Metricon or Clarendon....Can't decide??

Wide block with narrow floorplan

Our block width and house width were similar to Steve4216's, but that is what we wanted, as we are putting a pool at the wider side.

Welcome to both forum and fellow Clarendon builder in QLD.
Did you make many structural variations to the floorplan?
As to the tender I couldn't comment. Didn't even know it was…

Stellabella's second build - work stopped...again - 1 month+

Awww, she looks precious. Great that she is putting on the weight. Congratulations!
Are you both thinking of selling it once it is finished?

Yay! Happy moving in, and getting everything organised. It'll be a busy time ahead, but so worth it. Will look forward to seeing 'completed home' pictures when it occurs.

Thanks Rhetti. We got the kitchen colour inspiration from a Metricon display home we had walked through.

Might be a little hard to unpack but:

Had our practical completion inspection today. They are still finalising a few things, such as the cabinetry in the kitchen and they have to replace the front door.

The driveway, with our additions, was done yesterday.

The goop is now also off the windows.

Haha yeah, we upgraded to the Fujitsu. And fair enough. We intend on being in this house for at least 10 years, so made sense for us. :-D

That is nice and compact. Ours is the beast we expected:

Did you end up upgrading the air-con model?

We've been informed our handover date will be 13 August.
Not sure when we'll have our PCI walkthrough before that date yet.

Nice! Your frontage must be nice and wide. On acreage?
I guess that is what a long time between land purchase and house design gives you, so much well-thought out…

There are still boxes of tiles, but haven't checked closely to see if they are simply the unlaid ones or leftovers as well.
