The other emaar properties on the sheik zayed road also looked to be "very good quality" when it was being built, but listen to all the stories you here from people living there!!!! We will only be able to tell how good the construction is when people actually move there and hear what they have to say!!!

I hear Emirates Hills started out good before concrete and steel went up and they got so behind. Then it got to costly, Lakes, Meadows 1 & 2 are pretty good build quality and finish, I have seen myself. The rest are very poor, I am surprised that we didn't just have a latrine in the street and a cookhouse out back!!

Don't forget the well!!!
What you did say confirmed my suspicions though. The earlier developments weren't rushed for time such as The Lakes and first few Meadows and so more time could be spend on quality and so on. But at the rate they are building and with such little attention paid to quality maybe soon we will hear of entire houses falling down into the ground!!!!!!!!

Keep your charm flowing! Not sure about being flawless, don't think there is such a human being on earth and probably my husband would find a list of flaws for you. As for being lucky, I think he is and so am I.

Don't be unfair towards other wifes! Everyone cares, life just isn't that straight forward and everyone has their own beauty.

CP - just a little thought about Arabian Ranches - when Dubai World is finished it is going to change the neighbourhood quite dramatically.

I totally agree with TS. Same thing is Happning in Calgary. 1 acre of land close to calgary is 80K.
Does any body has any idea how much a ranch will cost?

dubaihammer is an unknown quantity at this point

We have bought at the ranches on phase 1. We will be amongst the first to move in at the end of December. We have managed to get in to our villa on a few occasions during construction to check on the quality, and to be frank, we have been disappointed by the carelessness of the workers. Many tiles have been smashed, and paint splashed about with gay abandon all over the kitchen units. Hopefully, all this will be rectified before we move in. If you would like to see photos, e-mail me and I will send some.
