Kit Homes Expectations/Build Advice?

Hi there,

My partner and I have just purchased land in Geelong for 265k.
We have a max budget of 750k all up for the land and the build.
We ideally want to keep it under 700k though.
We wanted to build with Boutique and loved their “Providence” design but our block is an 800sqm block and has approx 5m fall from back to front. Unfortunately as our block isn’t flat Boutique has pretty much put us in the top hard basket.
Obviously we were disappointed because we LOVED the design and the Hamptons facade.
Today we found Storybook Designer Homes which are pretty much kit homes and they build to lock up and you source your own trades.
Anyone have any experiences with Storybook or can anyone give me an idea on what to expect with these homes?
Will we be able to build within our budget?
Also if anyone has any recommendations for builders in the Geelong area that would be greatly appreciated.

What we are looking for -
4 bedrooms
3 living rooms
Study (preferred but not essential)
Master with large walk in robes and ensuite
