The timber strips are mostly decorative, to hide the cut edges. They may also help stop some warping, but the weight of the fridge will fix that. Our rental place has the skirting boards removed from the previous tenant so that they could get their fridge in. Causes no issue, just looks a bit ugly.

Wow fademan, that is incredibly quick. You can see our timeline on my blog. Great to see you are making quick progress.

I guess it all depends on the Site Supervisor, we haven't had too many of those kinds of issues (thankfully). We only live just over 1km from our build…

Hi there, the boutique stacker lock is keyed on the outside but not on the inside, it is a knob that you turn to lock/unlock

We paid for a hard wire doorbell in our electrical at a cost of $259. Couldn’t be bothered messing around afterwards and have disappointing experiences with wireless ones.
