Project update – March 2023

April 1, 2023 Henley have gone into liquidation… April Fool ! Alright, it was a poor joke… Before I start on the March update I want to touch on the terrible news yesterday that one of Henley’s competitors has gone into liquidation. As someone who is currently going through a build, I can only imagine […]

Project update – February 2023

March 3, 2023 From late January through most of February I was on holiday overseas, which probably explains why this update is late and I’ve been rather quiet on this website. Rest assured, there’s been plenty of activity on site. I was even fortunate enough to be contacted by a member of Henley’s in-house legal […]

Project update – January 2023

January 31, 2023 Almost all of the construction industry shut up shop for the Xmas break, building works on my site were no different.

Project update – September 2022

October 1, 2022 Following on from my bullish project update  for August, September has seen a disappointing slowdown in onsite activity. Early in the September the frame stage was completed, including the roof trusses. Like last month, Henley did not waste a minute getting the invoice for the frame stage progress payment into my email […]

Project update – August 2022

Project Update August

August 31, 2022 Construction has been under way for a little over 6 weeks now and I’m pleased to report that Henley are doing a great job of progressing my home. Melbourne has seen many more rain days in August than we’d usually receive, so on that basis, Henley have done particularly well. Base/slab Early […]
