Hopefully some costs come down after the recalculations and you gain something from the mishap.

Sorry to hear Manhattan52. What a nightmare.
Did they say how long the rework would take?

It was around $1300 to make it half a metre longer.

Wow! Love the bridge and the stairs are a milestone.. no more climbing ladders for you!

Unsure if the pool changes things but yes, we had our utilities trenched, stormwater, and drainage done in a week where frames were delivered on the Friday. Ground floor erected…

Thanks MandM+4 and Oz. Loving how detailed you've documented your timelines as it certainly comes in handy for followers like me!
Our brickwork started Tuesday last week. Can't complain with the…

Agreed. Timing seems to be everything in this game. I think you’ve lucked out on your pool too as I can’t seem to get anywhere near yours, so price hikes…

I wouldn’t worry.. we probably paid the additional $1400 (and then some!) in the base price when we signed in May 2017!

Seems on par as ours is the 52 version.

We’re on Prestige too and it cost us $2000 to have square set to ground and first floor.

Yep, I did the same taking lots of pics but the colours are never accurate on my phone. That plus I love having all of my selections laid out at…

At Di Lorenzo you can buy one box of each tile/s which wasn’t very expensive, depending on the tile choice of course. Unnecessary cost in some ways but I liked…

In addition to the raised height we also had to extend the length of the third garage to fit the 4WD comfortably (bull bar, tow bar and all).

Impressive! Making up for lost time!

Slab was poured 13th December so just over 7 weeks ago. While we did have the 3 week shutdown in this period, it made good use of the time to…

So happy with our progress that I thought I’d share. Frames and roof trusses almost complete. Only exception is the third garage which I’m guessing need bricks to complete? Brickies…

Great colours and facade choice MandM+4! Must be such a relief to see it come together so beautifully. I keep doubting mine and it’s too late to go back. Time…

Impressive. Did all of your frames get delivered in one hit? Looking at ours it seems we only had the ground floor so we could be waiting for another, though…

Wow, great progress! Not far behind where our ground floor frames were almost completed yesterday. Our SS said it would take 1.5 weeks to complete frame so promising to hear…

Hi Aaron2008,
Ours was a week between site scrape and slab pour, so it seems to happen pretty quick.
Slab was done before Christmas and our first call from the SS happened…

Is it the actual quote after slab that was too expensive or the estimate during admin?
Our initial quote was ridiculously high too but I’ve read here on this forum that…

Checked mine too and our plans say 2.4m height. We increased our ceiling height to 2.7m too so would have been good to have it like yours amf139. A detail…

Agreed. Had them at my previous home and the space they occupied to open and when open became a nuisance.
Main con for me is the absence of a flyscreen as…

Hi amf139, how long now since your slab was poured?
Ours was done yesterday (yippee!) but I’m guessing that will be it for us till next year.

Great news! With the hydraulic blowout it’s the least they could do.

One week since site scrape and very pleased with the progress. Expecting slab pour any day now.

Congrats Doorsa! Not to get your hopes up, but we had our site scraped on the same day as the fence so you never know.. you might see more action…
