Thought so, thanks Manhattan52. Hope this doesn’t delay things too much. We also noticed a DA amendment item wasn’t on there either.

Do the BASIX variations (insulation/window glazing) need to appear in the DEP?
Any common mistakes or omissions to look out for in particular?

Confused. Based on the comments here, we didn’t tick yes to Sediment Control. Emailing CSR now.

Good to see how much space on top of the cabinets you now have access to for additional storage.

spk_homebuild look great!!! Must be pleased to be close to the end?

Great, this remote is what we will be getting but after finish off. I take it that it's a mountable remote which is separate to the garage opener?

On that note, can anyone who has just finished their build comment on what the garage opener looks like and how it works? Do I need to raise a variation…
