Yesterday we were supposed to accept our tender, however due to a couple of amounts still missing, we have been given until Tuesday to decide if we are going to accept. For anyone interested in Eden Brae, the $5,000.00 rebate will continue until the end of the month.
At present we are grateful we did not go with the builder we were certain we would build with. I believe ProCorp has brought in administrators (I'm not quite sure how it all works) but people on the homeone forum have mentioned (and we have seen in Oran Park) homes incomplete, with fencing and portaloos removed. Very sad to see.
This (a builder going under) was one of my fears at the beginning of our journey. How do you know how well a company are doing? How can you trust people you don't know, to be completely honest with you? Would they even be aware if the company was doing poorly? The HIA website offers media releases. One which may be of some interest, is located here.
The info that may be useful:
Today we went via Home Options Gallery and DiLorenzo to have another look at the tiles and carpet we are keen on. We're pretty sure we have made the right decision.
For the main bathroom (and grey tile to go in laundry also):For the ensuite:
After DiLorenzo we visited Oran Park as the latest release went on sale today. Sales staff said about 20 or so lots were sold. We also noticed that all but 2 or 3 lots in our release have been sold. In exciting news, they are starting to work on services in our area. Gas, NBN, Water etc. Plus we noticed some additional pegs in the soil. Not sure what that's all about but any progress is exciting for us.
