Hi Lozsyd - any update on where you are at with your build? We have just switched over to construction so fingers crossed that slab can go in before xmas.

Yes this is a fair expectation for the cost. It depends on what they are removing, what you want them to do e.g. we had them remove a couple of…

Hi - I would advise you to go and have a look at their options at TileDirect. Carpets and laminates are at the Clarendon studio. They don’t mind for you…

Hi lozsyd - our CDC came through on Friday (roughly 4 weeks). We are locked in for demo on 30/9. Just waiting for final documents from Clarendon now.

I didn't realise they were not the same between states - the hamptons façade in NSW is $30k.

The eaves depend on the façade so you should check with Clarendon. We only picked up that the alfresco does not have eaves when we were at contract stage -…

It will be same as what is displayed at the Parklea display. What does your custom made one look like?

Hebel is a made from concrete and the hamptons façade pricing is based on hebel. The display home is built with this product. We just prefer bricks. Could you have…

Our tender came in at 640K because we changed the hebel to bricks under the render and we are also on a sloping block so the drop edge beam allowance…

Re demo - yes I already have approval. I went with Home Demolition because the one through Clarendon was double the price. Abit pricey to charge $2K for change in…

Congratulations!
We've been at CDC for 3 weeks (today) now. Apparently we will get a response within the next few days as the certifier has just requested for final documents. We…

Construction Loan Pre-approval

Hi - my bank has provided conditional pre-approval for our KDR. The approval is subject to the provision of final plans, contracts, costing etc. The builder will need some confirmation…

We have had our plans with CDC certifier for 2 weeks so far, hopefully will come through this week as Clarendon said that it is normally 3-4 weeks. Our demolition…

Hi lozsyd,
Does your kitchen quote include the cost of the butlers pantry and walk in pantry fitouts? Also the gloss finish cabinets - is this polyurethane? We have tile selection…
