I would be requesting and requiring that HBC replace your current SS immediately. The response from your current SS is reprehensible. He clearly has no interest in his job nor…

Hi, LittleGreenTareit,

Building the Waldorf Grange by Porter Davis

Hi WGB,
I've been watching your build, on your blog you posted your fixing/waterproofing report from Darabecca, how did you go with getting the items fixed?

Thanks for that, sounds like they have changed some of their colour schemes since we did our colour selections back in September last year! Our internal scheme is Harvest,…

Hi Newport 275+,
Your place looks amazing!

That's pretty crap that the valuations are coming in so far under, especially given it's a house and land package!
Are any of the banks able to provide an indication of…

Hopefully, a different bank has helped you with the valuation problem you're seeing?
If it's any help I list the changes we made in our PWC her viewtopic.php?p=1610302#p1610302

We kind of selected our land by accident. We had started saving and were getting to the point of "so how much will this actually cost us". We had…

We're getting close to titles and was wondering if anyone knows how quickly HBC get the temporary fence up? We've noticed some of the other builders like to dump rubbish…

On building on a block of your choice, we did this. We purchased the block we're building on from Stockland and then took that to HBC. We did…

It may, definitely worth asking your broker if it would help or not, especially if you plan to take the heating out.

Heating wise a builder will normally install a 3 star heater (this is what HBC do). The big payoff of…
