Building an EB Memphis 31 - Finally In

I'm still waiting on Internet, so will post some soon. I'm a bit limited with just an iPhone!

Hey Mark,
We will be there. Look forward to catching up.

Which brand of laminate timber flooring???

I'm very happy with the floor. Yes the bevelled edges are there, but you can't notice them. Armstrong tout it as a design feature anyway.
If you don't like the bevelled…

That is the one. They seem to have longer boards available now too. Best of luck.

Other ISPs do have plans you can subscribe to also, but they are via the Telstra infrastructure so are more expensive than their usual plans. An example would be iiNet's…

A few people have been wondering about internet in Kellyville Ridge and The Ponds. There is both good and bad news for most of us.
The good news is that instead…

Lol well I was happy to skip Twilight to get the keys!

Lol I think it's best to wait for the key!
It is just me attending the handover too. My wife has deemed Twilight more important!

It looks likely today. Everything is done besides the bathroom accesories. I asked for a refund, but they will deliver them next week for us to install.
I've left work,…

Haha I think the key is having zero responsibilities! NZ looks awesome right now though, even for a bad skier like me.
Well we might have the keys tomorrow, so…

Hey Mark. Aren't you skiing?
Some flyscreens would be good. The only thing I've organised so far is the flooring (they are also wondering how many more delays there could be).
Lol…

On the rain days, EB haven't claimed any delays from me. Prior to lock up, I believe it only rained just after the slab was poured, so I don't think…

They are allowed 5 weeks off because off Christmas, despite this they had just 1 week off. Considering all this, they are 14 days over due, so with rain delays…

I don't think they would, but I have no doubt in my ability to have it done faster :)

Door bell for us at this stage. The one EB put in looks pretty average, so will find a fancy one to replace it with.

My stuff is at Kennards too, at the Castle Hill location. Very easy to deal with them, so recommend them if you need storage.

They can do that, however we don't really believe their time frames of doing it a day or two after handover given their track record.
I really don't know what is…

Well my handover has been delayed again for I think the 5th time. I've lost count now!
Anyway, the problem this time appears to be the Rear Gutter near my Rumpus…

Yeah it is very frustrating for me now.
We still aren't fully packed, cause we know how unreliable EB can be! We don't have too many boxes left, so will probably…

Well, typical of EB they cant deliver on the time frames they commit. They now say Tuesday, but most likely Friday (or next Friday).
What is still remaining:
Fixing Carpet
Correctly locating bathroom…

Interesting comments on property values. I neither agree or disagree on future values for SCR, but think they will continue moving more or less in line with values of the…

Well, they are apparently aiming for next Friday now. Hopefully they can deliver this time around.

Actually it isn't bad news, although nothing fully confirmed at this stage.

I hope it does happen too. I'll probably check out the progress late tomorrow night or Wednesday.
