Building A New House
Re: Romeo homes, rawdon hill homes, premier builders group2

We contemplated building a period home with Premier Group (who were associated with Onley constructions a few years ago). Always felt a bit... wary. We were looking for a period home - so looked at Premier, Rawdon Hill, Romeo and Kialla.
After reading the reviews on the productreview website and looking at the quality of their (then) latest display homes (the Avalon in Officer) we walked away. The quality was average at best. Too many alarm bells and I went with my gut feeling. The base price of the house was reasonable, but EVERYTHING was an upgrade (I felt).
Premier and Romeo used to be one, but Romeo split off a few years to become to focus on 'higher end' (read: quality) period builds. The display homes of Romeo we visited were good quality (I use the quality of a builder's display homes as a yardstick - if they can't get their "showcase" display homes right, why would you give them money to build your house?). Romeo were good, but the sales guy we dealt with didn't fill me with confidence.
We kept looking and ended up doing a full custom build with Kialla. Still in the design stage, but their quality is great, their pricing is very transparent and the list of inclusions compared to other builders is really good.

Premier builders group was like a sales company. Sales were started at the displays. Then several builders (3-4) would tender for each job. Each home (including displays) are basically the same, but lots of small differences, based on builder preferences.
Around 3 months ago, they were bought out by one of those builders (prime), who now build all homes.
Tighter control over everything from quality & consistency, to marketing & pricing.

what was your thoughts on Rawdon Hill, has anyone done any custom work with them. I am interested in the fact that they do split levels and can custom with a new or existing design.
