Definitely get a number of quotes which you are doing and compare inclusions. H&H for our build weren't the cheapest but they weren't the most expensive either but we liked the design, and like you, our block was challenging. My experience so far is very good but I can't recommend them yet as w...
Great to hear from you Malibu! How is the build going? We are at the tiling stage and hope to be at PCI in the next few...

Oh I can imagine what a huge outlay is to be buying new for everything. Did you guys manage to get a rental ok? I think HH have taken on lots of builds and going through teething issues with keeping up with all the admin. I remember one of the selling points they kept mentioning was the small numbe...
For us, the increase in builds hasn't had an impact on how much we see or have contact from our SS. We changed to a new...

Hey kjane, Wow your progress is looking great! Your family room looks very light and useful. Regarding landscaping, I would give Guy @ Yardscape a call to at least get a quote, he's done a great job for us, and his quotes were quite reasonable vs some others we received. Building is definitely not ...
Thanks for the landscaping contact, I'll get in touch with them 😊

Hi Zen, great to hear from you and sorry to hear you've had nothing but trouble from all sides. I totally get what you are saying about property prices, they certainly have dropped off. Building is an absolute money pit, to be honest I'm not sure I'd do it again now but we are totally too late to t...
Everyone keeps warning us that the build is going to cost much more than we've budgeted for. You seemed to have a fairl...

Sing out if you want photo's of any particular rooms to help you get an idea of light and dimensions, I have heaps and am happy to share. Fab progress, @kjane! I haven't logged on in a while so seeing your house come up like that has been a treat! Love the external colour scheme you've chosen. Can'...

This looks like elyse 42, is that right? I’m keen to know what people have done with 36/38.... No this is the 38 as a base. We liked the layout of the 42 but preferred the price of the 38 :-D It worked out much more economical to start with the 38 as a base and extend the width a bit and change thi...

Those dimensions are the same dimensions of the theatre but orientation is different: 1 is landscape and the other is portrait. Think how your family uses space or based from your lifestyle, which suits you best. One big space works for us well, furnishing-wise, i think can consume the hallway.😁 Th...

Update on our build. It is all going really well, despite the rain, and we are tracking well to be finished on time. We had a walk through yesterday after the gyprock had been started and staircase put in and it is all turning out how we planned. Kitchen, laundry and bathroom fit outs booked for th...

Hi, We are building in Sydney and need to put a balustrade on one side of our patio. We thought we could do this much later and be able to save some $ for it but we now know that we will need it to get an interim occupation certificate so now need to sort it out ASAP. We had a quote come back this w...

Hi, I Love Love Love the look of the window and mirror splashbacks, but I need some advice from those who have lived with them. How hard are they to keep clean? Are they more expensive/less expensive/same as glass. For windows, what do you look out on (back yard/ garden / plants??) thanks Janelle I...

We received plans today yay!!! Has anyone outsourced an independant company to review your plans? My husband and I have zero experience with building and do not know how to read a plan or what to look for. TIA! Yay for plans. Hope they are what you are after. We didn't hire anyone to look at the pl...

Thanks kjane! More photo's of the facade closer to completion would be great! I remember there was a triangle window in the front bedroom of the display home as I was told this shape cannot be changed, do you know if this is true? It will be hard to find the right window covering for a triangle win...

Hi Amanda, We are building the classic façade Elyse. Happy to post some photos and when the scaffolding comes down a few more as it's a bit hard to see clearly now. We are at the eaves stage with brickwork finished, we still need to have the roof put on the ground floor rooms. We have made a few mod...
