We will be building with CJ Homes a two-storey brick-veneer house in Mitchelton (Brisbane North).
Contract has been signed today and I will use this thread to keep track of the build progress and, fingers crossed, move in mid 2019.
This thread can also serve as a general CJ Homes thread.

19/11/18: We obtained unconditional finance and returned pre-construction documents.
I find it odd that on these documents, we have to re-fill the build address and chosen project home given this is obviously already part of the build contract. QBCC Insurance has been prepaid and the next step should be the colour consultation.
I have read that the administrative process is often long when building a home. We'll see how this goes.

I discovered this week that the neighbour's builder decided to dump the excavated soil on my land without asking for my permission. It's apparently very common practice.
I still have a few weeks before our own build start and hopefully a gentle reminder will be enough for them to remove the soil.

It seems that CJ Homes is also the neighbour's builder, explaining why they didn't mind using my land temporarily.
It's been 8 days since pre-constructions documents have been sent and we have now received the working drawings.

Colour consultation cannot happen before the 15/01/2019 because of the Christmas break. I wasn't expecting the build to start until after Christmas to be honest but I would have thought the colour consultation to have happened earlier.
I have been told this won't delay the build that is pending council approval and engineering plans. Time will tell.
