Black tapware for a rental property

They look good but the powder coat does chip. They also show dust more.

New Pool Cartridge or in-ground filtration

Go speak with some pool shops and get their opinions. Not the pool builder. Pool shops service thousands of different types of pools a year. If anyone has a qualified…

New Pool Cartridge or in-ground filtration

Cartridges are generally found on older pools. Sand filters are more common these days. As for cleaning the filter itself - a sand filter doesn’t need cleaning per say. Only…

Laminate Flooring - New Build

Agree, scotia (quad) isn’t a good look.
To my knowledge the only way to avoid scotia is to do skirtings after. Raising skirts 8mm will never be precise and if…

Side paths

What saveH2O says is bang on.
Priority 1 especially with reactive soil is protect your slab. A path that slopes away from the house with good drainage should be your…

Cremorne 35 with Eden Brae

No problem.
Absolutely they make most their money at the interior stage of the house. And probably why there isn’t too many project builders, if any who are happy to…

Hampton style house

Hate to be the bad news fairy but I think you’ll struggle to build any 2 story home under that budget. Very well a Hampton’s. Double that budget and you’ll…

Who else is building Thorndon Facade with EdenBrae (Forsyth)

Have you asked Eden brae to share you addresses of homes with the facade. They did for us.

I’d be still thinking 100k even with your upgraded package. It gets away from you really quickly and what you estimate an upgrade will cost you, builders charge more.…

Refinishing / cleaning of surface of pool

Looks like it’s was a marble sheen finish and yes this only has a life expectancy of 10 years. We had a similar finish and when you were in the…

It will also impact BASIX. So you’ll need to resubmit that too.

Whirly bird or solar roof ventilation

I had an extraction fan (non solar) in my old house and air was the best $400 I spent. I had the thermostat set to 28°.
Whirly birds for me…

Eden Brae we’re great. Thorough and very professional. My suggestion would be try to get as many discounts, thrown in for free items as you can at the tender stage.…

Anyone know model of this 1950's Westinghouse Wall Oven?

Model number could be on the back if you slide it out of the cabinetry. But 1950’s... probably time to cut your losses and upgrade.

Absolutely it should be credited back

Cover for pool during build

Depends how close it is to the build. Some builders insist on hard trafficable cover.
Will the filter be running during the build. Pools go green very quickly and depending…

Bathroom painting costs 🎨

Hardest part is prepping that surface. It doesn’t look good. And ensuring it doesn’t happen again. Painting is easy.

That's just a water outlet valve (should you need to empty or service your tank). Your laundry and garden taps should be plumbed in likely via underground plumbing depending on…

I am pretty sure you have to have at least 1x external tap connected to your rainwater tank. It may even be two. This is generally standard inclusions as well.

Thanks Bighouse
Builder is doing the plumbing (including water tanks), I need to do the basin wall which restricts surface water flow.

Hi,
Long time lurker, first time poster.
I'm in final approval stages of building with a project builder on a knockdown and rebuild. I've just received my Hydraulic Plans and now need…

Samples I suppose. But I dont expect a showroom of stairs.

Every upgrade you do after handover will likely be cheaper as you’re not paying 20% builders markup.
Get quotes now. You have your plans so other suppliers certainly can quote…
