Hi, it's been amazingly fast. Everday there's been someone there doing something. Been a bit of a hold up for things like them not having enough tiles, plasters running late and meetings with painters go on and on. I think I have a forgetful painter he doesn't call to change appointment time, when h...

Great house design, good choice. It's similar to a base we chose before modifying evetything to suit the kitchen I wanted and get the best aspect from our land. Apart from occasional long waits the build process is amazing. Were a few weeks away from completion and can't wait to move in. Enjoy every...

Yeah the Beaumont lady at Tweed.was so nasty, well that was months ago now and only couple more weeks and i'll have the tiles, just ...

Hi, Re: mortar colour-we chose the stonewash brick and absoloutly love it. Was so worried when I say it first laid on Monday but as now it's started to dry the natural light grey mortar seems fine. I guess it depends on the overall look you like, were fine as the rest of the colours are grey and it ...

Hi, yes I understand. We went everywhere, looked at everything we could. Must of went to 3 carpetcalls but they each didn't know about exactly the carpets as they said the included ranges change every few months for different builders. The rest is straight forward and hint taps/handles same brands c...

Hi, Carpet upgrade was around a thousand so worth it as the standard isn't that nice especially for a very young family we want to keep things as soft as possible. We just couldn't afford an alfresco but in time a bbq area/ undercover patio may come and we see it as will probably be there 50 yrs or ...

Yep, things are definitly flying. It seems getting that start date was the hardest most time consuming thing, after that it's been great. The rooms are exactly as I imagined, perfect. We never saw a display of what we liked so it was all in our minds till now but when I see it, it's like I always ne...

Ok i'll do my best to answer. We had a few tender meetings to ensure we had everything set for the contract. Then the contract was received after ages, we signed paid deposit, 2 weeks passed then we got meetings, tiles, colour, electrical. I work full time so as we were pretty certain what tiles we ...

Sorry to hear your experiencing Corals lack of considering people have time expectations. From when we signed to job start took soo long but I must say they have made up on time pretty quickly. We have a roof as of today and I couldn't be happier. With Coral it seems patience pays off. Good luck wit...

Practicality a ling bench is great, heightwise, you w...
