I actually believe there are Two crews with Metricon.

House is looking great and the progress is really fast.
Are you using a Building inspector?

That’s shocking quality. Makes you wonder if they’re building a chicken pen or a house.

They’re really eager for PC to happen so this…

My KDR Metricon Hampshire - Liberty - 45 Melb

I Can’t believe they reduced designer roof insulation to r4.0 now. On Freedom/ Metro that’s ok, but not on Designer level homes.
It’s like how they deliberately don’t have a…

It might be an extra inspection but if the slab is not level,…

a) build solid slab over the area instead of waffle pod

I did.
Try for $60 per day not the standard $30 per workingday.
