Frequently Asked Questions
With every big decision there are big questions and when you buy a house, they sometimes feel unsurmountable, but not to worry, we've done some of the hard work for you.
We have listed below some of the questions and answers to our most commonly asked questions. If you have a question that is not answered here, please contact us.
Where can I view a display home?
Our first display home is situated on Russell Island
in Queensland which is about 2.5 hours (car & ferry) from Brisbane CBD. Inspections are by appointment only and you can book yours from here
How much does the Genesis 1+1 cost to have completed on my land?
The base price is $118,000 (inc. GST). This includes everything except transportation to your site, council costs, site preparation, utilities installation & connection, any legal or finance fees and crane hire if required. Depending on where you want your Genesis 1+1 located, there may be additional installation costs.
What do I need to do once I've ordered?
You will need to ensure your land is ready to receive the house. This usually entails getting soil tests, boundaries, utilities distance and council approvals. We will send you a checklist when you're ready to order.
Can I order one now?
Yes, you can order now
for the next production batch.
How long will it take for me to receive my order?
Usually around 6 - 8 weeks from deposit taken.
How long will it take to install once on my land?
One to two weeks depending on your site.
How much is the deposit and are there installments?
The deposit is $12,000 which needs to be received before your order can proceed to production. There are no installment payments as the house is completed within a reasonably short time. However, the balance must be paid before delivery and installation.
What happens if I don't go ahead with my order after making a deposit?
We will refund 50% of the deposit, no questions asked.
Will I need council approval?
SCH modules are under 60sqm and in some areas, this may mean you don't need council approval. Best bet to to call your local council and ask... it may be a lot easier than you think. If required, we can do this for you for a small additional fee.
Does SCH provide finance?
Yes, we have partnered with financiers who specialise in modular housing. For more information contact us
Can I customise my Genesis 1+1?
Our homes are WYSIWYG designs (What you see is what you get). We do not customise in the factory but once it is on your land you can customise it to your heart's content.
