So today I was told that the Service Supervisor is not available to come and inspect our tiling issue until 7 January 2015. Well Merry Christmas to us.
Let me put…

Building in Baldivis- Key Handover booked!

You don't get keys without the final payment so it depends on how long you can hold out for keys. We had three PCIs and in the end had to…

Congrats on lock-up. Hope you enjoy the 'face constantly pressed against the glass' phase of building! :D

Would you be happy with this? It's where they've had to chip out the really hard grout in the shower recess. Looks like the chiselling has damaged the tile edging.…

Or if you do, how difficult is it to clean up after yourself? I can understand not seeing silicone on white surfaces (we didn't see it at first on most…

We knew it would take about two weeks so it's pretty much on schedule. The last tradie has been scheduled for 8am Monday to finish the painting and the tile…

Ben Trager - Secret Harbour - Could it get any worse?

I've just caught up on your build. WHAT. THE. F*#K.
Have you sought legal advice? At the very least I'd be getting a report from a qualified independent building inspector so…

Is there room to do this, Kelsey? It's a great idea. You could have a hidden rangehood in the overhead cupboards above the splash back window. Although I'm not sure…

I also agree 100% with BuildWest about going to management as soon as possible if things start heading south. We were told by our Site Supervisor that he wouldn't have…

Moving the wall would be my preference too Kelsey, provided you can still easily open the refrigerator door. If it encroaches on the fridge space, I hate to say it,…

Great to see the progress coming along. I'm sure you'll be at lock-up in time for the Christmas break.
