Because they watered down the paint, some areas of walls and ceilings were quite thin.
Our paint colour was a warm white and in some areas we could see the…

Thanks for that speedy response, Steve.
Does that mean I need to connect the Getaway modem inside the home hub? Do you mind posting some pictures of your nbn/modem set up?…

Does anybody know what the Hills Home Hub actually do?
We have FTTP in our house and I have a Telstra Getaway modem to set up the nbn/internet connection with.…

Where are you building, beknjohn? Are you in Sydney? You have Haywards Bay listed under your username.

Hi Katran,
It went better than we expected. Knowing how defensive/dismissive Rawson can be, we somehow managed to come to an agreement/understanding with our SS in regards to getting the…

Your site supervisor would be your first port of call. Talk to him and get him to come up with a solution.
I struggle with their lack of care and…

Hi Kate,
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) states that "exterior masonry must not overhang more than 15mm past the edge of the slab."
Where are you building? In NSW, there…

Ask your colour consultant to provide you with the current figure.
2 years ago it was between $60-$75 per m2.
Rawson will still do the skirting but not fixing it…

We use a microfibre mop from Enjo for our floorboards and tiles.
Just add a little warm water to the mop (slightly damp) and it cleans beautifully after you vacuum…

I'm sure the drop down ceiling over the whole kitchen area will look really good too!

Loving the front facade, Katran. It looks great. What colour is your garage door? Is it Merbau?

That sounds a bit sus, doesn't it? You live in a quiet street, so what's the traffic control for?

Yep. We've got bulkheads & feature wall missing from the house, incorrect sink mixer installed... and they're all in the plans ::wornout::

Rawson will not provide you with a receipt.
However, you can ask for a breakdown. Site cost requirements normally consist of piering allowance, H2 slab, sewer pegout, driveway layback, stepdown/drop…

They have since installed the bulkhead in the pantry.

With hundreds of projects going on at the same time, things are bound to be forgotten/overlooked/misplaced/whatever ... and there's not much…

Oh yes, they're all in the contract. The bulkheads in the master bedroom are drawn on Elba's plans and they still missed it.

They've also forgotten the bulkhead in the…

I don't think luck has anything to do with it. There are other things that have been forgotten due to lack of attention. Not surprising if you consider most Rawson's…

It's been awhile since I posted the last update. This is where we are right now:
Bulkheads over the built-in robes and dressing table are missing (i.e. forgotten)
