Building Standards; Getting It Right!
Apr 22, 2018 5:46 pm
i am seeking some advices from ppl who have experiences in building their first home.
i am about to build a house from Homestart, who uses BGC residential for their constructions.
This coming Wednesday, I am visiting their model house to decide on how my new house will be designed and what additional stuff will be included etc.. , as I never had this sort of meetings before, I need some feedback from you ppl about things that i need to aware before I actually decide what to add and that.. any feedback are welcome!! I think i should know basic prices and whether i am being ripped off or not...
The house where my new home will be built is 330m2 and a long driveway that is covered by lawn. Hopefully i get some help from you all. Thanks in advance.
