Bryan & Petersen Build in Regional Victoria

You won’t go wrong with Bryan Peterson. We were so close to going with them but due to some things out of everyone’s control it didn’t happen, but I’d still…

What kind of fireplace is this?

Ring the agent you bought the house through and get them to contact the previous owner for peace of mind.

Boundary Fence

Yeah I agree but I’d still be querying the developer. They’ll probably still get out of it, buried in the fine print somewhere but can’t hurt to ask. Good luck.

Kitchen island.....waterfall or not?

That’s exactly right - if you like it and can afford it then do it. Which also goes for just about everything in life! If you sit around worrying something…

I actually like that people don’t do waterfall ends, especially 75mm thick ones, and I like even more if they stick to 3m long islands rather than 4 or 5m…

Go for it, hardly anyone has them due to cost, so can’t really see them dating much. Definitely look good on long island benches, as mentioned by Possums above, agree…

They usually go at the edge of one end of a sink or cooktop (if cooktop is on island). The statement a 4m island makes far outweighs any join.

100mm seems excessive, sure you don’t mean 10mm?

Seems like a classic case of big is better, 200 + changes/upgrades to the original floorplan, too much time choosing colours, stairs, lights etc. and then move into the house…

Maybe a blessing. There’s so many cool looking wallpapers these days, they would be a better option than committing to an actual brick wall and associated cost. Plus if you…

Buy land on high or low side of street?

5 acre block probably not much issue either side but given the choice I’d go high side. Smaller residential blocks (300m2 - 1000m2) definitely go higher side.
