Anyone have exposed aggregate driveway? Pics ? Also, how does the price compare to just coloured concrete?

We had gas installed this week. Not so sure about sewerage but my ss said they were waiting for weather to finish the complete external hydraulic works

Wow, what a great entertaining area. I'm so jealous :) Given the size, i think you could fit 4 fan's. (2 or 3) across the back…

Anna helped us as well and she's great but we were easy with our selections and knew what we wanted. You can ask for 2 quotes so they shouldn't charge…

Yes I think my situation was due to tiler error. They installed tiles before benchtops going in and so they had to be ripped out.
First pic is pearl grey and…

It's just a normal white gyprock ceiling with cornices. Don't have photo's but don't think you need them to visualise white gyprock ceiling. Square sets shouldn't cost you much. It's…

Similar experience with my sales consultant. I said I wanted the alfresco pulled out as much as possible. I didn't look closely enough on the plan and realised that I…

We increased our feature window to 2.3m and stacker doors to 2.3m high. Of course it would be awesome to have the windows and stacker doors go all the way…

This is on a Manhattan 39 designer facade, no balcony. My block is not 100% flat. My block slopes down from front to rear as well but not a huge…

No pci date as yet. They've been painting last few days so I think final painting is done. We are waiting on:

Yeap we added downlight to niche as well. Wood paneling would look nice but probably wouldn't be bothered to do all that once moved in. Looks fine as is.

I really like the feature it adds to my entry. We have a niche on the side as well and I think it looks really good and then with the…

With submission plans, are you allowed to have structural variations? If not, stacker door heights would be a structural change wouldn't they?
Just raising this because you wouldn't want to…

Hi Steve, I'll be honest. I don't think it's actually worth going signature. 50k is a substantial amount and when I tried to compare packages, I couldn't really see that…

It does. Just the included range is worth nothing. U choose their included range and there's no labour charge

Well if u choose an upgraded tile then it's most likely $35 or more so the allowance eats at the tile and u pay labour. The included tile is probably…

We had signature and upgraded all our bathroom tiles and it cost us about 14k extra. The $35 is tile allowance and with the included range, that includes labour. Upgrade…

Anyone looked at iseekblinds.com.au? Prices seem to be pretty good from the initial research I've done.
