Thanks everyone! We must say that although communication hasn't been a strong point, we've nothing to complain about with our build.

Both Site Supervisors we've had (Darren and Daniel) have been fantastic and are a credit to Porter Davis! Thank you for making our build such a pleasure and stress free time. We really have a beautiful house that we are so happy to now call our home. There are a few minor things to be sorted, as you would expect with any build but they are not an issue. Will definitely post pictures once the floor is done and we've moved in.

They wind out at the bottom and are attached to the frame at the top. Just your standard awning window :wink:



Hi Inglrwood , do u use "neutral " colour motar??

It looks quite nice. My understanding is it looks a bit greish than "off white"

Does PD charge extra for that?


We just chose the standard mortar and are very happy with the colour. They do charge extra for a different colour and from memory, it was one or the other, not a range of colours you could choose from - but we did our colours about one year ago, so things might be different now.

No, the only ones that are like that are the wind out windows. The photo of the whole window was taken on my iPhone and the photo looks warped (just updated our phones to the 5 and these photos are a bit weird sort of squishing it all in to the middle) - I'll try to take my camera next time to get a better photo.

The walls and the frame are fine and measure correctly. You can see the gap between the window frame and the window itself at the top and bottom is wider than the gap across the middle. The window itself is what is out of whack and would have been made this way in the factory - must have had a glitch in the system when they made our lot. Hopefully we'll find out more once we speak to our SS about it.

The window bit that winds out is measuring at 51mm across the width at the bottom, 56mm across the middle and 51mm across the width at the top


inglewood, what about the pivot position being in the middle, i.e. these are awning windows right and they protrude outwards at the bottom and inwards at the top, so they have to be connect/coupled to the frame at some position right,

so that position is the centre of the frame, maybe its pretty normal then??

wow - would love to know this too. What sort of price is it? We have cork in our current home and it's fantastic - even if it looks a big daggy. We've been considering vinyl roll Gerflor Primetex for our new home which looks like timber.

Les Apac Les Apac

that's quite odd looking, squeezed in at the centre, it looks to me like the walls are like that and the window has been squashed in to accomodate? check the dimensions on the walls. Does the window open okay???

whats more confusing is the dimensions, looks to be 56cm top and bottom and 56.5cm middle when the middle is squished?? HOW COULD IT BE BIGGER? than top and bottom?

do you have any workmanship or tolerance allowances in your contract? i'm sure it probably doesn't go into such detail.


Les Apac Les Apac

ah yeah it makes sense now, the middle is 5mm wider than top and bottom and its squished in that gives the impression its narrower, if you look at the top and bottom there's probably a 2.5mm gap on the left and right but no gap in the middle.

i expect its the hole the window is put in, not the window itself,

bit of a shame eh, are they all like that?

PCI is on Tuesday. Went up to the house today and back door was open so we could get in a check it all out. Really happy with how it's going. One thing hubby noticed was that our wind out windows are not quite right...

Unfortunately the photos look a bit distorted due to being taken on the iphone but you can still see the problem. The window is about 1/2cm wider across the middle than the top and the bottom. They still open and shut ok, but it can't be right for them to be out this much! Has anyone else experienced this? Surely it needs to be square.

Apart from the photo being a bit warped, the gap between the top of the window frame and the window is much wider at the top and bottom of the window than at the middle.

So we've sent a message to our site supervisor and hopefully they'll be able to replace the windows - thankfully the frames are ok, its just the windows. There must have been some sort of glitch when they were being manufactured.

Oh no! Bummer about your PCI being put off adj. Ours is set for next Tuesday - Should be safe (only things left to do are install the spa and the splash back and just the little touch ups they'll do after PCI)

Yep, sometimes PD's left hand doesn't seem to know what its right hand is doing.... And I agree with the writing thing. Get everything in writing. Even if it's just a text message. Our SS asked us if we wanted the left over bricks that were still stacked up (they get rid of the loose ones). We said yes. No bricks were left behind when the brickies left (and there had been plenty!). SS asked us if we wanted the left over colourbond roofing, we said yes. It was taken away when they did the site clean. Neither of these things we had in writing because it was a verbal question when we were with him, we should have sent him a text afterwards to confirm it :( Pity, because we have paid for the bricks and the colourbond. We had thought a brick letterbox would be nice, it's just handy to have some spare bricks laying around, hubby was planning on using the colourbond when he makes the aviary. Our SS has been great, don't get me wrong - this is the only complaint we can make about him (and site clean was done just over he had handed over to another SS who will see out our build - not sure why the change, maybe he is going on holidays).

Did anyone have their curtains and blinds measured by a third party before handover? We're thinking of having the curtain measurements done during one of the inspections.

Also did anyone manage to get heating points into the downstairs ensuite and laundry (to dry clothes in winter)?

We have our contact appointment in a couple of days.



