Sydney is probably the cheapest city in Australia to get floors sanded and finished. Somewhere around $20 per sqm - maybe around $1400. Contact the guys at Alex Lind, they should be able to point you in the right direction


Hi Namtrack, I see you are in the floor sanding profession, can you tell me roughly how long this job would take to complete? how long is it after sealing/lacquering can floors be used? Also I googled Alex Lind, they seem to be a hardware company which sells flooring supplies, can't seem to see on their website that they actually come out and do floor sanding.

Hi all,

We are in the process of purchasing a rental property which has the ugliest floral carpet known to man! The current owners have told us there are floorboards under the carpet that can be sanded and sealed. 2 bedrooms have already been done. We need to do an average 3 bed house which includes 1xlounge room, 1x formal dining, 1 small bedroom, 1x kitchen with dining area, 1 x hallway. 2 other bedrooms have already been sanded back and polished.

Can anyone tell me a rough price for this to be done by a professional? we have never tackled this before so thinking we should leave it to a professional.

Has anyone costed sanding/sealing verses new carpet/underlay? Which way would be cheaper?

Thanks in advance :)

Ended up pulling out after talking to aeveral builders because of the high site costs on the block. Managed to get out deposit back from allworth just before they sent the guy out to do the quote. Didn't want to take the risk of blowing our budget so found an established house last weekend and bought it. Still love the harmony entertainer....maybe one day down the track well build it but right now can't waut to move into our new place in a few weeks :) Good luck to you all with your builds and hope your new homes turn out even better than expected :)

We have a P class slab and had 80lm allowance, we had quitebablot of fill as our land used to be a musket garden, so lots of lovely soil. We ended up with 60lm extra piering, we have a 600mm step through the middle of the house, instead of DEB, it still ended up having piers averaging over 2m. This is for a two storey, so not sure if it makes a difference. We were up for about 4k in extra piering costs.


Ouch Gogo...this is what i'm fearing! and since we are on quite a tight budget i'm worried it could blow out big time.

I'm guessing if we don't have DEB then we will have to retain the 850mm fill they have to move to the back to make slab level also. Where the 850mm of cut and fill (fill part) is, will be on top of 3 meters of fill already so wonder if that means the piers at the back corner of the house area will be at least 3.85 meters deep plus what they have to go into the natural soil....all i can see is a money pit in these darn pier holes...grrrrrrrrrr

We have had 3 quotes back so far, Masterton and Coral Homes quoted using DEBeams but Provincial quoted using cut and fill only. The costs for the drop edge beams were similar at $8k from both MH and Coral.

We have purchased a block of land 500sqm at Mulgoa Rise (currently in cooling off period) which we have a geotech report which shows approx 1.4m fall diagonally across block and fill varying in depths from 1-3 meters deep (all in our building footprint. Mostly 2 1/2 to 3 over magority of block with a H1 class slab required.We are looking at building a 26ish square single story home so covers most of the block.

Questions...now we have been quoted a fixed price for 80 lineal metres of piers, then after the 80 metres we pay per lineal metre over quoted, but I'm guessing we would need way more than this since there is so much fill. It is a new estate and the report is 1 year old so not sure of compaction. Would each pier have to be dug through the level of fill then into the natural ground so far? Or just a meter or so into the fill? I'm worried this is going to cost a fortune and we won't know this till it's too late and the contract signed and we are stuck with huge extra costs. Should we run while we can or am I worried for no reason?

My block is pretty flat and not much fill on the block, they need to cut 250mm from the back of the block for the front of the house.

My block ended up being an M class slab so got myself some funds back.

I would recommend trying to push them for a 150 day tender period you give yourself some insurance in case of delays that can occur throughout the process.

Thanks for the hint on the 150 day tender period. Will be pushing hard for that for sure. We have built twice before and both times got caught up in council which ended up with price rises both times round and lots of stress about it. We have a couple of other builder tenders coming back this weekend (free ones) so hopefully we will get an idea about what sort of money we will be up for. Good to compare a few builders to get a more accurate idea.

Well just back after paying our $500 for our tender. Took ages to go through all my changes and wants but hopefully we have remembered everything. Looking forward to getting the tender back. I'm a tad worried about the site costs since we have 2-2/12 meters of fill over most of the block and also a fall of over 1 metre....oh and a H1 slab so fingers crossed it will still come in under budget.

Really happy with the house plans after all our changes and with the offer of carpet, tiling, air conditioning and 900 omega appliances included its a good deal.

Shame they haven't built any Harmony Entertainers yet so we could see one and get a feel for it.

I just moved into our Allworth Harmony, we had a really good experience with Allworth- our house was finished a month before the scheduled contract time. The only extras we had during building were for piering and fill for the site, things that were marked provisional. We got some credits back as well, but our extras were just under $6000.

We paid for the oven & microwave tower, I can't remember exactly how much extra it was- but it was definitely under $1000 (much less I think), we literally only moved in on Saturday so all my paperwork is in a box somewhere....

We are so pleased with the finish of our house (a friend visited and they thought the finish on our place was better than what they saw in the display homes). We only paid for a handful of upgrades- benchtop, oven tower, sliding doors between our lounge & living room, the garage door, we added drawers to our bathroom & ensuite vanities as well, there's nothing I'd change!

Thanks for the help all. Wow Bex80....how exciting for you to have your new home finished, you must be very happy indeed.

I too want the microwave/appliance cupboard/pot drawer tower (is this what you got)? Will be very happy if it comes in under a thousand dollars. Looks very practical indeed.

