Hi there!
Im (attempting to) building with Format Homes, on Magnolia Boulevard.
Our estimate for footings, 276sqm, was $25k. Actual cost was $26.5, so pretty close.

Oh wow! Our soil is H1-D, and I think we have 200mm footings - though the whole soil report went way over my head! Our original estimate was 25k

They were very close with footings, out variation was $1400 extra. I believe thats fixed price (I really should re-read our contract at some stage)
