McDonald Jones homes has changed name or company in QLD and now they are called Brighton Homes. According to their web site they are backed by MDJ.
I like their plans but I am not bit concern to build with a new company because they sometimes disappear in a few years. Does anyone know if Brighton Homes is a separate company or part of MDJ?
I couldn't find Brighton Homes on ProductReview web site. So I don't know any good/bad reviews about them. Please let me know if you have dealt with them.

So far the process has been excellent! We’re only in the early stages but admin has been far less painful than our last build. The HIA contract lists Mac Jones, trading as Brighton as the builder so technically speaking they’re still Mac Jones just with a new name for QLD.

Thanks kailie86 .
How long did it take you to come to the point where you can submit the plan for council approval?
What's their estimated time to build a single story house?
We’re not quite there yet. We accepted our consolidated tender on the 7th March. Initial colour studio walk through on the 9th. We had our plan presentation on the 26th and have our colour selections booked for the 5th April. We then do contract signing and electrical on the 16th April. After that we have to submit to our developer for covenant approval and then we go to council. We’ve been told build time is 22-24 weeks. We don’t mind the build taking longer if the finishes are going to be quality. Our current house, the build time was only 11 weeks and there were quite a few shortcuts taken.

Yes that's correct. Don't mind taking longer if the finishes are going to be quality. The good thing is that you can still finish before Christmas! Looks like it's unlikely for us even we start now because we were told Brisbane city council can take 1-2 months for approvals.

Yeh, I won’t hold my breath either. Our land is yet to register, the developer has told us late April however our solicitor has said GCCC are pretty slow and she expects it’s more likely June/July so we’ll wait and see. We’ve still got our fingers crossed that we’ll be in by the end of the year.

Yeh, I’m not holding my breath for April registration, although it’s already been delayed a few months apparently so we’ll just wait and see.
