Factors to Consider When Building or Renovating

If you want to build or make alterations to your home or on your property, there are several important elements to consider before you begin. This will ensure that your home still provides the space and functionality that you and your family need after the work has been carried out. We know how daunting the building process can be, and we want to help make it easier for you!


The land you plan to build on can have a major impact on the finalised design. The size of the land, existing slopes, the land’s general location and its orientation all impact on the design of the additions to your home. It will also dictate how you can maximise the available space and natural light. Land types, shape and accessibility can also impact on the cost to build, which makes them important elements to consider when creating your building budget as well as when laying out your floor plan.

The space of the design of your extensions can play a big part in the flow and functionality of your home, as well as have an impact on your floor plan. Important elements of space to consider are:

  • Storage and shelving
  • Flexible areas
  • Potential furniture placement

While open-plan designs are popular and provide an easy way to maximise the space of your home, poor open-plan designs can lead to excessive noise carrying throughout your house. It’s important to try and balance an open plan home design with privacy and noise reduction.


In home design, zoning helps determine where you should place your bedrooms in relation to communal areas like your kitchen or living room. The way you zone your home design will affect how much privacy you have and how well noise carries throughout your house. In major building projects, where there are a lot of structural changes, zoning is a very important factor to consider.

Home Cooling

The Australian Government estimates that 40% of household energy is used for heating or cooling. That’s a lot of energy! We believe that smart house builds can alleviate the pressure placed on artificial cooling.

By considering the land type and available space, your home can incorporate useful design elements that can help provide natural means of cooling, such as:

  • Large frescoes or outdoor living areas
  • Large windows for better ventilation
  • Integration between indoor and outdoor living areas
  • Open spaces that encourage breezes.


Lifestyle is often a building factor that gets overlooked. At Total Building and Construction, we like to get to know our clients and learn about the type of lifestyle they lead as this can affect the planned layout of your home. The completed build must suit your family’s needs aesthetically and practically.

As experts in building, we evaluate the floor plans of your home to make the most of the available space you have. We also ensure that the building and construction materials we use are of good quality and fit the dream home you have in mind. 

Homes require a perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics, which is why we use high-quality materials while building or renovating your home.

On Site Visit
The next step in the building process is to meet at the building site. This ensure that we get any detailed site specifics and therefore can give you a more accurate quote. Quite often the initial consultation takes place on the building site. Here we able to discuss in detail the location of the building and ensure it is situated in the most optimal position on the site and discus any site specific details.

Plans and Designs
If you have not already got plans this is where Rohan can assist you with having your plans drawn. 

Initial Quote
Initially Rohan will give you a quote based on the plans, site location and your building needs. At this stage the quote is an estimate only and we endeavour to ensure that these are as accurate as possible. You will now meet with Rohan again to discuss your quote and make any changes where necessary. 

Fixed Quotation 
This is where Rohan will get in contact with our hand-picked team of local subcontractors and suppliers to collect fixed quotations for your build. This is a comprehensive quotation that allows you to gain clear insight into your individual building process. 

Building Contract 
This is an exciting part of the building process as this is when a Master Builders contract will be drawn up and signed by yourself and Rohan and the onsite work will begin. 

Now the building can begin. Continuity of communication key. We endeavour to continuously liaise with you and also with our team of carpenters and hand-picked local subcontractors. This enables us to provide a streamlined building process for you, our valued customer.
