we can accurately assess the cost. We need approval from Ministry Of Education for our access plans. We also need the engineering company to design the infrastucture. As of November 2017 these are well underway and close to completion. Then we need the surveyor, landscape designer and architect to come up with a final version of the site ready for sending to council for resource consent. Then the quantity surveyor will assess how much everything will cost. This will decide the price of a section.
There is a range of house sizes from small suites to family homes and you will build it yourself or in collaboration with others. So the final cost of the build will be largely determined by you.
Catylst Homes can offer a house / land package at a fixed cost. Our builder Clint Goldie is negotiating a deal with suppliers so they can be centrally obtained at a very good rate.
You may also want to investigate the work of Tim Gittos who is designing the overall layout and our home. The more that is done callaboratively the cheaper.
When are you expecting to build?
Do I build my own house?
Do they all have to look the same?
We like the idea that you can put your individuality into the neighbourhood provided it fits with the other homes and is in accordance with certain Eco features (see Homestar rating). The simplest option will be to work with the architects that are mentioned above – this will provide individuality and enough common features so that the look of the neighbourhood is cohesive. If you desire another house option we will have to have a close look at your design before we approve it.
