Hi everyone, first time home builder here. We are a family of 5, three young kids aged 3, 7 & 8 and we're making the move from South East Melbourne to Ballarat.
At this point we've bought a 490m2 block in a new estate. Papers have been lodged with titles office and apparently this means approx 2 weeks from titling.
I've agonised over what builder to go with since mid last year. I had a deposit down with another build but decided to get it back.
I've now decided on JG King for a number of reasons, however, I have also read negative reviews online which did concern me. However, I've read bad reviews about every builder so it kind of feels like a bit of a leap of faith.
JG King build with steel frames and colourbond roof comes standard - both of which I like. I've put 2k deposit down at this point and gone for the house H7.1 from the UP Collection. I've made as many modifications structurally as this design allows including; separate WC and walk in pantry that also houses the fridge so more bench space. I decided to go for a cheaper build but maximum upgrades. I've agonised over all these decisions for a long time but am happy with where it's at at the moment.
No news for now, waiting till the land titles.
I look forward to sharing progress with you all!

I'm from Ballarat area. We using another local Ballarat builder Classic Co Homes. But some people in our estate are using them. They have a good reputation from what I have heard.

Loving the color stain of our front door but very disappointed that I can still see the black stain from when the bricks were acid washed: I am not going to accept this…
