Have you asked them to add it in for you? I can guarantee you won’t be the only one asking them :)

Hi mate, I can’t comment on your exact question, but I wouldn’t really be looking at buying anything without a subject to finance clause unless you have the funds already available.

Did you not get to have a meeting with the electrician on-site to confirm the placement of switches, lights, etc.? We did (we did not build with coral however). I would keep at it with your supervisor as you should have been informed about this.. especially considering where it is not placed vs wher...

Thanks for your replies. I have contacted the builder and they have said they have passed this onto their landscaper to advise if this will be an issue. Thanks Dan. I have already checked this as we were informed about the termite line and the role it plays :) luckily they have not covered it :)

Hi, Our neighbouring building has just completed their landscaping today. We are built to boundary. When I got home I’ve noticed they’ve put three trees up against our wall on the boundary side, they’re currently not very tall but I’m afraid they will grow and can cause foundation damage? Photos bel...

Hi, If it’s in your contract then yes it would fall under work not completed.

Hi mate, Why not get a quote to build the same home from the builder and a quote on the land and see if what you read about commissions is true?

Hi Tash, Congratulations on your desire to buy your own land and build. We recently did this and it’s the best thing ever! We were also first time purchasers but the process was super easy. Basically we just contacted the land sales office for the area we liked, found a specific block that we wanted...

how do they fix this now? does basecoat and topcoat stick to the wall? will it have to be roughed up back to basecoat plaster? I’m assuming it’ll need to be sanded back and repainted at the bare minimum. Otherwise, they will probably need to refinish it to a higher finish level. I guess time will t...

Thanks for the replies everyone. Much appreciated and very helpful as usual. It’s a shame that home owners are the only ones who get screwed with subpar work in the end as we pay substantial amounts for these homes.. if the builder wants to screw their trades down I don’t feel like that should be on...

That’s what I was thinking to myself 😂 I managed to get one of the white walls quite visible In a photo: https://i.ibb.co/RN9kqfK/8-AA30-F69-5558-4260-89-FA-EF8-F2-BCDD0-D6.jpg

Hi, Are visible plasterboard joins common after painting? We’ve been told by our builder that this is normal. We have majority of white walls with one room having monument walls, the joins are quite visible almost everywhere, especially in the room with the black walls. We personally hate it and do ...

The Alfresco area is approx 4.6m x 3.570m and the courtyard is approx 4.330m x 1.4m. No bigger than what we currently have with no expansion joint.. just unsure of standard practice, it looks horrible and very unusual, especially because they’ve used grey grout yet the tiles are almost white..

Hi, We have a outdoor alfresco and outdoor courtyard area which are both tiled. In both areas, I noticed they grouted the entire area apart from the middle lines, I thought this was odd but let it go as I knew they weren’t finished. Anyway.. almost ready for our PCI and I’ve noticed that both these ...

Actually here’s a photo of the kitchen at night for you so you can see what I mean about the darker colour. Again this is looking from the outside in and the inside of the glass is pretty dirty. https://i.ibb.co/r2RrP8w/F0-ECEBA3-900-F-42-E2-B98-F-C39-D85-B39747.jpg
