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!

Frequently asked questions

How much does a single storey house cost to build?

A Carlisle Homes single storey house can cost between $263,900 and $418,900, approximately.

What suburbs do Carlisle Homes build in?

Carlisle can build beautiful new homes anywhere in Melbourne and Geelong. However, we can only offer our knockdown rebuild service to particular suburbs. Have a look at our service area to see if you're eligible.

Will I be kept up to date with the build?

The comfort and happiness of our customers is our highest priority. That's why we've developed Carlisle Connect, an interactive online tool that puts our entire process at your fingertips.

With Carlisle Connect, you can monitor the progress of your build as you like, and access resources such as user guides, warranties and manuals, and monitor your financial milestones.

How long does a single storey house build take?

The build time of a Carlisle home can be 7-10 months. However, your time frame will depend entirely on the specifics of your new home. Here's a guide to where the time goes:

  • Pre-site: 10-12 weeks. This is the start of the journey. You'll select and refine your single storey house plan, and sign contracts with us. We'll begin collecting necessary permits and loan approvals.
  • Construction: 16-24 weeks. Construction on your home begins. This part of the process ends with the keys in your hands.
  • Warranty: 4-5 weeks. 3 months after you've settled into your home, we will carry out our Carlisle Homes 100-point Warranty Inspection. If everything is in order and you're happy, the entire process comes to a satisfied close.

If you'd like to know more about each step, we have laid out our build process and timeline for you.
