First time builder, first time forum poster.
I've been reading through and love reading everyone's experiences and thought I'd start my own thread.
My partner Justin & I are building at Cliftleigh Meadows in NSW - near Newcastle.
We are building a 'Malibu 196' with Perry Homes.
So far I have my best friend and her fiancé in the estate also building, is there anyone else building in Cliftleigh on here?
