Project Homes – How Much Do They Cost?

Sep 5, 2018 | Project Homes, Inspiration

Affording a project home

From the onset, one of the major benefits of building a project home if you are first home buyer is the NSW First Home Owners Grant. Aimed at assisting first home buyers and stimulating the construction of new dwellings, the $10,000 grant applies to first home buyers who are building a new property up to the value of $750,000.

With a vast range of our beautiful home designs to choose from, matched with your block of land will secure a total package well under $750,000. The First Home Owners Grant provides an attractive incentive to consider choosing to build a brand-new project home with Mincove Homes.

As well as the First Home Owner’s Grant, one of the most well-known incentives that coincides with building a project home is value for money. With standard designs, volume and bulk prices, project home builders generally hold the ability to offer you costs that other builders simply can’t meet.

As well as competitive costing, Mincove Homes offer you a fixed price tender for your build, ensuring that your budget is met and not exceeded.

Other costs involved in building a project home are influenced by factors including:

The impact your land has on building costs

If you are looking to build on a flat block of land, you will save on many of the costs associated with building on a sloping block.

On sloping blocks, soil depths are relatively shallow, meaning that you are likely to strike rock which can mean costly excavation if required to alter the land to accommodate your home design.

After taking on the challenges of building on sloping sites for almost two decades, our team here at Mincove Homes work with you to map out customisation of your new home, or, offer you carefully planned split-level home designs.

We ensure that the design of your new project home works with your block instead of against it, reducing any unnecessary excavation which generally costs thousands of dollars – before you’ve even started to build!

Other site costs to consider may be levelling the surface or removing greenery and trees. The location of your home can also impact costs based on council or state requirements, as well as factors such as Bushfire Attack obligations.

There will almost always be costs associated with the site, and each site will be different. You can contact our highly-experienced team here at Mincove Homes to discuss your individual site costs and associated options.


Once you have your site cost mapped out, you will be considering the cost of your brand-new project home! At Mincove Homes, we have a variety of beautiful:
