Thanks for those costings Brent. The good news for me is that yes, thankfully my budget covers it despite those prices being (sorry to have to say it) exorbitant.…

Brent, what was the configuration of the $16K order if you don't mind me asking. I am looking to get Crimsafe for my new home however the company aren't even…

Building a home with Langdon Builders Ballarat (Horsham)

It isn't something stupidly simple like the tap servicing the plumbing to the washer not being turned on sufficiently? Sorry, I know it is obvious but I remember my previous…

Sorry for your woes (especially with your medical considerations) though to be honest I think you would always have been pushing it to have it all done this year. It…

Did you specifically ask the original inspector to do both a structural and pest inspection? Alot of them will add a waiver that they do not do specific pest inspections…

Thanks. I just find it incredibly disappointing in general that damage such as this occurs so frequently. In a slightly less imperfect world than the present one, I would like…

Hi blackcat20,
