Looks great! That’s pretty much the exact same timeline we’re running on now too. Gyprock took just over a week to finish and staircase/waterproofing/architraves/doors are all going in this week…

I’m so sorry to hear that you still have issues, getting them fixed before you move in is probably the better solution though. How long do they think to fix…
