Thanks for sharing.
We all know that it's hit or miss with site supervisors. I guess it's how it is in the industry.
Same thing with trades I guess. Some people generally…

Same here. I guess by nature people write reviews if they have complaints or bad experience. People (including me) need to start writing these positive reviews to give credit where…

I think somebody posted that here a few months back. You may want to try to backtrack a bit.
I can tell you what i remember but it's not exhaustive:

Interested to see how they put up hebel powerpanels and if it really is as fast to install as they claim it to be.

Hi Treedance,
I've got quotes from another builder H before, and they were more expensive if i remember.
I visited some homeshows this year as well and prices start at around 600…

The hold up, so I've been told, was a general shortage of pine used for frames, and framers at this time of year, across the industry. Apparently they're not the…

Probably the reason why they decided to split out work with Como. Come to think of it, they could have easily just absorbed all the work and grew organically.
I'm hoping…

Mates do we get solar hot water system, or water tanks with Arden? I spoke to someone who said that one of those might be required to meet the energy…

Try to use the mobile app called tapatalk - it makes replying so much easier.

Yeah bricks. Austral buckwheat originally, but was told after tender that it was end of sale so changed to the closest one which is chestnut.

I'm using off white on chestnut.
It really depends on your overall colour scheme. If you want the mortar to feature/pop-out, then off white. If you want it to blend in,…

No. Natural as standard. Off-white is an $1100ish upgrade for the votivo43.

Arden said you can appoint your own but I think there will be more hassles in doing that.

I doubt it as they use the standard HIA contract.

Whoa that is some serious fall on your block.

No not yet. That won't be until they are ready to go to site i think.

Contract signed today. Wheeew. Now let's pray that the construction goes smoothly.
It pays to go through everything line by line. We've found some mismatches between what was in the contract…

Not exactly, but something that will give us commercial flexibility in case it blows out of proportion.

Arden just gives the standard guarantee (10yrs on structure i think).
Is the henley guarantee worth the paper it's written on though? I bet you there would be a ton of…

Might have to do the same myself. My contract appointment is this Thursday. Might push it to jan.

Forgot to mention I'm building in Sunbury. My site isn't going to title until after new year.
Still, other builders do provide fixed site costs (or at least capped) even without…

Same here. Actually planning to use it as a bargaining chip to give me a "not to exceed" cost otherwise I'm not signing my contract. Too much risk exposure.

They said there's no void available.
Told them to make additional voids if they need to.
