Am I overreacting over fence cost?

Same.
I don’t know how people get in this situation in the first place.
For anyone reading - get quotes for a fence/s and contact the adjoining owner/s in writing,…

Stacker door installed wrong direction

If you’re in the position to be able to afford to bite the bullet and reinstall a new one, I think do that.
Try to negotiate with the builder, see…

Again going by mine that I’m looking at now, this I think possible but the tracks would be opposite to what they are supposed to be (maybe void warranty??) and…

I just looked at my stacker door, the way the tracks are would make this solution impossible and I’d assume the same for OP.

Decking new Alfresco

No way would I screw decking directly into a slab, the ensuing trapped moisture would ensure endless mould, dampness and eventually rotting deck.
I’ve never seen a deck without joists,…

Just Laid Matilda Turf atthis time of year

As long as you keep the water up to it as the supplier said, it will be ok.
Anytime of year is ok to lay turf, it’s just that Spring,…

Hi,
We did this exact same thing in our last build. You’ll need the alfresco slab low enough so the height of your joists and decking end up level with your…

Wouldn’t they need it to be at least 100mm lower than the house slab to allow 90mm joists and 10mm decking on top? Being too close to the ground has…

Building with Wisdom Homes - House change

Fair enough, hopefully doesn’t cost you too much if you do decide to change. Good luck 👍🏻

I suppose you could, I don’t know, maybe ring them and ask?

Thunderstorm by Selkirk has a brown tinge through it and would match in with Shale Grey too I’d think.

Lol, you won’t justify a response to someone who took the time to try and decipher a poorly worded post which you have now completely deleted. Oh the irony 😂

Pretty confusing what you’ve written/asked.
I think I’ve figured it out but sheesh some pretty vague stuff getting posted lately.

I edited my post above. They are just some of the variables.
Additionally you haven’t included location either.

Yeah anything is possible.
Should cost between $40k - $240k maybe even more.
You have given no information on block size, whether you will add an extra storey, heritage overlays…

Gap between brick work and frame

Go take a look at the last photo which you commented is unprofessional but acceptable. Again, wouldn’t want to be paying money to an architect who thinks this ok.

If you’re happy with that finish then I wouldn’t want to paying you big money to oversee my building project.
