Building process

The core of Carlisle's approach is to ensure that the construction process is straightforward, transparent, and even enjoyable. We are committed to providing complete clarity about what to expect at every stage of the journey. Whether it's pre-site preparation, construction, or warranty, we will guide you through the whole process.

Making it easy with 6 simple steps

Our 6 step process makes building your new home fast and affordable. From setting your budget and securing finance, to selecting your perfect floorplan; through the process of signing contracts and beginning the build, to the day you move in, we have made it easy.


Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to build an EasyLiving home?

At Carlisle Homes, we strive to make the building process transparent and easy for our clients at every step. Typically, the entire process takes 7-10 months and involves three phases: pre-site, construction, and warranty.

During the pre-site phase, you can finalise your house plans and select the colour schemes that best suit your lifestyle. Our team will obtain the necessary loan approvals and permits, while you may need to sign some official documents.

The construction phase typically takes 16-24 weeks, and you can monitor its progress through Carlisle Connect. By the end of this phase, you will receive the keys to your new home.

During the warranty phase, we provide you with our Home Care app, allowing you to submit warranty requests at your convenience using your computer or smart device. You can also attach photos to your requests, and we will guide you through the entire process.

Where does Carlisle Homes build?

We build our range of EasyLiving homes across Melbourne and Geelong from Clyde North to Lara. Check out our build zone map and enter your postcode to see if we can build in your area.

What finance options does Carlisle Homes offer?

We partner with in-house construction finance specialists so that buying a home no longer has to be the most overwhelming decision you'll make. Our specialists provide numerous lending options that help save time and reduce costs, allowing you to move into your new home sooner.

How much does it cost to build an EasyLiving home?

Our EasyLiving homes range between $242,900 for a 16 square single storey home and $429,900 for a 37 square double storey home. At our core, we prioritise maintaining the highest quality standards in our homes whilst also keeping them affordable. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the cost, please don't hesitate to contact us. Furthermore, we provide a fixed price guarantee to ensure that the final cost of your home is transparent and predictable.
