Looking great Trimum - go with what you want, and colorbond is better than a timber fence.

So glad to hear that the driveway is in and you have a time for PCI.
Sorry to hear that the driveway isn't really what you want.

Algernon,
Everything is looking great, and it must be good to be coming to the end of the build.
Hope that your moving in goes smoothly as well.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you Trimum.
That's an awful lot of damage that needs repairing. Did you have your own localised earthquake or just sloppy tradies?
