With the deposit made for a PD home, its time to look at the selections/upgrades am prepared to make. We visited the interiors shops on Saturdays for 2-3 weeks. 

One thing that i liked about the Henley selections was you get a price for whatever selection you make. With PD its a hard one! You don't get a pricing on anything and this is when you would really think whether you need the upgrade or not?

At the end of the day, we made the upgrades on what we thought was really required and we needed to stick to the budget....

The colour selection appointment and the tiles selection was scheduled for the last week of March as we were booked in for a April site start, provided the land gets titled.

The tile selection was scheduled early in the morning and since we already had decided on most of the selections, it was really easy on the day of the appointments. 


We selected the Stratos Mocca Polished and grooved tiles for the living, entry,dining and the bathrooms.

This was really the easy bit as we went and straight off told the consultant that we opt for these tiles, and the consultant worked around these for the grout colour, beadings etc...The grooved ones goes under the mirror and for the bathtub.


I had already prepared well in advance about the additional power points and lamps throughout the home. So all i wanted to do was tell the consultant where i need these on the plan. Since i had already planned about this it went smoothly, and also since you get a pricing for all the options with electrical, it is easy to decide and select what you want.

We also opted for a Security pack which costed us approx. $1300.

Since we are in a fiber estate we need to have a data pack as per the requirement of the estate which set us back by $1830.

It took almost 3 hours to finish the electrical and its time for the colour appointment.


One thing i started to hate was no price was offered on the spot, and the standard reply was that "exact pricing would be given at the time of contract".

The colour consultant was really helpful and  gave a lot of options with the selections. This is what we ended up selecting.
