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 ...

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...

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 bough...

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...
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. ...

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.

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 insur...
Thanks for the hint on the 150 day tender period. Will be pushing hard for that for sure. We have built twice before an...

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 ...

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 w...

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 i...

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 lo...

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 ...

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 w...

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 ...

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...
