We went with whites, greys and light warm timbers. We love it! I can't wait to see it all come together - we have been obsessing over it for so long!
Congratulations on a 3D house! You must be super excited to be able to walk through and get a feel of the space 😀

House is looking great! We are keenly following your build as looking at doing something similar. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind letting me know how much you were estimated for footings, and the actual cost? And how deep were they?
Can't wait to see your progress.

How exciting for you! Have you decided on your floorplan? We just got standard depth footings which i have no idea what it is, sorry. We were estimated $28,000 for footings and cried when it came in at $39,000. We knew a KDR meant more expensive footings but ouch!! We did have a 15m palmtree which may have impacted it too. Our block also slopes down about 1m. I hope that helps

Thanks so much for that,
We have had estimates for around $28-40k for footings, so i guess we should really expect worst case scenario and budget for $40k. We also have a gentle slope of around 1m and a few palms to get rid of.. haha!! but not 15m ones! hehe. We haven't got our floor plan 100% finalized as still waiting for quotes to be adjusted. How has everything been with fairmont? they are one of our options.

Those figures sound spot on! We have been so so happy with fairmont. Nothing at all to complain about. This is our 2nd build with them. Enjoy choosing! The planning is by far the most exciting

Ahh thats really good to hear, we are soo over the planning now as its been a few years!! But needed to wait till we had more money. Now we just need to just take the big plunge to knockdown and rebuild and fingers crossed our suburb will continue to develop. Dragging our 3 year old and 11 month old to display homes and talking to sales people isn't much fun anymore.. But we are pro's now at whats included and what is not. LOL.

If you want to PM me I can give you info from my engineering report for Valley View. My house is just under 140sqm and it was $38,000 for footings on a level block (different builder though).
