My wife and I are looking to build the Porter Davis - Madison 40 and we thought we were going ok, our quote thus far:
Madison 40 - $325,900
Facade - $3,500
Site Costs - $40,000
Master to Front - $3,772
Extend Garage +2m - $6,342
Internal Doors - $966
Refrigerated Cooling - $17,350
Bigger Garage Door - $500
External Door to Study - $300
Electrical Allowance - $5,000
WoS Allowance - $4,000
Total - $407,630
However, after reading on here tonight I a bit worried as thing I figured were part of a normal build are not, ie. eves around the house ... nope, just the front! TV aerial? and so on ...
Also estimate figures from the Sales guy appear to be WAY off mark, ie. extra GPO is $35, TV point is $35, additional battons to pendent lights $40, and so on ...
I'm meeting up to see him on Saturday to have a chat as I will be so ticked off if I take time off work to do the two days at WoS only to find what we get and what we want are worlds part.
Whats people experience here, are a lot of you just upgrading and adding a tonne of stuff or is there just THAT much missing from their base builds?
I've not signed up as yet and was going to this weekend but now I'm not so sure ...?
Wondering if I take the general plan from PD and make some changes here and there then go private?
After people thoughts, feedback, experience, etc.
