Re: Knockdown rebuild in Ryde - shortlisted builders2

I am starting my knockdown rebuild in Ryde and still shopping around builders. After talking to over a dozen of them, from the largest Metricon to the small Austec, I have narrowed down to:
Better Built Homes - Have paid the tender fee $1200, waiting for the soil test and contour to be conducted. Some comments in the forum saids BBH is similar priced as Hall & Hart. I am a bit scared as I quoted with HH before and it was over my budget.
King Homes - Very pleasant consultation experience with Nadia in the last two weeks, service wise and price wise. The only concern is that King is a young company with only 6 year in the market, and only a couple of houses under building in Ryde.
Rawson - I read some comments about their fixed price policy and had their estimate quote within my budget. The salesperson brokedown the site cost in detail for me and promised it should be lower after the contour. Though, the estimate site cost is 100K, including knockdown, cut & fill, tiger tails, narrow street access, standard connections, etc everything
Just be careful with one of the builders you selected there. I have a friend who is building with them and the quality is very poor.
If you like, PM me your email and I'll send you some photos. I have been helping my friends out to try and resolve some of the worse structural issues.
I dont want to post publicly with names etc

We are currently building with King homes and while it is early days, its been a good experience.
We have seen some builders quote lots of site extras such tiger tails, material handling etc which may be excessive or not even required. Get an independent certifier or home expert to look at your contract or tender contract.
