Who's building with Clarendon??

Just a heads up, there is no hurry to get your final occupancy certificate. You only really need it if you are planning to sell. We still don’t have ours…

No problems with our microwave or dishwasher. We've been in for a year now.

We have the SMEG appliances and have had no issues at all. We have a freestanding 900mm oven with gas cooktop.

Clarendon don't give a crap about quality, they try and get away with the bare minimum.

The house length from front to back (the direction the laminate was laid) was just on the maximum length you can go before needing expansion joints.

We just avoided having one. I've seen them in a few of the display homes. If you can get the plastic strip to match the laminate it's not too bad.

MrsJM nothing happens if you don't have it! As long as it's done if you ever want to sell.

Yeah interim was fine, we just can't get the full one until we get clearance from council.

Our plans were rejected and the house had to be moved across to allow the 1m for the retaining wall. As it turned out the way the site was cut…

Get some gypsum on the soil before you plant anything else. The clay here is a killer for plants with delicate root systems. Your dad was out watering them when…

I just checked and ours is the PUM90X which is 900mm. It ended up being $403 extra, the one they originally quoted was $1233 extra!
