Who else is building with Eden Brae?

Most of ours were paint and plaster touchups. All over our walls, skirting, cornices etc. They were all picked up at PCI and yes, most were repaired for us…

Yup ours was terrible as well :n:
Hi Baulkham - did EB repair the painting in your house?

Kerith I've got similar mixer taps - how do you tell if they're incorrect or not?

It was super-stressful. Hubby and I are much greyer now :) We thought we had given it enough time with two weeks of buffer but they…

Yes - they do. But that all sounds great in theory but of course getting it organised and agreed to by EB is another thing.

yes - that is true. They don't allow you to move in without your house being finished. But we had to move in - we were getting kicked out of…

Has anyone else reached the end of their maintenance period? Our house was not fully finished when we moved in and I'm concerned about what can be done when we…

That sounds so absolutely frustrating!!
OUr carpet was an upgrade but not top of the range at all. It is really weird! We selected the carpet a year ago and apparently…

Yes! I know! I went very close to completely losing it when the alternative was offered but they didn't have an idea of what it was made of, a sample,…

Almost as annoying as having to reselect carpet type/colour because they 'couldn't make the carpet in time' for it to laid in the house... whaatt the!?

mmmm...I'm sure most people here keep an eye on their building sites and wouldn't be allowing anything like that to go on.

Make sure you go through each item in the tender.. it's tedious but we had a number of changes to our tender.

we managed to get a similar brick to Mild Steel in the standard range - phew! We passed Basix easily due to relocated windows onto North side and lighter coloured…

Hi,
We had a sewer pipe but managed to avoid extra site costs by shifting the house a little on the lot so that the pipe is not obscured. Might be…

Wow! nearing lock-up that's very exciting.
Yep - apparently the application was still in the councils records area... over a week just in the records area!! sigh...

Hi B&S,
We're also building in the general area.
My best advice would be to keep a file on all your conversations between you and Eden Brae. And also bear in mind…

I find that you definitely have to know your build inside and out. Things seem to slip in or out of the tender that if you're not vigilant can be…

How exciting! It does make a big difference :)

Hi Farhan,
We were offered Colorbond colours for the garage door and there are a few patterns that you can pick from. We picked a plain pattern...
Sorry - I can't help…

Thanks Jimnsal.
Yep - the cockroaches definitely like the food scraps.... :)

Is there anything we should be doing while building or on completion of the new house about pest control (mainly cockroaches)?
Or is that just something you do later down…

mmmm... I'll keep searching for the program but can't seem to find it.
You do have to be on the ball to make sure nothing crappy goes into your plans though

mmmm... wish I could find that one to watch. Was that ABC 7.30 Report?
Just fiddling around at the moment - perfecting plans.... sigh..

Woah! What story on the 7.30 Report was that?
So - you've only really had problems after council approval?

8 years8 yearsEntertainerStarEntertainerStar posted:

Oh really? That's bad - you're really not having a great time - having to fight them on everything.

What was the door story? Was this for your fire rating?

We've just been through tender and are on to colour choices and electrical.
