We told our BC somewhere around our tender or contract appointments. I guess you could tell them at any stage but I figured we might as well do it…

We are building VANCOUVER 33 with PORTER DAVIS

We have an issue where the developer doesn't like our facade so we have had to change it, PD are redoing the plans/engineering/energy etc at the moment. It was…

I was pretty sure you weren't anywhere near having a finished house so the photo threw me a bit! Did you end up having a look at the new…

Just double checking that picture isn't actually of your home right, pretty sure you're at about the same stage as us ie construction hasn't started? I don't know if it's…

Kew 29 with Eden Brae in Oran Park

We're building the Kew 28 by Porter Davis which I believe is essentially the same design. Our design is almost exactly the same as the one on the Eden Brae…

So we're now almost two weeks on from having to change our facade, we were told the new plans should be ready late this week but have no word from…

Good to see progress is being made Naama, I take it the asbestos has all been removed? Did you have any joy with chasing up whoever sold you the…

Ann: We've managed to resign ourselves to it now and as you say hopefully it's the only hassle we have to deal with.
It's great that you've got your keys…

Hi Doc,
I don't actually care that much what the front of the house looks like, for me it's just about not having to pay more money to change things and…

We're building in the Armstrong estate at Mt Duneed just outside Geelong, the developer is Villawood.

Exactly, if you're not going to approve what you are suggesting then just don't suggest it! We talked about whether or not they would approve other stuff and he…

It's not that the developer has changed their mind about things, the estate guidelines are basically written so broadly that it essentially can be used to approve or deny whatever…

So we spoke to the developer this morning, mixed news. The good news is that although PD have been a bit slack/selective in relaying information to us and their…

Sounds like they came to the party at least part of the way then, frustrating that the site supervisor is sabotaging it by not coming along to the meeting though.

I think we'll try and have a chat to the developer directly next week. So far everything is third hand information from the BC version of what the permits dept…

I remember reading about your issues with the developer and thinking that seems stupid, but at least with our house design we shouldn't have any issues. How wrong I was.…

Apparently the developer now wishes they hadn't approved the original facade/roof and won't be doing it again. No idea why or how it makes any difference to anyone whatsoever.…

Ok rant time.
After lots of back and forth between PD and the developer, we've been told we can't have the facade in our plans. I'm not particularly attached to…

It's Amsterdam style, we didn't take any photos sorry but I thought it looked nice. And nope, no instragram either unfortunately!

Yep all three of the new display homes at Armstrong are open, they only opened this weekend just gone. You have to go to the ones in the Villawood…

Great news on moving forward Sgene! Sadly we are still waiting on developer approval, and I'm still waiting for the BC to get back to me from a call…

You pay the bills, you call the shots. Assuming Darbecca are inspecting everything to check if it meets Australian standards, there shouldn't be too much room for the site supervisor…

As a generalisation pretty much anything in display kitchens has been upgraded, so thicker and deeper benchtops, extra lightings, fancier tiling etc are all extras you would need to add…

Presumably the tradies know that there is an independent inspector coming and yet they still don't do their jobs right? Or have enough pride in their work to do it…

I'd say you need to go back and do a proper quote with them as well. They should be able to walk you through the display home and what…

On a lot of the facade pictures on our website there are trees in front of half the house so you're not sure what the actual facade would look like!

With the fixed site costs I guess you are just making a bet whether you are on more expensive land than usual to build on or not. If you…
