Here are some frequently asked questions with answers that may help you out:

  • Your onsite Electrical appointment
  • Your Kitchen colour selection
  • Your Wall and Floor tiling.

Q: How long does it take to build our home?
A: We envisage our build times to be;

  • Single Storey – 25 weeks       
  • Spilt Level – 30 weeks   
  • Double Storey – 30 weeks up to 40 squares

Q: What is your progress payment structure?
A: Once we are on site the progress payment structure is as follows;

  • Slab/Base
  • Frame
  • Brickwork
  • Plasterboard delivered
  • Final balance at Settlement.


  • Taylormade Residential allows a basic electrical plan and layout. If you wish to upgrade adding extra lights, GPO’s etc, then I ask you to speak directly with my electrician onsite at rough in stage as he will charge / invoice you direct saving the builder’s margin.
  • Taylormade Residential allows a melamine kitchen with 20mm stone bench tops. When you go to select your colours for the kitchen, you can also speak with our Kitchen Company for any upgrades e.g. polyurethane doors, self-closing draws etc, paying them direct and again, saving on the builder’s margin.
  • Taylormade Residential allows a standard builder’s range for your wall and floor tiles. When you select your tiles and would like to upgrade then you can do so and pay the tile company direct saving you the Builder’s margin.
  • These are just a few beneficial ways of helping you save a little more and enjoying those extra finer qualities in your home.

Once we had been introduced to Phil and the team at Taylormade Residential, our ideas came to life! From our first meeting, through to the drafting and contracts we had a great experience. We were building on a major slope, and despite the complications that added, our new home was built beautifully, to plan and importantly on budget. Their process gave us confidence as we went into some detail, took their advice along the way and that meant no surprises.
We were always kept up to date and the whole team from the office to the site, were always helpful and responsive.

I’m loving my Taylormade Residential built home! I took some time working through a number of prospective builders before deciding on Taylormade Residential. For me, an open, honest and transparent relationship was of prime importance, and then getting to discuss what I wanted incorporated in my build followed. Phil Taylor was the right choice, he listened, explained and guided me through the processes around my concepts and what could be achieved…..all with a budget in clear focus, every step of the way.

We have been so busy with moving in ,We haven't had the chance to say THANK YOU. We could not be happier. I know I was a bit stressed in at the start but you told me it would be ok and that it will all come together and it did.

Taylor Made Residential have done an absolutely amazing job on our brand new home. We could not be happier with the service they provided. As a company they were polite and courteous as well as extremely knowledgeable.


Michael and Rita Di Rienzo

To Phil and the Taylormade Team we would like to formally thank you and congratulate you for delivering our dream home. From the whole process of knock down to design and rebuild a high level of service was provided. The initial design work provided by Sam was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble even though we kept changing our minds. She took our ideas and offered practical advise with professionalism and patience. The tradespeople were friendly, approachable and always eager to be of assistance whilst providing a high level of workmanship. Phil you always maintained a calm presence throughout the build and we valued your advice throughout. We are extremely happy with our home and have no hesitation in recommending Taylormade Residential to our family, friends or anyone who may be thinking of building.
