Caesertstone Oyster Stone

Thanks again! Really appreciate it. I still haven't decided what I'm going to do.

Thanks so much for sharing this. Looks like lighting will affect the shading of the grey. I'm completely ok with a darker stone look in my bathrooms, but not sure…

Yes, I will be doing timber fences on all sides and painting them a nicer shade of colour.
The most frustrating thing is that we have a zero BAL rating,…

My understanding is it has to be 12.5 BAL rating or above. The council will stipulate the fencing requirements based on your BAL rating in the notice of determination.

Hi Nathan,
That would be fantastic! I really like it, but cannot for the life of me find accurate images of it installed.
I would so very much appreciate it!

Hi!
I am considering putting Caeserstone's oyster 4030 stone in our kitchen.
I've found it really difficult to find consistent images of this. Some show a very dark grey, others…

It's also my understanding that there is no interim OC anymore.

I got some clarity on this, finally! Dahua Group being the actual developers and wanting to market their development a particular way stipulated guidelines for all residents in the New…

I re-checked our notice of determination and it said the public facing side must not have metal fencing, but in another area it says no metal fencing at all. :S…

I called my Solicitor and they have said the contract clearly stipulates timber and re sent the check list. They can only contact the person noted by NZ89 AFTER I've…

Haha yes, definitely would be nicer in my pockets! Thank you, I'll give them a call on Monday to get some clarity.
From my understanding, timber is cheaper but I much…

Thanks so much. I'll give this a go. Dahua are holding the $1k, so it does make sense that we'd have to be compliant to their guidelines but I also…

I went to the New Breeze office today. The guidelines as stipulated during settlement stipp apply, in fact now they are more detailed.
There's a form you fill in once…

They already gave me my $1,000 back even before complying with their standards as outlined in guidelines. I can give you the name of the contact person if you want…

You can do whatever you like, but according to Dahua Group guidelines, it should be timber unless your lot has a high BAL rating. Mine doesn't. If i dont do…

Hi Everyone,
Can anyone recommend a good fencing company?
Also, what should I expect to pay per square metre roughly? I've always gone for colorbond but this time we are required to…

Same here. 6 weeks even with changes requested.

You need to check with petition requirements with the Council. Last I recall, they need signatures on paper and a few other rules.

The council rates are based on the size/value of your land. The larger the block, the more your rates will cost.
But this includes all council services; bin service, council…

I think that's really reasonable, comparatively speaking.

They typically advise 6 to 8 weeks, but depending on your application it can take longer (or less in some cases). We submitted ours in mid September and had it…

Each tree is planted x metres apart. So it's fortunate if yours falls where it should and works with your plans. Ours unfortunately can't be replanted and we can't replace…

No, they try to place them as best as possible but they can't predict the design of the house.
Before, the council used to arrange the removal and re-planting of…

Beautiful! I'm on Ray Simpson and haven't seen any flowering trees, but I'll also likely need to remove the tree from the front of my house :(

If we're still within the 90 day period, get a post build defect warranty inspection done. It will support your situation further.

Hi Guys,
Did any of you arrange the Sydney Water approval yourself? Did you need to refer to a Water Services Coordinator?

Thank you . I wonder if I will be charged the same.

Council applies inflation every year.
I believe Bardia rates is the highest in the Campbelltown region, largely due to the landscaping, footpaths and othe maintenance.
Ed Park residents are charged less, but…
