Congrats Gibson. Did you get a walk through with the SS recently (to list out defects) or is PCI it?

Izee - we used site demolition as they were linked to Masterton and were priced competitively. They did a good job. We had a lot of problems with them but…

Izee, it's standard. Damage is inevitable due to tip trucks, digging for gas lines. I think you're meant to rectify it when you do your driveway. We had to pay…

Looks great Martin's harmony. I vote for the stain - the colour of the current edges looks really good!

Saltwater - we paid $1265 for 3 phase. when i researched at the time (a year ago), many in my area were paying $1045 for single phase. probably depends on…

Shiraz_elite: Their quality is generally good, bar a few horror builds. Main issue is time. Outer areas seem to be quite fast but inner west/West Sydney generally takes forever due…

Even funnier, the SS told us today he hasn't spotted the painter for a while and he might need to get a new one if this one doesn't reappear.
Hilarious,…

If the painter is still lurking around, pay him a bit extra for another coat. We have tailwind and it varies from green to a nice off white depending on…

Gibson / Rox82, same here. Way over and snails pace. Almost no progress from just before Easter until this week when a few trades pitched up. So close for so…

It's normally a lot darker when laid - true colour takes a couple of weeks to come through once it dries out. Ours wasn't charcoal so not sure what that's…

Actually, even though ours is similar to yours (just one plank) its a lot better because it's nailed in the side so better able to oppose the downforce. Yours is…

See as many display homes as possible and note down the things you really like. We looked at M but also some high end builders (>$1m build) for ideas.…

Standard buildings contracts. They dont entertain changes to the core contract at all so I don't think lawyer will help. I think all project builders are like this so…

Yes, that's it. We thought it was left over scrap so we asked the SS last week when the reinforcing was getting put in! They nail it from the side…

Same happened to us, although they gave us the option to delay. Just that drafting are so slow, it would have delayed an extra 2 months. Our plans only got…

Well done- exciting phase coming up! Hopefully you get the slab in before the Xmas shut down, so its ready straight after
