Yup you're pretty much spot on. Our base price was $380k 3 years ago, and by the time we were happy with everything the bill was in the $650k range.…

Where abouts in QLD are you? I can share the mob that did most of our joinery post hand over. Wish we did even more post, would have saved us…

You'll love the triple garage then! It's probably the most used area in our house atm.
This next one is an investment home, so not quite ready to do another move…

You can do it all post handover. The security screen installer will remove the window restrictions while his installing. That's what happened at our house, and we didn't even ask…

Awning windows are also restricted when on 2nd floor with no security screens...

I think you're confusing fly screens with security screens.

Adding security screens will allow the windows to open fully.
