Hi Bronte19,
We're currently at week 14 and still in frame stage. After having just a slab for 12 weeks we are so happy to finally have some progress!
I'm…

Tell me about it! Not sure what the hold up is yet as we've been away but hope to find out tmrw.
It'll all be jargon to me too. Fingers crossed…

CalicoCat - That's concerning that the defects aren't going to be rectified. Do Darbecca mention on the report how significant each defect is?
Poniri- did you have any major…

Change in ss and then unexpected leave with the new ss. The two other builds on my street have progressed so quickly and I was getting so frustrated going past…

Wow so exciting! I'm a little bit jealous 😜
Our frame should start next week (4th time lucky) and it's been 2 months since our slab was poured.
Hopefully…

Thanks for your detailed response Bergman58. I hope your daughter has fully recovered.
Our contracted build time is around 10 months plus we're doing 4 private inspections so I expect it'll…

Bergman58 - How did you find your build? How long did out take to handover? We were looking to build Queenscliffe but went with glenaire instead
Bronte19 - was George…

Hi CalicoCat
I hope your slab was poured today. Still no frame for us but apparently someone will come Friday to set it out etc. Like you, I'll believe…

Definitely call your admin person. Our frame was supposed to start last Tuesday and it came and went with no sign of any timber. My SS wasn't answering or returning…

Hi all,
Great to see all the progress! Ours has stalled slightly as found out today our ss left Fairhaven. The new ss is organising our framers now so hopefully…

Definitely! I spent my time picturing where all the rooms were going to be. I think once the frame goes up that's when it'll really sink in!
Good luck…

Congrats Bronte19! It'll go so quickly.
We had our slab poured yesterday :)

We're building the Glenaire and we're in the North Western Suburbs.

We've just started the construction process. I've never been so excited to see a toilet on site before! All being well, the slab will be poured on Thursday. Our inspector…

That's great that Fairhaven were so accommodating. I hope the slab pour went ahead with no issues.
Our soil contains highly reactive clay so want to make sure the slab…

Hi Poniri,
How exciting! Were they minor issues? We're hoping that our start date is within the next month or so but haven't been given a date as yet.

Yes I was furious when I realised! Fairhaven worked with us to get it sorted and by changing the balcony to a porch we managed to bring the house forward…

We hadn't engaged Darbecca at that time so it was something we worked out.
We picked it up when we were sent a post contract variation with reference to a…

I know what you mean. Honestly, we were not going to use an inspector for the same reason.
We had an issue though where our setback was incorrect…

We also had a quote from Darbecca and we asked the same question! Whilst they said they were all important, they told us the most common inspections were:

We had the tender appointment and went through all the costs etc then. We weren't able to get any documents before the appointment.

Hi GEOnTREY,
We're almost ready to start building our KDR project with Fairhaven. We're building the Glenaire and found the contract to be fairly standard.
