Initial Meeting with Eden Brae

Sunday 6th June 2010

We decided to go to Homeworld at Kellyville to walk around the house we had been dreaming about for the past two years. The Eden Brae Entertainer. We had all but built this house in our heads including the furnishings!

That weekend we decided that we would approach Bede at Eden Brae to ask about "when will building start?" and "how much are we are approximately looking at?". Glad we did, as that weekend the price of the house went up $15k and so did all the extras. 

At our first meeting with Bede we selected the following:

  • Entertainer 35 
  • Contemporary Facade with deletion of the gable roof and addition of a hip room.
  • Balcony in full render and entry archway squared off.

We also selected the following upgrades:

  • 1/2 price Air Con and Kitchen Package
  • Change wine rack to a storage cupboard with shelving
  • Increased ceiling height
  • Added feature doors to media room and study
  • Add bi-fold doors and window to back room
  • Add stained entry stairs and balustrade
  • Add a door to under-stairs
  • Increase shower size in en-suite.

We now had to organise 7 weeks of stalling, as the husband was going to the US for work and wasn't available for colour selections and contract signing. Luckily for us everything you do for a house takes forever to come together!
