It's time for me to have my own thread and share our experiences with building process.
We started our KDR journey back in April 2014.
After sifting through many project homes... we selected three project homes builder....Rawson , Coral and our favorite Sekisui.
After adding and changing floor plan of Rawson... we comes to conclusion it's does not suit for us.
Therefore the remaining two builders were Coral and sekisui.
1. Coral - Miami 40
2. Sekisui - Aron 395
In order to finalize our decision we went heads on with both builders... paid 2k each to both builder to start up NHP.
This process started from April 2014 to Nov 2014.
The final decision was made on " The Outdoor Living Area". This outdoor living area was able to fit into our current land size, with Sekisui house plan. So we signed our contract end of Nov 2014 with Sekisui.
Sekisui submitted DA approval to our local council back in March 2015.
our local council gives us deferred approval with conditions back in Aug 2015, due to easement.
Which I simply label as " THE EASEMENT SAGA". (will talk about it later)
The good news is just very recently we have final DA approval.... two days ago.
Now we have to get CC and booked in for demolition - 7 of March.
Likes to thanks in advance for those who has helped with many of my questions in the past and for future.
