Procedures - Plantation Homes

As this building game is a new kettle of fish for us – I am sure all of our “newbie build watching friends and family” it must sound like a nightmare (oh the stories)!

We thought we would shed some light on the process... we have completed Stage 1-4. Stage 5 is almost complete all we are waiting on is - Order materials required for construction & Allocate your job to a building supervisor.

These are Plantation Home's procedures of purchase...

Stage 1. The Owners are required to:
- Supply a list of requested variations, including facade choice.

Stage 2. The Owners and Builder are required to:
- The Cosham Interiors colour selection appointment is booked and completed. Weekend appointments are offered, subject to availability.
