Making a thread as journal of our house build.
This is our second time building a house, first time with Complete Homes.
Finding a builder wasn’t smooth this time around.
We had initially found the land through a builder here in WA.
We’re requested to pay $1000 as “finding the land” fee and part of Prelim agreement.
Nevertheless, we were given a phone number and was told to negotiate our own land price and land purchase. Now that I think about it, that was really stupid of us.
Long story short, we’re finding more and more issues with builder integrity during design process. Verbal promises that never placed in writing and discrepancies on the prepared contract (we didn’t sign the contract).
Pulled out of our preliminary agreement and lost our $2000 deposit.
Looked through Ross North website and got to know our sales/design consultant. Told him what we were after and budget. He then recommended us to go with Complete Homes to suit our budget (which is also part of Ross North group).
Amazing service from them and we found that the design suits us tenfold better than previous builder we bailed out from.
Anyhow, this is the plan
Our land is 350m2 with BAL 12.5 rating.
