They will not be moving in, it is just an investment property for them. I will mention this "storage condition" to the site supervisor though as they are still…

Since handover hasn't happened, Arden will still need to replace the missing items. It's not my responsibility to ensure the house is adequately locked-up and that their trades are…

Met with the site supervisor today with regards to the shower screen. From what he showed me they have made the shower screen too big. To be honest,…

I agree that the cost is quite ridiculous but we still believe it was worth paying to have the nicer finish we desired.

If you get the framers in next week, I'd expect the frame to be up in as little as 2x days, it is amazing how fast those pre-fab frames go…
