Why such a big difference - was it EB's fault or other things that caused such a delay?
There fault - they would say something would take 2 weeks and 4…

For those discussing wait times - My start date was July and they started in December. Its so frustrating.

I'm having my inspection tomorrow morning but all the work hasn't been finished yet - so unless its done by 10 am tomorrow either we won't settle or I'll settle…

It's Post Contract Variation. Basically anything you want to change after you sign the initial contract but before all the final plans are worked out.

I've gone through it a few times and all I have found was the microwave added was the incorrect one and soap holders added when we said not to add…

Well.... sort of. At PCI they said last Friday, then it became today, then tomorrow, now its this Friday. But I'll…

Seriously? White isn't in the standard range? That is really daft...
I think its because they do 3 coats of white paint on the walls but the colours they just do…

But not white. Its probably better to go to the home option gallery and ask them. I went through the Taubmanns range and chose some colours - most of them…

I think that the last plan would work quite well. I would probably put a cavity slider on the WIR as well, just to make things a little less congested…

Thanks - maybe things are looking a little up. My mum just drove by the house and the painters and inside doing prep work now. They said they'll be there…

I had my PCI last Monday and since then 1 piece of gutter was replaced,…

Attn: All lawson builders. Does anybody know what the wall between the vanity and toilet on the ensuite looks like, or a photo of said wall?
Just curious as to…

I decided against them in our bathrooms, with the textured glass and a few pretty things on the windowsill i think i will like that more...

I was definitely very excited after PCI on Monday - particularly…

Also has anyone had shutters put in their bathroom. Thinking of putting them in above the bath as we have quite a big window but not sure how they cope…

You could always get other colour bricks and then render your letterbox - I've seen that done and it can look very nice. Maybe you could then paint it one…

that's so frustrating! Maybe your SS is waiting to see what you pick up tomorrow and then get the tradies back one time, not multiple visits.

I went for the matt finish handles - to avoid having to clean then regularly to get the fingerprint marks off. Figured there were better places to be doing cleaning.
