Recently there has been a lot of development in our area. I noticed two builders starting the project at the same time, yet one has complete the project and the other has just completed the foundation.
Chipp -I find this an interesting question however very difficult to answer as each person's experience is so different and a builder that suits one person, could maybe not suit the next person.
I have not built a new house in Perth for years however have done large alterations, and this time I just contacted each trade myself and did not use a builder.
This worked out find for me and probably saved me a lot of money.
I did not even get 2 or 3 quotes in some instances, as liked the first one and considered the price reasonable.
