Congrats on getting to the next stage! The colour selections are fun but stressful! We did our selections last year before they had studio you in place so can't help…

We didn’t like the look of the privacy screens so went with a wider but higher window in the family room. Didn’t consider the translucent windows as thought it would…

Building with Hall & Hart Homes

We took the full 14 days and in that time changed the floorplan, put in provisional sums for electricals, flooring and butler pantry fit-out, also added in cavity sliding doors,…

Hi ks155,

We are building the sienna and originally wanted the timber cladding to match the facade on the hall and hart website - https://www.hallharthomes.com.au/our-homes/sienna/

There’s a completed elyse with full brick in lane cove next to Mowbray public school

Private inspections and progress payments

We recently completed the frame stage and had our private inspection done on Monday. The report came back with a number of defects that we’ve sent on to the…

Thank you! They quoted me the same. Interesting that they didn’t quite nail it as it had to go back and forth for approvals. They seemed quite confident they would…

We paid about $950 or 995 with ecodesign. Ours was DA and we needed further updates to get approval which was then charged by the half hour or hour.

Thanks for the update, kjane - I can sit tight for another 2 weeks - hopefully the CC and estimating will be complete by then. I asked what estimating needs…

Congratulations on getting so far with only very minor issues. That’s an incredibly efficient build!
We completed demo last week and now waiting for the construction certificate. Was supposed to meet…

That's a great idea to have a vertical garden (off to look up vertical gardens on pinterest :D)
Almost 9 months for the whole build is…

Hi kjane, that's great everything is progressing so smoothly for you guys! Fortunately you didn't buy the original model and can still get another one that will fit flush in…

I think all the stores (layout, range) are all pretty much the same. We just found the sales person on the day we visited Thornleigh really helpful.

Hi Amanda_Ly, I've been told all Beaumont Tiles display the same range (look for the silver and gold stickers for H&H premium inclusions). We went to West Ryde, Castle Hill…

Oh my gosh! Can't believe they broke in! Hope they didn't do any other damage.

Oh I can imagine what a huge outlay is to be buying new for everything. Did you guys manage to get a rental ok?
