..this forum is one of the only key area's where you will get ballpark prices and how things work with any sense of security. Without this place I would not have been able to budget at all for the house build, the whole process prior to contract needs a overhaul. Its not conducive to efficiency.
+1 to this. I think I would have gone insane if it wasn't for this forum!
I noticed in the electrical appt they were able to keep a running tally of what we spent, so obviously they have a price listing for everything already, why can't we have copies of these, even with the usual 'prices are subject to change without notice' legal stuff at the bottom, at least we would have a rough idea. We all know upgrades and changes aren't cheap so I don't thinking hiding these prices has any benefit to it.. It would at least stop people like me constantly chasing prices for things, and maybe allow the BC's to have more time to get things right on the build
