Hi Madison 40, interesting that you went with single pane glass windows for the living room...really like it!. Our kitchen and stairs are now installed. Scaffolding will come down shortly,…

Pendant lights & downlights to ground floor of 2 storey home

Do you have photos of your ceiling battens / floor joists to the top floor? Do you have insulation in the ceiling?
If they are solid, it's going to make running…

Lighting recommendations in Sydney

Yep, but I would expect importers are available in Sydney as well!

Fat shack for vintage and industrial lights if that is the style you're looking for.
I'm planning on importing lighting from Feiss, which has a huge collection of lights, through Richmond…

Hi guys, we are at day 56-58, and Hebel has been done on the bottom floor, going on the top floor next week, and plaster on Tuesday.

I really wish we had a different electrical supplier. I wanted a conduit put in so I could run additional lines after the build, but they don't do it.

RE wiring a few posts up. I paid for a rack with patch panel, so I'm expecting that all 23 (!!!) of my cables are patched in.
I agree though.if…

Hi Bruce,
I upgraded my paint to wattyl IQ and not the "professional" crap that they typically use , which is watered down for easy spraying. Had it done pre tender,…

Hi Mike, check the contract. By memory, the wording fixing, lockup etc ... Includes a percentage of the build to be completed (65% and 85%), which means they can't /…

Yep I've asked for one. Let's see how it goes.
Frame is almost complete, and the bottom Windows and sliders have been installed already!

Hi Mike...Can you clarify exactly what you asked for? Just a power point provision, or something specific...or does Argus have doorbell options?
I realised that I missed it altogether.
I'm trying to…

Did you pre wire anything for a door bell, or look at options around integrating it with the tuxedo touch?

Popped in on Saturday to find a young bloke going at it finishing the bottom floor. He thinks the top floor framing will be done by next week end. Is…

Hi guys,

Aah ok, fair enough...interesting offering, I see that they have that on their website...cheaper comes with less service..They should have made that clear to you up front :/

Well that's the problem I'm trying to call out. You should be credited for A , if you replace A with B.
It is also in the wording. For my tile…
