Thomas Archer Hue 42 Bayside Build - 2020/21

Is $74k including or excluding pavers and retaining walls? If including then it's pretty cheap. My landscaping has crossed 6 figures and counting. I did reach out to Adam Cox…

Thanks. For us it was around 16k per square. Mind you the prices would have gone up now since we signed the contract. Yes can't escape the traffic control cost.…

For the sliding doors, they have applied caulking from inside on all 4 sides. And for the top of the windows. Some of the windows in bathrooms have all 4…
