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.

From this:

To this!
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

Congrats Jenza, that floor looks awesome!
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…

And I’m in! Reception sucks so I will have to do a proper update when the nbn is connected.

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.

It'll be my main lounge area to start with and it will only be me and (sometimes) my other half there. No kids or housemates makes it easier but I…

Thanks guys. I think I will leave both for now. They're both post handover projects anyway, but neither are particularly urgent. More of a re-sale attractiveness thing probably, so I…

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.…

What a hassle! I think the best bet is to see if you can get it added into the finance, that way you don't have to try and find $600…
