Excellent building experience.
We did the usual research to get the right builder for our house build. Novus homes were recommended by close friends who had just built with them. We couldn't find too many online reviews - good or bad so here is ours. The build from start to finish has been excellent. Great communication from Novus throughout the process made us confident we had chosen the right builder. The knowledge of all the staff was great - all of our queries and requests were dealt with promptly with good advice if we were making changes. When first looking for a build...er we were concerned with hidden costs and time scheduling but we are happy to report that was not an issue with Novus. The standard builders choices are excellent, whereas others seemed to use this as an upgrade opportunity. The final quality of our house build is excellent...and it was completed ahead of the original projected date. We can't be happier with our new home.

One good surprise after the next
After doing some serious looking around for a builder, we ended up with three that we considered using. However, Novus quickly shot to the top because they hit the ground running with the design process and when we compared costs, they were very reasonable. In summary, we felt we got good value for a home of exceptional quality, and service that made the entire experience positive from beginning to end.
Here was our experience in detail:
Sales - Out of the box, the project home design had some great features, such as a large open plan are...a that didn't have a column to hold it up like some builders need to do to keep costs down. The salesman was always very quick to get back to us with an updated design, and he had great CAD and design skills. Every time we brought up an idea or "issue" but we didn't know how to incorporate it into the design, he'd just send back a design that solved it - sometimes within an hour. We'd notice all sorts of improvements that he'd make with each iteration. He addressed all our questions point by point which we liked. We never waited long for anything. It was only necessary to meet the salesman in person on a small number of occasions because our home was pretty much designed over email, but when we did meet him, it was always a good meeting. It's a very great shame that that salesman is no longer at Novus because he is a real asset to any builder. Shire approval: Even though our shire is known to be "difficult", approval went through no problems in the minimum time of six weeks, even with consultation with our neighbours. Prestart: Quick and easy and actually quite fun. Within the choices available, there were always good options.

Fantastic experience from start to finish!
After purchasing a block in Alkimos we spent a lot of time deciding on the right builder. After looking at all the well known builders we found a display home built by Vision One Homes which we fell in love with but was too big to fit on our land. The Building Consultant was very helpful and managed to adapt the plan to fit our block and still keep the layout and the front facade the same and within budget. Vision One's price and specification was comparable to the other builders we had been dealing with. The pre-start process was great, the P...re-Start Consultant was very helpful and suggested some clever cost saving ideas to help us stay within budget. The build was very smooth, the workmanship was exceptional and handover took place within a week of the time estimated before construction began. We love our new home and highly recommend Vision One Homes.
We chose Novushomes because their display homes appeared excellent value and the awards they have won gave us confidence. Their designer was extremely helpful in helping us navigate subdivision and the approval process. The pre start administrator was excellent. However, as the design process progressed for our custom built home we began to be less and less sure we were getting value for money. For example, we were being charged hefty amounts for Essa stone bench tops and glass splashbacks when most builders these days include them as standard for a home over $700 000.
Custom design seems expensive

Scott Q.Vision One Homes
Thanks for the question, however you may be getting us confused with Vision Homes, who operate in NSW.
We are Vision One Homes and operate in Western Australia. We build affordable single and two storey homes. For more information visit our website www.visiononehomes.com.au.
I would love to hear about people's experience in building a custom home with Novushomes.
We built with Novus and found the sales rep fab... Pre-start was not the best experience -not much products to choose from. The build was not too bad only because we keep an eye on the build. As you can imagine no one looks after your home like you do... We had a few minor problems which we had to get owner of co on site to rectify problems but was sorted out promptly. We are currently looking at building again we Novus but find the rep not so prompt due to personal issues. Overall the workmanship was the best we had for example brick work, plasterer we're spot on and painter took great pride in his work. Cabinetry ok, plumber and electrician terrible but hoping they are no longer there... Value for $$
Best of Luck
