Long time no post .....

Well I just realised it's been almost a month since my last post .... lots has happened ...

Driveway was laid and before I got a chance to see it some stupid dog run across 3 out of the 4 sections leaving a trail of pawprints behind. EBH seem to have some difficulties fixing this and at the moment it looks like S&*^!!!

On Wed 9th we had our PCI, then a few days later we arranged an Independent building Inspection, even though I was told by our SS that we were wasting our money ... the report we received back seemed to prove otherwise ... 10 pages of defects.

Most of the defects are minor, but there are few more significant things, like obviously the above mentioned driveway, a section of the bricks overhanging the slab, a downlight positioned way too close to a gas line in the roof, our reticulated termite system being exposed.

After our PCI we were told handover should be booked within 2 - 3 weeks depending on the findings of the Tyrells inspection EBH arranges .... we are 1.5 weeks after PCI and still no word yet on handover, so watch this space!


  1. Hi Mel and Rich!!!

    I know it has been such a long time but I was useless at this blogging business so I did not bother. I tried so many times to send a post but it would ask for a verification and no matter how many times I tried, it never accepted it so i gave up! Until my friend help me get back in. But i always have a squizz at your post and noticed it had been a long while since your last and I was curious to know if all was still running smoothly....WOW!!! I know what you mean about the concrete at the front will they fixed this up? Every time we have been to visit our home I have popped up to see if you guys are around so we could meet and I have no such luck
    Everything looks great at your place, your home is beautiful and I'm so happy to hear that it won't be long til your in your Saville..So sorry to hear about the 10 pages of defects..S*#T!!!! What is EBH going to do about it?
    I wanted to ask you who you hired to do your inspection and if you were happy with their work.
    Mel I would love to have a chat with you in person or over the ph..Do you go to the site still? Are you there on weekends?
    My email is if you would like to email me and that way I will have your email and I can write to you...Hope all is rectified promptly for you so you can finally move in and become Spring Farmers hehehe :)
    Hope to hear from you soon....
    your neighbours also building at Spring Farm C&G

  2. so you found Tyrells were a good idea and a good service to use? i plan to use them too so your view is useful

    congratulations though that you are so close to the finish!

  3. EBH uses Tyrells, we also booked our own Independent Inspection - A company called Safe House.

  4. hi mel and rich,
    if you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for Safe house inspection? We are scheduled to do our PCI on 23/07 and just don't know what to expect and so would also want to get an independent inspection.

  5. Hi Ceejaypeejay,

    Safe house charged around $400 for our inspection.

    Good luck with your PCI!
