Building the Denver 29 with Metricon

Who knows... SM keeps saying yes very soon, and yes we'll get handover before Christmas, I have my doubts.

re-build new house without driveway ?

Do you really want to build with someone who doesn't allow y

Our full contract with full pricing was available weeks before our contract appt with Metricon.
There was no way we'd have signed otherwise.

Finally we have a little movement again! Floor plastic has been removed from the timber in prep for site clean and polishing.

Not sure - you'd have to check directly with PTF. Could be the same engineered timber skin. The advantage of post-finished is no quad anywhere; cabinets are installed after floor…
