Building A New House

Palace Regent 12 is a good house design with good upgrades. eg upgraded roof tiles, bricks, tiles etc as opposed to other house design packages eg Grandworth.
Keep in mind that you will have to spend a bit of more money than you anticipated on upgrades eg electrical and data/nbn. If possible get Allcastle to take out electricals and do it yourself (it could work out cheaper depending on how many points etc you need). The same for carpet / tiling. And insulation if you're looking to upgrade. Air Cond... same thing. The advice I got was to use the base price... not the package price
Most house companies will give you 10k off the tender price so don't get over excited. Haggle some more...

I couldn't disagree more... All Castle are by far the worst builder we have dealt with...
All Castle was the 4th and final builder we engaged, and were the one we decided to build with (nice home, lovely sales team, fair inclusions). But once the build started OMG... I have to stop there before I say something that could get me sued (they have a clause in their contract that says you can't say anything bad about them on the internet - I wonder why!)
But over a coffee I could tell you some stories...

Don't say I didn't warn you. If it's not too late I'd cancel your contract with them and get another builder to finish. Otherwise you can expect delays, general incompetence, unsatisfactory workmanship, and stress for the next 9 months.

I wish I had of seen this before signing contract: http://bit.ly/1lKTSEd
16/26 reviews gave them a 'Terrible' rating. I just read through them and they are exactly right. I'm guessing they all had the same site supervisor as we did...
I will wait until construction is finished before I post my own review.

It is too late. We have been in build and will be nearly one year. They have a Clause in their contract but doesn't stop family members or friends from posting on our behalf?
Would love to share our experience too.
