Steelmaster costs each job on an individual basis. The reason being we specialise in individual Home design and since 1989 have completed over 600 different home designs.
All our costing is run through estimating sofware, so you only pay for the materials in the home kit. Not on a square metre basis which is inaccurate & in many cases you are penalised with additions or adjustments to standard plans with other suppliers.
The service we offer you is a home design to suit your requirements. We draft your design and you check it. Then we complete a costing, broken into two areas - accurate kit price (for material supply only) and a comprehensive construction estimate.
The construction estimate has 3 main elements - preliminary, construction and finishing. We can be as accurate with the preliminary and construction as we are with the quantity surveying. Although the finishing we can only give you a guide of allowances. Encouraging you to look at what is available and adjust our allowances to suit your requirements.
There are many variables to home design, construction and finishes that effect the final cost.
Concrete Slab - The most cost effective foundation on level land, which is why all project homes are on a slab. Also highly recomended in Bushfire prone areas.
