You’ll find they’re not liable, they’ll have a clause saying that if they can’t see it, they’re not liable or something like that..

Question Skirting and flooring

Slab design - garage lower than ground level

Garages are traditionally always built one step lower than the house.
Why are you worried about flooding? Better that you only flood the garage than the whole house!!

Void and/or increased ceiling heights

Agree with Hillsbuild, I’m not sure there is any benefit having the walkways, either extend bedrooms out or increase width of void.

Also depends on budget.
Plenty of builders out there that will modify there plans, or some project builders do custom designs as well (most likely…

Many builders web sites have the capacity to narrow down…

Incorporate granny flat into new house

I believe that you must have a fire rated wall between main house and granny flat, regardless. Certainly the case in NSW

Void and/or increased ceiling heights

This void is about 2.5-3 meters wide, and still looks a little out of proportion, yours will be considerably smaller at the back. Is that the look you’re after?
