I have been busy reading and getting information and tips off everyone else thread that i thought it was time I started my own!
A bit of the backstory....(since we are up to bricking!)
We knew we wanted to move house and assumed we would have to buy established as land is getting harder to come by or further away from the city.
Then we stumbled across this new estate in south east Melbourne and they had a block which had fallen threw and they need to sell immediately and we purchased it within the week (September 2013) The following week we left a deposit with Burbank to build the Attenborough. We want a little backyard and since this house is only 13 meters long it leaves us with 8 meters at the back!
We have had our up and downs with Burbank during the admin process, overall I am happy with them.
Contracts were signed early February; tap and earthworks late February; the slab was laid just after labour day.
It was very exciting to see how our house was sitting on the block. The frame started a few days later and took a week and a bit to compete.
This is the fornt of the house (not a great pic but the sun was directly in the len on the other side).
This is the back
We have agreed to give burbank a go and follow their way of doing things, since we brought up two questions and where reminded we where not allowed on site! Tell me where is the love! I hope i get a phone call this week with and update!
Brick was suppose to start at the end of last week and still nothing today!
Thanks for reading and I will keep this thread update! I look forward to the feedback and comments!
Happy Building Everyone!
