Can you build within my budget?
 

Every home we build is designed to suit our clients’ lifestyles and budgets. Once we know your final budget, we can work with you to optimise your inclusions and functional requirements.


When do we need to complete all of our selections?

We complete all of your selections prior to starting construction. This enables a smooth build and avoids any delays, misunderstandings or pressured situations.


Is Aquatic Homes a buoyant, financially sustainable business?

It is a great concern to choose a company that can not only complete your most expensive investment, but also remain financially independent for the following 6½ years for the structural warranty. Established in 2002, Aquatic Homes is a buoyant, financially stable company with a solid industry reputation. We are long standing members of the HIA.


Do you have a selection of plans?

We do have a range of designs. We can also add your personal touches and requirements to make it unique. Alternatively we can design an original home for you or work with your own plans.
