3 Reasons To Consider A New Home Lock-up Package

If you are building a new home, you might be talking about all of the options available to you. One term you might have heard often is a lock-up package. This means the builder gets your home to the stage where it is weatherproof, and the doors and windows lock to keep intruders from gaining access to the home. All of the interior projects like flooring, insulation, cabinetry and painting are up to you. In some cases, this might be more work then you want to take on. However, there are advantages to be considered, such as:

Saving Money

If you are handy around the house and own the correct tools, a lock-up home allows you to minimize the cost of contractors. In some cases, you might be able to negotiate a lower price on materials with a family friend, including paint, fixtures and tile. A lot of the needed tasks require a minimum of skills from painting to installing carpeting. It is just labor intensive. If you have a strict budget, a lock-up package provides you with more square footage at a lower price.

Getting Exactly What You Want

A lock-up package helps you save money overall and frees up your budget to include items to splurge on, perhaps, you dream of marble countertops in the kitchen. By installing them yourself, they may become a viable option. In many cases, the contractor will paint the interior of your home a single colour. A lock-up package allows you to paint each room a different colour or even multiple colours. You will find it easier to get exactly what you want with this type of building project.


When you go with a lock-up building package, you treat yourself to more flexibility from interior design to your timetable. You no longer need to work about building on the contractor’s schedule and can finish projects as you have time available. You will not need to worry about the property getting damaged by rain or adverse condition while you work at your own pace.
