It was just under $2000 and included an inspection at slab, frame, pre lining, lock up and handover.
Not a lot of $ considering how much you'll be spending over…

We used Houspect on recommendation from others. They were very thorough, but I guess we're all human and make mistakes. In our case it was probably one of those things…

Congratulations on your rapidly construction progress and thank you for sharing.
I am building Bristol 35 SQS with Eden Brae Homes in Denham Park, Willowdale in South West Sydney.

We finished building with EBH mid way through last year. I am a landscaper and it wasn't until the house was finished that I finalised my landscape plan.

That's the one. They will be there within 20 days!

We were in the same boat last year. They did our peg out between Christmas and New year and then were back on deck around the 10th of January. I…

The hybrid frame is steel wall frames and timber roof trusses.
Our colourbond roof came with anticon blanket included. That was all part of our upgrade package.

We were upgraded to hybrid. I was happy for that, purely for the termite protection.
Spoke to a few builders and the only negative they mentioned was as you say it's…

Probably. You will see 4 (maybe more) timber pegs in the corners, just outside where the house will sit.

After peg out, your job is released to construction (this is when we found out who our supervisor was) and then they have 20 days to be onsite.

We went with Commonwealth. They were fine with our progress payments.

Ours was after the frames were delivered.

Didn't ask about changing it.
They could possibly put in timber battons. But you can just screw in to your steel studs - just need different type of screws.

They are now doing hybrid frame. Steel wall/ timber roof trusses.
Came in just before we signed our final docs last year. I was extremely happy. Termites can't eat steel!

I'm sure they'll do almost anything if you're willing to pay for it.
If they wont, they can leave a cabinet out (as in the case of a dishwasher space)…

Hi Nekual,
We are due to complete this week. We used a company called Houspect for independent inspections.
They did 5 in total and were very thorough. They organised inspections through our…

EBH are using Local Group certifiers for ours. Ours is CDC, not sure if it changes for a DA, but I can't see why it would.

I believe any external walls of the garage will just be left as brick internally. The ones that are adjoined to the rooms of the house will be gyprocked.
