Apparently Metricon made over $1.58 billion last financial year and jumped to 22nd position out of the top 500 private companies in Australia. Pretty sure it’s all our upgrades that’s made them the truckloads of money! [emoji852]️[emoji383][emoji383][emoji383] So a $50k fine is a drop in the ocean ...

Hi all, Just a quick update. Despite getting handover over a week and a half ago, we still haven’t been able to move in as M still hasn’t fulfilled the conditions required by the private certifier to obtain the interim occupation certificate[emoji849] How M’s processes could have allowed handover w...
Yes, this exact same thing happened to us too! They made it sound like getting the interim OC was just an easy thing to...

Thank you, its very trying indeed! Yes sounds like you’ll be needing a new tap. Nothing surprises me anymore with these builders. Hope you find some peace, and everything is fixed ASAP.

Yes, it’s exactly the same here. 20 months since handover and still having Metricon fixing things. The biggest issue we had were the malfunctioning stacker doors. Metricon kept insisting they were fine, but we kept arguing that they weren’t. Anyhow, the doors are now fixed and we’ve finally been abl...

With solid timber you wouldn’t need it. But with others ie bamboo, laminates etc apparently you need extra expansion gaps at hallway and entry to rooms.

Hi guys! I’m having floating floor boards installed, but the guy doing it insists on ugly expansion gaps and trims across several doorways. It’s so bloody ugly, but he says it has to be done. So my question is, did anyone else have this done too, or is there another way around this? Any tips, sugges...

Hi All Need some suggestion please. I opted for 600mm eaves but due to council restriction M can’t provide it just for the garage side. All other sides including first floor is fine to have 600mm eaves. Below is a sketch with 450mm eaves in garage and 600mm for rest. Could you please let me know if...
Don’t stress, we had to have shorter eaves on the garage side too, and it all looks fine! No body will even notice beca...

Yes unfortunately I knew they were going to do this, because that’s what they tried to do to us! It’s a catch 22 situation- you don’t want them to continue without fixing all their mistakes first, and they won’t “fix” their mistakes unless they continue with the build. It’s at a standstill and Metri...

We are two thirds of the way through the build and have identified significant structural defects in the house. Many elements do not c...
