had some delays at start with the council not know what was what, (totally out of JGKings hands as it was for the septic our plumber was providing)
once that cleared and they could get onsite it was smooth sailing

Is there much of a wait for the frame these days? We had a bit of a wait but saw others that had it worse after us.

we were told normally 7 week wait.
however some-one accidentally ordered our by mistake months early so was delivered a couple days after slab and installed the following week.
If you drive around shepparton there is just so many JG homes going up I can see why the delay.

I don't think so. The site supervisor didn't mention that when we met with him a couple of weeks ago.. he had ordered it, and said it will be quicker/easier if it comes out of the ?Tocumwal factory rather than Ballarat factory I think

7 weeks is absurd! It wasn't that long ago that they would have them delivered the week after slab and put up straight away. We were told 2 weeks with framers to start onsite the day after, this blew out to 3 weeks for delivery and a month before they started erecting. Took them 3 weeks to get it finished. I think we were right at the start of the factory not keeping up, it seemed to get much worse after us. I was hoping they had found a way to get back on track by now.

So after waiting the last week and half and driving past the slab, and no frame had arrived. I emailed SS yesterday and he said at this stage frame is booked for 30/11 😑😵
A couple of weeks ago he said we should be at lock up by end of Nov

Yes it's incredibly frustrating. We weren't warned either. If it wasn't for our last couple of SS speeding things up a bit we would still be nowhere near finished. I still wouldn't be surprised if we're not in by Christmas.
It pays not to think about the rent and the extra interest, the build is stressful enough .
