Aveling Build NOR - We have Keys!

I'm too exhausted to go into a full response but we have keys!
I was a bit of an anti-climax and there are still some items that need fixing, however they…

We can cancel tomorrow and it's still an option for us. I have all my trades lined up though. It's so annoying that they are leaving it to the last…

Handover is still going ahead for tomorrow and I am dreading it. We'll be put in the unfortunate position of do we accept handover or not.
Today we discovered that…

Hi tm
It went ok. Still a few things to do fixed. They still reckon handover will be friday but I'm not confident
Pretty fed up now. Still no definitive end…

Hi
You will get a new girl once you enter construction. We had to go back to Kassy a few times for answers too.
I'll look out for your build! Hopefully…

After a week of not getting a response, I went into the office.
I did a bit of a rant and it probably fell on deaf ears but I have…

12.5m frontage in Banksia Grove

It's a building code requirement here to have a separate sink for laundry.

Hi avelingvinesbuild (AVB!)
Are you starting a thread? I'd be keen to follow it and see how you get on. Hopefully things will go smoothly for you.
Shame you've had to wait…

Good luck to you too!
Let me know if you have any news

We got a revised one today, still no final prices though! We like the plan and we're looking forward to it being done.
I want to fast forward these next…

Yeah, overall the house is nice. Once those final items are done it'll be great. I'm looking forward to seeing it painted and the flooring done. Also looking forward to…

We won't be accepting it until it's completed to how it should be.
For us, it doesn't matter if they say this is PCI or not, if it's not ready, it's…

PCI was this morning, if you can call it that. The house isn't practically ready which will now create problems with the contract timeframes, final invoice amount and bank releasing…

Hi JKG
I'm sorry to hear that, hopefully they'll look a little better once they are painted.
The fella and I did a pre PCI inspection today in preparation for tomorrow…

Our inspector is coming along to the inspection with the supervisor. Not quite sure how it's going to work yet. Maybe my inspector will go off and do his own…

Paving
White set touch ups
Painting (internal & external)
HWS
Appliances
Electrical finals (80% done)
Insulation
Mirrors and shower screens
Door furniture
Clean (internal & external)
I don't think the…

We've booked the inspector. Builder hasn't confirmed in writing that it'll be on 13th March yet!
Other than that we're ready. Just hoping the fella can get in before PCI…

We can take this as a lesson learned, albeit a very expensive one.
Let me know how you get on with getting answers from them

I complained to Aveling yesterday about their appalling customer service. I bet nothing changes. Sucks that it's us that ha to suffer through this. Took me a week to get…

So much to organise, why can't they give more notice! At least I have a date and can sort my life out now

Landscaper said it would be around the 100m2 mark so figured they might as well quote. Like you said, would be so much easier to get the front done by…
