Wondering what actually needs to happen to transform your empty block into a beautiful new home? In the latest episode of our new podcast, we reveal all, along with helpful tips on how you can stay fully informed throughout the build process.


A lot goes into building a home from the ground up, and unless you’re on-site every day, you won’t get to see every moment happen. As a result, it’s all too easy to feel uncertain about what's actually going on.

In Episode Five of our new podcast, we clear up the confusion by taking you step by step through the various stages of your home’s build, so you know exactly what takes place when, and how long each stage typically lasts.

To guide you on the journey, host Caitlin Judd is joined by two Carlisle Homes’ building experts with years of experience bringing customers’ homes to life – Operations Manager Mariah Barnes, and Construction Manager Glen Dunstan. Along the way, they will also share must-know construction insights, including the meaning of common building jargon, the best way to navigate the approvals process, and how to stay in the loop about the progress of your build using Carlisle’s handy online tools.


In Episode Five, two Carlisle experts explain the building process from beginning to end, so you know exactly what to expect during the construction of your new home.
