Building A New House
May 10, 2018 11:17 am
We are planning to build our first house so looking for some recommended builders and designs
We will be building in Gables in Box Hill NSW. Block size is approx 700m2 with a 30m frontage and 16m rear so looking for a wider style house
Block is pretty level so dont envision that being a major problem. Need some thing modern and possibly with a dedicated home theater room to server as a man cave
Budget all up approx 500K all up for the build
We liked a few designs from Wisdom homes and Fowler
Any other details we should consider being the first time we are building

I would avoid Fowler Homes like the plague.
I am in the Illawarra area and watched 2 houses being built by them. One is now nearing completion, but it has taken Fowler over 2 years to get to that stage. Weeks go by without anyone doing any work. The finishes appear very poor.
Another started in Spring last year. Pretty much the same story, with weeks going by without any progress. This house had the framework warped and rotting because of the time left in the weather. So, after the slab was laid, approx 6 months ago, only framework is started. I understood from discussion with an owner, that Fowler offer only $1 per day if they go beyond the building contract period, so there is absolutely no incentive for them to rush, or even attempt to deliver a build on time.

I would never build again with Aspire. Be extremely careful.

Appreciate your response.. civil works is looking good - considering they’ve just started mid-Aug.. it’s going pretty quick. There are almost roads and curbs…
