Just bumping this post again as all the houses in the phase have now gone, so hoping someone on here has bought one, just to get some tips and hints and just generally how they're getting on with builders and stuff.

Hi @Aaron15, we also got one of the houses from this phase. The auctioneer gave us a completely unrealistic estimate last year but things are progressing since we are in contact with the builder. 
The only problem I had until now is the wall in the master bedroom. I don't understand why that step there, they told me they had to put extra insulation but I expect that you can level the wall after that. Is it the same in your house? How are you getting on after your post?

Finally, someone who bought in the same phase .

We only picked out the flooring and kitchen two weeks ago, so we haven’t been in our house yet , what is the problem with the wall? Because I presume it will be a possible problem for me too.

The Glades, Oldgrange Wood

Hey, I've bought one of the houses also. Noticed the step there in the master bedroom, only comes out an inch or so, so wasn't too worried about it myself, however I did enquire about it and they said it was for insulation purposes.
I've found everything has gone seamlessly so far. Floors were done recently, kitchen went in on Friday, the roads and walls and gardens are coming along too.

Are you guys from Kildare? Im a Dub and the other half is Cavan.

Our snag was done last month and they went through the list quickly. Only open item is to replace one of the doors in the kitchen, so no big deal. 
Now just waiting for the bank so we should be in soon, can't wait

We put our deposit down 4-5 weeks after putting or booking deposit down, we paid out 10% all together so I can’t really answer that question, but if you explain the situation I’m sure they’ll understand, revenue are quick enough with the help to buy so you should be ok, have you bought in the new phase that’s just launched?
