Inspired Homes/Como Homes - waiting for dispensation/permit

First delay and we haven't even started at site yet lol. My CSA forgot about the dispensation we need to apply for, for our tall garage, and she's gone off…

Yeah Inspired/Como are probably still using the same engineers as Arden. I'm ok with it, we're 5149 so have 2m of slope, and they need to make sure the house…

Site costs are back, a small amount over budget but as we are now essentially having 2 split levels across the entire house and garage it's reasonable and not unexpected.…

Yes still happy with our choice. Our land settlement was intense and it was a bit dissappointing that we had to change from a single level to a split. The…

FYI still no site costs but Como did ask us to prove finance .. bit cheeky when we dont actually have a contract cost.

From what I understand the way they built the walls was different to the first engineering report. A lot of us have had rude shocks like this since settlement unfortunately
