Building Lexington 240

Omg. I've never seen anything like that. I still don't know which toilets are being installed :/
Kings weren't interested in upgrading with us either. It actually annoys me now because…

I'm glad to hear that the mortar is gone. Here's hoping for hole-less mortar!

Subscribed.
We are building the Hartwell with the Allora facade.
Here's hoping that your build is a smooth one :)

I'm pleased to hear that they will redo the bricks - hopefully a better solution than band-aiding the mortar. It's a shame that it won't be handed over until next…

The worst thing for us is that we nearly walked away from JG King after the contract debacle (it took them 5 months to start preparing our contract, and then…

Apparently our supervisor and electrician had different sets of plans, both of which were wrong.

It'll be right - but admittedly I find the incompetence mind blowing

So many things - mainly due to the fact that the admin department are useless. They have no ******* idea how to do their jobs :/

They aren't conceding that they are liable for liquidated damages but they have definitely quickened their pace haha!

We are three weeks past contract date. Any liquidated damages owing to us will be paid by cheque after the final payment.

I am so disappointed for you both. It's a pity that the repointing can't be done until the new year, but I'm glad that Kings are taking it seriously.

Horrible news for both of you.

No eaves or render yet but I'm hoping soon. Some work inside though :)
We also mowed the lawn (which was…

I have a 4m+ back bench in my kitchen. The join has been placed in line with our gas cooktop. It's hardly visible!

The bricks are done (except for two brick window reveals).

JG King are really pushing to handover in early December (with practical completion in late November). Unfortunately if we miss early December, handover won't happen until late January

I suspect we only have one guy working on ours. Some of the builds here have 3-4 guys and they are finished in about a week.
