Footing cost increase while digging

Take the soil report and get quotes from other builders just to check if you aren't being ripped off.

Hi,

Hi Rajan,
I read Arun's whole post while researching about Fairmont. I have also spoken to Mr BJ, came across to me as very informative and upfront about the inspection process.

Has anyone of you hired a building inspector ?what are the formalities and how did fairmont react?

Hi Guys,
How are things going on?
The NBN charge is around $500 for a single story build and close to $750 for a double story.
The additional $1200 is for the connecting…

I guess, it's a good bet to buy/build in any established suburb. Besides Enfield/clearview are both under 10 km from CBD and close to main public…
