Hi all,

Just wondering if anybody changed the double doors between the kitchen and siting room in the Ash. I'm trying to find out if its possible to change the solid doors for ones with glass to allow some light through. If anyone has any info I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

No movement then since I last heard. Thanks.

Is this a problem on Irish Rail's side (they do have budget issues ongoing for a few years now) or the development company who built it (I assume that was Ballymore)?

I think you might be confusing the empty retail unit/sport equipment storage on the north side of the canal for the train station? The haven't broken ground on the train station which will be on the south side of the canal.

Hi, intending to lay laminates but Munster Joinery going on holiday so they've said it'll be at least two weeks before they could assess whether they can raise the doors to account for the 8mm floors and 3mm underlay. I don't really fancy plaining these myself as not something I've done before. Has anyone else laid their own laminate floor and what do you do about the doors?

It's not Munster Joinery who would do this anyway I don't think. It's the guys who do the internal doors. Although Munster Joinery would be responsible for the front and back doors.

I'll pm you a number of someone to contact for the internal doors at least.

The chap who laid our laminate flooring done all the doors and door frames himself. He was very good.

Ballymore have informed me that the wood is Deal wood which is a softwood:

https://www.quora.com/What-is-deal-wood
"“Deal” is a word, used mostly in the UK, to refer to unspecified inexpensive softwood, usually pine. There are no real characteristics that define deal; anything that is cheap, soft, and generally nondescript would qualify as deal."

Phase 3

Hi,

I'm interested in buying one of the four bed houses in phase 3 (most likely the willows but maybe something else). I was wondering if anyone minded sharing what price they paid in phase 1 or 2. I spoke with the agency today and they were quoting me 435,000 but looking at the property price register and i can see that the most expensive house sold in the area in the last year is 405,000 which means they have hicked the price up 30,000 in just 6 months. Sounds like a bit too high of a jump.

Any feedback would be appreciated, if you don't want to publicise then feel free to pm me.

Thanks

You should note that for new builds the ppr excludes VAT so the prices appear cheaper then what was paid. I think it's 13.5% less then actual price.

The prices for each phase are earlier in the thread. Try searching for the more unusual house styles and you should be able to find them fairly quickly. Add €10k for a second parking spot.

Specific location and garden size also play a role, i.e. new Heron's along the canal are quite a bit more expensive than ones without a canal view.

Price increases with:
Phase, later phases paying quite a bit more.
Extra car parking spot.
larger garden.
location, does it have a canal view.

HTB would not have been about for some of the earlier purchases either.

Hi all, for those that have already laid laminate floors, what did you choose for flooring in the kitchen, did you go for laminate throughout or so ceramic / vinyl / something else for the kitchen?
