We paid for our finished basement, and even though they're offering the free basement now, we know we won't get that money back. Thankfully we paid less than the current price for the basement, and the house, so we end up even now (with design centre bonus and old house/basement price).

I've heard the deal runs until the end of June only.
That is a good point to consider...how much the house has gone up, minus the design center bonus and how much a finished basement would cost now.

I did email to see what they have to say...I will update when I hear back.

We are child-free at this time...although we plan on raising our first children as Sohowesterners..

We do have a 9 month old female English Bulldog
We have 2 kids, 6 and 3 with a 18 month old Mini Schnauzer.

Just heard back and with the jump in price of the Carlan model ($7000), the design center bonus ($5000), another bonus we got at Xmas time ($2500) and the new price for a finished basement...we are ahead of the game

Now my only beef is that they may not let us change the location of our basement fireplace...I find this sort of funny as we have no issues paying for the change request and the ground is not even dug for our lot...

We will see what happens....

Oh, that's good about coming out ahead.

We had some issues about not being allowed certain things we thought we ought to be allowed to have, but sometimes there were things we hadn't known about in terms of where services come in and where things are in the walls. I hope you get your fireplace issue sorted out in any case!

We stopped in to SohoWest on the weekend to take a look at the progression of the homes and ask some more questions to the sales staff.
It seems that the security cameras were put up as there were some break ins around the time that they were to be holding the Open House BBQ and didn't want anything to happen to the model homes for the big day. You are still more than welcome to make your way down Cope Drive and watch the builds take place.
My wife and I were quite shocked with the vandalism that has taken place on the homes that are being built. With all of this going on, I was surprised that they are putting on the designer doors at this time. Usually it is the full construction doors up until closer to the move in date.
I am hoping that there are a few other SohoWest'erners that join this thread.

Someone at Tartan said we can still drive down Cope to look? Even though they put up a sign and closed the other end?

Those doors were up a long time ago, so I guess long before this started. Maybe they'll reconsider in the future.

Yuppers....they said no problem. I would think the other end (Terry Fox) would stay locked on non working days but were told that we are more than welcome to watch the build progress. It was only at this time that we saw all that vandalism.
