Yep, took all the way to the boundary except for 200mm. They have a strict policy (at least with knockdown rebuilds) to go no closer than 200mm of the surveyed…

NBN point in your new house.

When I spoke with NBN they wouldn't give me a price nor an accurate estimate, but the indication was upwards of $5000 and possibly a couple months.
Did you go ahead…

In my case there will be as I won't accept aerial for the new house, but yeah, if they turn around and act like they don't know what I'm talking…

We're planning to build with PD in early 2019 (Hoffman Villa) and we're extending our garage, but by width not by the length. I have a feeling had we asked…

Thanks for the details, will look into some of those recommendations.
Your electrical pit for $3600, was that single phase or 3-phase power?

Hi brokenstick. A pit is for electrical power. My questions were for a gas connection. Do they also require a pit?

We were told this same thing in our tender in the past week. It was said in a semi-nasty way, and not that it can incur but that it WILL…

Did you get the refund and/or were you told off for having the demo people do it?

We have our tender appointment in a few days, and have also been presented with the same 3 options.
From what research we can find, all three are panned online, talk…

Thanks for the input.
Part of my frustration is around that VIC demolishers won't do a lot of that, especially the abolishment of electricity and gas supplies. It's all excluded. Some…

Side note, we're in Kingston council, and I've been told they're actually pretty good to deal with, especially for KDRs, they're quite supportive. Heh, here's hoping.
