We've recently taken possession of our new build and are currently living through the maintenance period. We are looking at installing some wireless cameras (to supplement the existing camera blind spots), but the house is largely comprised of exsulite EPS. Now I realise you can't really attach anyt...

We are now only 1 week away from handover! The floor went down last week and we have the pre-handover inspection this week. Handover will pretty much be bang-on the 35 weeks we were promised.

The scaffolding came down this week and we got our first look at the house. https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/74436_1581228444.jpg

We have a void above the entry in our build. It's still at frame stage at the moment so a little hard to picture how successful or otherwise it will be.

Appreciate the feedback! Yeah, probably too far along to do much the alfresco area. Will just have to see how it turns out. We'll look to plants to help with the west facing windows. The door suggestion is a good one that we'll look into.

Been to visit the site a few times - still only frame up but all the rooms and spaces feel smaller than we thought it would. Our project manager said it will feel bigger once the walls, ceilings and things go in - which sounds counterintuitive to us. Wouldn't it feel even smaller once everything has...

Hey mate, which builder do you go with in Canberra? Did you end up changing the plans from last year? We went with Blackett Homes - no the plans stayed pretty much the same.

Hi we went to inspect our site after the slab was laid and noted a few “scars” along the side of the slab and looks to be exposed. What do people think? Is this going to be a problem? Should I raise it with the builder? https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/74436_1571011928.jpeg

Thanks for that! Yes, you were right. They drew us a diagram and helped clear things up!

So our builder just informed me that due to depth of the sewer pipes or something, they need to raise our slab by 150mm - problem being that the house will now exceed the local height limit. His suggestion was to a) lower the upper floor ceiling or b) "bring on upper RHS parapet wall in to be 2...

Did they even come out and take a look at your block? Would be good to know how they come up with that figure. They may have done some ground testing in the area that shows the ground needs some special prep or something. Ask them to justify the cost - if they can't, then look elsewhere! Follow our ...

We just started our build last week and turned up to watch the demolition! We'll probably visit the site once every few weeks to document the progress. Follow our project at https://the35thweek.blogspot.com/
