Building with Wisdom Homes

I am going to be building a Majestic 40 and these are some of my upgrade costs (based on the signature package). I tried to limit my spend while still…

Capped water point unusual cost ($5000)

I convinced my builder to install fresh water points.
The bidet shop sent me a copy of the certification test that was done on the Coway BA13B model and I sent…

PM sent.
For the benefit of others reading this it was www.thebidetshop.com.au
Apparently there were safety regulations brought in a couple of years ago which placed tighter restrictions…

My builder tried this on with me. I spoke to the electronic bidet supplier and they provided me with documentation verifying that their product meets the relevant Australian standards and…

Yes, you will still need the rainwater point to comply with BASIX but have a seperate cold water point (fresh water) next to it at a cost of $210.
I tried…

You have to specifically request a cold water point to where the washing machine will be if you want one. This costs $210. You still need the rainwater point though…

Hi Becks81, we had the same issue, as we also requested for kitchen as displayed, for majestic plan. During kitchen consult, we were…

You could do that if you don't want to mess around with cutting gyprock and patching it up, but then you have to pay twice for the speaker install. At…

Reason why I say this is because:
1. Sentinel are not Home Theatre specialists. They just install cabling where you tell them to. No advice is provided on optimum speaker placement.
2.…

Hi Becks,
My suggestion to you is get the cabling done afterwards. Take pictures of the inside of the walls and ceilings before the gyprock goes up, then you should have…

Is anyone organising for speaker wiring to be installed during the build by your own preferred supplier?
Sentinel can do it for you but they are not home theatre specialists and…

I don't think there is any markup applied. As an example I was told $6XX to get the hidden Ilve rangehood (IVUM90X) Wisdom have on display. Winning advertise it for…

If you want to change any of the package inclusions you can choose something else from the Winning Appliances website and Wisdom will install it for you.

I like the pics posted of the PGH truffle bricks.
I was thinking of going for Espresso because I like dark bricks, but not sure whether it would go well with…

My contracted time is 44 weeks for a 40 square house. Don't understand why its so long, but I hope the actual build is quicker than that.

Has anyone selected the solar panels and Tesla battery storage instead of taking the $15k voucher?
Looks like a good deal but I would hope that you receive a consultation to…

Are you serious? I might have to stick with standard then.
Will probably do a little bit of render and stone cladding on the facade after handover.

Anyone here upgraded their bricks?
If I stick with standard I will go with Espresso from PGH, but I like the look of Apollo which is a semi-glazed brick.

Yes makes sense.
My intention is to bump up all my provisions (eg kitchen, tiling, electrical etc) to well in excess of what I am likely to spend, then get a…
