Fridge recess is 900mm standard - we increased to 1200 then realised that was massive and went down to 1000mm - plenty of room for a double door

No I think ours were $130 per square metre but we negotiated a better price. Total area was 71.20 square metres. Skirting was around $1600 so got it around $105…

Thanks all - direct stick seems to be the verdict, although all people at timber shops say the opposite - more profitable in labour perhaps to float them?
Anyway - bricks…
