Sign the contract? If you have a CSR then you would have already signed.
Just call the office and speak to anyone and explain the situation. I had Sarah and…

Don't change your mind on anything and don't bother questioning their prices, that should save you a few months of going back and forth.

Do you need developer approval in the area you're building? That stuffed me up with BASIX as the developer wouldn't let me have a lighter coloured roof and so I…

That came up early for me as well, I believe it's just a draft. It will be complete towards the end of the admin process when they send you the…

They haven't progressed at all. It took them 3 days last week to put up the scaffolding and this week all they've done is finish the roof frame.

I'm in brick stage. They started on the 14th of January and they're one third complete.

Yeah I've got a third of the bricks now, hopefully scaffolding comes on Monday so they can continue this week.

No they shouldn't, I had grass but they were only concerned with the dumped concrete on the block.

$35 per square is just for the tile, it doesn't include labour. Add $60 per square for labour to be get the full amount.

They say that... My BASIX went in a few times. You need to finalise all your colours for BASIX as that plays a part, ie colour of your roof. If…

Can't you still book your CQ appointments? The final plans are only done as a last step (after BASIX, Kitchen drawings, etc are done) which will most likely take another…

How badly mate?
That was about $15k

Final will be just before you move to construction. They will give you an amended contract to sign.
You could have large expenses at CQ but that all depends what…

Yes same for me. I believe they are just doing the roof after the bricks. I've seen a few double story homes both from Wisdom and Masterton that start the…

Two years??? When did you actually sign? Have you finished admin?
I took 9 months in admin after signing and I thought that was ridiculous.

7 months7 monthsAdam_17Adam_17 posted:

I believe the delay is on them, they still need to meet the time frame started in the contract.
I've been given a 4-6 week timeframe for frame delivery.

If you email Wisdom they'll send you out the price list for the house, upgrade packages and facades.

Yeah same situation. Slab poured on Tuesday and the supervisor told me yesterday there is a 4-6 week delay and that some areas of Sydney have 8 weeks. I'll find…
