Update 10/06/2021: Pretty much stalled at the moment. Still no bricks so can’t get to lock up. SS is great with updates, I’d imagine even he’d be getting annoyed with…

No bricks yet, none in sight as far as I can tell which is annoying because houses are going up all around us with no delays. How did your slab…

Great house design! We looked at the Winton 24 but our block faces west so no escaping the summer arvo sun on the bedrooms. Pretty sure we have mostly clear…

No problems. There’s a building with coral homes Facebook pages that will give you others experience. Ours doesn’t appear to be typical but it is becoming more common sadly.

Update 30/04/2021: Roof on, house wrapped and plumbing/electrical in. We have a new manager and SS that are clued in and have tripled the build speed. Going to be a…

Update 07/04/2021: We’ve had a lot of rain! Still just an incomplete frame even though we’ve paid the invoice for completion of that stage. Unfortunately we got the the point…

Good questions. The contract says 150 days from start date in Jan. We are supposed to get $50 a day for every day over that but there’s a lot of…

Update 10/03/21: Frame is 90% up. Just been advised it’s likely to be 6 more months until completion making it a 16 month build from deposit to completion. That’s about…

Update 25/02/2021: Slab was poured today at 7am which is awesome considering the weather leading up to today. Unfortunately we’ve had thunderstorms and about 15mm of rain this evening with…

Hope your build goes smooth and fast for you👍🏼
I don’t know who Mojo…

Coral Homes Grange 28 build time

100% agree re the cost for electrical. We added $3000 to our standard inclusions and still had to contribute almost that again. I’d recommend having a minimum of $10k for…
