Hi there,

I bought in February and close February 7, 2008 and we bought in Fairwinds (Kanata). I have yet to receive any information regarding when we get a call for Mattamy U or when we should get the design book.

From what I heard, depending on when you bought, Mattamy U takes place 6-8 months before your closing date and the desing book should come your way around the same time frame, maybe longer. I bought a single home so I wouldn't be of much use giving you some upgrade prices but there should be some info around in one of the postings!

I hope you get some concrete answers and congrats on your purchase. It's a pretty exciting time.

Take care,

I bought in August and am moving in (hopefully) Feb 2008. I have my design book, I think it came 2-3 months after I bought. I too bought the Highwood (elevation B) and on lot 41 (on Sonnesta Circle). I haven't received anything from Mattamy U yet either but have been told it's coming up soon!

There's an article about Mattamy in the latest *New Homes* Insert from the Ottawa Sun. It says that Mattamy began releasing Barrhaven Mews homes in January and about 15% has been sold so far. All the widelot traditional townhouses are already gone. Occupancy will be available for January 2008 so I would imagine you guys will be getting the ball rollin' in no time.

Cheers!

So...lots of people that bought in Kanata have their upgrade book and from what I've seen and heard most that have recieved their upgrade book close sometime in Feb or Mar.

They told me that I will receive my booklet within 6months prior to the closing date...

Why are the home owners in Kanata already have received the books and they close later I do...???

Because they'll jack up the prices for barrhaven and they are still figuring out by how much.

This is the thing that I don't quite get, why is getting an *upgrade book* seem to be such a hassle for (Mattamy) owners ?

I don't plan on getting a lot of upgrades so my experience will be limited but when I want to find out how much this and that upgrade would cost, i email/phone the Richcraft sales reps and they have been very accomodating.

Why can't builders let people know this beforehand so that they can better prepare their budgets ? Maybe that will keep some folks away from making the final decision, seeing how the total cost will balloon and I understand that so in that case, why not distributing the booklet via email/secure website to owners who have signed the agreement ?

Canabiz, I certainly wouldn't say that getting the upgrade book was a hassle. We close in August and we have had our book since October. Lots of time to look and work out a budget on upgrades. We haven't had our design appointment yet and we have been very happy with the process so far.

TMA28-

I received the upgrade book 2 weeks ago now and close next February-a little earlier than I expected. Maybe Barrhaven is taking a little longer for reasons unknown.

Let me tell you, once you get the prices things become a lot clearer for budgeting purposes. I hope it comes soon...
