We have to put extra steps from the garage into the house. Our alfresco will now be over 1m off the ground, hopefully we can use the spoil from the water tank to fix this up, and our front porch may be a little high too. We will deal with these issues once the house is partially complete to see what would look best.
Another funny thing on Friday was the builder said that they had forgotten to include the cost of the colorbond in our price. I looked through our documents and our signed specification and our signed plans include colorbond roofing. I also double checked our contract documents and could find no loophole that the builder could use to charge us more. I sent an email explaining this asking for return receipt, however I have not received anything yet. I will send a snail mail and fax copy of this and all other docs I have sent to ensure that these sort of issues are properly covered.
