When is Building a Kit Home Yourself a Good Idea?

Today, there are many DIY videos, products and reality TV shows that inspire people to build their own kit home.

But is building a Kit Home for you? How do you know you are able to handle building this on your own?

We’ve put together 4 reasons why building a kit home is a good idea for you.

When is Building a Kit Home Yourself a Good Idea?

1. You are building on a block with a solid foundation

Before the arrival of your kit home, you should take into consideration whether you want your home to be built on a slab or on stumps. Your foundation work should be done to reflect the type of home you are building. You should also ensure you have enough space and storage room to store your package kit materials.


2. You are good at following instructions.

Kit homes can be built on your own by reading the manual and following the steps shown in the CD. Íf you don’t feel that you are suited to this role, perhaps someone else can be in charge of reading and following these instructions.


3. You have the time. 

Building a Kit home takes time, especially if you are planning to do it on your own. Many of our clients have taken a few months off work to be able to dedicate the time to complete their home. If you don’t have the time, ensure you have someone you can trust who can do this for you; preferably someone with a bit of knowledge in the building industry.


4. A Challenge

Ultimately, building a kit home is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. While it may take time and effort, you will be rewarded with a brand new home at the end.



With many families wishing to build their own home but have a minimal budget to spend, choosing a kit home could be the perfect solution for you.
