Default Greenpark, Starlane, treasure Hill Final phase

We are current Starlane homeowners from a few years ago I believe the second phase.
We sold our house, and have now bought with Treasure Hill in the final phase released a few weeks ago.
We are on Win Timber's with a closing date of November 3rd 2011.
Anyone else in the new phase?
We are on lot #37 Lapis 11. So excited, but it feels like forever and a day away!

We bought the house we're in right now with starlane.
So far so good. We had a few minor issues with the house - nothing major.
They don't do PDI's which sucks, so we just snuck in instead and did our own PDI.

Smile Don't do PDI??

Hi DDeVore,

What do you mean don't do PDI? I thought PDI is mandory by Tarion, isn't it?

By the way, do you know if we could visit the decorate center before our appointment? I am really concern about the cabinet, I saw the standard cabinets they display at the sales center are really out fashion, would that be more choice we could choose from the decorate center? I like maple with expresso color....

Thanks
Smile

I think the poster meant pre dry wall inspection. Not PDI. We are starlane owners too and have just moved in. Pre delivery inspection of course is done. Most of them happening very late but it is done !

As for inquiry on the cabinet, just go with the standard. Save your money and upgrade later. Indeed, the choices are not too strong.

Default 9" ceiling

Hi Kaydy,

How do you think 9' ceiling, have you upgrade for 9' ceiling? How important to have 9' ceiling?

Thanks

Yes sorry, I meant pre drywall. Sorry for the confusion.
We too are waiting to upgrade our cabinet's afterwards.
As for the 9' ceilings, they make a house seem so much bigger, however make sure that they will allow the 9' ceilings. We were supposed to have 9' ceilings in our home, however something about the grade not allowing it, they were unable to do it.
Starlane did however issue us a credit towards the house for the ceiling issue.
As for how importane it is, it boils down to personal decision really...

Default upgarde

Hi DDeVore,

Thank you for your information.

We do not have a big budget for the upgrade, we are thinking either upgrade to 9" ceiling or the kitchen cabinet. I know the 9" ceiling will cost about $8,000 - $9,000.00 it is a huge amount.

we have also purchased a starlane home....and had no major issues.

8 ft vs. 9ft is personal preference, we stuck with the 8 instead...we rather use the money else were. To us, we didn't see a huge difference.

The standard kitchen cabinets are old fashion (that is like that with all builders).....i would say if you like the maple look..u are looking at least at...upgrade 2.

You are able to visit the decor center before hand --- weekends only. No appointments required.

The kitchen company is Selba and they have a website that you can visit. Not sure if you can go to the showroom.

Good Luck!!!!

Higher ceilings also mean higher energy costs. You can find the formula on the net, but the facts are a bit startling in comparison.
