Building with Metricon

Our builder organised ours, it was already installed long before handover.

Does builder top up soil to cover up waffle slab edges?

Its pretty much up to you to do it. Ours was left exposed and we were told when we landscaped where to take the level up to.

Being pregnant and overheated is not fun.

Bypassed M and gone straight to the company responsible for the unit (courtesy of our SS). Reckons is a motherboard issue, which isnt a surprise as we were told there…

Telstra were equally painful. We went with TPG, connection set up the same day and modem arrived ready to go a few days later. No technician required.

We did the digging ourselves and I got someone from airtasker to remove it.

You shouldnt have too much issue getting keys before Christmas, assuming they arent big issues.

Garage on the boundary

That was my thinking too; built to boundary usually means ON the boundary, so no fence required.

You should be provided with a waterproofing certificate at completion anyway.

And we're officially Clipsaled. So it can be done. Though M told them to ignore any points in cabinetry

Switches and points are in the process of being swapped over as we speak.
Also waiting on an IKEA delivery so I can get some shelving set up.

We didnt do ours as the internal door is usually closed.

We didn't bother with the front door give how little glass there is.
