Hey there,
The Canterbury Grand looks amazing!
Were there any issues adding the window to the pantry or ceiling speakers?
Did you extend any walls/add doors anywhere?
I'm looking at the Dorchester 42, but…

Carlisle changes beyond what salesperson says is possible

I just saw the Colorbond option on the Spectra site, just not sure if it is a no-charge option or if it comes at a cost.
I understand that the salespeople…

We're thinking of doing another build - a double storey, possibly with Carlisle - and the salesperson has knocked us back on a couple of things we've asked about, such…

Not exactly - but at our colour appointment we just put our flooring/tiles/paint/etc. swatches all together and took some photos. Did a separate one for the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry and…

Building permit is in! Hopefully site start in the next week or two. Can't wait. :)

As above, but I would suggest a registered cabler - not all sparkies are registered cablers and don't necessarily know the details of data cabling requirements.

Thanks for the info.
We'll be running the rest of our cabling (data/coax/speaker/HDMI) after the sparky has rouged the electrics in, just before the plasterboard goes up. Much easier than after…

We have three data points (one behind each TV area, basically) - are these just terminated on a 3…

Yeah, they'll order the soil test straight away, and site start should be within a few weeks of settlement.

Finalised our electricals and signed the building contract today. Here's our (hopefully) final electrical plan.

We've asked for Clipsal pushbutton LED light switches throughout, which need to be priced up, and…
