Do the right thing Metricon; close your display centres now

They could create a virtual tour of all the displays and just have the sales office open.

I would think A would make more sense as then you can put in any type of lounge you like.

I think your light plan looks good.

Just make sure you check with the builder that they will allow you access to the site during the build.
Most won't.

Defect in Caesarstone Bench Top

We have Ice Snow benchtops and there is a couple of different colour stones in it (not red).
I don't think they would classify it as a flaw though.

That's good. Our neighbour built the Noosa 23 (no changes to standard floor plan) and it looks great. It looks beautiful.

Full house rendering with builder vs post handover

If you go with your builder then it will be covered until your house warranty. If you go after handover, it won't.
Also, that sounds like a good price.

I suppose it depends on which council you live in as ours says that you must leave 2m from the kerb without planting to allow pedestrian access.

Check with your local council guidelines before you cover the footpath with plants. Most councils require that pedestrians can walk on the footpath unobstructed.

We used Burnished Wood (Matt finish) and White (Silk finish) with Ice Snow Caesarstone for our kitchen.

I would have an outward swinging door or a cavity slider.
That way it doesn't take up any space within the room
