Thanks again, Lunar.
That roughly corresponds to 37 weeks. So they put 7 weeks down to inclement weather? They only have 30 weeks to build, don't they? How many days…

Thanks, lunar. This is why it is all so confusing. The tender and 'smart' inclusions list (2013) clearly states - R3.0 to ceilings (except for Alfresco and garage). If…

Just wondering,
For those in the know, is it standard practice to place insulation batts in the joists separating ground floor from first floor. SS said that the insulation is complete…

Similar to us. The double Sliding LIN 1 doors to the media room will be stained walnut to match the front door.

Hi Guys,
Just thought I would update everyone on my structural issues with steel beams. I posted on this forum some time back that the steal beams over the leisure/kitchen…

Ok, Thanks, Pixi and Kishii. I will point this out when I get an inspector.

Hi Knowitall,
But do you think there is enough of the steel beam on the timber stud as per the pic I uploaded? It is only 6omm. It jsut doesnt seem…

Knowitall,
While the floorboards are designed to withstand rain for 3 months, we quickly found out, along with everyone else building a double storey in this rain, that the floor…

They even used contract clauses to make me pay a large…
