Starting with Selections

So over the last few weeks we've been visiting display homes and starting to make a selection choices just to make things easier when it comes to all our appointments. 

And these are some of the things we've decided on (that we have photos of), most of these are already included in our final price and wont be at any extra charge once we get to selections. ....

Frontage with feature brick portico and timber finishes

Front Pivot door

Garage Door - this will be an upgrade

Exterior Brick colour

Favourite Kitchen colours

Example of having the dark colours on the bottom and the lighter colours on the top

Floor tiles with the stone top for the kitchen

Our free standing bath

We've also decided on our roofing, fascia and gutters colours.  At the moment we have semi-frame less showers included but we are hoping to upgrade them to frame less depending on how much is spent at selections.

Preliminary Contract Signed

Today we had another meeting with Odell to go over the final pricing and plans ready to be submitted to council.  Everything went really smoothly and although Odell did say it came in a little extra than he thought, mainly due to storm water and footings, the price was still within budget and still leaves us with a bit of wriggle room when it comes to finalising our selections.

So our next installment has been paid, the preliminary contract has been signed, we are ready to go to council and are aiming to have our selection appointments within the first 2 weeks of September.  Estimated build start is said to be around November/December 2012 (this is not set in stone though) and Odell said he'd be surprised if it takes longer than 4 months to build.

Feels good to see things progressing ... now on to selections!
