The gaps around the alfresco and laundry doors are ok. They get filled in later on when the full facing for the doors is done. We had the same question at our place. It will be fine. Windows - not so sure. Would be asking about that. In most cases there is a reason and explanation for this stuff. Th...

@dper It seems like its a common thing that the site costs keep on rising above the initial quote. . That is completely based on your block. The initial quote is an estimate, and if you don't go for fixed site costs you take the risk that the costs will increase when they look at the actual block w...

We were about to sign with Metricon when we discovered Carlisle. At the time it was more about the house suiting our needs (we built the Ascot 35) as the Metricon sales person was lovely and the experience had been fine. The promotion Carlisle was running was great and as you said the upgrades were ...

Congrats on starting the journey! I assume you have a block of land? If so, what direction does the house face?

I agree with the above. Stand your ground and make them do something about it.

At the very least I'd be demanding that the cost of the niches be refunded. Horrible, horrible workmanship.

No way would I be accepting that join. Looks like a bad home handyman job.

Oh yes it was Paramount. It was a standard facade at the time. Didn't get around to blogging as well. I do have a bunch of new pics which I will put up soon. At this point we wouldn't change a thing! Very happy!

Yes our floor was Cat 1. :) The facade was one of the standard ones - can't remember what it was called? We were very happy with the whole experience - hope you are too!

Hey xjohnno! Today I took the trek out to Clyde (from Epping) so I could see the Merdian. It's on display there, right next to the ascot. AND, I like to ascot better! It flows much better. So, have given up on the bigger bedrooms for a smarter looking house. So, still waiting on some prices, but lo...
