Kit home inclusion lists are on every provider web site, but can vary considerably, depending on whether you purchase a kit 'to lockup' or a 'full kit'. On this page I list and explain basic kit home inclusions to each of three stages. Stage three means the entire house and fittings can be
supplied to completely build your own home kit and more importantly, to
be your own contractor.
This list will take the stress and guesswork out of

Stage one: 'to lockup'
Multiple sets of council plans & specifications
A set of construction plans & specifications, including an accessories schedule
Engineers certification covering all structure aspects of the building including detailed set-out drawings showing all hold down requirements
Delivery costs (one semi-trailer load, plus a flatbed truck)

manifest handy to check off the components as they hit the ground.
The inclusion components come in 2-3 deliveries, when you need them to build your own home kit.
