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!!

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...

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…

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.

You're allowing for the fact that there will probably be major, significant delays on your build as has been the case with most of us here. There appears to be…
