Variations and an Update

We've been a bit quiet lately, more so because of work and basketball commitments taking a priority. It's getting exciting over at Jordan Springs, the display village is now open with 16 homes, and 2 more to open in two weeks time. There are so many houses going up also it's really starting to come together. Here's a shot from the car park yetserday, we also got a free sausage sizzle in our park which was great, we all got to wear our lot numbers but sadly I didn't see any neighbours. I did get to meet 2 couples who read this blog funnily enough, nice to meet James, Deon and Ursula. Looks like we're going to have a nice community of people.

We got our construction loan approved on Friday and we're just waiting on an evaluation to come back on the land (Crazy huh - we've had about 4 of those done in the last month). What this means is we should be able to sign the contract next week and our plans will head into Delfin and Jordan Springs.

We still need to go back into Kurmond Homes and finish of our selections but we delayed that so we could make sure we got the banking stuff out of the way. I assume we'll be back in there next week or the week after to pick internals. We had some external variations which I think were priced pretty good. Some things cheaper then others.

Upgrade to Garage door to Ceder - $395
Maroka Upgrade to front Facade (We had some but we made more Moroka) - $620
Upgrade to Translucent windows to Bathroom, Ensuite and W/C - $172
Upgrade to Translucent on Front Door - $45
Upgrade to Taubmans Jarrah on Front Door - $43

To be honest I'm really happy with this.


  1. I was out there on Saturday as well and it was great to see all the new display homes. Shame I didn't bump into you, I settled on my block which looks to be almost across the road from you (1191) a few weeks ago and am just looking into construction now.

  2. Hi, it was great meeting you as well... :) and thank you very much for the information on your blog!

  3. Same.....oh and you didn't read it

    Cool Ian - I'll look it up, be good to get to know the neighbours.

  4. Missed meeting you last week, as my kids crazy with the clowns and other activities. Got too tied up with them to meet any one else. Your blog was very informative

  5. Hi which cedar garage door are you getting? they charged me $1100? and Moroka they wanted $3500? find the prices quoted are very inconsistent ? I liked the strand and your colours look awesome
