Hi Humphrey29,
The rear roller door cost was around $1k, I’d have to check docs for an exact price if you need it.
All internal doors including stackers and front door are…

That seems very logical but our rent is just over $2k per month so a significant amount, especially when we’re paying a mortgage as well. We’re paid up until…

Hi Rachel,
Yes our gas line is in, our build has been in such a weird order based on others I’ve followed.

Soooo today marks 34.5 weeks or 242 days and the best I’ve got is an estimated NHP of 30/5. The build is still moving at a snails pace so…

Hi pEast,
I actually ended up cancelling that inspection. And no they didn’t waterproof behind the vanities.
Found some old pics:

Still no idea when it will be finished, had a site…

Oh how disappointing. So many others that are building the Aegean have swapped the theatre & study. What a shame it’s not an option anymore.
