Default Heathwood Traditions, Milton

I was hoping to get a community forum started here for all Heathwood Traditions home buyers. Register to post your experiences with their Upgrades/Decor Centre. What was a the absolute must-haves? What do you now really wish you had done and who did upgrades after closing. Who did you hire to do them. All the help and advice will be appreciated!

Default Which model did you buy?

My daughter is also a 'newbie' to HT in Milton. She closes in December on Dunca Lane. I bought one of the last sites on Holloway Terrace. I will let you know if i hear of a good carpenter! What upgrades did you get?

Default Model: Lexington

We bought on Main street. Focused our upgrades on hardwood floors and upgraded kitchen. Thats pretty much it. A bit of extra electrical here and there and hundreds of dollars later. Found everything else to be nuts in pricing. I really wanted to put a clawfoot tub in the ensuite but to do the tub and the plumbing it was in the neighbourhood of 8k. Upgrading just tiles so something nice with accents was about 5k. just about had a stroke!

I always recommend focusing on structural stuff & things that are hard or impossible to do later.
Anything "cosmetic" like paint, granite, door levers, hardwood floors, etc. can easily be done after closing for less $.

Not sure how much you want to spend, but if you want a really good job, there is a place called Terra Cotta Woodworks Inc in nearby Caledon that do a fine job..worthy of the Lexington Model!
