Amazing home building experience

We built our house with Carlisle EasyLiving and our overall experience with them has been really great. The best part was that most home designs came with all the inclusions that you would normally require to live in a house, unlike other builders. The house was complete within 3 months, without compromising on the quality of the build. If I happen to build another house, I will not look for any other builder than Carlisle.

Positive experience with a reliable builder

Our experience with Carlisle is very positive so far. The moment we stepped into their display home, we knew it was the perfect house design for us, that was also within our budget. We are thankful for the team and support assigned to us - they're very patient in answering all our questions. Overall, the team from Carlisle delivers well and we are grateful that this experience has been very good and smooth for us.

Carlisle Homes redefined perfection!

From A to Z, Carlisle took care of things for me very well. I had complete peace of mind having them build my first home & I knew I was right! The colour selection process was smooth and the sales rep was very helpful and cheerful. I received a very high class build and after-build support was great too. I'd build with Carlisle again without a doubt!

How long will my house plan take to build?

Carlisle Homes does its best to ensure that every step of the process is straightforward and transparent to our clients. Three phases are included in the building of our house plans:

The pre-site phase

The construction phase

The warranty phase

The pre-site phase is the finalising of your house plans. During this time, you can choose the look and finishes you think will best fit your new home. You may also be asked to sign some official documents during this period. In the meantime, our team will acquire any necessary loan approvals and permits.

The next phase, construction you can monitor this process through Carlisle Connect and expect to have the keys to your new home in your hand by the end.

Finally, the warranty phase begins. As you move into this next stage of home ownership, we put you in charge of the warranty process by introducing our new Home Care App. 

Our Home Care app enables you to raise any warranty requests you may have, at a time and place that suits you. Use your computer or smart device to submit items with photos so we can guide you through the warranty process. 

There’s no need to make an appointment. No pressure to remember all your questions at once. Use the portal at any time you wish, from 14 days after the handover of your new home.
