@jayyenn, when we had our appointment with Evolve we chose 2 variation options and they provided the prices for both so that we could then choose which one to go ahead with. Did they do this for you?
Good luck with your build!
No they didn't give me that option. Had I known it would've saved a lot of time with back and forth variations post contract. (Signed contract early to ensure FHOG). Either way my land settles today and then its all on bold to get the ball rolling.

Week 12 and we are in the fixing stage (to be completed July 12).
I can't wait for the facade/portico wood feature to be finished. Not overly happy with it at the moment.
More pics when we have our next site meeting on July 9.

chrinee you'll be overtaking us soon... what colour is the render? if the capping still looks odd, you could always paint it to match the render colour. We are thinking about doing the same thing with ours. Just wait and see how it all looks.

That's not the final colour of our render gr8ly. My understanding is that it gets painted..? We've chosen Haymes Ash Grey.
You're right though, if the brick capping looks terrible we could just paint over it.

gr8ly, did you end up driving past? The render colour is a lot lighter than we expected... but I think I like it!
PCI is Monday, 13 August and Handover is booked for Monday, 27 August (or Monday, 10 September if they let us move it as hubby will be away).

I visited the estate about a week and a half ago. Was going to message you! Your place is flying along... and the colours are looking good. Are your bricks 'frost'?
I'm a little put off by all the mistakes on our build. It seems there are a lot of things done, but nothing is ever finished. They still have external/internal painting to finish, tiling to finish, but have started putting in electrical and everything else. So i find that trades have to come back multiple times to finish a job. Seems like a jumbled mess.

Such a shame gr8ly. I've heard from another Valeco build and they had a very similar story.
No, our bricks are Moondust.
We've been very lucky except for the electrical... long story!

ours are frost, they look very similar, except ours are very discoloured. Now wanting to render it all. Our electrical was a disaster as well, but they are fixing it all up. There were the only trade that were happy to meet up with us first.
I'll need the tour of your place once you move in haha! i have a feeling you'll be in before us.

Hi Ashwin. PCI went well and we are in. We still have a number of smaller issues to fix (most happening Mon/Tues next week), but for the moat part we are really happy.
Hello chrinee how did the PCI go?
How is your build going?
