Hi,
I desperately need some advice from people who already had handover about the state the house is in at handover. I was told by my SS at PCI that PD…

Hi Mel,
Quick question, was the painting on your architraves, skirting board etc rough?
It seems that my decorative columns are really rough (one of them is really smooth which is…

Thats wonderful news Tsltra. Your build has been perfect and hassle free.
Our PCI has been moved back a few times, now on 30/11 with handover still scheduled for 6th…

Congrats Mel&Rob, hope you are enjoying your new home.
We're having PCI next week. Any tips anyone? Does anyone have a checklist I can go through?
So many things still need…

That's a pretty good price. What's their website/contact details?
Its not in my PD rewards booklet. I suspect mine could be outdated. Anyone has the latest one?

Wow... Its looking awesome!!! So envious!!! It should get really exciting from hereon...
I am dreading the packing and moving though... =)

Hey Mel&Rob,
I thought our block was rather flat too. But they sort of cut into the back and (over) filled the front and now the front look really high compared…

Hey Mel,
What do you mean by clean up the site? Did they do anything with the levels? My block slopes down towards the back and PD has 'overfilled' the front,…

Wow, 4th Oct. That's quick...
Have you thought about furnishings?
Window coverings, WIR fitouts, landscaping (driveway etc)... Did I miss anything?
Those are the few I've started researching. Happy to compare notes. =)

Hi W,
Honest opinion. Ask for a change in BC now. Don't wait.
We had the same problems and worse. Stuck it out thinking admin would be over soon enough. It…

On a positive note, fixing is now complete. Got the fixing invoice today.
They have rendered the front and will start on the garage trusses and painting next week!
We may…

Hi Cmac,
We had the same problem too.
You will just need to push. Get your inspector to speak directly to your SS and liaise and get things fixed. It might…

Hi Eli-Kay,
From memory, the columns were $101 each.
Wow, your hallway tiling sounds nice. Great that your consultant recommended you the cheaper alternative. Do post a pic once its all…

I'm still waiting for the building variation for reverting to the original fridge space...
I think they expect me to be rapt that it is now getting fixed, despite the cost.…

This is what the plans show.
I couldn't tell that it would stick out at ground level. I was not given any elevations of the stairs. Bearing in mind that…

Can’t believe they charged you to change it back to the original dimensions. That’s crap, they are already making a huge profit from your build and little amendments like this…

Pups,
Love your chandelier. Its great that PD decided to honour their contract and strengthen the roof trusses.

Just an update regarding my fridge space jutting out from under the stairs.
PD initially came back and said they will not fix it as they built it as per…

Ours was over the stairs because the consultant at electricals was unable to drag the icon into the middle of the void. She told us not to worry and said…

Oh dear... Sorry about your never ceasing troubles... I still remember meeting you and your wife at colours/electricals and sharing our choices... Well, we aren't that far ahead of you.…

Pup,
SS did not really give us an answer with regards to the chandelier on the staircase void... He just said that each individual truss is manufactured to withstand a 80kg…

Hey Pup & T,
Here's a snapshot of my plans.
SS reckons they can re-frame the fridge (take it back to 950) and centre the framing on the double 10-lite doors but…

It is in the plans. But we didn't know to look out for them. I know it sounds lame, but its the first time we are building. It would have…

It looks hideous!!! Any suggestions? What is the standard width for the fridge space? Maybe I'll just ask them to revert to the original. Or try capping it on top…

Hi,
Snuck in yesterday to take these pics. Really not happy. It was the sales consultant who suggested we extend the fridge space. At no point was it made known to…
