HI SaveH2O,
I want to ask you about a couple of quotes I've received from the builder.

Hi Glenn G,
I think Eden Brae has some upgrade packages where you can get air con included. Just be mindful of the upgrades, often you will need to spend more…

Building with Wisdom Homes

Thanks Manhattan52,
I am also leaning towards Falmec. Ducting and installation seem standard - I think Qasair will make the builder's head explode. It seems installation for Qasair is also…

Hi One/Manhattan52,
How do you like your Falmec? We are tossing between Falmec and Qasair, I am hesitate about using Qasair because the installation sounds troublesome for a project home builder.…

I don't have much experience with other project builders. Their business model might be similar but execution might be done with more finesse and courtesy. Many of them seem to…

I guess the downlights are ok. The $1848 doesn't include the fans, just wiring and installation. We will pay extra for the fans.
