Quick update - we had our slab poured on Monday, it was delayed a week due to rain. Now we can't believe the progress!! Every time we have been out there (even at 6:30pm and on Saturday afternoon) they were out there building away!! Very exciting. Does anyone know if they do bricks or roof first?

Your house looks beautiful... I have read all your comments/Blog and seen all the photos which was great help... I have also paid initial deposit with Dennis Family in Melbourne. Can you please tell me about porcelain tiles colour and how much extra they charge to upgrade. I love to see the finished house photos if you can share.
we have selected almost similar upgrades as yours. we also want energy efficient house and hoping to achieve for 7 star.
Thank you very much for sharing your experience.

I have added a few more photos to my blog. More to come shortly (still writing my "post handover" blog).
bjasani - The tiles were from Bendigo Floor and Home centre (the tile people) and they are called Kalahari Crystal Polished TS4486 600x600. They cost around $1,000 for the upgrade ($500 for the tiles and $500 paid direct to the tiler to lay them). If you were going to put them right throughout the house it would get quite expensive but we only have them in the wet areas. We LOVE them, very much worth the extra money.
tlblhayward - I will check out your blog, Junourton is a beautiful place to live!

Thanks for your reply. I absolutely love your finished house especially the tiles in wet areas.
We are planning to do right throughout house except bedrooms. It's going to be 75 sq all area so not sure how much that would cost?
I hope it suits our budget as well.
Thanks again for sharing your experience.

Your house looks sensational! I absolutely love everything that you have done to it... particularly your floor boards. I am not usually a fan of timber flooring but your floors are almost enough to convince me otherwise!

It’s a good sign if Metricon are confident enough to show your house to others. The workmanship on my house was so poor they never would have done this!

All nbn does is pull the cable through all the conduits the builder has installed in your new house.. Without the conduits. It will be a mess. So NBN is not doing much at all.
