I will soon be joining the 'bank owned' home building project so thought I'd jump on and say hi and look forward to chatting to people about what is ahead of me.
Building in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne with Porter Davis. Currently waiting for our land to be released from the Titles Office (which has so far been pushed out 4 times). Very frustrating given everything is ready to go but nothing can be done about it but be patient.
My nerves are a little bit more 'freyed' after reading the forum discussion on 'bad things about building'. but I'm going to be optimistic and hope that we have very few problems (I'd be an idiot to think there would be none!!!).
Anyway .. I'm looking forward to expert and not so expert opinions on all things housey .. including gardening when it comes time. Definitely not born with the green thumb gene (very annoyed that my mother didn't show me all of the girly things I was supposed to know about!!).
Looks like a great site people so well done to those that have input.
