Hi!
Inspired just do the floor plan design. They are small so don't employ their own builders/tradies and so they give Arden that task. I'm sure there's some sort of agreement…

Ouch!! I'm scared to find out our now .. athough we have $50k in the contract at the moment, 3m fall but no fill. Still, that's gotta hurt.
