We are building an Advantage range house, it might be different when you build a Prestige, perhaps they are included in the base price.
However, I would imagine that you would still be charged for a ledge. We have 2 in our house design and they charged us handsomely for the privilege.
They are charging for the ledge. 232 for plaster and 600 for the stone. The stone would be confirmed at tender.
On a different note how different were your costs at tender as compared to the quote that you received.
Then we got to tender we found the costs were close to what we had been quoted by our Sales Consultant.
However, our tender was a couple months after we had been handed onto our BC. We had researched a number of things and wanted them included in our tender, unfortunately our BC didn't add anything additional we had asked for so those items were not present during our tender appointment.
This meant that we had to go back for a second tender while our tender presenter found out the costs for all the extra structural changes we wanted done.
We did a lot of research on PD pricing and found out costs for as many items as we could, which meant that we were well prepared for their costs at tender. The only thing that caught us out was the Slab. Apparently we have problematic soil in our lot, so they upgraded our Slab to a P-H2 which added more to the tender price than we expected.
Other than that, we went home feeling confident that we had all the structure sorted and knew what we had left in our budget for the WOS upgraded.
I might add, that our research into PD pricing did show up the fact that our sales consultant didn't know exactly how much to include for our WOS upgrades. He was almost spot on with the structural, but a mile off with all the frilly stuff that WOS sell you.
Example being ...... He included $5K allowance for electrical (we spent $20), he included $4K allowance for colourtec to kitchen, Galley, Laundry and 4x bathrooms (cost was actually $18K)
So my advice would be to trust your sales consultant for things like shifting walls and adding in extra doors and windows or niches into bathrooms. However they are not very accurate when it comes to Colourtec, tapwear, electrical requirements, etc.
Hope this helps
