We are about to start our adventure on building our first home with Valeco, we have been happy so far, interested to hear from anyone else how the process has been for you, the good and bad.
Looking forward to sharing our build with you all.

How exciting!! There are quite a few Valeco builds in here atm. I'm sure they will all pop in to say hello.
My partner and I have almost finished our build with Valeco in Spring Mountain. For the most part it has been good, a couple of hiccups which are to be expected with any build. One fairly major stuff up, which is in the process of being fixed.. hopefully it will work out okay, we will see. The most frustrating part from our experience has been the lack of communication/updates. This has come from the constant change over of Site Supervisors. We dont know when our PCI is yet... but our contracted date is approaching (8th April). It could still happen, fingers crossed!
I won't go into details in your thread but feel free to jump onto mine and read more.
Did you choose one of their designs or are you doing a custom build? Have you had your colour selection appointment? Would love to see!

Thank you for your reply.
I checked out your thread, your house looks amazing, love all of your colour choices 😄.
We are building in Griffin, and building a modified tide 22, no colour appointment as yet, but look forward to sharing with you when we do. We have just signed the contract that itself has been a process 😂.

Hey tashmc - agree with Stacey, just make sure you keep in regular contact with your consultant and your site supervisor when building starts. Staff changes has definitely affected builds. Although i'm hoping they have now sorted it out. I'm sure it will be fine by the time you start building.
Anyway the Tide22 is a great plan - super huge living area

Thanks for tour reply, the tide22 does have a huge living area but we have taken a fair chunk of it out to create a media room. I'm just Hoping it works in real life (looks good on paper to me but so unsure)
What house are you building?

Ours is based originally on the Kalbarri, and then shared with a couple of other designs.. Then we modified it again - rearranged kitchen, extended width, repositioned a couple rooms, and changed orientation. It basically become a custom design at the end.
And there would be plenty of room for a media room in yours. Makes more sense if you want somewhere else to escape to and be messy, while the living room remains on display haha - or maybe that's just me.

Apologies for the late reply. I decided to move in 3 weeks ago with defects still needing attention. Couldn't wait any longer because it was already 14 weeks past…
