Our homes are priced to the lowest cost possible with the available designs and options by way of wholesale pre-sets. This is one of the reasons why we can offer you such a low cost and save you tens of thousands of dollars and still provide the security of a 50 YEAR STRUCTURAL GUARANTEE.

2. Sundancer Homes is an online only and customer self-serve orientated builder, we are unable to offer face to face or telephone conversations or appointments. All of our work is done conveniently online via the website or email saving you tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary overhead costs.

3. All initial quotations are based on the original design and may require adjustment in consultation with the Owner only if requested by Council or the approving private certifier for compliance purposes.

4. The positioning & size of the dwelling will be subject to a final contour survey and council approval at the time of lodgement for assessment.

We have allowed for tank or street recycled water, fluorescent light fittings, AAA rated toilets, tapware and R1.5 & R2 insulation.
