We are building a custom version of Grantham 37.5 from Firstyle Homes in Gables, NSW. Ours is approximately 40.3 sq.
I don't see anyone building with Firstyle anymore, but if anyone is, lets please connect to share progress (or delays )

I paid for the 2k deposit & got the tender. We're abit scared as we don't know how this construction sector has been going recently. How did you go with yours? Did you encounter any issues?

There were a few delays, but it wasn't as bad. We are overall happy with Firstyle. Waiting to start the construction, in the last stages of finance approval
I see. Seems like we had a much different experience with them. I really felt the difference regarding their customer service. In the beginning (during enquiries) they are so friendly, nice, patient & accommodating. Still sounded nice after putting in the $2K deposit. However, everything changed after the $15.4K planning & admin fee was deposited.
It was kind of stressful when no one knew what was happening with ours. I had to rock up to the display home to ask about our preliminary plans. The sales person wasn't happy when I went & said appointment must be booked before coming in, but when I tried contacting them there was no response.
We had a long delay in getting the building contract & literally only got a few hours before we had to sign it. We couldn't get out of the contract because we already paid for the land & we were told that we'd lose all of our deposits including the land if we decide to back out.
Just wondering about how you went with colours & electricals? Do you by any chance have some of the price lists for them? We had to ask for some of the info about colours but they didn't give much info just some brochures about bricks, roof tiles & some ceasarstone but no price guides.

Simplest way is to go through their order book and visit current houses under construction, Contact the owner If there is no work, technically they are insolvent
