Just wondering if anyone has puchased a town in the Ancastor Arbor community?

2009-10-21, 06:55 PM
Hi, I've purchased a townhome in Ancaster Arbor as well. I'm closing in May 2010. When are you closing?

2009-11-12, 10:05 PM
We are closing end of July. We are one of the last ones.
What lot # are you?

2010-06-12, 10:45 AM

2010-06-14, 12:39 PM

2010-06-15, 11:49 PM
@ Jenny&Paul and Ancaster2010 have you selected all your choices for the interior?

2010-06-16, 07:03 PM
Yes, we had completed in 2009 december.

2010-06-22, 02:09 PM
Hi all,

We purchased a detached home in Phase 1b. Closing date is Jan 2011. So far, we've only been pushed out once.

Hello Neighbour

I have purchased phrase 1b detached house, closing late Nov 2010, I haven't received any delay notice, does anyone purchase the Phrase 1b and received delay on closing? Thank you.

Hi All,

I purchased a Detached Phase 1A in October 2008 on Cranston Street. I am currently on my third delay, latest closing is December 2010 (which I believe is my "firm date" that they can't push any further without compensating).

So for those of you in 1B I would suspect delays could still occur... Good luck!

2010-06-30, 09:33 PM
you purchased in 2008 and your house still is not ready. Wow i dont know if i would be able to wait that long for a house. Why so long?

Hi David,

As i mentioned, so far we have been pushed only once. We are in the same phase as you, but have a Jan 2011 closing. i've been driving by the survey every week, and they still haven't started any foundations for detached homes yet. Only townhomes. i might stop driving by there for a while, as it's getting depressing :)

Anyone else here on Emick Drive?


2010-07-02, 10:52 PM
I was supposed to close April 1, 2010 as my original date. So when I purchased in Oct 2008 it wasn't THAT long (although it still felt far away!).

I've been told by Mattamy they're starting detached construction the first week of July and that my foundation should go in towards the end of the month.

Here's hoping!

2010-07-03, 10:23 PM
wow sounds like I better prepare for a delay since I seem to be the last phase to be built....

good to know

thanks :)

We have bought a detached on Peer Court as well. 1st closing date is
April 2011, although I am preparing to move in on our 2nd closing date
of August 2011. We have heard that there were
delays in the townhouses. We have picked out our brick and are
awaiting a call to pick out the interior. The Design Center has said that
they have already started to work on Phase 2 as far as picking out your
interior. Very peaceful. Can't wait to be there! I know it is
hard with delays. I have faith in Mattamy and know that they are doing their
best. There are some situations which are really beyond their control.
Take care and please keep us updated if anyone hears more about the progress.... thanks!

2010-07-12, 09:55 AM
Any further information about the project ? are the detached homes on schedule ?

2010-07-17, 04:54 PM
Going out to take a look around next weekend. I'll let you know how it's

2010-07-18, 04:57 PM
I took a drive around the survey this weekend. Some detached homes have started (lots 112 and 113) right behind the elementary school on Emick Street. Other lots behind the school have foundations in or have the holes dug. Holes for foundations have also been dug on Cranston Street.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel now!


2010-07-19, 12:59 AM
well that is great news!! Keep it up Mattamy :)

2010-07-31, 08:41 AM
I purchased a detached on Cranston Street. They haven't dug the foundation on my site yet. Keep delaying. A bit worry about their quality now.

2010-08-01, 05:36 PM
I drove around the site today, saw many foundations and some detached structures going up!

Does anyone know how you figure out your lot stick since they are not labelled? Is it by the orange set of wires, the blue stick or orange stick??


2010-08-03, 11:43 AM
Our closing date is October 6th 2010 and I was wondering if anyone in the townhomes have heard if they will be able to move in early because it looks like its moving along well.

2010-08-16, 02:05 PM
Hello everyone! wanted to let you know I just got back from my design appt and they told me that Mattamy is one month ahead of their schedule!!

2010-08-18, 10:25 AM
That's great news Arbor2011! We were told our date of Jan 23 2011 is safe (they wouldn't guarantee it of course). Our foundation should go in around October and our frame walk-through will be in November.

2010-09-22, 06:13 PM
WOW I drove by the site on sunday and so many houses built... and almost all foundations in except for my phase :( oh well

For those of you closing this year you must be getting quite anxious and excited!!!!

2010-09-23, 02:04 PM
Hey guys,

I just received email confirmation my house has started (and it wasn't supposed to start until early October).

At least thats good news for half the subdivision (not on the school half)

2010-09-29, 11:34 PM
Does anyone know if Ancaster has hard or soft water?? Apparently it makes a difference in what dishwasher you buy

2010-10-21, 04:04 PM
Those a-holes from Mattamy just sent us an email that our Jan 23 closing date is not possible. New closing on Mar 10, 2011. The thing i don't understand is they started framing this week. We still have 3 months to go. So that statement that they made at Mattamy U about no more pushes was a load of BS.

