If your new guy has initials TC (aka you get allocated same SM as I have) you'll be in very safe hands but any delay in my job and I'll…

We're currently at the 4 week stage so I'm allowing at least 6-8 weeks.

Welcome to homeone, your new facebook feed for everything to do with doing a KDRB.
In answer to your questions, in my humble opinion:
Most builders will have some sort…

$1700 for the overhead laundry cupboards. Painfully we're going to have to pay to have the hanging bar redone. Added to the post handover to do list.

Been a slower week on our build, just more chippy work, look like pantry wall units are going to be redone so a smaller size to allow for over hang,…

Sorry that was the pantry window, this is the kitchen.
