Your contract will state how many days they allow for your build - including days off for bad weather etc. If they go over the number of days, they have…

We were told at contract signing that the only thing M don’t pay during build is the water usage. Better follow this up with your SM.

Sounds like you have a good SM now! It could have been all too easy for him to ignore those issues and just continue with the build. Great to know…

I can’t believe the pace of the build! Such a great result after your admin nightmare. Did you get a resolution re the render?

There is definitely something NQR going on. No consistency among our experiences at all....

We didn’t include Brivis system at sales. It is what comes standard with house. We got a credit of $4k when taking it out for the new system.

No, the pricing seemed to depend on how many zones you got. I don’t think house size mattered - but I could def be wrong. Possibly they worked price out…

About $22k once they took out $4k for credit back for standard ducted heating. Got the action heating and refrig cooling with 2 zones for the Glendale 42.

This isn’t a quote from Metricon. It is a separate quote from a town planning company they recommend.
