Building a pool (bypassing pool company)

Have you ever claimed against a builder? Not a very smooth process I can assure you. That’s if they haven’t claimed insolvency.
I get the risks everyone has pointed out…

Yeah maybe they do. But the reality is they are probably supervising a dozen builds and get to your site 1-2 hours per week. Whereas I may not be as…

I think you misunderstand. I will not be doing the actual work - the point is to coordinate all the sub contractors - it’s not as complex as building a…

After receiving a number of unreasonable quotes to build a pretty stock 7x3m concrete pool, I was wondering whether anyone has tried to walk the path of project managing…

Lower concrete slab to increase ceiling height

It's just with the lengthy build times, going to council to get DA is going to add to an already lengthy build process. im hearing up to 12 weeks turnaround…

There is nothing on any of the contract documents provided. I suspect it doesn't, but how would I find out for sure. It was a mid 70s/80s build I think.

The restriction I have is overall building height envelope. The higher I go the narrower the second floor will become. I am already at maximum setback without having to go…

Thanks for the advice. I do appreciate there are costs involved and I’m not sure what that would equate to. I have attached site drawings with where the split on…

The top floor is already at 2.54m so not much to do there. Bayside council really needs to relax some of the side setback provisions in their planning scheme.

Did you go with a full custom design or use one of their existing designs? I’ve gone with a standard plan and have a PSQ for the base plan that…

We've just started the process with TA and will follow. Concept drawings are about to be signed and I'm starring into the abyss of what is to come.

Advice please: Dual occ in Bayside, Vic

I was told to budget about 60K in site costs (inc demo) for a KDR. So take that plus the cost of subdivision.
Not sure what a pool would do…
