Master Suite size

Our master is 4x4 which is fine.
I think 5.5 is too wide.
It might be more helpful to show the entire plan though to make a better assessment

I think the WIR is too small. My ensuite is 4x2 and is a nice size. Our WIR is 3x2 and is awesome

Pantry Door Installation

I can't see any photos - but we never close the WIP door. If you missed it initially, I wouldn't think it is worth the money.

You should have given notice to the owner, if that was a developer then to them. Too late now though

No, not in qld anyway. You had to have given him 30 days notice which you didnt do

Jack and jill bathrooms - what are your thoughts?

How big is the study? For it to count as a bedroom, I think it needs a wardrobe. I also wouldnt do csd if you want it considered a bedroom

Vacant land with existing fencing - do we need to pay?

No, they'd need to have given notice prior to fencing. They could have pursued the developer as owner when fenced. (In QLD at least)
