Hi there,
Have you considered upgrading your package to a Prestige or Signature and are you opting for the promo?
A lot of those things are included with the exception of point…

Yikes, must be a big area indeed!
doosra, very true. A lot of other factors can come into play with these things. In…

Sounds like concrete pools are much more pricey. We’ve gone fibreglass with the Connect 10 too, electric heating, blade water feature, massage jets, porcelain pavers with drop face coping etc.…

Agreed. We were in the same situation when we signed up. Happy to accommodate as we would have loved the opportunity too but the lack of courtesy was disappointing.

For those in construction, we encountered a Wisdom sales rep taking customers into our home yesterday. As we weren’t notified, my husband put a call into our CSR and was…

Makes sense since guests will walk right past yours. A door wouldn’t break the bank either. Could get one of those doors with the translaminate glass panel so it still…

Nice CS199, and very true. Our butlers is west facing so we opted to keep it open so it doesn’t get stuffy. Door has it’s pros though, as my two…

It’s the Manhattan 52.

Hey CS199,
Opening is 1160mm. Didn’t consider a door as we have a third fridge right by the opening so it would have gotten in the way.
No access to the laundry…

Hi all,
Haven’t posted in a while as progress has been slow and we’re now past our 30 week build period.
Things are looking up though and I’m hoping we’re no more…

Wow! Seems like there’s construction delays happening all around.
We are at week 29 of a 30 week contract and still at least 8 weeks away from completion.
We had good progress…

Is it the rangehood vent you’re referring to?
If so, not the best pic but you’ll see ours to the left.

We opted for a Jack and Jill for two bedrooms as we needed a bathtub for my little one (and didn’t want him to have to use ours).

Hi CS199,
We’re building the Manhattan 52 on a 2000sqm block with a 26m frontage.
With our triple garage we opted to widen the foyer for a grand entry with 2 x…

Terrible news Doorsa. No experience to share I’m afraid. How did this happen?

Long time coming indeed! I’m sure the wait will be worth it. How long was the build time in your contract?

Hi stevezau,
What really helped me was the upgrade lists from each of the display homes. Not only does it give you pricing, but it also highlights what’s not included as…

Agreed! I was tempted to do the same but figured the laundry wasn’t something I would showcase in the home so standard would do the job. Tapware seems quite impractical…

Here’s what was sent to me for the Prestige package. Hope this helps.

Real shame about the bricks but the rest looks great MandM+4. Love your original concept too. The rendered blue board seems like an easier fix than redoing the brickwork so…

Agreed Greg. I’d do the same and push the envelope with that one. Should have been notified of the change especially if the change is dramatic. Hope you do get…

Timeframes does sound excessive. Hopefully a case of wanting to under-promise so they can over-deliver. Wet weather is forecasted which they may take into account too.
Our frames with roof trusses…

Agreed. From memory you’re allowed one set of changes after your appointment (which we exercised too) so you should be fine.

Why won’t they allow it? We had an issue with our balcony where our neighbour objected due to privacy. We opted for a frosted glass screen 1800mm high to one…

Hope our experience is the same. May I ask how many are in your household? We have 4. I worry that my 14 yr old will barely leave her room…

@Oz, how are you finding the size now that you’ve settled in? As our third garage contributes to the 60sq your living space would be even bigger.

I think I spent my cleaner budget on the upgrades.. 😪😪
