That’s interesting. They have done it above all windows and external doors, just not internal.
I’ll have to look into it.

It was more of the odd light shower this morning in our area. Just enough to be annoying!

Well the guys surprised us and did a half day today (Saturday), even though there was a bit of rain around.

We thought about doing the recycled bricks on our interior feature wall, but we were afraid of the cost and also the finished product. Being a recycled brick, you never…

You're right, it's at the back so I'm not really worried. I just hope they're a little more selective elsewhere, especially the pillars at the front and on our internal…

It's actually hard to believe how much they've done in 4 days. The quality of the work itself looks good, just a bit fussy when…

After we saw the high ceilings in a few display homes it was on our ‘non-negotiables’ list.
The other option we liked was the raked ceiling in the living room,…

Increased site costs

Initial estimate was $13k. Once they had done the survey and adjusted estimates for the water run-in, etc it came back at $24k, because of the additional earthworks and retaining…

That sounds similar to us. We initially thought our land was flat but after the survey we discovered we were wrong.... Had to retain down both sides and at the…

It’s exciting when it starts. If it’s anything like ours has been so far, once they start they really get stuck into it.
Good Luck.
