We paid for the refrig add-on already, which was 16k. I'm going to take this info back to my BC . Maybe the info was…

Agree with the above post.
Our overhang is 450mm because I'm tall and wanted more room.
It required the slab to be reinforced so was slightly more expensive.

In other news I got a quote from darbecca today. Was a lot more expensive than I thought....anyone use them / get further discounts in any way?

Sure enough, the deal is only for those on the new pricing and deposit from December last year, or $21k upgrade, which is retail, so not going to bother

Hehe, looks like it'll be a race - with you having a month's head start ;)

So, to expand on my previous post...silestone comes in two slab sizes, normal and jumbo. Of course, lagoon (the one we chose) only comes in normal size which is 3060…

Are one of your windows double glazed vs single glazed?
I know that double glazed windows go from sliding to awning type so the configuration is different....could be the reason?

We get $10k off if we start by March, so hopefully that gives us enough time!
