We noticed the same (tradies) using our toilets) even without sewerage! Ew!
We’re in a new development. Worth asking your SS next time you speak to him whether your application is…

Congrats Jen! May I ask if you have gas and sewerage connected yet?
Our PCI was a month ago and we still haven’t had handover. We have a recycled water company…

We’ve gone with the optional balcony on the Manhattan 52 design but with glass balustrades as opposed to brick. We did have to increase the height and translaminate on one…

Great news! Hopefully the 17 months will be a distant memory now that the visual progress begins! This stage was the highlight for me so enjoy!

Oh dear. What happened to your front door?
Wording from our SS was that he’s expecting this Friday, so it isn’t actually booked or confirmed yet. He was doing his best…

Everything seems to drag in the final weeks. We had a great pace with our build but as we moved into internals everything slowed down. What’s most frustrating for us…

Oh wow, sounds like I shouldn’t have any complaints. If it’s any consolation your home does look amazing! Worth the wait!

Hi Navy,
All minor jobs from what I can see. Finishing touch-ups of paint, gyprock, electrical, silicon, another brick clean (as we had some crooked ones replaced) but because it requires…

Thank you. Excited and afraid at the same time that there could be mistakes that will delay handover. Fingers crossed the quality is there.

No it isn’t. Was a surprise to us too but since we’re covering it we haven’t queried this further. Perhaps you can ask a tiler to see if this has…

For those who have had PCI / handover, any advice on what to expect? Also, how long is handover after the final inspection? Ours is scheduled for late next week.

Agreed. We were in the same situation when we signed up. Happy to accommodate as we would have loved the opportunity too but the lack of courtesy was disappointing.

Hey CS199,
