We are in the early stages of building the Phoenix 38 with Metricon in Adelaide. Our preliminary estimate includes an allowance of $30,000 for site costs. We are yet to complete soild tests etc to confirm what the actual cost will be. Does anyone know if this is a reasonable starting allowance? We are building in the eastern suburbs of Adelaide.

Depends on a lot of things but the main ones seem to be soil type on your block and the degree of slope - if any. Generally speaking, the agents use local area data and local job information to work out a starting point for your site fees. Our site fees were more than yours, but we had a 1.2 metre slope. The estimate versus actual cost was in our favour by a grand or so.

I've spoken with a few builders now and the site costs should be around the $30k mark. Soil in the Eastern suburbs of Adelaide isn't that great so higher costs.

Thanks for the info. Metricon is telling us they don't have the film material. They haven't it it for a long time. So this is interesting to see. viewtopic.php?t=86597
