Yeh we are, Arden have been quite good to us. Our supervisor has been great too which has made the process much better than it could have been. …

Thank you!
The flooring is vinyl planks from Perfect Timber Floors in the colour Nevis. We also upgraded to "no quad".

Week 24
This will be the last "weekly" update as the house is now completed (except for minor maintenance and repairs).
This week has seen a number of "teething" issues crop up…

Week 23
This update is LONG overdue, mainly for the fact that we were handed the keys to the house on Friday (26/10/2018.) and we were frantically moving everything in and…

I am building with Arden and have a colourbond roof. My cousin who is a carpenter mentioned that my roof does not have sarking. When he brought it…

Week 22
As I had expected, we were again delayed for handover. On Wednesday (17/10/2018.) afternoon my site supervisor gave me a call and advised me that the ensuite showerhead…

Typically Arden tries to have QA, then PCI a week later, and handover the week following. In theory this gives Arden enough time to fix up most issues raised…

Week 21
Given the lead up to handover, one would have thought that there would be a lot of action in getting this finished up. However this week saw little…

Not to worry kathysangel, the pictures of our flooring were taken before the skirting boards were installed, it looks a lot more finished…

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…

Week 19
So as I mentioned above, I caught up with our site supervisor this week. I won't repeat myself, so what happened is outlined in post 73. My…

I double checked but yes it seems so. A final inspection of the property will be required by our bank prior to payment of the final invoice. Our…

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,…

Speaking of flooring, we should be getting our flooring installed today. I won't be able to go down and check tonight, but I will be for sure tomorrow. …

I agree that the cost is quite ridiculous but we still believe it was worth paying to have the nicer finish we desired.
To be honest we did not think to…

It really is a great house design imo. We have been very happy with everything for the most part, which is about as much as you can ask! …

Yeah I did think of this too! Maybe down the track it is an option, but we don't really have the money at the moment to invest in that.
