that quote is totally wrong, our cost of waterproofing 4 ensuites and a powder room (added shower), was around $2000, this was for the floors and tile skirting, I don't…

How are you guys getting in after lockup?

Just got to lockup, however there were some issue found in Pre-Plaster inspection that they need to address, so will probably be slow going over the next couple weeks and…

Thanks for the information regarding waterproofing, I have let my BC know that this is absolutely necessary and asked for a variation to be raised. Sounds like way too much…

TBL, seems to me that since PD has not built in Bendigo before that they have some inexperienced tradies out there, hope it improves.

Our SS has advised lockup will be completed late next week, bricking is almost done. We've booked in our Pre-Plaster stage inspection for next Friday, hopefully not too many issues!

There is a display home for Porter Davis which has the 2340mm height doors upstairs in a 2590mm high ceiling. Unfortunately, I can't remember where it was, might have been…

The flooring pack is only really good value if you stick with the basics they give you (Cat 1 tiles, Bolero laminate, Cat 2 carpets), if you're looking at upgrades…

PD have got a new design out, the Plaza. I gotta say, it doesn't look anywhere near as functional as the Waldorf and Marriott designs, seems to me there are…

Bricks have started going up on my build. Seems to be flying along hope everything is being done to a high standard.

Silk finish is still a Laminex laminate product, it has a smooth finish, but still has visible seams where is it stuck to the front of the cabinet. Vinyl wrap…

Filthy, what bricks did you choose? Looks like a Melbourne series, but a lighter one than one we're getting, Hawthorn.
Bricks were delivered end of last week to our site and…

from what i've read there are hydraulics involved and the pool floor can rise and sink to different depths.
Here's a video.

Just watched a video on hidden water pools, those things look amazing! I can only imagine how hideously expensive they'd be to install and maintain though!

Just got the invoice for frame stage completion, going to have NHI inspect on Friday. Hopefully no issues, sure is moving quick.
Will be interesting to see how quickly the bricking…

I'm jumping ahead, but...filthyfil, I remember you talking about liquid limestone for your driveway, did you end up getting any quotes?
I've been reading up a bit on it and it…

Yeah, doing the flooring with PD is not worth it, nowadays, Carlisle, Henley, Metricon are throwing in flooring (Cat1 for Carlisle and Henley, Metricon Signature gets Cat3!) for free, whereas…

For cement grouts, you may also want to consider sealing it every year or so, I am currently considering whether or not to get epoxy grout which is more expensive,…

TomCat, we have polished porcelain currently and will also be getting them in the new house now.
They're very much easy to sweep and mop, can also vacuum them if…

For the two holes, have been told those are for the Powder room toilet and shower (added shower in our build), and that what I thought was styrofoam is actually…

Slab is done, frame starting early next week.
I noticed some edges and corners had crumbled a little, anyone else get this issue? Did PD fix it up for you?
Also noticed…
