Tender Appointment Confirmed

Received an email from Samantha Skrzpiec the Customer Service Administrator at Eden Brae Homes early this morning.

Tender Appointment set down for 9th June 2016 at 11am!

Getting excited as this is all starting to get moving and happening!

Deletion of "Multi" room but upgraded of other items.

Received a call from Sara Amorelli in regards to our plans for the Waldorf 50.

Unfortunately due to the "Multi" room where it was proposed to fill the void area on the first floor it now exceeds the first floor site coverage allowance.

Apparently, the permissable first floor coverage was meant to only be 30% of 180.1m2 but we were way over it.  As the variation for the room costed $6,480 I did not want to give away the value that we had received from Eden Brae.

As a result, to ensure that the plans will meet council specifications I had no choice but to drop the variation for the "Multi" room however I was allowed to put the amount back into other items.

We decided to upgrade the following items for that amount:

The Gallery (Which would have been just an empty space if we didn't upgrade); andProvide glass doors to the pantry.
I guess you win and lose sometimes.

Currently Eden Brae Homes has a $1 Sale for multiple upgrades so we definitely took full advantage of those.  These included the: Stone benchtops to kitchen, bath & ensuite;Premium roof upgrade;Higher ceilings; andSmeg Kitchen Appliances Package (90mm Cooktop, oven, rangehood and dishwasher). In addition to this was the Prestige Series Luxury Inclusions.
The original Home & Land Package was $1,349,900 and by the way this is a fixed price which includes landscaping, turf to both back and front, fencing, retaining walls and a clothes line.
We decided to upgrade from the Waldorf 48 to the Waldorf 50.  Primarily, we didn't like the Master Bedroom (BED 1) door to be facing directly towards the staircase.  Yes ap…

Over the weekend, we decided to start looking at property in the Kellyville area  We started looking and were driving up towards Allam's Hillrise Estate.  As we were coming back down towards Kellyville on Barry Road, we saw land and home packages being sold by Eden Brae's consultant Jim Busine.  As we were already looking to build an Eden Brae Home we decided to take a look and talk to Kevin Huynh from Eden Brae Homes at Homeworld Kellyville to talk about Stage 3, Lot 17 in Mapleton Grove and expressed a…
