The art of viewing a display home

Visiting display homes is crucial in the home building process. Seeing a design come to life is the best way of visualising how you will interact with the floor plan and it allows you to see craftsmanship quality and features up close.

We understand that viewing a display home can be time consuming and you’ll want to avoid too many repeat visits, so we have put together our top 5 tips to help you get the most out of our display homes.

  1. Determine the type of home you want
