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…

gap from slab of internal hallway wall

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.

Had to sneak down on the weekend and look through windows. Most of the tiling has been done, looks good!

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…

Yeah I'm sure it will be fine. Though it has made me think (along with the worst spots for vanadium stains) that I'll need to keep an eye on moisture…

Bloody hell, that's no good Bob Little ****. Definitely a silver lining that nothing inside has been damaged - hopefully the glazing is a quick fix and doesn't delay you…

Sounds/looks really good! The magnolias will be a nice feature. The only thing I'll say is make sure your letterbox is a) not in the way of your entry (will…
