SUMMARY: I'll try to update this from time to time.
My hubby and I are looking to build our "forever home" (well, 20 year home anyway) for ourselves and our two boys 4 year old and 1 year old.

Timeline so far:
Feb 2013 - first enquired at land and Plantation Homes
March 2013 - contract on land with extra long settlement to give us time to sell our house
June 2013 - sold old house with a week to spare, settled on land and moved into rental (nightmare stressful couple of months!!)
Oct 2013 - signed contract with Plantation Homes (after 4 months languishing in admin land, sorting out our siting & retaining, floorplan tweaks, kitchen specifics etc. I guess that's what happens when you're picky!!)
Jan 2014 - commenced first retaining wall
Feb 13th - site cut done and no hideous rock encountered!!
June 17th - HANDOVER!!
