hey I was so upset about our first report too. I made a huge song and dance about it. My SS was great, he rang me and read through each…

our bedroom is at the front of the house and I sleep so light so there is no way they'd be able to do that to us. We have the…

no what's there is what will go in so ring your SS straight away - make sure you check your plans were right before calling him too!

Yeah the paint quality isn't great, especially in our toilet, we can actually see the thick cut in line around the skirting board which should be invisible. We'll eventually be…

a) yes you can custom pick colours, but you need to pay $400 (that's what the fee was when I did pre start). This will also mean you will get…

Have you told your SS about the wonky tiles? Let him know straight away so he can get into it. We discovered incorrect tiles and Caesarstone had been installed when…

:( sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll present you with a much nicer one?

That's the HBC letter box that my neighbours got. We got one that looks much the same in grey for $290 at Masters

Who wanted to see what a $690 letter box looks like?

I agree, we have a sandy-beige external main colour and I don't like it. We did choose to upgrade our roof and garage door and make them charcoal instead…

We checked the floor plan for the measurements and then measured all our furniture to make sure it would fit before we signed up. We love our King size bed…

We are 3.6 X 3.3 and we find it too cramped. We do have a king size bed though, and it's a massive one so that's having an impact. To…

Overall I wish we'd paid to go custom.
In terms of colour, I regret the colour of our window frames, they're an awful beige colour. I hate them so much I…

yeah hugely paranoid, I have a few regrets lol

Hmmm a white roof... wouldn't that get filthy really quickly? I'm having trouble visualising it, I'd have to see the rest of your colours with it.

lol, it's not very impressive I'm sorry to say.

My next door neighbours have a HBC letterbox, I can take a pic of it for you when I get home if you like?

2 years2 yearspugloverpuglover posted:

I'm pretty sure there is, we wanted some extra fans but they were so ridiculously expensive we decided not to do it with HBC.

That's so exciting! It was very wet when they did our site scraping, which was amusing given it was February. They had to let it dry out before pouring the…

I honestly have no idea, there was someone here who needed to have their entire slab re-poured after the Darbecca inspection.

I'd be most concerned about the slab being poured during a period of wet weather. The soil is meant to be dry. My SS popped in the other day to…

Forgot, or couldn't be bothered? I would lose my mind, that's completely unacceptable. I'd get Darbecca to do a slab inspection and I'd be speaking to your Client Liaison about…

I wish I'd gone it alone at your age, Tay. Good on you! Work your *** off and pay it off in 15 years!
