Once the house has been delivered and installed on new stumps it will be your responsibility to complete reconnection of services including power, water and gas if applicable at your cost. You may also be required by council to upgrade the structure so that it complies with current cyclonic tie down requirements. This typically involves some metal strapping and/or screws installed to provide a continuous engineer specified tie down link from the ground through to the roof sheeting. Energy efficiency measures may be required including installation of insulation and/or ceiling fans etc. The building may require other work depending on its existing condition, level of fit-out or renovation. It’s not easy to estimate a total cost up front but there is a rule of thumb that can be applied to give you a guide as to what to expect. We recommend adding 50% of the delivered and re-stumped price on top to arrive at a reasonable allowance for completion of a house of average condition and quality. So if your house is priced at $80,000 delivered and re-stumped, add 50% (i.e. $40,000) to arrive at $120,000 as your total estimated cost including the house, delivery and completion ready to move in. If your house requires a fair amount of renovation then you will need to allow more than that.
