Drilling into Steel Beams?

Hi all,
Our beautiful Eden Brae home is finally taking shape, with its steel frame erected and ready to go.
We have set aside some items that we intend to wall…

Hi Titania_64, have just sent you my mobile number.

There's a 'standard' wall which includes all of the tile options you can choose from that are included in your $22/m2 allowance. The same goes for floor tiles. There should…

The costs may be a little higher as the Bristol is a two storey home, ours is a single storey. That's my guess anyway.

We are in the same situation as Titania71, our standard site costs were part of the essential package. Our additional site costs came to $16180.
What home are you building…

That sounds like a great idea FirsTimer.
We will be 22 Oberon Street.

We got an unconditional approval for both the land and build, our broker then sent a copy of our formal approval to Eden Brae for them to know that we…

Wow!
At least we will be on the home stretch by then!

Thank you for sharing, that's not a bad idea. Fingers crossed DA approval doesn't take too long through our builder.

Hey guys, I received the same message as well. Joel said to me that registration should be in two weeks with settlement to occur two weeks after that. Hopefully a…

Hi All,
I have an update from McGrath saying that the settlement is expected to happen Mid May :(<br>
Hi AllisWell, who did you speak to from McGrath?</p></div><div class=

I have been told the same thing from Emily, very frustrating.
First Timer, consider yourself lucky!

I have asked my builder the same question, unfortunately they said they need to wait for the land to register before any plans can be submitted for approval.

I hope so, seems like a pretty steep cost (no pun intended)!

We have site costs of around $16k on our contract, we're building a single storey Eden Brae. These costs were calculated almost 18 months ago when we had our tender…

We also had a similar experience too - not very co-operative. We wanted to take a sample tile along to our other colour appointments, but were told that a $50…

Thanks all! This puts my mind at ease a little.

Ok, not a problem. Thank you for your help!

May I ask what lender you went ahead with? We are also building a single storey.

Hi all,
Has anyone gone for finance yet - how will the land be able to get valued?
This is the first time I have applied for a mortgage, so I am…

We loved it. The colour and electrical appointment is where we went a bit overboard...!!

From memory, there were about six standard bricks we could choose from category A, and then categories B to G incurred an additional cost. We went with Gibson from category…

Welcome. We also dealt with Bede and we were incredibly happy with his service as well.
We are building a Livingstone 22 on lot 33 with Eden Brae.

It's so exciting to see street signs! I hope we start to finally see some closure soon.

Oh no
So does this mean the civil works will be finished mid January rather than mid December?

They're very pretty. Love the colours
Would they be the same trees as the ones planted along Piccadilly St against the new houses?

A bit off topic, but just thought I'd let everyone know that Masters have 40% to 70% off everything at the moment. We bought wallpaper rolls for $11-20 each -…

I'm sure March would be worst case scenario. Last time I spoke to Joel he said all civil works would be done by December and then it's up to the…
