Ughh, I work hard enough Mon to Fri then kids sports etc, would hate a high maintenance block. I have attached a pic of my backyard lol.

Well I would say neither. Unless you want to spend every weekend mowing or fixing fences. Big block = Big jobs

If you are having trouble deciding then perhaps you ought to keep looking. Generally it's best to steer clear of other people's opinions when making such a personal opinion. Usually…

Just know that somethings shouldn't be sealed. Talk to your builder first I think.

Then don't talk to builders until your land settles.

Anyone building with ABC homes in qld?

Same QBCC licence number as Metricon Qld. As far as I know, they are located in North Lakes, Brisbane. Unsure what the business model is though.

Nothing, because my builder, Metricon fixed everything.

What a load of rubbish. Metricon fixed every defect found from every stage inspection. A decent inspector will list the Defects and how they violate the building code. And guess…

If op has concrete paths min fall 25mm over 1 metre to yard / perimeter drains it will be fine. 70mm fall is getting to be ridiculous and unusable. As…

25mm for concrete is all you need

My builder did it after my inspector pointed it out to them that it is a requirement. Cheers

Tell them to use flexible non permeable such as sikaflex

Don't pull out, just get a good independent building inspector for all of the stage inspections.

The OP shouldn't need a tribunal as the house is covered by its statutory warranty. All they need to do is call the builder who is mandated to fix it.
