Quick question for anyone who's still alive in here, is anyone on Exetel for NBN in Woodcroft?
I've heard the speeds can be hit and miss depending on the area.

I'm now getting quotes on Driveway and Perimeter Concreting as well as Stormwater installation.
I'm yet to look into carpets, and also thinking of doing floating floors myself.
Getting close though.

Hi Damien/Lanni,
Thanks for the interest.
Still at slab stage. I've had the timber as well as bricks delivered and there's a port-a-potty out the front, but no progress for like 6…

Hi Lana,
Thanks, I'm really glad I changed my mind about the Grange bricks. It really depends on the colour scheme you pick for that brick, I've seen some fantastic looking…

Apologies oneJohn for not making use of your wonderful modelling skills.
I do appreciate the time you had put into making them up for me! It was good to visualise it,…
