Oh nice. Getting credit while doing mods is the best thing you can ever get. LoL.
Good luck on your build. I'll be continuously following your thread.
Mine is slowed on purpose…

Nice. Did you have to reduce the size of the living/dining and the upstairs living when you moved the powder rm downstairs into the theatre?
Also, how much did Arden charge…

Love that alfresco idea. Now you're making me think about mine!

But tesla and solar is a standard inclusion in Arden (Aspire) - did they have to quote you separately on this?

Why would that be an issue? Do they put downpipes first before rendering?
Even if they did, they should be able to move them around while rendering and just put…

Is that the Beaumont? I think it's a cat9 or 10 flooring. Check with their sales consultant he should be able to tell you.

It's cheaper to do it youself. They said they don't really have intercoms and they just subcontract it to someone. Same goes for alarm/cctv.
I asked them to do a prewire…

I might ask them to run hdmi and power to the ceiling before contract. Should be easy enough to DIY your own projector.

We did double doors. Here's how ours added up:
2x INF5VG with translucent glazing - 3598
Gainsborough omni allure door handles and locks (one main, one dummy) - 580
Ours was varnish to…

No ezy reveals are different. Bifold windows fold down the middle and outwards on each panel, giving you a fully opened space.
We did a double hung instead, which opens vertically.…

I wanted to have it for my butlers pantry to create an opening to the alfresco but was advised by my SC against it due to cost.

Cat 4 frosty carrina in the kitchen,
Cat 2 organic white to the rest.
They look the same and cat 2 was 1392.

How much did Arden charge for strip lights? Planning on doing it myself but from what your friend is saying i might get arden to do it.

I have cat 4. 2576 for kitchen only.

53sq Does that include the triple garage?

We were 40k over budget if I remember correctly.
Our place is 43sq. Pretty much the standard votivo43. We have not increased overall house dimensions, except for the 1.5m garage extension.

I didn't like the bosch cooktop. Had a look through myself in E&S/harvey norman/good guys. I thought the knobs were plastic and reviews say the labels get removed easily.
Also, Arden…

Yeah we ditched the included ones and made some changes:

- built in rangehood changed to SMEG freestanding rangehood (forgot the model…

My top hints for tender:
1. Think about everything you need that has structural impact (walls, ceiling height, bulkheads, room sizes, etc.) This is your last chance to make changes. Add…

Nice idea. Although i can already see $$$ kaching $$$ in Arden's eyes.
Wonder if they also do barn door type sliding doors?

18 d18 dg33kerb0tg33kerb0t posted:

Sorry - caveat to this is that the opening will actually fit a standard door (720mm or 820mm wide) + door frame without changing the plaster.
Haven't checked the size that…

Yeah you should be able to. The price would depend on the type of door. If standard hinged, it should be ok. It'll be more expensive to have cavity sliding…

Euro wide board is cat 4. Around $4k-ish for the votivo43 (excluding rumpus). This is what we chose as well. Ours was chestnut oak.

Standard flooring are tiles and trendline laminate from ptf.

I think the standard ones are just floating handrails and plasterboard in the middle.
We asked for stainless steel ballustrades and it was an upgrade but we went with it. It…

I converted the rumpus into alfresco but kept the same size.
I will have half of the backyard 6m from the fence, and half 10m from the fence.
