Hi, We had to make quite a few changes to our plans due to council regulations (we are in a heritage area) and Henley did these without any drama or issue at all. Maybe it was because it was they were council regulations rather than just us deciding to make the changes. We are very very happy with t...

We tried to maintain clear communication at all times and inspected the house as many times as we could during the building process to make our SS aware of errors or issues as they arose. This w...

But for us it wasn't so much about the profit, more about the physical labour of someone else having to haul that pile of bricks away. On my ebay listing l was clear that they needed to bring their own tarp (as they...

Hi DeeElle, They are the Uniclic system so no glue has been used. l had the Premium rep come out who was a really straight shooting type of guy and he said timber is a natural product and this is a normal occurance of the settling process.

Hi DeeElle, We had the exact same thing happen to us and our brand new house 2 days after our boards were laid and the day we had our appliances installed. Our issue was a blocked sewerage pipe and our builder didn't properly install the overflow vent outside, so it backed up into the house. Our iss...
