I had the same concerns - they're pretty used to it. We signed PWC last September and our land was supposed to title in March. We signed HIA contract in…

I doubt it, but it can't hurt to ask!

Sorry to hear that. Where abouts are you building? In Melbourne's north I don't much like our chances of getting better quality trades.

Wow that's pretty neat.

We got it in writing too.

That was what mine said. We signed PWC September last year.

Your price should be locked in for 12 months in total. Standard 9 months offered by Boutique plus a 3 month grace period. I've heard there's a statutory period of…

Pretty sure that's contract date

Stage 7 out to Sept/Oct now. I'm not much enjoying the monthly construction updates lately - there goes our 12 month locked in contract price...

I'm in Stage 7 of Aurora, so not far away.

Hi everyone.
The plan for our lot shows a shared driveway with our neighbour, but our building envelope means that our garage must be 1 metre away from that boundary.…

Yes. If you go into the new Aurora sales office they'll tell you all about that.

It's going to depend on the size of your home and which bits you choose to upgrade. For example, we chose Cat2 tiles but went almost to the ceiling on…

I think it also depends on the size of your frontage. We also paid extra for a corner treatment.

Hopefully none until the train line goes in, in about 20 years!

I think there are a couple of other standard facade options, at the same level as the Modern.
My wife loved the flat-roofed Escala facade on the Barcelona display at…

Wow that's a coincidence. We're also building a Riviera 33 in Stage 7a.
What facade are you looking at? We're going with the Provincial on a corner block.

That's rubbish. This is one reason I really don't like the idea of building on a concrete slab. It's a shame they don't give us a choice, but I suppose…

That's a worry. Dunno how they're gonna fix that stuff without pulling down the frame and breaking up the slab.
Did darbecca do an inspection prior to the slab being…

Unfortunately I don't think this is as good for Epping/Wollert residents as they might think. The Hume already backs up at the junctions with the Ring Road and Cooper St,…

Hi there,
We were going to but decided on the Riviera 33 instead.
The big windows in the Barcelona living area are great but the lack of wall between them…

All I'm saying is that I don't want my slab poured or my timber frame exposed to this kind of weather. Fencing, sure that's a different matter.

It's been raining really heavily lately. How much work do you want them to do while it's like this? When everything dries out it will move and shrink.

You can find most of that out at your walk through, before you pay anything. A lot of stuff is standard.

The Riviera 33 is actually shorter than the 29.

Hi there,
We struggled with this decision. We liked the Riviera 33 initially, but fell in love with the Barcelona 32 when we went through them. We eventually cane back…

I figured that. We're not signing anything until we're sure it's what we want.
Good luck then . U must have a big block to build Riviera 33? I am surprise…
