I am in middle of contract negotiation for construction in Geelong. Builder says he cannot guarantee the tiles and finishes as imports from China have frozen. Says about a dozen builds at lock up are having issues and these are common across market - west melbourne and geelong. He was worried that if the status continues for a fortnight more, construction will be seriously impacted. I am unsure if he is bluffing. But if he is right I might hold off the build. Any similar stories ?
