Yep. I was quoted almost $4.5k for glass splashback through YHK. I know I can get it done for less than half that. so yes I'm doing it post handover.…

Hi

plans get lodged after your colour appointment. council needs to know your external colour choices and render/facade features. but this is the final chance to change your external look.

Email directly to your electrical consultant, she will advise you of their admin fee anyways. best if you take the current electrical plan and mark extra lighting and power points…

If you haven't started electrical work on site then you can.
You however need to pay a $250 admin fee + extra for new stuff you add. Fee is going…
