Been reading for a while and thought I would share my journey so far and continuously update throughout, considering I am just getting started. Would love to hear your ideas and experiences, as I am a long journey ahead of me!

Selections have now been signed off on, there were some delays in receiving the bank pack. We were waiting on a new estimate on the site costs - we changed how the land was going to be cut and fill. Much cheaper to put a split in the garage, rather than cut the majority of the block.
Regarding selections we went really standard and mainly picked off one of their selection boards. The ABC builds are comparable to the home solution builds.
