Are you sure it's there and not in Heartland, with a different developer than Dartwest? These are all just the Dartwest releases.

Building inspector - should we get one?

I have had two during construction, one before internal lining start... They check frame, bricks then, and then again at practical completion, checking everything before settlement and handover.

Its good to ask lots of questions. Once I signed my contract there were no other costs... Prices were fixed. Bricks are finished. So half way there.
