At Anchor Homes, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional customer service and delivering your home on a budget and on time. To assist with planning your project and understanding the exact steps undertaken throughout the process, we have prepared our modular homes process outline for our standard modular range below – Please note that if you are looking for a custom designed modular home from the ground up, we follow a similar process, but begin with specialised design consultation and follow with an estimate & approval process.
Prefab Prebuilt Homes – Design Process
1 — INITIAL
On attending your first appointment you will meet and speak with your sales and design consultant to create a design that meets your personal requirements.
At this stage we can discuss any changes you may wish to make to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your design.
Once decided on a home design, Anchor Homes will provide you with a detailed estimate and an options list.
2 — READY TO GO
Once you have decided you would like to proceed with a new Anchor Home, if required, one of our team will visit your site to evaluate the proposed orientation, site access, location of site-connections and any other requirements.
Once you are happy with the proposed design the next step is the ‘Pre-Contract’. This is an initial deposit for preparation work including working drawings, energy rating, BAL rating, site survey and soil report, allowing us to give you fixed costings. Our friendly team will help you every step of the way and keep you informed as to the next steps to ensure your building experience is as efficient and hassle-free as possible.
This information is required to finalise working drawings and confirm all aspects of pricing.
3 — CONTRACTS/PERMITS
Once drawings are complete, we will lodge your town planning application with the local council (if required). Next, we will arrange a colours & specifications meeting with our colour consultant. Our colour consultant will help you add life to your home using our beautiful range of interior and exterior colours, surface finishes, floors and more.
Once planning permission has been received and specifications have been finalised we will draft contracts for signing. Following contracts being signed we will apply for the building permit through your nominated building surveyor.
Our admin team will complete the planning application for you and submit it to the council. We will also be in regular contact with the council to ensure the planning process is completed as quickly as possible.
Once the building permit has been issued, the construction phase starts at our Stratford facility. This phase generally takes between 8 – 10 weeks. Our customer care team will provide you with regular updates on the progress of your home and you are welcome to call in at any time to see your new home taking shape.

4 — CONSTRUCTION
Our production team will construct your new home to approximately 95% completion with a few minor aspects left to finalise onsite. In the weeks prior to the construction phase being finalised our site team will prepare the footings and connections on your site and prepare the home for delivery.
In the last 4 – 6 weeks we will add the finishing touches to your new home along with any additional verandahs or optional extra’s you may have chosen. Together, we will make an inspection of the home to check all details are completed before delivery. Your new home is now ready to move into for many years of enjoyment!
5 — DELIVERY
At approx. 95% completion, your home is delivered to site and installed on prepared foundations. After delivery, decks, carports and other optional extras are installed. Anchor Homes normally arranges the connections to services and the installation of floor and window coverings.
We make a final inspection of the home to check all details are completed to your satisfaction. Then
the home is handed over to you along with the Certificate of Occupancy. This stage generally takes approx. 4–6 weeks.
