Unfortunately, yes. The internal surfaces of the payload bay are covered with reflective stickers. I can live with the stickers of the...

Awesome set! The only thing to dislike is all the stickers. Wish they were printed on to the bricks.

Finally we decided to go with Grandeur Homes! Will probably update this thread if anything goes wrong. It might at least help someone else.
26/06/2021 - 21:19
Apparently, they are not that small. They have build neary 250 homes during this financial year. But, your point on reviews is spot on :)

The warranty is the one thing I worried though. When you say it's not worth it, did you mean they don't fulfill their obligations or...

Yeah, I thought the same and now having second thoughts about our kitchen/butler's configuration.
25/06/2021 - 11:37
What we have seen in displays are crazy, went to one yesterday with three kitchens with all the appliances! Our butler's is right next to...

I know this is somewhat of an odd thing to do. The reason for doing this is to prevent food smell from dispersing through out the house as...

We omitted Poter Davis from our short listed builders when we saw a floor tile crack in one of their displays.

Thank you very much for the first hand insights. I asked about this supply issue and the representative told me they are just under week...

I plan to visit the site regularly as well. Grandeur has a clause mentioning that any unauthorised access to the site will result in upto...

Warranty is the one thing that bothers me as well. Having said that, a proper inspection by and independent party should be able to catch...
25/06/2021 - 10:55
Thanks for the insights. Just out of curiosity, did you have any warranty claims after the builder went bankrupt? If so, what is the...
25/06/2021 - 10:53
Simply because those upgrades are expensive (at least around $20k) with and it'll be over our budget.

After reading the original comment by Traveller107, I did some research and this is something to be concerened about.
23/06/2021 - 22:54
Thank you, appreciate your input and I definitely agree on the decrease of build quality.
23/06/2021 - 22:51
Agreed. The next demo is early July and by then their 20% off promo is expired. Disappointed!
23/06/2021 - 21:35
Thanks, it looks way nicer. But adds to the energy bill though.
23/06/2021 - 15:57
Yeah agreed, hiring a lawyer is the safest move.
23/06/2021 - 15:57
35%?? :-o I can't even imagine the stress this will cause. This is not something I thought about. Thank you. As per their sales consultant...
23/06/2021 - 15:55
It's ducted. As far as I know, 7 years is the minimum and it's the industry standard. So, this is some relief. But will do more research on...

They do. But planning to have solar in the future. If I could, I'd even have a biogas plant. But everything is bloody expensive.
23/06/2021 - 15:49
TBH, I don't really know. Wife wanted it to reduce the spread of food smell. We only included one cooktop and it's in the butler's.
23/06/2021 - 15:46
Never thought of colourbond roof will look out of place, but this is not something I specifically looked at before. Thanks for pointing...
23/06/2021 - 15:43
Yeah, that's why I considered Grandeur. What I'm not sure about is whether that upgrade worth it compared to the risk of going with a small...
