Difference in advertisement and inclusions

Double Storey Suggestions

1. Would you consider three-storey!? Would be totally fetch!
2. Maybe consider a smaller house?
3. Apply to council for relaxations of boundaries....?
Good luck and all the best!

Tile company charging for different tile lay pattern

These are the kinds of decisions you will keep revisiting over and over. Even now, whilst our build is going, I'm still oggling other people's tiling and selections! It's also…

Actually everyone is quite right. Subway lay should probably be standard lay.
I agree with Cassie's point.
I guess another way to look at it... and whilst I have probably already made…

New prospective buyer

Hi Manu!
First of all kudos for the amazing savings effort!
Some thoughts to put out there.
1. Building a home and the decision-making involved is inherently emotional... which is unfortunate because it…

The main consideration for me would be - is how good is your tiler? - old adage says 'you get what you pay for' and whilst we will try to…

That's awesome! Rain does ruin the building mojo though. Lots of ppl with their builds stalled by the rain it seems!

Good luck with your build! We are now six weeks into the "building phase". I think once it's all done, the relief will come! (we sure hope it does!)
