For those building with the project home builders is it now 'standard' to include floor coverings beyond the bathroom/laundry or have you just added these as additional packages for your builder to do?
When I built with APG it was a post handover thing but I've seen it mentioned so many times in many threads that people are choosing their floor covering from the builders range? Are more builders now doing turn key packages?
I've signed up with Celebration Homes, always planned to do it as before so just curious what the current trend is?

My flooring for the entire house came included if thats what you mean?
Laminate was included throughout the entire living area. Had the option to upgrade to tiles but i preferred laminate. Also took out the carpet in the bedrooms/theatre and put laminate in there too, but a lighter wood as opposed to the jarrah imitation in my main living areas

More Turn key packages ? Yeah Probably
With rates this low there are a lot of new builds , lots of apartments in Perth as well. First timers are likely to want a turn key package, there is enough to stress over without having to organise and pay extras after the build when finance is required for everything. Seems you already know the process, Relax and let builder do it and they add a nice juicy margin for themselves, OR do it yourself and shop for best deal and save $
I think you have answered own question. Luck

My first house had flooring included which was nice and easy for novice me with a limited budget and no clue.
We are building with Dales this time around, we got them to quote the flooring we had chosen, their price was pretty on par with the flooring supplier we chose, however our man at the supplier can do us a further discount and we were so impressed with his service we want to give him our business

Allot of mistakes were made. Keep your eyes open and record everything. Take photos and phone conversations or eye to eye doesn't work. If not sure get a second opinion.
