Handover in a week

Very exciting and stressful times.
As per email, everything is being fixed and is going faster. Really hope they can sail through with finishings so that come handover we are right to get the keys.

Woohoo we have a date

We have been given the hand over date 7th dec which is exciting.
We have seen cornice fixed, bath corrected, splash back done, and tiles started in the bathroom.
Hoping things go full steam ahead to be ready in two weeks. Here's some pics that we managed to squeeze in whilst tiler was packing up.

6 months on

We have entered our 6 month of our build, with the finish line not quite in sight or stress free yet.
We have had a few things completed to our delight, such as front door colour, paint nearly finished, lights put in and kitchen.
We are expecting bench tops this week and splash back to be completed.
We have had a few errors that we had pointed out ages ago, still not corrected. I still have a feature niche hole instead of what they have in their display home. Holes in the mortar, bricks not right on the slab as well as no electrical cable in our front pillars so they told us the pillars would be knocked down to do. As well as incorrect cornices. That was a month ago and it hasn't been done.
They have neglected to tell us that our shower door can't open to get in because they have a vanity too close and a bath enclosing it in, not to plan. No idea how we will be having this problem corrected.
Really feeling depressed with the build, an regretting builder at this point. Here are some pics below:

Will we've finished by the end of November?

We have seen tiles completed, paint started and kitchen and vanities go in in this week. Wonder if it will be finished in 3 weeks as told 2 weeks ago.
The errors aren't fixed yet and there's a couple of new ones too.
We are loving our colour choices, everything is coming together nicely.
Hope to report so more positive news in the coming weeks.
