Just thought I'd update this post. Clarendon decided on Friday that our soil test came back E and they don't build on E soil- which I never knew since when I asked how much to go from H2 to E I was told 10k, as I knew it was a possibility. They are also saying I can't have my full deposit back. Just...

Hey That's the one room I'm not a fan of size wise. We also thought of changing the windows to two smaller ones and the Tv on that external wall. We changed it back to normal as it meant the couch would have had to have been closer to the tv if we did it that way. So we went with the length option a...

I just approved you now. It's heaps easier to chat in there I find. Oh cool! This is our first build too. We have a parkhill on display in Sydney. I'll share some pics of it in the fb group. The mango hill one is styled so much better. We are the same trying to get it all done as fast as we can. Ye...
Agree @rebekah the Sydney colour studio is far more superior than QLD's one. However talking to our colour rep today wh...

Facebook group would be great! We are building in Thornlands on the Southside. We have been up to Mango Hill to look at the Parkhill there and also dropped into Newport. Great area. We too have two little ones (Girls - 6 and 3) and this will be our first build. It is looking like Clarendon can get ...

Rebekah, i've just clicked join on that FB group. I just added someone to the Clarendon group, I think it's you. Hope it's something that can help us all.

Hey Rebekah, Yes, I am building in Newport. What a coincidence. ;-) The latest i heard was our land will not be settled until Dec. We were given a Nov to March timeline so I am happy with Dec if that goes ahead. Your land must be from an earlier land release. Are you dealing with the same consultan...
Hey! How funny. I thought you might have been when you said land was delayed. Ours is stage 17. We put a deposit down i...

Those tiles are great! Especially like the first one. Are these from the Silver or Gold range? We have to pick from the Silver range and like you guys have all said they leave a lot to be desired so I see a tiling upgrade for us :) Thanks. The first one is my fav. Second is hubbies. Haha. Mine migh...

We looked at He range at Beaumont too. Narrowed it down to 2 tiles that we liked. https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/79209_1502881019.JPG https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/79209_1502881050.JPG We will look into upgrading but I'm not sure what cost that would be and if we can afford it.

Hey! We are building in Newport, is that a similar area to you? Our land has just been bumped back from a sept registration to November. Hoping it's not further than that! I agree we are fans of the tucked away stairs. Love the idea of not making a feature of them. We also added a door to the front...

How is everyone going with colours?? We are getting there. Decided to finalise our exterior so it can be submitted to stocklands for covenant approval prior to our land registering to save some time. Which we seem to have soooooo much of thanks to such a long wait for our block. So we are thinking B...

Hi fellow Parkhill People!, So we have decided on the Parkhill 29. We are in the process of going to tender and are just waiting on a few extra costings. We are just waiting on estimates for moving a wall 500mm in one of the bedrooms to make it bigger, and are entertaining the idea of closing in th...
We are doing the cornerless stacking doors with recessed tracks. The tracks have a track just for flyscreens so you can...

Hello Everyone, We have also chosen the design of Clarendon Parkhill in 34, building in northeast Brisbane. Like elleimac here, we did love the idea of having the staircase tucked away behind the kitchen. We got our quote after listing all our "must have's" and shied away when we got the ...

Hi All We're building a Parkhill up in Gold Coast! And Rebekah, we're from Sydney and moving up to QLD so we're doing it all from here too!! A bit of history. We purchased our land back in September and their sales pitch was it would be ready by December 2016 but the land only finally registered en...
Ohh wow! How exciting! It's a bit tricky doing it all from here isn't it. We just keep visiting the parklea displays an...

Cool. The parkhill was 239k start price I think. So we are up 60k with convenant requirements, and some extra council fees based on a H slab. I'm more than happy to answer any questions, this is our first build too. After hand over we are doing all outside. Drive, landscaping and air con. We got the...

Hi Oh cool. I didn't look at Metricon very well as they were a bit out of our budget. We have come in at 299k for our tender. Inc a 3k shower and 7k in stacker doors plus a few other extras. Metricon was about the 300k mark before we had added anything. The service we have had with Clarendon has bee...

Hi all, First time posting here but have been reading along. We will be building a Clarendon parkhill 29 in Brisbane at the end of the year once our land is ready. Just wondering if anyone had build one before and has any tips? So far we have added a shower to the downstairs powder room, and a door ...
