There you go then, I assumed it was always done in the same order but I guess not! Great news on getting a lot of work done on the…

I don't think they normally do any of the wiring, plumbing etc before they have the Hebel/bricks on and the place can be locked up, otherwise it's all exposed to…

It's scheduled to be about a three week period from our lockup stage to having our plaster installed, no idea if that is standard though.

Building the Waldorf Grange by Porter Davis

We got told by our SC that we could have PD do the driveway but that they were much more expensive than getting it done yourself.

Your contract to buy the land probably covers what happens with the vacant land at the back of your block. I'm in the same situation except that the land…

Are they definitely still working there? We've had three BC's of which one left but the handovers have all been pretty smooth, I would guess that it doesn't always go…

We had WoS before tender so everything had already been incorporated into the price at tender. I think our site costs had come down slightly at contract because they'd been…

Thanks Naama! We know it's still a long way to go but we're very happy to be making progress!

We have Hebel up now, it wasn't there thursday lunchtime so I'm assuming they must have got the delivery and had it all installed on friday. Nice and quick!

I saw on your blog that you'd had some of your windows broken Phoenix, sorry to hear and even more annoying with all the cables being stolen. Hopefully it…

I'd suggest getting everything in writing with your neighbor goldencrumble. Otherwise if things go pear shaped it's your word against his and is likely to get messy, also then…

If you haven't signed a contract then you can't really expect them to be starting work?

I do wonder who is doing all the thieving though. Presumably most of it is just building material like wood, plasterboard and the like which whilst being worth something…

I think you can use both. Stick if they're stuffing you around, carrot if they're treating you right. If they're doing a good job thank them for it…

Wow that seems really extreme, even with the inflated prices there! What were you looking at?

The house is looking good nikil, hopefully it comes along pretty quickly for you! That's a massive backyard, I wish ours was even half of that!
