Building A New House
Feb 12, 2008 10:35 pm
we're going with waffle pods and a h class slab as recommended by the engineers who did the site & contour testing/report. The builder has confirmed that with waffle pods, the site cost is fixed as there is no situation of hitting rocks and having to blast/ cart away etc.
I have read up the pros & cons of waffle pods...and have a few friends who have them who are happy with them overall (Slight hairline cracks after 9 years)
Anyways, I just wanted to confirm if the fixed site cost are true with waffle pods or is there something i'm not aware of?
Another thing, can we please take a poll on who has gone with waffle pods instead of crumpets for their home
