Got the keys today

That looks great Melos.
Congratulations!
The photos look like they could be in a product brochure. Very tidy.
I agree trees can really gum up the works when building.

Gotta say I've had it with their Admin team now.
I think their variation process need a revamp.

Exactly, its not a guaranteed discount (there are conditions) so you need to be capable of paying the full price.

Wrong render color?

Yeah looks darker.
Perhaps the display home is faded a bit or wasnt really painted Terrible Billy?
You can always check it with a colour swatch.

Hi,
I saw on your blog that the piering and formwork started.
The birds eye view from the drone are pretty handy.
