Tiled roof or Colorbond !?

I feel in love with it as soon as I saw it. Probably the quickest thing for me to pick.
For our 19 sq house the upgrade cost around $195.

I will most likely have to do a little pruning but better to put it all in and then remove later.

I need to follow up with my broker and Fairhaven to book my tender appointment.

Oh how exciting. I think the slab will make it more real. There is something physical that resembles a house lol.
I seemed to have picked similar colours to your externals!

I know I was simply happy to see that the builder had conducted soil samples.

Suggestion requested for builder / plan / price ( 14 M * 32

I agree with visiting a display village. Some builders don't have base prices on their website.
www.ibuildnew.com.au is a good resource too.

How long did your build take, and what time did they quote?

That's pretty good. I'm planning on building the Clovelly 191, too. How has your experience been with Fairhaven?

Thanks icat2000, I recall that you had issues with your valuation at first.
