Looks amazing! Our house is getting painted first then tiles, I wonder if there's a reason for doing tiles first?

They reject it because they're lazy, it takes rework with the drafting and estimates team which they'd prefer not to do.
If you insist that's what you want they'll get…

We felt the same way about our backyard when our site cut was done, but it turned out they had cut extra at the back :)

That's funny, we paid to go from Hebel to Weatherboard in the top corner 😒 just goes to show how much these guys make in extra charges.

Our whole house started as all Hebel and we asked for the top right to be weatherboard to break it up.
They said no, then it went to developer for approval…

How exciting Emma! It's amazing how quick the frames pop up. Hopefully they fly through to lock-up stage so there aren't too many rain delays :)
