Three ways to build your dream home with ZAC Homes

One thing we’ve learnt from building hundreds of homes throughout Sydney and beyond is that every home is slightly different. Some people want to move quickly and build a home just like the display, while others want to develop their own custom design.

That’s why at ZAC Homes we divide our services into three distinct types:

  • Fast Track – off-the-plan design
  • My Style – modify an existing design
  • Tailored Approach – custom design with complete flexibility.

There are pluses to each of these. Read on to learn more…..

“Being able to see exactly how your home will look by visiting a display home like ZAC Homes displays at Marsden Park and Box Hill is invaluable.”

Fast Track with an off-the-plan design

Fast track is the fastest path to build, with the quickest turn-around time of our three services, typically taking two weeks to complete the Contract.

Being able to see exactly how your home will look by visiting a display home like ZAC Homes displays at Marsden Park and Box Hill is invaluable. You and your family can see the dimensions and layout of a floor plan and gauge how it matches your lifestyle. You can also inspect the workmanship and quality of finishes, and touch, test and inspect all aspects of your new home.

Display homes also allow you to compare upgrades and inclusions in the fittings and finishes, and to see paint colours, tile options, kitchen surfaces and more.

ZAC’s Fast Track process uses standard designs where the changes can be kept to under 30%, which saves on customisation costs and allows us to provide a faster and more affordable service.

You can add more of your individual style to your new home with fixtures and finishes, as well as being able to choose from the many designs and facades offered.

Make your own modifications with My Style

You can choose one of the many ZAC Homes designs and modify it to suit your family’s lifestyle, block and budge, changing up to 60% of the standard ZAC plan.

There are many ways you can customise the standard plans and make them stand out from the crowd.

You can make small changes like the addition of special light fittings, an island bench in the kitchen, or a butler’s pantry.

You could also make larger changes like an altered floor plan to create extra living space. If the standard floor plan doesn’t quite fit your needs, we’re happy to work with you to alter the floor plan with minimal structural changes to the overall design.

You could consider enclosing part of an open-plan living space to create an extra room to work from home. Sliding doors can be a great option because you can leave them open to get the open-plan feel most of the time and then only close them when you need.

Perhaps add a skylight to your new home for a little bit of extra natural light, or some additional windows or different size windows depending on the aspect of your new home.

A popular way to distinguish your home from a neighbourhood of similar new homes is to change the façade. You can also experiment with different paint colours on the front door or a custom door handle.

“Craft a design that is perfect for your lifestyle and block.”

Tailored Approach for complete flexibility

If you want full flexibility with the design of your new home then you can work with our experienced in-house designers to craft a design that is perfect for your lifestyle and block.

Our designers will work with you and your family to make your vision for your new home come to life.

You will have a much greater choice of fittings and fixtures based on what suits the design.

Having complete flexibility also allows you to include sustainability as a key design element. There are many ways a home can be sustainable including the materials used, the design, the inclusions, and more.

Going with our Tailored Approach option will take longer, you’ll have more decisions to make, and it will generally be more expensive, but you’ll have a one-off home to suit your needs.

Our designers can work with almost any site, although an undulating site will require careful and considered design, suitable construction techniques and most likely increased costs.

We have just started our building journey with ZAC homes. We have chosen to build with ZAC homes as they have allowed flexibility with the design, resulting in a better usage of the living and bedroom spaces. Other companies had a rigid design which would have resulted in variation fees.


…ZAC Homes kept us regularly up to date with the progress of our home and the job was finished on time, which was very important to us. We are one hundred percent happy with our home and can thoroughly recommend ZAC Homes and their crew to anyone contemplating building a home.

…Firstly I would like to thank the ZAC homes team for the experience that my wife and I have had when making the purchase of an investment property. The professionalism and dedication that was displayed, was by far the best that we have seen or experienced previously.

Bob F.

I can not speak more highly of this local building company. Right from the beginning they have been excellent to deal with…The finishes were very good and any work that I wanted fixed which was minor things was done


Very well managed with no hidden cost or surprises. Workmanship was excellent and very professional


Really pleased with the building process, communication and designs. Would definitely recommend.

The customer service and assistance was superb with quick turn around times and patience with our queries. Everything from initial consultation, to colour selection to hand-over was organised easily and open communication was maintained throughout the process.
