Hi Michelle
Update: I have now applied Vivid White (Semi-Gloss) on some doors and trim, massive improvement, thank you! I'm just not sure if Semi-Gloss will be fine for the handrail…

Around $580K with a reasonably high level of fitout. Does not include driveway, landscaping, external floor tiling. However I could have easily spent more on fitout.

Should I raise ceiling height from 2590mm to 2740mm?

It can also depend on the builder in regard to cost feasibility. With my last property (209sqm) the builder had 2400 standard, 2550 for around $5500 and 2700 for around…

You would need to read the building agreement to see what was exactly agreed. Just for reference, I had 5 truckloads (65 ton) of clean fill delivered to site before…

100% do it, just make sure you get the windows made that extra 300mm taller as well along with 2400mm high on sliding/bi-fold doors (in lieu of 2100 high). Preferably…

Hi Holly, the internal wall colour is Surfmist. Yes, the same colour that looks off white on external surfaces. If you are not convinced, grab a sample pot and see…

I said to Clarendon to pretty much copy the internal colours of that display. :-)

With the internal wall colour we actually went with Surfmist with white skirting/doors/architraves. It looks completely different when used internally. Example in a display home: https://www.clarendon.com.au/uploads/im…
