We absolutely adore our home. It's perfect for us, and overall Metricon have done a pretty reasonable job!
We had…

It was 100% agreed to be a defect but the company has yet to come back and fix it, 2.5 weeks after handover... site manager is dealing with it.

Hi Riles! Welcome aboard, even if this thread is soon to dock. Lol

Sheers and last of the pelmets went up today! Cleaners did their thing, but the last of the trades didn't turn up. Handover is still going ahead tomorrow, but time…

Because nothing can just go smoothly... We may be moving our stuff into the garage while we wait for the bank to get their stuff sorted.
Only received final invoice…

I honestly don't think it looks odd!
I tried to grab a pic today but it was too sunny. PCI is tomorrow so will have another crack.

The tiles just butt up to the cornice. We have standard cove, 75mm I believe.
They had trades everywhere today so I didn't grab a better pic, but I'll try…

Painters there today doing final coats on skirting etc after they were put back on over the floors. Clear coat on the staining was all done, and doors hung. Caulking…

Thanks for the feedback. We have PCI on Thursday so we will see what the Site Manager will do about it. I'm thinking they will paint it.

Yes we had the others in our contract. We weren't notified of the change, but were supposed to have been.
These were just installed instead. I was a bit peeved and…

Only pushed back 2 days actually! Not too bad. Could have done it Wednesday but I chose Thurs as I only have 2 of the kids with me that day.…

Floorboards are done, blinds are in (pelmets and sheers next Thursday). Sparkies installed the last of the appliances, lights and wall fittings. Plumbers fit the drain grates on the driveway…

Not sure if anyone has posted these yet, but here are the new Iconic switches.
I'm getting used to them, but they definitely aren't as nice as the slimline impress.

Much worse to the eye. The light was bouncing around and making it hard for my phone camera to pick it up.
I'll make sure the SM gets someone in to…

It's the Dulux acrylic render. Name escapes me at the moment, but comes pre tinted for the top coat.
Edges looked good from the quick glance I gave it -…

Flooring started today, and cleaners were there. They cleaned all windows and inside cupboards. Won't be back till after everyone has finished next week for the final clean.
Render is complete…

Silk finish is an upgrade from matt finish. It's in between gloss and matt. Nice sheen without the fingerprint issues of full gloss.
