We've sent out fencing notices to our neighbors, however one of the neighbors has responded by saying that they have sold their land to the developer although it has not yet settled, and that the developer is therefore the one who has to pay. I thought this was incorrect but checked with the develo...

We did the pre-slab, if you then get the frame inspection they do a complimentary slab inspection anyway. There's a whole bunch of stuff that gets combined and you get discounts if you do more than a couple of inspections anyway, our total cost for them all was about $2,600.

We have contracted Darbecca for our house inspections and I need to get back to them. Can I ask everyone what parts they used an independent inspector for? We used Darbecca as well and did all the inspection they offer. We combined the inspections that it was possible to do so for in order to save ...

We have finally started! Site started yesterday with a our site cut. I just wanted to ask what people have done with tracking their build and documenting things. I'm trying to find a way that will work for us, whether its a note book with notes, excel spreadsheet, some app etc. I plan on taking pho...

Yes we live about 5 minutes from the Vancouver in Mount Duneed, and have also visited Werribee and Bendigo. I feel like we have done a lot of research but you can never know! Of the changes you have suggested I would definitely agree with adding more room on to the garage, maybe even see if you can...

Hi all 👋🏼 We have signed with Porter Davis to build the Vancouver 33. Our 1763m2 block is in the new “The Green Estate” in Winchelsea. We have our tender appointment coming up and thought we might put it out there with what we are building to see if you all have any ideas or tips! We have chosen th...

I thought that's how it's done too. However, I asked my builder today, they said they've never seen anyone using cheque (my builder has got quite good and long reputation of more than 50 years in business). They said if we got cheque, we need to deposit this to the bank and wait for it to be clear ...
The way your builder is doing it makes sense. Bank cheques can be stolen or forged and they are certainly not the same ...

Hi All, I'm wondering how did you pay the final payment before handover. What option should I opt.? We have really tight schedule as our rental lease is ending extremely close to the time of expected handover. - Request bank cheque and handover to the builder after we are satisfied with all defects...
We paid the last stage via a bank cheque, they handed the keys over straight away rather than waiting for it to clear. ...

Finally had handover today after things didn't go to plan last week. Still a few issues to be rectified but overall happy and relieved to finally be able to start moving things in (After work!!) I'll be giving extensive feedback to Porter Davis on my various thoughts on parts of their processes, I ...
Congratulations on handover, sounds like there is always a bit more to be done but at least you have the house now!

Hi everyone, We went out to our block yesterday to check on our progress and they have nearly completed the downstairs frame. I didn't have a spirit level with me, but I could see two walls that were clearly not plumb. I took a couple of photos but I'm not sure what to do with them. I don't know wh...

How has everyone gone with their post handover service from Porter Davis? We've had a few issues which we need or want fixed before our 3 month checkup, but despite raising them 5 days ago we've heard nothing back so far. None of them are safety or structural issues but they are pretty inconvenient ...

@Waldorf_Grange_Build Wow what rough weather we're copping in Melbourne today - in a way its a good thing to pressure test the home for leaks and finding them so soon after handover! Presumably they're all fixable. Bit of an update on our side of the fence. As a reminder - we demolished in February...
I get the sense that they aren't that good at anything out of the ordinary and assume that everything will be fine with...

We had a little bit of water come in our laundry door but nothing major, and also discovered the al fresco slopes towards the house. Oh no, so water was just pooling there and not draining away? Yep, just pooling at the entry way to the house. We are going to get it tiled so maybe the tiler can put...

Double standards are a wonderful thing aren't they? Very disappointing.. I got a note from my SS last week that we were all on track for handover this coming Friday 13th and will have no issues getting completed by that day - I voiced my concerns and said I didn't think that everything could be don...
Every delay has a cascading effect. It might only push the handover back a day but if your excavator can't then do it t...

My dramas with Porter Davis continue. After being awarded costs by VCAT in the first week of March I needed to send this today. During the build I ensured that all payments were made within 2 working days of being due. The delay in payment is unnaceptable please advise payment has been made into my...
I think the invoice gives 7 days to pay, but yes it seems somewhat tardy on PDs behalf.

PCI booked for this Tuesday (April 10) and here are few pics showing the current status of the build. I dont think it is going to happen. Any of your houses this incomplete at PCI? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180408/25ae7ca6eca29341532092b226c49774.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201804...
That doesn't look anywhere near ready for PCI yet. Our house was finished at PCI essentially, it was about finding out w...

Hi all! We are currently building on land we purchased from an estate. Of course the estate comes with some design guidelines - ranging from house design guidelines (how many colours, what kind of materials, etc) to types of driveways allowed to design guidelines for the front yard and limitations ...
The length of the restrictions should be in your land contract. I think with ours for things like the fence at least we...
