We agreed in this but when the contractor went on site to start the retaining wall, the posts had already been laid and the fencers had started with the wall going up. I h...

There is always different builders who approach things differently but the 2 main differences I found was upgrades and build time. Upgrades with our Mel build and other builders we talked to was very different, even the smallest thing was considered upgrades, the standard inclusions were too basic a...

I have a general idea but would like to cover off everything as much as possible. Also if there are any ...

House slowly coming together. Internal painting starts next week. Neighbours are all moving in and now we can't wait to join them, it's all becoming surreal [emoji4][emoji4] https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170325/2e178fa1448fdb696c5837e82378fff2.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170325/5990...

It sounds like M is more organised over at VIC! In our case our SC has warned us multiple times that the staff at studio M don't do pricing so we've had almost everything added into our contract early on. When we got to our formal selections what we thought was only a few minor upgrades turned out ...

This is a post about carpet - my promotion included carpet, very basic carpet. I upgraded at Studio M to a category 5 but as part of cost cutting I decided to revert back to what was included later. A month or so on, my carpet consultant called me to confirm what carpet I was going with. Confused, ...
The progress looks great, not too far off now, I also opted for the dark carpets but Cat 2 ... It's good to see how it ...

Anyone have any advice on what our options are when Metricon continuously fail to meet their own stated deadlines for supplying final plans and submitting for the building permit once contracts are signed? We were promised so many times various dates, then told last Friday, then on Friday they said...

Just a quick note...after writing to my SM on Saturday re brickwork, I got a strongly worded note (copying in some others at M) back last night about accessing the site without a M representative, especially the scaffold and that this was not OK & against OHS. Fair enough re the scaffold though...
that's bloody annoying. If we see issues its better to report it!!! Well I hope you get it resolved Jason. Look forward...

We still have to wait for M to get us back most pricing but the whole process and flow went really well. Credits to both our Studio M and Cabinetry consultants :: They are ve...
Well done !! One more milestone achieved .. I had a similar experience with electricals, wasn't as much as I expected !...
