Hello neighbours ,
We have bought a block on Stage 5.
Block is 739 sqm, with a drop of over 4m from kerb to rear fence; we are considering the Georgia Spa by Hickinbotham which is about 275 sqm
We are currently getting prices from builders. Footing prices have ranged from $25K to $60K!
We are just wondering how much people have actually been paying for footings.
Thank you in advance for your responses.

There are way too many possible 'exclusions' from these sorts of quotes and unless you have a very detailed and specific quote request that is WRITTEN then you are setting yourself up for a lot of pain. For example, is excavation AND removal of soil included? Has the soil test been done and have the people quoting it actually seen the soil test? There are many other issues as well on sloping sites that will impact this.
Builders are people too....

Thanks for your replies so far.
Hi wildorchid, we will go split level. We like the Wild Orchid also, but not sure if Dechellis would accomodate split level. How did u find them?

Once we changed sales reps..... Good, there were a couple little hiccups, which u may get with any builder, but since we have started it has all run smoothly
