Thanks mate. Yeah I know the feeling - I’ve actually decided to take time off to finish skirtings etc so it’s not hanging over my head forever. You’ll get there!…

It’s been a while, so thought I’d throw up some pics. I think my last backyard photos were of stormwater going in, so with retic, lawn, shed and water tank…

Stormwater not deep enough - protect/replace?

Hi all,
Wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction.
I installed my own soakwells a few months back. Pit in the back, pit in the front, with 90mm…

Yeah, the front is palmetto and was included as standard in the end so I didn’t have to pay anything. The back is Sir Walter as of yesterday - will…

Looks great Bob! Amazing how much of a difference it makes.
For anyone SOR contact AG Buffalo if you’re after Sir Walter. Was a good price compared to others, and he…

Thanks! It was $550 but that’s for 1.5m wide. I did get one cheaper quote but the guy had no website or reviews so I steered clear.

It’s enjoyable looking back at photos to see dirt become a house.
It’s been a hectic month, with stormwater, paving, crossover, side gate, antenna, alarm, clothesline, front lights all…

So Bob, how’s the new pad going? If you’re like me you haven’t had time to think about Homeone for weeks

Had the final inspection this morning. Took about 1 hour 45 which was a bit longer than anticipated!
There were plenty of red stickers for wall/paint touch ups but nothing significant.…

Final inspection was put off, probably by about a week. The internal walls have remained too wet to paint. I'm glad they're not rushing that though. They need three days…

Yep, 11th September! Then keys 10 working days later, so about the 25th. Not long now at all.
