Thanks, but it would be at our own expense 😔 If the builder next door did it right in the first place, we should not have trouble like this.

Thanks for the information. This is really helpful.
My worry is that who should we contact if their builder is not responding to us?
Since they're on a zero boundary and if…

Thanks all. If we don't proceed to knocking down their wall, will that cause an issue on our build later on?

Their slab was built 50mm over the boundary 😪
Will this cause us any issues especially when there's movement? I don't think we can request them to knockdown the bricks as…

Yes it is. Is your house double storey or single? I enquired with them and was told that you can do up to 10 zones and should not be an…

Budgeting for a pool

Do you think exposed aggregate around the pool looks good too instead of paver/tile? Exposed aggregate is not as slippery as paver/tile but not sure if this will make the…

Agree. It would be good if builders inform or get a consent from their clients before bringing in someone to go through your build.
