Gaps on exterior

You have warranty for a reason. I would be asking the builder, even if you just send him some pictures via email and see what he replies.

Anything I'm missing??

If you know who you're going to build with, bring them into the conversation now before you plunge into the land.

Need Expert advice on eaves level issue

Ask your private building inspector that you used for the build, they should be familiar with your build and will have first hand knowledge of the builders practices.

Getting out of HIA contract

It can depend on what stage you are at? Generally (most decent companies) will only charge you for what work they have already completed. If you haven't went to site…

Itemised Build Invoice

You'll never get an itemized bill I doubt. The problem is, if the builder goes over on one part of the build and under on another part, then of course…

What to do when the builder refused to rectify the defects?

Now you've added the kitchen plans to the original post, you should be able to take them to task for not having it installed as per plans.

I think you're going to struggle with this one. Unless you specified what you wanted exactly and it's written somewhere that's signed by both, then they probably wont fix it.…
