Building a 39 square house in Schofields Sydney

No idea about the driveway question, but your price for a house that size including landscaping seems very good!

So many builders going bust, how's King homes/Fowler homes?

100%, but the builders cost to build should be the contract price, which factors in their current build price.
Akuma69 is talking about increases outside the fixed price contract.

Covid for sure did impact fixed price contracts and created a lot of issues with supply chains and labour availability. That's now passed in my opinion.

Building a flame zone house in West Pymble on a steep site

Forgot to add, I know tradies are lining up for work, but 8-9 months for a house that size? Very impressive if that can be met.

As above, very unlikely you'll make it. My build is coming along well, but completed in under 12 months? Nah don't see it.

Interesting read. Good points.

Being a bargain was a bit tongue in cheek. Although, compared to the pricing Stonesthrow is paying in SA for a fairly basic finished build, something seems amiss.