Anyone else get this?

2010-10-27, 04:08 PM
So i heard from Mattamy on the reason we were pushed. It was the weather....that's right, the weather. Apparently, they went a week with no production because of the rain and the flucuation between hot and cold temperatures. They also could not find another contracting company to come in and help them catch up.

According to Lori, a lot of people in phase 1b were affected by this.

2010-11-01, 01:28 PM
Hi everyone.

I just got a house on Peer Court and I was wondering if anyone has heard if there will be delays yet?

2010-11-01, 09:04 PM

My fiancee and I purchased last January 2010 and our closing is supposed to be May 11 2011. We are Lot #90 on Kitty Murray Lane for a detached home. So far, we haven't had any notices that we are getting pushed back at all as I believe we are the last ones being built in the whole community.

We got our email about it being started a few weeks ago as well and was surprised that our foundation is in but were told the building of the house wouldn't start until January.

We're driven by many times it actually seems as though its going up much quicker now.

2010-11-19, 10:51 AM
I just drove by the community and it looks like 90% of the foundations are in. Mine however is not :( Does anyone know if it is too cold to be putting in foundation?

2010-11-28, 06:16 PM
We have a place on Peer Court for March 17, and we are reaching the 90 day deadline to be told of any delays and nothing yet. We were told last week that we were ahaed of schedule, but after reading these posts I'm not feeling to sure. We have 3/4 of a frame with just a roof to go right now. They were working today (sunday) on framing when drove by so maybe they are catching up?

2010-12-02, 01:53 PM
well I went by last Sunday and my footings are in! Peer court is a good working progress!!!!! looks to be on schedule!

2010-12-03, 01:46 PM
I just had my Frame Walkthrough and the supervisor told me that almost all Phase 1b are behind.
I asked for how long and the ones near my house are currently pushed back about a month (I'm lot 184)

2010-12-11, 06:00 AM
If anyone on this has moved in already how does ur house look???

Just got back from Peer Court today. Our house is scheduled to close April 10th and they are already working on the roof. We've not received any delayed notices but with 4 months to go I am optimistic they will be on time.

Hi All,

We purchased on Peer Court with a close date of Mar 30 2011.
We are holding our breath until New Years to have the all clear with no delays.
Please keep your fingers crossed for us too! Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year too!

2010-12-19, 05:31 PM
We have a house on Peer Crt for March 17th, got the word on our 90 day deadline that we will close on time. I did however hear that there were some houses on Peer that will be delayed, but don't know how long or what part of Peer.

2010-12-19, 05:56 PM
We went by our house on Peer Court yesterday and were amazed to see that they had started our frame. The ground floor was already done! Our closing is April 14th 2010 have not heard of any delays for our house.

2010-12-26, 09:24 PM
We received an email that our house will be on time!!! We went by the site and our frame is almost complete!!!

Great news!! WHo are you receiving the updates from? Our closing is april 7th and we have heard nothing from mattamy as of yet on the progress thus far and whether we are on time.


2011-01-01, 08:19 PM
I emailed the Mattamy rep because I hadn't received any updates. The rep told me that they didnt have my email on file so she sent me an email regarding the current progress of my lot.

2011-01-09, 03:17 PM
Hi All,

We bought detached on Roelfson Dr. Originally slated to close in September, we have been pushed twice and now are expecting close on the 23rd of February.

Hard to say if this will happen. They just finished the brick, but there seems like a lot of work to do?

How have the frame walks been going?

2011-01-09, 10:23 PM
Hi Everyone,

We have confirmation that we will be closing on time for March 30th on PEER COURT.

Just a quick note that I will be opening a home daycare once we take possession, please message me if you would like more information for yourself/neighbour/friend.

Thanks so much!

2011-01-20, 12:58 PM
We are closing on March 17 on Peer Crt, frame walk done, and they are ahead on our unit.

2011-01-28, 02:26 PM
So I got the Mattamy University Invitation in the mail today! Hope to see and meet all my new neighbours!!!

2011-02-07, 12:08 PM
Hey All,

Just closed Feb 3,2011. Apparently there were 7 homes that closed on Feb 3 or Feb 4. Closed on time and everything went fairly well. A few minor things that needed/still need to be fixed but thats expected.

2011-02-17, 02:06 PM
well we completed our walk through today! everything looks good and they said they're on time!!

2011-02-19, 03:23 PM
We have bought a detached on Peer Court as well. closing date is
April 21 2011. We missed the Mattamy University night, wondering if anything big was talked about? Also we are just waiting on our frame walk through… cant wait. :D

Hi everyone,

I have recently started my own Interior Decorating business.
Moving into a brand new home there is a lot to do such as window treatments, purchasing furniture, space planning and even painting! Moving into a sub division it's always nice to add personal touches to your house to make it feel like your home. Since I moved into a brand new house I feel like I relate to a lot of your needs and priorities.
