Ain't it always the way?
Everyone walks around saying "we need the rain" - except those people who are having a home built.
Still, as we've said before on this forum - look at the end date. As long as you move in on time, that's the important thing.

We had our slab go down on wednesday last week. About a month overdue because of the rain - 10 acre blocks are great - except when the concrete truck can't get out into the middle of it to pour a slab because it's been raining and the truck will get bogged!

Yep, My sister and co are building in FNQ, and they have been swamped for over 8 months - just can't get anything done.
The dry season just hasn't arrived up there
Some in drought others still in the wet season

Own up.. who washed their car?
OK, I'll admit it, we moved house on the Saturday of the June long weekend....
Yep, we drowned in the torrential rain that day, but at least we didn't cop the floods like those unfortunate people up the NSW central coast.
Next time a drought needs breaking, we'll move house again!

The rain has not stopped where I am on the south coast.
It would be interesting to see how many homes are on hold here.
I feel sorry for people building at this stage, it will slow progress big time!
Good luck to you all!

Builder said that he was looking at having no cornices up the top in the laundry. Hence the question: will it look 'ugly'?
