Things to Consider When Building A Home for your Family

Things to Consider When Building A Home for your Family

Why Fowler Homes?

For over 28 years, Fowler Homes’ has been building high-quality homes for thousands of
Australian families. We understand building your dream home is one of the biggest
investments of your lifetime.

Getting To Know Your Needs

When starting your building journey we invite you to meet with an experienced Building &
Design Consultant so we can get to know your needs in order to find the perfect floorplan for
your budget, block and lifestyle. A few things to consider!


Have you met with your bank, financial planner or mortgage broker to establish your budget?
Having this figure in mind will assist with determining where you might wish to spend more
and where you might wish to save. Our team will work closely with you to ensure your dream
floorplan is within budget.


Do you have an established or growing family? Once we have a clear understanding of what
you need, our flexible design approach provides you with the ability to customise any of our
floorplans or design your own. We pride ourselves on designing our clients a home that will
grow and evolve with them into the future. Every space is carefully considered to suit your
family’s needs, providing you with a comfortable and relaxed lifestyle. Do you need a
downstairs guest suite for multigenerational living or older relatives? A prayer room? An office
set-up for working from home? Whatever your requirements, our floorplans will meet and
exceed all expectations.


Whether your style is modern, contemporary, classic, Hamptons or French Provincial – we
offer a range of inclusions to suit every taste! During your Internal and External Selections
Appointments, you will have every opportunity to personalise your home to showcase your
personal style. Choosing from a wide range of fixtures, finishes and appliances, our Interior
Designers will inspire and guide you to create spaces in your new Fowler home to be
uniquely your own.
