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 can I stay up-to-date on my build progress?

Carlisle Homes prioritises customer satisfaction above all else, meaning that we are ready to do what it takes to ensure you feel involved with every step of the build process. As such, we have created and developed our own app Carlisle Connect, an interactive virtual app through which you can access things like your financial goals, warranties and manuals, and even view user guides.

If you want to see the process of your build broken down step-by-step, be sure to check out our build process and timeline, detailed for your convenience.

How long does it take to build a Carlisle Homes house?

How long does creating a Carlisle Homes luxury house design take? Generally, the average length for a new home build is between 7 and 10 months and consists of three phases: pre-site, construction, and warranty.

Pre-site is when you finalise your home design, sign contracts, and acquire loan approvals and permits (with Carlisle Homes’ assistance if you choose).

Then there’s the construction phase which lasts between 16-24 weeks. You can keep up to date with the building process through our online interactive app, Carlisle Connect. This phase ends with your new home’s keys in your hands.

Finally, the warranty phase begins. As you move into this next stage of home ownership, we put you in charge of the warranty process with the introduction of 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 your 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 handover of your new home.
