Houses built so close together that they’re touching!
Many of our South Brisbane and Logan followers may have seen the above photo circulating recently in the media. For those who haven’t seen this story, changes needed to be made to the placement of the garage to fit the building plans onto the available land. Miscommunication between the builder and their client led to this part of the house being built so close to the neighbouring property, that the gutters were touching.
While this story made big news, the reality is it’s not an uncommon occurrence, especially in inner-city suburbs. This is a classic example of a builder changing plans without the homeowner’s approval and leaving them with a logistical nightmare. Let’s face it, many of us have great neighbours, but you don’t want to be so close you can exchange cups of sugar through the kitchen window!
Throughout the building process, we take several steps to protect your investment from disaster.
With you every step of the way
We work with you throughout the process guiding and coordinating your meetings with the appropriate suppliers and contractors to ensure your needs and wants are communicated to all stakeholders.
Inspect, Inspect, Inspect
When all works are completed, we do a final walk-through inspection to ensure you are happy with all aspects of your home. We also arrange for any required third-party inspections to be undertaken.
Our Ongoing Commitment
We maintain a good relationship with our client’s post-construction making us easy to approach and contactable so if any warranties issues arise, we can sort it out straight away. As we stand by the quality of our homes and the high standard of our workmanship, we cover your home by a six-year structural warranty and a twelve month maintenance period.
Finally, everything goes into writing! Putting all details of the project on paper is the best way to protect our valued clients.
