My build has lots of upgrades, which obviously are not factored in the valuation, which I ...

Archipelago is a great design, bloody big house - I am also building with DAH and went with the Wedgewood. I originally also pulled out Flooring and Painting but beware that it can make financing a construction loan more difficult depending on the lender (assuming you need one), so I put them back i...

Depends on your situation, if you’ve got three kids or planning on having in the future I’d leave it as 3 similar sized bedrooms. If this is your forever home then do what works. Also would depend on the area is a four bedroom home more sort after therefore paying a much higher premium than a 3 plu...

I'll follow this, because I couldn't afford the extra 50k+ to build there :-? Keep saving - The second stage (Bushmead South) is only a year or two away and you will have some choice of great blocks.

I can't mess with it too much at this point, but was thinking to reduce the depth of Bed 3 to make it more like a study/spare and increase the depth of Bed 2 and 4 to make them a bit more roomy. I h...

Watch out for build price increases. As soon as the grants was announced, some builders increased their prices by $20k plus. Also check with the builders to ensure you can actually get your slab down this year - there has been a massive surge in sales and you might find there is quite a backlog.

I found a few threads from a few years ago, but more interested to hear any recent opinions and e...
