We have built the Daydream 32 and are looking at putting in ducted air conditioning. What brands and types of systems have people gone with?
Thanks 😊

Thanks for the tip.
$12000 is crazy. I can't believe how expensive Clipsal is. I don't understand why the sales consultants only suggest putting $3000 aside for electrical???

Thanks for the tip. That might be the way to go.

I think that's what we will end up spending too. Did you owner supply or just have Coral supply it all?
Oh well no point in having a beautiful house…

How did it go?
I ended up delaying making the appointment so many times that now they aren't taking any more appointments at the Varsity Office!

Also does it stain as easily as the standard cement grout?
I just realised what's the point in spending $5k extra…
