On a lighter note, we are slowly getting closer to the build: awaiting hydraulics, finalising the last of our colours and selections and tentatively arranging demolition.
I wish these little details…

Thanks ASJ1981, interesting, so 50:50 split on tiling or not tiling first in 2006. I wonder what the industry standard is now?

We did too. The builder attached the wall hung vanities and cabinets to the studs through the tiles.
I am concerned about water getting through to thew gyprock from run off…

Dunk85, good question, someone along the way did tell us that we would discuss the fall of the alfresco and drainage with Landscaping. I've just asked my CSR this question…

I’m on a wet area crusade at present, does anyone have drains in their alfresco? Especially if you’ve extended your alfresco area?

CSR confirmed with construction manager that vanities are hung before tiling. I did not think this was an industry standard. Other thank saving on tiles, does anyone know why they…

I didn’t realise that the vanities were hung before tiling. This was not how our renovation was done. Are there any implications to waterproofing when done this way?

We haven’t started building yet but we’ve selected an induction cooktop, ovens in microwave tower and taken out the cooker.

I can’t navigate the site on my phone. It’s different to how I remember it. Does the facade on the website show the brick work in question?

What facade are you building,GLO?

I think you can source anything from the Beacon range.

Hey ASJ1981 thanks for sharing!! Do you mind if I ask which black cabinetry colour and finish you chose please?

Following with interest because we have the same requirements and had no idea about the markings.

It was in our tender in lieu of standard and we didn’t ask for it. What is standard termite protection anyway?
The cost in our tender is $550

Granit Guard was in our tender. We actually didn’t think about it.
It made sense when we looked into it plus it sounded cheaper than reticulated, given you don’t need…
