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

As far as I know the tiles need at least a day or two after going down and then probably another day minimum after they’ve…

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…

I had the same thing. It basically gets filled with cement. If floor tiles are going in there make sure they use a flexible adhesive. If you have skirting boards…

I've been house sitting for much of the last 18 months so most of my things have been in storage anyway! Probably only a couple of boxes to fill and…

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

Hi team,
Can I get some thoughts on:
- Theatre entry
- Ensuite entry
The theatre gap was meant to be 1690mm but I've found out the hard way that doesn't allow for plaster.…
