@SuzK Welcome to the forum! There are so many considerations building a new home. Take it slowly and carefully. I went with the basic interior tile package on my recent build which looks fine, not cheap at all. These were Chinese made tiles imported by National Tiles Company. Surfaces such as tiles...

Quick question for you all that have past the brick stage... was your site an absolute mess through this stage? I am guessing it's just the stage we are up to but it seems so messy at the moment starting to worry if they can get it clean again. Our bricks were an absolute mess and still are after 1...

@Ambassador36 check if there is brick mortar stuck to the window glass. This can etch the glass surfaces and powder coated window frames and these will need to be replaced before practical completion. If there is excess mortar stuck to the bricks this will need to be cleaned of with a hydrochloric ...
Yes very good point Norfolk! I will monitor the windows conditions on my next inspection and also ask Houspect to ensur...

@Ambassador36 ensure your pre lining inspection checks for the wall and ceiling frame straightness in every room before the plasterboard is fixed. Based on my recent Metricon experience, the plasterboard will probably be fixed very quickly by a team of unskilled workers here on holiday or education...

Wisdom Landscape Voucher What are people using their free(?) voucher for?? Tough choice what to do eh, the quotes so far seem rather expensive compared to other landscapers. If their cost was just a tad more than the market, they would have much more business. I’m considering to do one side of my f...