We got a quote today (more an rough calculation) to add a meter right through and flip the front of the house, extend the kitchen, bigger portico (council requirement) bigger walk in linen, extra linen and bigger alfresco...came in at 20k. Pretty happy with that as will give us a nice size home with the perfect layout for us.

How is the standard carpet and tile range in the included package? I'm guessing it will be very basic and will have to upgrade?

Bex, did you upgrade doors and handles? Any idea on prices of these?

Glad to hear good comments on allworth, looking forward to sorting out my list of NEEDS and WANTS and paying for my tender :)

Hi all,

We have deposited on a block in Mulgoa Rise (Part of Glenmore Park) and are looking at the Allworth Harmony Entertainer which is new design. A variation of the standard Harmony home.

Questions we have before paying our $500 to get a quote which the office lady doesn't know are:

As the home includes very basic inclusions as standard we would like to know a rough cost to upgrade the bricks to something nicer (looked at the brick websites at our allowed range and they are puke)!,The front door to one of the big modern Hume doors with nice big handle.

Also we love the Microwave/appliance cupboard/pot drawers tower and would like to know how much this upgrade costs if anyone knows?

Any other upgrade prices you know off hand after building your harmony would be helpful too.

Hope there's someone out there who can help me with my questions :)

Hi there,

DH and myself went out to view the Lakesview release at The Ponds today and quite liked it. As we are not from around this area (from Glenmore Park) we aren't too familiar with the area at all but the location seems good at first glance. Can any locals please confirm will this be a good location and can you see this being a good area? We are in our 40's and have an 18 year old son who will be living with us (so playgrounds, schools etc aren't important) however he does need access to either the T-Way or a station to make his way into the city for uni four days a week. I noticed the t-way and also Rouse Hill shopping centre are very close at the junction to of Schofields and Windsor Roads which looks good for our needs and is just around the corner. Also Schofields station is close too. Not sure what this station is like or the frequency of trains so opinions would be grateful on this also. DH works at Smithfield and we would like to know what driving there would be like too....he works week about day and afternoon shifts. Guess we need to decide asap to pay a deposit on this block so any suggestions or opinions would be fabulous.

Thanks in advance,
Annette

Does anyone know the cost to upgrade the kitchen cupboards to Silk finish for the Monte Carlo. Also to add drawers to the kitchen instead of cupboard doors?


We just had our colour selection appointment and opted to change the bottom cupboards to draws so I can answer the question for you.

The cost is $250 per bank of cupboards.
Hope it helps

Thanks for that. Any idea of the cost to upgrade the kitchen cupboard doors to either silk finish or shiny laminate? oh and soft closing drawers and door prices?

Annette, good luck, you need to be happy with what you are doing. 50K in site costs is over the top. But then Eden Brae wanted to charge us over 20K additional site costs when with wisdom we have only a 20cm cut/fill and no additional site costs.... its a shame we won't get to see you about but I wish you and your family the best... have fun looking for your new family home :-)

Cass

Thanks Cass.

Must say i am looking forward to our next move. We only intended staying around Penrith till our youngest had finished his HSC so he's just about to do that so it's time to make a move. Less commuting for both the kids and my husband so that will be good. So we are busy getting a few things done around the place to get it ready to put on the market. Fingers crossed it sells quick and doesn't drag on too long. Im a very tidy person but it's hard to keep the house perfect with 3 males in the house....grrrrr.

Will still pop on this thread and see how you are all progressing and even walk by some of your builds as we are only around the corner from there till we move. :)

Hi All, just wanted to let you all know that we have changed our minds on building at glenmore ridge. We were shocked to see the total of the site costs with Eden Brae which were around $50,000....absolute rip off! Another thing we weren't happy with was the build time and as we had only planned to stay for a year or so we have decided to put our house on the market within the next couple of months and move to the hills district. So we have been spending our weekends over that way looking for a new area to move to. Wish we could build somewhere over that way but the land is so expensive unless we head to Kellyville or The Ponds. So looks like we will be buying an established home around Castle Hill or Baulkham Hills area. Looking forward to moving to another suburb after living in Penrith all my life :)
I will still pop in and follow this blog as I love to watch families dream homes come together. Good luck to each and every one of you and happy building :)

Annette that is great news.. so does that mean that you will now be closer to us? Do you know what street you will be in. The Foxley is such a nice design! Keep us posted!!!!!

Yes Cass we will be closer to you. It's on Glenmore Ridge Drive. Right next door to someone elso who's on this site but i can't seem to find them. They are 209 and we are lot 210. I just hope that street won't be too busy a street as it links our area and the new area together. Will only be staying a year or so once built so shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Yes we liked the foxley on display at Gregory Hills but when we seen the alternative layout which gives us a huge walk in pantry (3.5mtrs long), bigger WIR in the main and also a WIR in bed 2 we were delighted. With a few changes, upgrades and extending the rear of the house all the way across it should be very suitable.

When i get 2 mins i will scroll back through the posts and find out who our lucky neighbours are going to be :P

Hi All, thought i would pop back in to this thread and see how everyone's progressing. We have pulled out of our original block for a few reasons and have now paid $750 to Eden Brae to have a tender put together on Lot 210 which is on hold with Eden Brae. We are looking at building the Foxley 27 cnr design with a few alterations. Our tender appointment is on the 1st September and as this block is already registered (unlike the last one) the process will hopefully be much quicker. Eden brae are going to use comply and development 10 day turnaround for approval and have promised us to start soon after this approval and not have to wait for the current date which they are quoting which is a Feb next year start. So as long as the tender comes back at a price within our budget it will be all systems go.

Glad to see you all progressing and hope you are all enjoying the process this far :)
