Solar question: we are going with panels but holding off on battery for now. Does anyone know how easily a battery can be installed at a later date (when it…

This is such a shame for you. Hope things move along from this point. If you don’t accept this current state does it change the liquidated damages status back into…

We are a few days off finishing this stage of bricks, then scaffolding goes up and bricks/frames/roof are completed.
Can anyone comment on the usual timeframe from lock up to…

Looking great!!! Good luck with PCI, so happy for you. Is Telstra line under your driveway?

Ours is just for the first floor and not for the street. I guess it’s not for privacy, more to protect the neighbours from dust/debris? And used in sandy areas

We didn't get a credit as such, I think ours wee considered upgrades (vanity/mirror combo) so I assumed the price was factored into the price.

Lovely door, Manhattan52! What is involved? Replace architrave? Or can the hinge holes just be restored and repainted?

No I meant for the front/entry door. We are actually getting one for the laundry/butler door but I think it will be open most of the time (just closed if…

They just look so nice...it's aesthetic more than anything. I don't think they are more practical or more functional.

I just noticed that our plans for the bathroom with a double bowl vanity shows 2 mirrors but our tender/end panel says “full width mirror”. This is what estimators would…

Good question, the tiled areas are probably the biggest job. I generally do my own (or ahem pay for one) before moving into any home, especially wardrobes/shelves/pantry etc. I’d be…

I’m having second thoughts about the number of PowerPoints we have in our electrical plan. Has anyone successfully added any during construction?
