Need feedback on our floor plan

I think your plan works well.
I would pull the door to the downstairs bathroom into the hallway. That way when you open the door it doesn't impact the room…

Thanks. We haven't had only one small issue since we moved in and that has been a wiggly door handle, but other than that, it has been great. We will…

Windowless powder room (with shower)

I would suggest to just replace the fan for a newer model.

Broken tiles on front verandah/driveway - cause/fix

I am no expert, but tend to agree that would have been caused from the driveway expanding. There should have been an expansion barrier between the tiles and the…

I think that if you choose the right colours, it won't date.

We added an extra power point with the sparky and was the same price as going through Clipsal.

House bedrooms are smaller than on plan.

If it's 5cm, then it would be 3.25m by 3.25m and room 2 would be 3.55 by 3.25. You have taken 50cm off the dimensions instead of 5cm. …

I think colours will date long before waterfall ends. So, probably more important choice is the colours you choose.

Boundary Fence

The problem is that the fence isn't suitable to the new estate but still perfectly suitable for the rural land. I would think that the owner of…

Our Coral home has the garage door height same as the front door, so without measuring, I would say 2.1m

Building with Metricon - Remove tiles for waterproofing insp

You can't really remove tiles for a waterproofing inspection as that would damage the waterproofing.
The builder should have had a waterproofing inspection done.
