New build @ Mitchelton (QLD) Pool party :-)

Was playing with the lights tonight…

The MuzzMansion

Great selections - we loved dealing with Complete Tiles - so helpful!

Hi Miss Mia - thanks so much for the kind words. Yes the colour of the flooring is coffee. I guess it all depends on your colour palette, but we…

I really like the feature tile you have chosen for the niches!

Smart wiring...

If the gyprock hasn't gone it you should be ok - but get it organised ASAP.
If your builder allows external contractors on site, getting data points installed this way 'should'…

Building the first home

Congrats Mpp. Building (particularly your first home) can be a long, frustrating experience - but ultimately a very rewarding one.
As other have pointed out, we can't really comment on budget…

Building in Fernvale - Pic update!

That's great news about the tiler starting - although I was quite nervous about how our selections would end up looking (it was about 6 months between choosing and tiling).

Leanne's Baldivis Build - Deck Area Update

It certainly is frustrating - especially with new estates. Sometimes it takes forever for titling.
Hopefully the weather is kinder to you than it has been to us. At every…

Worth rendering front facade?

That's a little on the expensive side - to render our front facade and front wall cost us $2400. Although you will save yourself a lot of hassle getting it…

Thanks AmyMumma - I'll be thrilled when we actually get the keys.
Handover was meant to be today - we didn't think they'd meet it and guess what didn't happen. Hopefully…

alfresco to side or back

Orientation of you block is probably the key consideration for the design you choose. No point in having an alfresco that is open and spacious if you can't use it…

Our small build (NOR WA) - two years down

That's shocking customer service. I know we were up to about revision 'H' with our kitchen plan and we made changes 1 day prior to the cupboards being fabricated.
Yes you…

Happy to stand corrected, but I think this is specifically referring to detached garages - e.g. not part of the main building structure.

It's a funny space you've got there, however I would be hesitant to close it off with a cavity slider, mainly because both the laundry and powder both have doors…

Hey Millsy, WIR was organised through the cabinet makers who also did the kitchen and the bar. Imperial Kitchens out at Meadowbrook - highly recommend them.
