I guess , we will buy all appliances from outside and put all 30 k towards the upgrades. Yes for 5 bedrooms and 9 ft ceiling we have to pay at sales centre.
I'm not sure about how much they will charge for the hardwood on main floor , by research and looking at the size of walnut layout , I believe @10k.
Here are some prices , I was able to fetch from Internet search( these can be totally off)

Ac @5k
Potlights @250/300 per light.
Underpads for carpet and the carpet itself @2.5 k
Stone around fireplace @1.5k
Hardwood on main floor @10k
Double sink 1.2 k
Glass shower enclosure 2.2k

I was not able to find price for
level 2 paints
Additional gas, electric and media points
upgraded kitchen cabinets
Not sure if they give central vacuum rough ins
Also no idea about how is their standard granite ...


So 30 k can't stand long for basic upgrades of walnut c. I believe The premium for lot 150 is 7.5 or 10 k. And for lot149 25 k. The houses will have lookout basement.

Lots of math to do.. I hope these houses atleast hold their current values in future... I was surprised when the designer in the design centre was asking what did you get in your deals .. Apparently everybody have some kind of unique deals ... Like hardwood , granite etc

Thanks again

Regards
If you're spending that much money, might also be an idea to go next door to Tartan and see what they have to offer for the same size. They have bigger lots as well I see. 45' instead of 43' at Mattamy, and also a true 102' depth....

Could be worth the look.

These prices all sound about right for Walnut C.

- Pot lights were $1277 for 6.
- Glass shower was $2730 but we got the Super Shower option
- We did not upgrade carpet, just under pad ... $1812
- We did a basic tile surround on fireplace which was $25
- Double sinks were $1015 + undermount sinks were each $247
- AC was aroun 4k from what I remember but I can get much cheaper privately after researching.
- We had the included hardwood so hard to compare cost going from no hardwood on main.

- Level 2 paint package, whole house was $1609
- Cat 6 jacks $219
- Add electrical $160
- additional Cable $160
- We went to second level kitchen cabinets (chefs / master package) $2387
- Master package was $5000 - Lighting, top drawer construction, etc.
- We didn't do central vac
- standard granite was 3 choices we did not like. Level 2 upgrade for this kitchen was $2800

What lot did you buy?

We drove by the site yesterday and walked down Palmeto. They have the lot numbers labelled. Happy not to have a power box on ours!
