What i did was send my bank statement to them to show I had funds available to cover the gap. Those 2 things were only thing required. Didn't sign anything…

If your bank is funding the build, then you'll need a letter from the bank to show that they have approved your loan and funds are available.

My SS just reverted back and said they're being air freighted instead to minimize delays so it should only be about 14 days so i'm assuming it should be done…

You might be hit with a nasty surprise when u get it back. Our hydraulics cost was 27k and sales consultant only put a 6k provisional allowance so was quite…

No i didn't because i didn't pay close attention enough to it on the plans and didn't realise that the WIR and walkway weren't tiled. I'm doing floorboards upstairs so…

Gas, water, electricity. We typically don't use gas heaters inside the house so we just relocated the one that's part of the package to the alfresco and added electrical for…

Given it's a small change, they may be willing to do it free of charge ?

You should have just asked timpelle to remove that aluminum shadowline. That's what we did. No extra cost for that. What does your vanity look like? We weren't able to…

There may be a slight chance. I had my appointments late August and got site fence and toilet 12th December. Slab went in after Xmas shutdown in Jan.

The cost will be similar if you go to large tile companies. Find a private tiler and cost will be heaps cheaper. My 90 x 90 are costing me about…

I went to Tile MegaMart but there's TFO and Tile Master are also options

Di Lorenzo are expensive but that's because they only sell Italian tiles so they're good quality. If you want nicer tiles at affordable price then get a credit for flooring…

Really ? My friends are building with another builder and I think it's 50-70 per day. $15 is nothing !
