argh! metricon

Metricon have really stuffed us around, we were all ready for the 10 week site start but our SC kept stuffing up our paper work and finally told us that we cannot go ahead with the 10 week site start. not happy! We have our colour app on Wednesday at studio m so i am looking forward to that but also not looking forward to seeing all the upgrade prices. I already know i am going to want to upgrade my bricks as i am not happy with any of the cat 1.
I'm not sure how long it takes after colour app for site start but fingers crossed it's not to long of a wait.
The fence between us and our neighbour has been put up and i am not to happy with it as they have left a gap big enough at the bottom for my kids to crawl under, i am sure i will receive the bill shortly and really don't think i should have to pay for such a bad job.
I will update next week with the colours i have chosen.

Santorini 29 @ eynesbury

this is the colours that i want in my kitchen. so excited for the studio M visit

Thursday, May 13, 2010


Ok so the house sold for the third time! we have until the 28th of may to get out. thank god it was unconditional finance. Have not heard from metricon about when our studio m visit will be but i am thinking they would want to hurry up as we opted for the 10 week site start so im not sure how that will all work. Any way just a quick update must get back to packing.

contracts signed!

Contracts have been signed! we also chose to fast track our site start so we will be in by christmas, one little problem though, we have yet to sell our house :( after it already selling two times and falling through both times due to the buyers finance we are hoping 3rd time lucky as i really dont want to be paying for 2 houses and our land.
We have had our land for about 6 months now and cannot wait to start building on it.
we signed the contracts last night so are now waiting for some one from metricon to call us with our studio m appointment and our electrical app.
Our realestate is coming through today with a possible buyer who doesnt need to get finance approved so i have my fingers crossed.

inside the santorini 29

Monday, April 26, 2010


okay so this is my first ever attemp to write a blog, i plan to write about my building process with metricon. My husband and I have just sold our house and are awaiting for that to become unconditional as we also sold the house about 2 months ago and 1 day before the 10% was due the lady who brought it finance fell through so we had to delay building our new house and was hit with a $2000 metricon price rise! We have decided to build the santorini 29 and I have spent the last few days trying to find other blogs that have gone through the same process as i am, and their hard to find.

We have had our walk through with Metricon to work out all the extras in the display home (eynesbury) that we would like and all the things that are not included! if you are building this home DO NOT walk through their enesbury display as it is nothing like the original plans. my husband and I have finally settled on the extras that we really want and got rid of a few things that we didnt need. Now we are waiting for our sc from metricon to approve all our changes so we can sign off on the final plans.
