"It’s crazy, it’s a really awesome feeling to think just where it started and how quickly it came about. It’s kinda crazy, kinda awesome but I absolutely loved every minute of it too."
In March 2020, now first home owners Harrison and Breanna started their journey building with Brighton. Signing on to be a customer at the start of a global pandemic didn't alter their dreams of being first home owners at such a young age. "Considering it was crazy to think that we together were having our own house built. It was a wild time. From sitting there in a display home going this looks pretty to a week later, Breanna came to me and said we could just get one if wanted", Harrison said.
Building the single-storey Tranquility home design as part of the Studio Collection, Harrison and Breanna were admittedly inexperienced going into their first home build in Brisbane's South, however, found the Brighton team to help them out every single step of the way. "We had no idea because we had never built before and we've never had friends or family that built before. We had no idea inclusions were a thing. We went through all the different books and stuff you have with the inclusions for the gallery and studio collections and we started looking through and there's actually a lot that’s included. Like the washing machine, the dryer the fridge, the stove top. The air con, steel frame being included. That was crazy when we found out that all of that was included in the base price."
Harrison went on to explain, "that was the other really helpful thing about our Building & Design Consultant. Given he had been in the business a long time he knew certain things that we would need. So when he built us our first quote he included things like driveways and made sure we understood what site works were and stuff like that so we weren’t going to get hit with any hidden fees or not realizing that it wasn’t included or that they wouldn’t do that for us. He went through line by line with everything." Breanna added, "he even adjusted the house plan because he knew that it wouldn’t work for us."
