The stuff I picked up was the obvious stuff like no clearance between mesh and pipes (numerous spots), some sagging top mesh (they'll probably lift this up as they pour,…

We thought no slab today, we were the only ones there at 7, but we've just heard that we're second pour today, and SS will pass on our concerns about…

Plan was to use BE from here and he was available to come down this arvo but we needed confirmation that the setup was going to be complete or basically…

Slab pour is booked for tomorrow, not that we would know if we weren't chasing them to find out when our inspector can do his thing. So we're scrambling…

Is this an unreasonable request?

We also went over our 10 days and the builder didn't bat an eye. We had talked to them about what would happen if we never got finance (or a…

Doesn't seem unreasonable to me. 5 days cooling off seems very short, ours was 10. 5 days is unlikely to be enough to get approval from the bank. …

Thank you! We were about to send of an email saying that we would just take the cygnet, we'll hold off and have another think. The problem is…

Lots of action today. Bedding layer (which was delivered sat) all spread and compacted, trenches dug and 3.2t of steel, pods, and other slab bits and pieces delivered. Maybe we…

Gee they tell us 6-8 months down here. I've seen a couple our size around 5 months but not typically, I think you've done well :-D

Site Costs

No option for fixed cost, new estate, lots of controlled fill, they wouldn't even consider it. We made peace with what we paid in the end, we feel we got…

How frustrating! My fingers are crossed for you, I'm sure it will work out ok in the end. Do you know where any of their other builds are…

That is right, but it's unlikely that it will be M. Talk to people in your area and see what their soil is and what they are paying. …

No one on site today :(. Plumbers left the place a mess yesterday, fence open on three sides, dirt left on the neighbours lot, screw…

It's likely because your soil isn't M class. Depends on where you are located, Victoria is typically H1 or H2. If the builder is willing to quote a…

Upgrading to Class P Waffle Slab

It will depend on the reason it's P. We have P (H2 soil) because of deep controlled fill, so we had to have screw piles. Total extra site…

Screw pile guys we're back on site again this morning. They were using a big screw bit to dig holes this time. No idea why! We need trenches not holes…
