Just wanted to say that we had our handover today
It's certainly been an interesting journey of ups and downs and one which will continue as we have so much to do now ourselves. We can't do as much as we would like, however, because of all the rain in Sydney lately. The gradient on our site, gentle as it is, means we have a mud slope at the front of the house. For practical reasons, we want a driveway and front steps in place asap and our concreter can't start until the rain stops and the site dries out for a few days.
I can't speak highly enough of our builder and the wonderful staff we've dealt with including Emma, Leslie and Steve. Of course, there have been problems but building is about how to solve those problems and this team have been great.
The HomeOne forum has been a great resource and I hope to revisit for information, a giggle, help and feedback in future.
Built a (highly) modified Allcastle Maxworth 38.7 in Sydney.
