Thanks Blacktea2sugars. When you get a chance can you please upload a photo of your window? So I should ask them to caulk…

For the sliding doors, they have applied caulking from inside on all 4 sides. And for the top of the windows. Some of the windows in bathrooms have all 4…

Only the top part is caulked from inside the house. The below and sides are not caulked. Should all 4 sides be caulked? I can see gaps in the bottom…

When you say caulking, do you mean all 4 sides of the window? And outside the building or from inside the house? I could see only the top part being…

Nope. Nothing has been applied except the rendering. I found out the hard way. There is a small gap between the window frame and inside wall on one of our…

I went with ‘In the swim’, the same pool builder as Frank’s house. Yes I recommend them.

That’s what I thought about saving on the engineering cover. Alas, due to failed dig earlier and redesign/re-engineer the cost of failed dig was the same as the cost saved.…

We have moved in last Sunday. And the first thing to get done was our swimming pool. Prior to our house build we had water and cave ins and couldn’t…

I had asked our alfresco floor to be raised so that it is flush when paving tiles are laid. I was thinking you could go with only decking board if…

Can’t you just lay the planks on the alfresco concrete like tiles?

It’s not worth the headache I’ll tell you. The builder needs to take into account the recessed height and make sure the sliding doors are customised. For us, they did…

Your backyard looks great! Did you go with one single contractor for all of your landscape works or sub contract individually?

We didn’t and it’s funny that TA can make any variations they please but don’t compensate ‘us’. The only way out is to triple check everything before signing on the…

Nest needs a power cable and the others are battery operated. Rather get data cable and get a good system like Hikvision or Dahua. I agree the integration with google…
