Good luck Aphsta. It'll feel like forever and then all of a sudden you'll be moving in to your new home.
We moved in to our place 2 weeks ago.…

Hi
We allocated $5k for electrical and $15k for kitchen. Went over with the kitchen but it's got a lot of upgrades and electrical was spot on - again with a…

Painting concrete

Hi guys, already done a fair bit of research on this and think I've pretty much got it figured out apart from how much hydrochloric acid I need. It's a…

We are about 1.5 weeks from handover now, it's getting exciting again!
How are the other builds going? Any pics?

Man, that's a massive timeframe. Hopefully things speed up now for you.
I doubt there's much you can do apart from paying more to get your stone tops. A tender isn't…

I can't answer your question but curious about your build time? Is it getting close to the end of the contract timeframe or do you think they're ahead of schedule?

A little slow at the moment. Still waiting for our stacker doors to be delivered which is having a flow on effect to everything else. My shed's getting a roof…

Is it a bit difficult to find a way in at this stage? It's looking good, how long to go?

Update
Our bricks are mostly done but there is a bit of a delay because our sliding stacker doors out to the al fresco were made back to front. Allworth have…

What have people done with their al fresco areas? We're undecided at this stage. We were going to pave it but now are considering a deck. I like the paving…

It was $440. We got a bit lucky because they already had one in stock. If they didn't, they wouldn't have had time to get one and we would have…

I was able to get our a/c upgraded to a Daikin unit. The installer was very helpful.
Our bricks should be done by the end of the week and there's plenty…

I've just been doing a little research on the ducted air system provided with our house. It's called Brivis and the reviews are terrible! With so much going on I…

Looks great Zowie, we've picked similar colours in our kitchen but in a different order.
Bricklayers started at our place on Friday and plumbers have been in this week too.

Landscape plans for council

Hi Phillip we did our own with coloured pencils on an A4 sheet of paper. Our council didn't require anything more than that.

Yes they're out of stock. We could have gone to our 2nd option but are pretty set on what we want so are happy to wait.
They have done our windows…

Cool! I really like the cladding, will definitely look better painted.
We've had a bit of progress too. I think that shut down is a little white lie. Had phone calls…

Hi Scott
I'm currently building with them. What do you want to know?

I think we have a roof too. Gone away for Christmas though so I don't have any photos yet. Here's what it looked like earlier in the week.

Wow it's going up so fast, you must be pleased.
Our slab was done yesterday. I've got pics but can't figure out how to attach them from my phone.

No expert but the ones around here I've seen all get the roof first.
We've got some progress too. Excavation on Saturday and then Concretor setting up form work today. Plan…

Wow that's terrible. Thanks for sharing though. So they had power during the build and then it was cut off after handover?
Ours is also a knockdown…

I'm a little confused about the process for the build. Our 20 working days after contract signing ended last Thursday. We were contacted on the day to advise…

Wow, it will be interesting to see how far you get before Xmas.
