I guess they shouldn't have built so close to their boundary if they wanted to stay away from neighbours... no reason you have to, just to appease them!
I say good on you - you've picked the plan and orientation to get the most out of your block.
Btw, great progress and looking forward to seeing the slab and frame!

Agree with KT, place your house on the block where it works for you, particularly when site costs, retaining walls, your views etc all need to be taken into consideration.

How exciting! That's the bonus about building around existing homes - you can position your home to suit what's already there! I think it's terrible they've even mentioned it to you.
Are they pouring tomorrow?

Yes pouring tomorrow - so exciting!
I'm actually not opposed to them disliking the position but the matter in which they verbalized it really was frustrating. We went to ask if we could run a hose as we are wwaiting for the water meter still and he had a go at me
I should have told them 'just wait until the second storey goes up...'

Neighbours have been at it again, now a whs complaint as a tradie did a wee in the paddock... the toilet people haven't been yet but are scheduled for Wed- builder facing a $3600 fine.
Frames will be stood tomorrow and trusses will arrive.
I cant wait for the house to be wrapped to obscure the neighbours view of the trades.

Oh no. Surely the first point of contact would be to the builder rather than putting in a complaint. Hopefully you don't have too many more dramas with them. Exciting about the frames though!
