It is terrible that the builder can act in such a way and treat you so badly! I am amazed at how these companies have no regard for anyone with their actions. To remove your fence and re-attach it without your permission is inexcusable. I don't have a kind word to say about PD. PD is building a hous...

Your house looks very modern, which I really like. Our homw will have traditional touches and modern touches, hopes it looks ok when al...

Thank you all for the great tips! I have already taken most of them and incorporated them into the house. A few of them it is too late and we can't make changes at this date. We did get the tap in the fridge space and we had the skirting board put on because the builder charges extra to leave them o...

We are building our first home. The reasons differs from my husband to me. Hubby wanted to build for the stamp duty savings. I wanted to build because I looked at quite a few established houses and they were so expensive compared to what you get. I compared the costs of buying established with the b...

Ok, I did miss quite a bit! Those are all excellent points. I am making a list now. I thought about the water tap in the fridge space and then I totally forgot about it. We are planning on upgrading our fridge and I forgot about the tap thing. I have to have powerpoints in the hallway for vacuuming....

Hello All, We just went through our colour selection and I wondering if anyone had suggestions on things to look out for before contract. You know the little things that you forget. For instance, our sales consultant forgot to give us an electrical plan! We tried to review the plan and add in lights...

Hello All, With the recent rise in interest rates and the projected future rises, has anyone had to change or delay their house plans? With the continual jumps in house prices and higher interest rates, we are feeling the squeeze. We have put off building for a while longer. The house prices are ris...

Thanks to everyone and there advice. I am trying to get past the fear. Building is very daunting and I had never expected it to be so such a task. We keep pouring over designs and builders and I can't make a decision. In the meantime, all of the builders are raising prices and that is stressing me o...
