Building with Hall & Hart Homes

Fantastic progress tand! Our kitchen selections look very similar so it's great to see it come to life. Which benchtop did you select?…

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…

That's a great idea to have a vertical garden (off to look up vertical gardens on pinterest :D)

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.
Sanders2, we compared the premium inclusion package with other builders but also took into consideration the…

That's wonderful, your SS sounds like he has great attention to detail and focused on doing what's right for your home rather than what's convenient. I went to the H&H…

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

Everyone keeps warning us that the build is going to cost much more than we've budgeted for.
You seemed to have a fairly smooth journey through the build, did you…

Fab progress, kjane! I haven't logged on in a while so seeing your house come up like that has been a treat! Love…

That's super helpful, Serenity - makes sense that people would not want to commit to a final quote with so many variables. I'll just sit tight until we get to…

Oh yes, that makes lot of sense to get a package price, thanks for clarifying. We will want to get someone to do it all too. When did you start…

The work looks fantastic - so neat ! Will definitely check them out based on your recommendation. Are those retaining walls next to your driveway? What was the rough…

Wow the curved structure looks amazing. Just discovered your thread. The joinery work shown in the video is gorgeous. Can't wait to see the completed internals!

We chose Democorp, they came out the cheapest and had the most included as part of the quote. We haven't demolished our home yet though they have been professional…

Oh I see! Thanks for clarifying about the laminate. So the standard bathroom vanity cabinets are ok?

Building with Hall & Hart Homes

Thanks kjane! Out of interest, what did you decide with your stairs? I remember you chose a thermolaminate for your kitchen cabinets - did you consider the 2pac at all?

Such timely guidance, AllyBrian! We are looking at our vanities and wondering whether to stick with the standard. We originally had the display home upgrade in our tender for the…

Hi Amanda, we are building the Sienna 42 though with all our floor plan changes, it’s more a hybrid of the Sienna and Elyse. We chose waterproof engineered floorboards and…

Thanks for the advice, AllyBrian! We got the 20kw aircon I think. Will check if we can do just one zone.
I wish our build was already over! Wanna swap?…

Great choice of brick, the colour looks great! Can't believe how fast it's going up for you.
