KDR - Dale Alcock Eastern suburbs - Aggregate

A long time since I've posted any update. Things have been relatively slow at the new house with no particular rooms or 'tasks' completed. Outdoors - we've been somewhat limited…

Feedback - Sapphire or Barrier Reef Pools

Looks stunning PE. We signed up with BR a couple of weeks ago. Pool due to go in at the end of March.

Thanks PE. I hope it goes in with no dramas. We're likely to sign up in the morning... Might have to see how quick they can get it in, especially…

Not sure if they're in Sydney. The one being discussed is in Perth, although I believe they're a QLD company.

Thanks MJ. Two good reviews on here for Sapphire is encouraging. Unfortunately the sales rep never got back to me after I asked to contact a few recent customers. Rang…

Thank Gilbert. Appreciate the response - also leaning the same way at the moment.

Thanks for the feedback Jellbell. Glad to hear the project has gone really well for you! We're looking at the Grandeur and the Regal. Have had really mixed feedback…

Long time since I've stopped in Jellbell.... It's looking amazing! I love your flooring! Would have loved something similar, but they would have already been trashed by our lab. …

Looking for anyone with feedback on either of these companies. I've obviously searched the forums already - we probably like the look of the Sapphire pool and its layout…

Trixee, it's coming along so well.... The front has come up a treat.!
Having gone through the building journey, I'm always checking out any new build that I pass! On our…

Thanks - not sure we have the stomach to go through the building commission process. Also quite messy with us using a separate contractor for the honing. Fairly easy for…

Thanks all.
Fence colour is a great contrast with the greenery! Can't wait to paint the sections of old asbestos and plant the garden!
No luck with concrete company... Round in circles…

That was the compromise. Was a pretty messy outcome in the end. Pretty sure there'll be no warranties - bitterly disappointed with the entire job - the honed surface is…

Been a big few weeks! We've been in the new house for a fortnight now and we're loving the new house. I'll add some photos soonish, but here's a list…

Trixee - sounds like I've missed a couple of tough weeks on your build. It doesn't get any easier getting towards the end and all of the errors/frustrations just…

Looking great Jellbell. PCI mustn't be too far away! Love the elevation... Really cool that it changes depending upon the light!

Trees, I've seen a post on the forum that you've had Velvetene lawn. Would you recommend it? I'd love to get away from a couch grass, but I don't think…

Thanks Beazley, we'll keep that in mind if we redo it.

Looking great Trixee. We love the dieskau colour and used it on the interior of kitchen and living in the current house.

Long story Trees, but they were supposed to be there on Monday. We had our bobcat guy lined up to finish off the earthworks and the aggregate guys didn't show…

Thanks again! It's like my land is vexed with concrete issues. You're right on variability. It ranges from 65mm to 90mm and that's just along the edges! The…

Plenty of practice Jellbell, plus I didn't have to cut in!
So flooring has finished including carpets. We made a snap decision to put skirting boards in. They look great,…
