By choosing to build your new home with Darryl Bogotto Constructions, the building checklist will be a very useful tool in helping you to achieve your amazing new dream home.

Establish a budget

  • Have you consulted your bank, broker or financial advisor and obtained a pre-approval? If not, we can organise a consultation for you.
  • Once you have your pre-approval, establish a budget based on the repayments you are most comfortable with.

Keeping in mind the ever changing needs of any family, it is now time to establish what your needs and wants are.  Consider how long you intend to live or invest in this home and ensure you include those items most important to you are on your list.


When you choose to build with Darryl Bogotto our team will be there to assist you every step of the way.  We are here to help guide you in finding the right block to suit your lifestyle and needs.  The following is a list of things we discuss with you and take into consideration when working to locate your block.

  • Consider the location, does it meet the needs of your family?  Check access/proximity to the facilities required for your family (schools, bus, shops, hospital etc)?
  • Remember when looking for a suitable block, it is more cost effective to build on a flat block.  If you are looking at a sloping block, (no matter how little it may seem) you should consult your builder regarding the associated costs before purchasing the block.
  • Darryl and the team will help you find the block that is large enough to suit your needs and accomodate the home you are looking for.
  • Consider the direction your block faces.  Where is the afternoon sun?, Which direction are your prevailing breezes?
  • Are all of the services available to your block and where are they located on your block (sewerline, water, power)?
  • Do you need side access for your boat or trailer?
  • Most developments have covenants in place that need to be taken into consideration.  We have all of this information at our fingertips and can guide you to make sure your new home abides by the covenants no matter which estate you are building in.
  • Already purchased your block?  If so we can advise you what design elements will best suit your block to assist you in choosing or customising a design.
