Building A New House
Sep 01, 2017 1:09 pm
We are planning to build a Sheridan 39 mkii with Clarendon homes in Edmondson Park. We have indicated we need Axis façade. Thought it will be great if people on the same boat can come together and share thoughts here?

We are also planning to build Sheridan 39 MKii in Blacktown. We got our tender presented on 22.8.17. We have put in a deposit of $5000 and signed with Clarendon on 28th of August.Our building contract appointment is on 20th of September.All exciting and also very stressful. What stage are you guys at?? It's good to know and share experiences with someone doing the same thing.

We are just in the beginning phase, haven't signed tender yet.
We are making few modifications and are still finalising them at this stage.
Are you doing any modifications as such?

We are building the Sheridan 39 with rumpus and alfresco in Picton. Currently in week 3 of construction and so glad to be past the colours stage which was a nightmare. Hopefully this stage will be much better!

Hi Shilpa & Jellyjot
We had our colours appointment last week. It was a nightmare as you said. We ran out of time. We still need to see stair case lady.Tiles, Electrical and another appointment not done yet.
Yes we changed the structure a little bit. We are having Rumpus and Alfresco option. We got rid of the big wardrobe in Master bedroom as we felt the bed is very close to the Ensuite. We have extended behind bedroom 4 for a big wardrobe. We are having Princeton facade as in display. If you have any questions u can call me on 0421530710. Happy to share our experience so far.

Hi Susan & Jellyjot,
Nice to hear!
We have delayed the tender process quite a bit, as we are making quite a lot of changes to the ground floor as such. How did your colour selection go?
Do you know the prices for Calacutta range of kitchen benchtop?
I think its not even in their platinum range!

We are going for Alpine white kitchen bench top and extending the island bench for one meter. He said $ 2000 for Alpine white and $2500 for extension of island bench. These are not exact figures. They said they will send the quote on kitchen upgrades next Tuesday or Wednesday.

We are up to brick stage. We tried to limit upgrades as well, but it wasn’t easy - especially electrical. The inclusions for carpet was terrible and we weren’t happy with the vinyl/laminate selection or the upgrade costs, so have removed them flooring from our contact and will be doing post handover. They issued us a credit for these items. For less than their upgrade costs, we are getting far superior carpets, underlay and karndean vinyl, from a flooring store. We chose standard tiles for the bathrooms and did an upgrade to the kitchen splash backs which was about $150. Hope that helps!

You’re most welcome! I’m terms of tips, gosh, where to start??!! If you have any specific questions in mind, please feel free to pm me and I’ll be more than happy to help. So far, our build is going well, but the colour selection/admin stage was a nightmare!

Alpine white is the bench top as in Parklea display home. We took Alpine white 80 mm thickness as in display. For that colour $ 2500 and for thickness another $2600. Altogether about $ 5000. These are not exact figures.
We have done all the selections. Moving out in couple of weeks. Expecting the construction to start in End of March or Early April.
