Follow one of our customers build journey
Thinking of building a new home? Then this series is for you. Vantage homes followed a customer on her journey of building a terrace home.
Building a new home can be one of the most exciting times in your life and Vantage Homes Qld makes it easy from when you make the decision to build right through to the day you move in. Throughout this six part series we follow Kendra on her journey of building a Terrace Home. In Episode one, we meet Kendra and learn why she is leaving the home she’s lived in and loved and why she has chosen to build a Terrace home. You might be surprised but Kendra is upgrading to a Terrace home for more space, including for her pets Bear and Leo. Terrace home living maximises your space and comes with minimum maintenance. Follow Kendra through the stages of the build process to learn how Vantage Homes Qld can make your dream become a reality.
Welcome to Design Trader by Vantage!
In episode two of Kendra’s Terrace home build journey we visit the Vantage Homes QLDs Design Studio. If choosing the beautiful interiors like tiles, benchtops, cabinetry, handles and flooring is what excites you then you’ll love being paired up with one of our Interior Designers to guide you through the process. Touch and feel the carpet, see the kitchen appliances and select from a large range of splash back tiles.
A great tip for anyone building is to keep a virtual scrap book or keep your magazines and pictures ready for the colour selection day, that way your personal interior designer can match and design specifically. This helps to save time and for those who love “everything” it’s a great way to keep you focused on what you want to achieve.
Watch as today’s Interior Designer Trudi walks Kendra through the selection process whilst enjoying a coffee in an inspiring environment.
Hello Beau! Today we meet one of Vantage Homes Qld talented site Supervisors Beau who walks Kendra through a site visit. The slab is poured and trades are onsite building the frame so Beau takes time to explain how long frame stage takes and what happens next. Despite some wet weather challenges the team are all running on time. You are in good hands with the team at Vantage, it’s a personalised service and you site inspections give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. It’s this stage of the build that Kendra is starting to see her new Terrace home come together. Walls are going up and there is a real sense of space and open plan living – amazing to think such a large house can be built on a small lot!
Remember that Herringbone splash back Kendra loved from episode 2?
Today on site the tiles have arrive and Beau runs through the pre tile site inspection. Together Beau and Kendra check the tiles selections for the bathrooms, ensuite, main floor tiles and the kitchen splash back are as selected in the design consultation.
With all the internal walls in place Kendra and Beau get to feel the flow through of the new Terrace home.
Keep watching as the next site visit with Beau and Kendra in episode 5 of the journey is Practical Completion and that means the home is 99% complete!
Exciting times ahead for Kendra!
Kendra meets Vantage site supervisor Beau onsite for practical completion inspection day. Her home is so close to being ready for handover. Eric from Handovers.com is bought in as an independent inspector and will go over the home and ensure its up to the standards of the QBCC. Its clear to see that Kendra is very impressed with the build finish and quality and can’t wait to get into her brand new Vantage terrace home.
HAND OVER DAY! Congratulations Kendra on moving into your brand new Vantage terrace home. Alison is back to talk to about the build experience and what you love about terrace living. We also get to see how the fur babies are settling into their new home and have a look around at the quality of the build and finishes.
