It just happened. TBH I didn't know what standard procedure was, and my ss prefers we meet with tiller to confirm tiling directions etc, so I asked him what he…

You will note my tiler did the window frame. He did tell me he's the only tiler Arden engages that does the window frame tiling in our area, I guess…

Great idea - although I think I will have house envy after seeing all the different houses.

Congrats!
How did it all go?

I reckon if you like it so much, get it. The kitchen bench is the centerpiecece of a home, so it is worth prioritising.

I believe that was Gemini.
I agree that you should have something that goes the full length. Maybe consider adding back the servery? Don't forget that it can always be removed…

It is still allot cheaper than cat 5, i think we were $1300 better off going with cat 4 vs cat 5.

Oh I see. I guess then, centering it would be the best position.

The stone was put in a few weeks a go.

So do you want to keep it at 3m, and just have it in the middle, or do you want it to be the length of the cabinets and fridge…

PCI is scheduled for the 31st. SS is confident that will happen, despite bad weather and a carpenter not showing up to complete the balcony and facade.
Flooring went in Monday…

Looks great - I love the mosaic feature too!

That's interesting, we got all our taps recently (in completion stage).

I had a fall of 600mm so a fair bit of fill was cut out.
They cut the site for the slab and seem to only do a minimal amount…

Further to that, the tiler Arden used for our house, told me that sealing your grout can cause it to discolour and look horrible. As a result they don't seal…

My experience was better- we had updated drawings at tender although there were further changes required.
Don't forget, that you can delete\change your tender selections prior to contract, if you contact…

Dropping them off.

That's my biggest fear. We have a friend who built with C, and their appliances got stolen twice! Lucky for them, they were appliances provided by the builder.

I would say 40% cheaper. Pays to look around and negotiate. Happens that I bought from HN after getting them to match the price of a online competitor.

Yes they are required to.
The operative word is 'independent'. I would argue someone engaged, and paid, by the builder to look at 100s of homes around Melbourne is not…

Bit of both. Arden is charging a builders margin - no doubt and my bro-in law is a sparky so he gets wholesale prices.
I'm even considering paying for him…
