Hey wingzee, did you manage to install your own appliances? I'm hoping to do the same as I'm doing an oven tower and the 900mm oven that comes free doesn't…

Liquidate Damges for builders

Clarendon is $100 per working day, so it will be the same as Eden Brae ($500 per week).

Mrs RS - what are some of the things you regret not doing at Colours?
I'm actually thinking of doing laundry cabinets, butler's pantry cabinets/storage, and wardrobes externally after handover.…

Cupboards Or Drawers?

Mind explaining why? I thought it was more the mechanics of installing the multi drawer system (like those blum or hafele ones) within the cupboard.

:lol: thanks ajedi2k. Will pop by the showroom and ask if they're willing to give me a quote based on the house plans for now!

Thanks for the recommendation ajedi2k! Do you have any photographs of the robes they made for you?
