I only just discovered this forum a couple of months back when we were looking to build our home and have found everyone's experiences to be really helpful! We have already settled on a block in Baldivis, and about 2 months ago now signed with Dale Alcock and chose their Stoneleigh design. Everything has happened so quickly, we were planning to sit on the block for a while but once we saw the design we fell for it straight away and couldn't wait to get started. This is the second home we are building so we are pretty excited to get started!!
We have our external colour meeting booked for 12th Jan. We have already done majority of variations/upgrades prior to signing the contract so really it will be just a few final things at prestart. Once we get the final drawings through (we made one last change to the master ensuite last minute!) I will put it up (once I work out how to??!!??)
Looking forward to sharing our build with you all!
