Building a Huntley 30 with Rawson @Colebee (Stone Cutters)

Thank you! We just got quoted $4200 including the servery Caesarstone (20mm). I think we are pretty happy with the price.
Great progress with your house too, well done.

Thank you. We signed up for the Huntley 30 also and have asked for a quote. My partner loves them!

Hi alisonandrew, may I ask how much you were quoted for the bifold kitchen windows, and are they aluminium?

Following this thread, we just signed a tender for the Huntley 30 also! Thanks for the pictures and progress.

Who's building the Rawson Huntley 30?

Thanks alisonandrew, we have the same idea. Study at front but make it smaller for the bigger theatre room.
We are getting a quote to extend the back family and…

Thanks for your input! And funny how you looked at the Bronte 28 too. That was a lovely display home I agree.
I think with the Huntley, we also thought…

As per title, we are putting a serious consideration for this and comparing with the Clarendon tender that we already have, the Bronte 28.
Obviously a different design, but we do…

Who's building with Clarendon??

Had our tender appointment with Clarendon last Friday. Few quick observations:
Site costs were under the initial estimate. Awesome. They added a $5k provision for stronger slab and piering which…

Looks good ajedi2k. What facade did you choose?
And I take it as per pics that you didn't go for the rumpus room too.
Nice progress though at least.

Close to it mate! We are on the corner junction of Terry and Old Pitt. Its called Akora.
We were planning to do Gables when they released it few years ago…

We are looking to build a modified Bronte 27 B1 Rear. Similar to the Parklea display home (its a 28) but we love the open alfresco and corner stackers. Its…

Yes me too, we are choosing the Bronte.
If we did do a glass splashback, we would have a view through the garage, so its not exactly appealing.

Well done guys with your negotiations and its great to hear about pushing the builder to get the best deal. As someone said, talk with your brain, not your heart.…

Thanks for sharing, Mojo. Are you getting quotes from other builders too? It may have been good leverage during the presentation to mention this. I know I will as I…

Best Orientation - Sydney New Build

Great suggestions thanks!
Never heard of this sound acoustic stuff, how much was the upgrade cost if you don't mind me asking when building?

Cheers mate, if the glazing side becomes too expensive, that reflective mirror-like film might be a great affordable solution in the interim.
I've got a tender appointment next week with both…

I can't explain why but I imagine the owners of our 2 storey just kept the sustainability stuff very basic. Maybe thinner insulation? We do have AC but I can…

I would love a bidet in our ensuite too. $2k what a load of bollocks. My plumber can do it for much much less than that (which we will do…

Thanks all. I suppose that trying to be sustainable will cost more upfront but hopefully will see the money back in a number of years. Our two storey house that…

And sorry, it wasn't with Wisdom but with Clarendon and Hudson homes whom we are looking at.

Yes I would agree too it is dependent on design.
I love that look though and well done for implementing them.

Nice work!
Out of curiosity, how much was the corner alfresco? As you described, the pillar-less design.
We've been quoted $5,5-6k max including alu stacker doors, so just gauging if this is…

Thanks guys.
What windows would you suggest for the bedrooms, bed 2, 3 and 4?

Very close too, we paid ours on the 17th Dec.
Head office should definitely be in touch with you soon.
Our tender presentation is on 17th Feb.

I'm of the same conclusion re the carpets from the builders range. Especially seeing some at the Clarendon displays where they look shocking!
So, how much $extra are you guys paying…
