I cant help regarding the costs (we're not at that stage yet) but I live in Newcastle so I'm curious where you're building on such a huge block and who with?
Curiosity killed the cat right
edited - I just did a search of your posts and found that you've already posted about McDonald Jones homes - so are you building with them?

We have decided to build with McDonald Jones Homes and now are in the process of culing things we don't really need from the quote to help pay for the site cost's.
We bought a 2000sqm block in Medowie. It will be a huge change as we have sold up in Sydney's inner west from a terrace on 90sqm.
We have decided on the Chesterfield Grande Elite. We have spoken to a few people who have built with them and have been really happy with their service and quality.
Building a new home is new to us and so far the cost just keep comingand coming. Going to have to sweet talk the broker tommorow
