Been following this forum for MONTHS.... and now I've decided to join the gang and start my own feed.
Building with HGWA. Building the Michigan.
We've had prestart and felt pretty confident with what we wanted. I knew things to watch out for and made a list of things to check/ask for.
All up we came in under budget. My bf is a sparky so he is doing most of the electrical after handover. (Apparently we were one of the fastest couples to complete the electrical side of things. Was done it just a few minutes.)
We want 600x600 tiles and so that too will happen after handover.
Can't wait for the Slab to go down.
Just waiting now I guess

Hey, welcome to the forum
We have pre-start woth HGWA in a few weeks. Any chance you could share how much your upgrades cost?
We're trying to get an idea so we can budget, plus see if there is anything we missed.

We've made so many additions so I'll rattle off a few things
We are getting grano to our alfresco so we can tile it later $912
1m wide draws instead of cupboards $1032
The nicer draw handles $264 and positioned horizontally
frameless shower frame for bathroom with and hobless shower reflux for ensuit and bathroom ~$1000
Chrome integrated tile floor for bathroom and ensuite $288
The Omni pull handle for front door $370
Microwave recess $526
Plasterboard ceiling with cove cornice to alfresco $625 (so you don't get those ugly joins)
I learnt to try and get as many thing in the actual contract so you don't have to worry about them at prestart.

Looking forward to following your progress, we're building a couple minutes down the road in Hocking and our slab only went down about three weeks before yours
