Mckz your driveway appears very similar to mine and they only used 1 load and credited me 2 loads.

Yes Upsize. Its a good test during the maintenance period. Ours passed fine and I'm pretty impressed with the drainage as there was no water logging anywhere. Still not impressed…

Loop,
It depends where you are in the estate. If you are on Wilandra I would expect 12.5 since you are within 100 metres of the bush and it is on…

I recall for stage 1 Ross kept the fences up for as long as possible to prevent issues such as illegal soil dumping which has happened in other estates.

Anyone else building in North Kellyville?

I got connected to NBN 2 weeks ago and the service has been very good. At Gardeners Ridge we are on the Stringer Rd FDH cabinet.
HeathWild, is your neighbours…

Scott, our site was classified as M, however with higher than normal salinity, we needed a reinforced M slab.

My sentiments the same Upsize! Relaxing by the pool...we'll be a few weeks away from that. I'm concerned we may have less than 50% of the required soft landscaping, but…

Thanks for the locksmith details Upsize. I actually checked all my locks today and the laundry and external garage deadlocks didn't work! Another issue which needs to be fixed.
One thing…

Congrats Upsize!
With the garage door, I think we can get a locksmith to install a deadlock with the same key. I really think Kurmond should've given us the option to…

Thanks for clarifying Big Mama. I hope we can get a deadlock keyed alike.
Crazy that your plans took ages to get approved but at least you'll start shortly.

I think you're expected to finalise within 2 days of the walk through.
The packing is much harder with 3 little ones. But since most our stuff is in boxes…

Hey Upsize,
Exciting that you're getting so close!!
We are moving in next Wednesday. It's all too hectic to really celebrate :)
Maybe after we are in. We delayed…

Upsize,
Yes we finally got our keys on Wednesday. A bit of an anti climax because of a number of outstanding paint issues still. But we just cannot afford to delay…

Hey Upsize. Your driveway is looking great! I assume Reece did yours also. He does a very good job. He'll come back in a week or so to seal it…

Ses, the bench top is polar white. We could've gone with some darker speckles but we're happy with it.
Yes frustrations are a normal part of building. As long as…

Thanks for reminding me Upsize, I think I have an electric bill from memory to pay. We have to foot the bill. It's also common in new estates for neighbouring…

Good progress guys. It seems we are still about 3 weeks away. We completed our PC walk through and picked up a number of things which are being fixed already.

Our soil test was also not required as my developer provided the soil classification. Only the bore holes were required. Otherwise, as soon as Kurmond have access to the land…

Hills Build, we also got our external laundry door upgraded with a window and built in venetian blinds. This was very expensive, but a very neat option.
I've spoken to Caroma…

Hi Upsize,
Fortunately for us, the Developer already installed the crossover and layback (as we don't have the rolled kerb either). Unfortunately this location was not ideal so I need to…

Manago Tiles offer a couple of different ranges of bamboo flooring now. There are 2 colours (natural and coffee) in the standard range which are not an upgrade. The Verdura…

Not sure. Hadn't really noticed, but now that you mention it, the other Elderton on the corner has progressed much faster. I met the people building that house. They're moving…

Joandandy I don't see how that Sierra is 31sq. Especially since the corridors are so narrow. They have flipped the rear of the house though.

Upsize. Definitely the doubles take longer to do the internals. But your progress is still very good.

Our upgrade was $1260 for all areas except bedrooms and theatre on the Sierra 34.

Upsize, your progress pics look good. I'll join you with some of mine.

Same here. Bamboo flooring in the living areas and carpet in the bedrooms and home theatre. I'm a little nervous about kids and bamboo but I'll take the risk!!
