Good luck to all those waiting on a sale

How long do they estimate for completing your build? My sister waited 2 years! for hers to be built, but it was up in the hills in Roleystone. Not sure if that makes a difference?
Some say it can be built in 27 weeks! Does anyone know what the norm is

They say 12 months from when you instruct them, we did that in Sept07 and we delayed the prestart a bit because they said they needed us there in person. However we got a friend to do it for us, and I think this delayed us about 2 months. They say that it should be ready Oct/Novemebr time, but of course we shall see

It seems to be about 6 months planning approval / design etc followed by 6 months to build. Our just took longer for the first part as we had a mortgage hold up (start of the credit crunch!) and also with some docs having to be sent via post it would take 2 weeks from them to us and back again. So far we've been pretty much on track

We arrive 28th August last year, View the show houses in Settlershills, Baldivis the first weekend, Put a deposit on a 3/2 on a brand new development the next week end. There was a 6 week delay with buying the plot as the Titles had not been finalised. Prestart the week before Xmas and awith xmas it delayed final plans and building licenses a few weeks. We went slab down in Feb, First brick went down Easter week, We went to Lock up last week and as our package includes all fittings inside (Tiles, carpets, Kitchen etc) it will take slightly longer till we get the keys but we are expecting to move in within the next 8-12 weeks.

With the Interest rates rises and such they say the building of new houses has slowed (All the more trades available to work on ours) but as our house is one of 12 in a development that are being build by the same builder (Content Living) that may be the reason that ours has gone up pretty quickly.

If your wanting to live near to were you work the Kelmscott hills are nice. Heard a few dodgy things about Armadale but i'm not there yet so not an expert. Visited last October & it looked OKish !!
