Painting has begun! They prepped the house last week, and he said hes due to finish on Thursday. Meet him on site yesterday morning and we are getting him to paint the bathroom walls white instead of the regular light grey we chose for the rest of the house. One less thing we have to do after hando...

Is anybody here with ANZ as their lender? I’m nervous today as our valuation is booked in for 10:30am and our landscaping hasn’t been done yet... Valeco didn’t want to complete until the day before handover as they would have to water the gardens and turf, but we specifically said we were happy to w...

It seems like you've had a really smooth build... which tells me you probably don't need one. i wish we had the same experience, that's why we organise...

Also I have only just noticed, you are building the coral home that we wanted to build in the beginning, but decided not to go with coral! I love the Avoca 23 and can’t wait to see how it all turns out for you!
