Yep we’re very happy at the moment. We see progress every week and our SS seems to be on top of everything.
It’s such a contrast to admin. Hopefully it…

We’re up to week 15 now (or week 18 if we count from site scrape rather than construction start date). Our scaffolding has come down, bricks are all cleaned and…

You lose a lot of usable wall/counter space in the laundry with all the doors. Do you plan to fit it out? I would shuffle it around like this if…

Looks fantastic Jordann. I wish Wisdom offered aggregate driveways, I really love the look of them but the convenience of being done before handover won out.
How long do you…

Not yet. If we meet our 30 week build timeline then it will be late September. I don’t see the point in hassling our SS for an estimated date yet…
