Hi everyone, long time since I've posted here. We've been in our place for a few months now. Still a few outstanding issues to resolve.
We had our 90 day maintenance…

These were things we noted mostly once we moved in. Independent inspector did also spot a lot of things not on the list above. We are adding the above to…

Our process from demolishing to keys was 22 months. Also we are finding heaps of quality issue.
All the windows, sliding doors and their frames have either significant glass scratches, acid…

That was from slab to keys. January 2017 to July 2018.

Yep. We lived with my parents for 22 months. Ridiculous. We've been through 6 site supervisors. And counting.

Our house took over 18 months to build in the parramatta area. Brace yourself.

So we've finally started the big move in. Only took 22 months since we moved out of our original house to knock it down..!

Now that we are in the…

Yep we just had another quote.. 9.5k. Both quotes include extending some steps and curving the driveway around to the front step.
The original guy ended up quoting 12.5k!!

Thanks! Just wondering what everyone paid for their driveway??? We received a quote which seems exorbitant..11 to 12k..! Here's the area

We finally got our keys...after 18 months of construction..!
Can anyone recommend a good driveway guy and landscaper?? We're in the parramatta region. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do you mind me asking what types of issues did you find? We're close to PCI so I'm keen to hear what the common issues are...

Just wondering generally how long should PCI be after gyprock, skirting and doors?

Another thing I noticed, do any of you with a double storey have a skirting board running through your stairwell between the gyprock of the first and second floor? I…

Ah bugger..So it was just dealt with by asking the installer to fix it. I bet if we ask the ss a few weeks down the track during an…

For those of you who got a horizontal ravine finish for your cupboards, did they install them so the grain follows the cupboards or did they just stick them randomly…

Hi all, if anyone here has gone to fair trading over delays with m can you please contact me privately on here. Thanks.

I've been fairly quiet on here reading some of the newbies posts but I feel compelled to warn you all. If you think pre construction is lengthy just digest this:…

Our newbie ss is the best one we've had. He's done more in 3 weeks than the last guy did in 4 months.

This is nothing. We're in our 11th month of our build and still don't have a lower roof.

That is some seriously ******* brickwork. The brick colour variation is completely unacceptable in my opinion. Wow. I can't believe they are fighting you on this.

What possible justification could there be for such a massive price change??

That's crazy! What's the reason the council has given for the changes?

This forum has been great. We knew going on there would probably be delays. Our biggest reason for sticking with them was the fact that we loved the design and…