We're not building a double story, but upgraded our heater and have had extra ducts put in in the laundry (for clothes drying), ensuite and bathrooms.

Ours is going well. PCI in one week. Our SS has been fabulous. Can't see too much that needs fixing - apart from plaster that the electricians wrecked when they were putting in downlights and switches - several are going to need the plasterers to come back and fix it up. All the other tradies have been so meticulous and you can tell they take pride in their work, but obviously not the electricians. Hoping that those things will be fixed before PCI. Taps and basins are in, waiting on shower screens and splash back now. House was all locked up on the weekend so we couldn't get in to see those things in the bathroom and ensuite.
Good to hear that others are nearing the end too! Exciting times

PCI is set for the 7th of March! Wahoo! :z: :z: We were hoping it might be a week earlier but there was a bit of a hold up with the shower screens. We are trying to get it a few days earlier - fingers crossed.

We don't anticipate many issues in our PCI so handover should be on the 14th they say. Some issues are obvious plastering fix ups from when downlights were installed, the electricians were really rough and there are a few other holes to be patched up from when they were installing one or two of the power switches - hoping they do them before PCI so we can say if we are happy with them then. We haven't seen too many other concerns when we've been there. Our SS has been on top of things and has sorted things out before we've even noticed them.

BTW - How long does PCI usually take?


Congratulations!!

Last house PCI took about two and 1/2 hours. (Major geek alert). I did a spreadsheet room by room listing power points, light switches, data points, foxtel points, taps types, floor type, etc as we moved into each room I ticked it all off. We had a night light that we put into every power point to test that it worked (two didn't) Switching lights off and on, Ixltastic fans, light and heat (one heat lamp did not work) taps off and on, check the basins drain, toilets flushed, grout around edges of tiles to walls, checked laminate doors and cupboards for scratches, bench tops for scratches and chips, tested drawer handles, range hood venting, open and shut doors, make sure they close and open smoothly, that you have privacy locks where they are supposed to be, runners for sliding doors, door stops, mirrors, fly screens, sharp pieces of tile where they have cut tiles in the shower or bath etc. also made a list for the garage and outside too.

Yes, I am a geek. We found at the side of the bathroom vanity a big scratch which we would not have seen until we got in the bath, some door stops missing, a fan that did not work, a couple of cupboard doors that did not line up properly when closed, a couple of chipped and cracked bricks, a sliding door that did not go back all the way into the cavity, millions of red dots for paint touch ups, some bad joins in the gutters. Just lots of little things. That's what PCI is for.

I then had a list of everything that was to be fixed so it was easy to walk through at hand over and see that everything had been done.

It's easy in the excitement and impatience of needing / wanting to be in to miss things, but you will be paying for your house for quite a few years, so you need to be dispassionate about it. Remember you are being asked to pay probably between $300-$500k for this house, if it was a car would you accept it with scratches and dings?

Hope that this helps.


Thanks Back Pocket - that's a big, huge help. Might make up a spreadsheet too with the things you mentioned above. I didn't think to check the taps and power points.

Our house went on the market yesterday....

.... and is now under contract!!!!

Happy with no conditions and flexible settlement and a good price! Win Win Win!

Biggest win is no longer having to maintain the display home look while you live in a house on the market.

Congratulations Suzy!! I am very happy for you :z: :z: ::cheerleader:: ::cheerleader:: ::cheerleader::

Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts, my home is fine, so is my sister's, we don't know about my brother's home as yet though. He lives on Kilmore-Lancefield Rd, about 1km from me towards Lancefield, the road is still blocked off (despite what it says on the Vicroads website and the Fireready app), so our heart's are in our throat's until we know for sure. The police at the roadblock are saying it might be a couple of days yet till they let anyone through, because of the hot dry weather that is forecast.

My build has been coming along wonderfully too until now :)

Would love to see some pictures of all these beautiful homes that are about to be handed over, especially the kitchens please.



So glad your home and your sister's home is fine! Hope your brother's house is ok and that you can find out soon!

Will post some pics of our kitchen so far soon. Glad your build is going well too!

woohoo!!! two days til handover!
does anyone else have Phil has their SS? he has been just wonderful! He has made the build so much easier than our last build, with a different builder.
Couldn't be happier!!



Excellent news!!!!

We aren't far behind you either. Tiles were put up and on today - grouting will be done tomorrow we assume. Wardrobes are fitted, door handles are on, lights, switches and power points are all in. It was a hive of activity there this morning when we visited.

Fires were very close to our new home. Probably about 500m away! so close!!!!

Hoping that Country Lifestyle's home is ok!!!

V-line train going along the Bendigo line. The fire jumped the train line. This is how close it was to our new home!
The timber in the foreground is our boundary fence (the black next to the tree is stones :wink: ).

Our SS has been fantastic too! So pleased and impressed with him!
