When looking for a builder a family member who is in the trade suggested Oakford. Glad he did as they have given us a good looking, quality home which was a hassle free experience. We have an unusually long, skinny block and they helped us find a design that would fit, but also give us the room we needed. The finished product is so spacious, considering only 7 metres wide!! The selection process was fun as each component a separate adventure so not so mind boggling. Plans were finalized quickly as we were going away, which meant the build co...uld start. It was exciting to return home and find a frame up. A couple of issues on inspection date were soon fixed in time for handover . Cost wise the original estimate was pretty close to final figure. An unknown underground tank was found on the property at time of excavation which had to be removed and dumped which added to the cost. Otherwise the build was done in the time predicted. We just love being there!! And plenty of room for the family.

My cracked bricks!
I would like to express my disappointment with Oakford Homes. I love my Oakford home, well I did until the outside brickwork started to crack.
Their 25 year Structural Warranty led me to believe that the damage would be repaired! After numerous emails & without coming out to see the damage, I have been advised that clause 23.1 covers the builder "we do not have to fix any problem caused by abuse, wear & tear, normal shrinkage or movement" & I have been told by their "client liaison officer" that Oakford Homes will not provide any assistance wi...

Questions & Answers
How can I obtain a ball park price on an Oakford design so that I will have some idea of what I can spend on a block of land..?
First time home builders and we are looking into Oakford homes but the quotes we are getting seem to be a lot cheaper than other companies which seems to worry me slightly. I was wondering if anyone has built with them and could give a rough idea of how much the final cost was compared to the starting quote? we are not looking for fancy high class products as we are young and would rather build within budget and upgrade latter where possible. Any help or advice would be very welcome. Thanks
I wouldn't be too concerned with the price. We found oakford to be exceptional value and having built before understood all the different specs. They're specs are in most cases better than the others ...for a lot less. I'm not sure why, maybe ask them, but I suspect their margins are smaller and therefore you save. The quality wasn't compromised either. I think you will find building with them and very easy process.
Who did you end up building with? And what was your experience like?
