Most major builders won't, just keep looking you'll find one ,your best chance is private gumtree Facebook etc I guess my main concern with using a random builder is things potentially going wrong, etc. We will be getting the building independently inspected during the process so hopefully that's e...

We're currently building near Brighton beach with Oakford homes and have found them pretty good. They can do split level too (they had a split level display home in blackwood). They do full custom, but you can also take one of their designs and modify it to suit. We're currently building a modified...
Thanks betterman. Did you go to Oakford with a custom design or modify one of theirs. I have spoken to a couple of thei...

how much fall are we talking here? if its <2m its not anything huge, and most builders will be able to cut/fill/retail to handle it. If its more than your looking at potential split level. Take note that flat slab on a cut/fill/elevated block is easier for builders so they will first try explore th...
Thanks so much for your response! We are looking at total 5m fall from right to left across. We’re definitely thinking ...

To close this off for anyone interested, in the end I submitted an application to the NBN as the developer. They asked for the plans for the leadin which ai had to obtain from the builder and send through and about 6 weeks later, My house was available in to connect to the NBN through any ISP.

I have a sloping site so am interested in a pole frame build but haven’t been able to find many builders in Adelaide that build this way. From searching online it looks like Kookaburra Homes and Selecta Homes are options, but would appreciate suggestions of other builders, particularly from anyone w...

Thanks for the feedback. I use Aussie Broadband myself and have been impressed with their service. Their online service checker doesn’t show my house (or the vacant block next door) but does show the house two blocks down which was built a few years ago. This house is rented and the tenants tried a ...

I was originally going to build with Rivergum but my site was quite difficult and after months or delays and going back and forth over a period of months in the end they were unable to provide a quote _ I think they put it in the too hard basket. They may have been better on a simpler site that is f...

Hi. I am looking to build in Adelaide on a sloping site using lightweight construction - mainly for cost reasons. I am aware of Sarah Homes and Rivergum who build in this way and are moderately priced but was interested in any other recommendations as I have dealt with both previously and not been e...
