Definitely check the selections beforehand.
Mixer Taps - It's really hard and expensive to change after.
Ovens/Sinks etc = I would pay for the one you like as they cut to fit…

I am moving in 2 weeks. Makes it about 9-10 months from slab down. Some houses made it in 7 months, some are still going. Depends on…

Is anyone building at Mawson Green, Meadows SA?

Yeah these builders can work fast when they want to.
I grew up in Meadows (go up to folks every 2 week). Was thinking of moving into the estate, but…

Why so long?
The first year they pretty much misled us as to where the land was in council. 3 months, 3 more months, 3 more months, then in another…

I feel for you JakkiT.
I'm building at Woodcroft Horizon Estate (Fairmont). I was supposed to be in 14 months ago, they just extended another 5 weeks (when…

I got a letter two weeks out from completion extending 4 weeks. Called SS, doesn't plan on having painters in until after the next completion date. Useless. …

Footings: Deep, the deepest they go. Clay soil. Mine were $30k. Soil removal costs a couple thousand more (which you will need to pay as it…

Our neighbour is about a 3 weeks late.
Funny how we are swaying back and forward with who's infront. We are just getting our kitchen in now, and…

You are not alone with the frustration towards Fairmont Homes.
Finals Builders Interview - It did seem very forced. Fortunately we came into the meeting with a bunch…

I should clarify. If you want nicer stuff through Fairmont the prices are excessive.
Laminate vs stone is a different ballgame. If you push for a butt…

We asked about this, they refused to do a mitred joint, said it was too hard... No comment on that haha.
The slab end is a huge ripoff too. Just…

Sorry, yes building with Fairmont. It has been a long process. By the time we get handover, it will be 2 years from walking into Fairmont and actually…

Interesting thread.
We just had fascias done. Frame was done 6 weeks after slab, seems the standard. Windows the next week. Fascias this week. Roof next…

We had our fascias done the other day, gutters are probably done but not checked it out yet.
Still no roofing stuff delivered, hopefully next week.
Have no-one to do…

Was nothing but a slab on Monday, by Wednesday the frame was done.
Windows in a week, hopefully that'll be true for us too.
You're not wrong about how awesome…

3 years3 yearsferoshiousferoshious posted:

Still no frame. How about you Anubiz?
Should be this week...

Thanks for the offer, soil has been removed and finally got a slab yesterday. Pretty damn happy! Not sure how long they leave it before work starts. …

Have not had the chance to visit the block so not sure... said they were cutting though. Will visit on Friday to check it out. Like you said…

We will probably have 250+ ton to remove at around $20 a ton, so around $5000. Ouch.
You got a price?

3 years3 yearsferoshiousferoshious posted:
Building with Fairmont Homes / RealtySA @ Woodcroft Horizon

Finally got the call today. Cutting the block as we speak.

3 years3 yearsferoshiousferoshious posted:

Yeah they did have a pretty good deal on Colorbond but the Mrs likes tiles and thus we have tiles.

3 years3 yearsferoshiousferoshious posted:

Did your roof tiles get cancelled? Looks like they are not using Nova anymore and going with a Boral product. Not very shiny...
