I have been reading this site lately while researching about the building process with Henley and found this site really helpful. Finally decided to create a login and start a thread for our Journey.
We have moved to Australia recently and have now bought a land in resale for constructing our own house which is due to settle by end of this month. We have been considering few builders (PD, Metricon and Henley) and have till now narrowed down to Henley for constructing Aegean 45. We have paid the initial deposit of $1000 few weeks ago to lock in the price as the prices were due to increase starting this month (which indeed have and have been reflected on the website).
We started with Palace 38 (Collection Series) and then considered Emporio 39 and have finally narrowed down to Aegean 45. We have put in a some upgrades and still finalising on final quote. Till now the experience has been good and we are impressed with the sales team and have received prompt response to all our queries.
Upgrades Included in the initial Quote (in addition to standard Reserve Series Inclusions):
- Increased Ceiling Height
- Front Entry Double Doors
- Spa to Ensuite
- Zoned Heating
- Timber Top Flooring
- Bedroom Downstairs in lieu of Study
- Master to the Rear
- Extended bench in laundry with overheads
- Sound Insulation batts between Floors and Walls
Currently have requested for a structural change to switch the pantry and powder room downstairs
and allow a direct access from Bedroom/Study downstairs to the bathroom downstairs and waiting for the response.
I am starting this thread to get meaningful insights from experienced home owners who have gone through this process and also maintain a diary of our journey.
