Hi all - is anyone building with Metricon on the Central Coast, NSW.. in particular Green Point.
We are looking at varies houses and want to try get a rough estimate of site costs.. every builder we speak to varies so much. I realise it depends on tests etc but wondering if anyone has done this already?
TIA!! : ))

Site costs will vary builder to builder but also site to site. If your block is level (or near level) your site costs will be a lot cheaper compared to someone who needs their block cut and supported with piering (for example). Some builders will have free site inspections that will give you an estimate of costings, however I don't believe Metricon is one of them.

Just trying to understand what these could be.
Can we hire an independent building inspector (like yourself) to estimate for us.. just so we dont go silly on extras for the house then to find out the site costs are huge!!
I also was interested in an independent company coming in a each stage of the build to check the builders work. Is this something you guys do?
If so what are the costs for both of the above pls.
