Amendments after building contract signing

It sounds like they have already told you it's not possible? Have Burbank told you the variation cost?

Dowell Thermaline - any good?

Wow. I didn't realise it would cost so much to upgrade! Thank you for sharing @Callifo it is really useful to have a rough guide when making these choices.

Practical colour choices

Just looking for what colour choices are practical for flooring, paint, benches and so on.
Do you find your colours are better for cleaning and hiding scratches?

Hi Darb74,
Very insightful and experienced advice, thank you!
That's great that you could install the Airomatic yourself. Our builder seems to think it will cost 1200 with installation. Ha.
