Able to claim tax on Land Surveying?

Hi experts,
I conducted soil test and land surveying on my block last month for future knockdown & rebuild while I still have tenants live there.
Can I lodge in these expenses…

Get Site Survey & Soil Test done early?

Hi theshack,
A few builders I approached have provided rough building envelope of their plans. One of the builders whose plan I really like couldn't provide me a precise building siting…

Hi worldofmud,
Thanks for the advice. I have made an inquiry to a local geotech guys. Hope they get back to me next week and I'll have a chat with the…

Get Site Survey & Soil Test done early?

Hi experts on here,
I'm still in the process of comparing and choosing a builder for my knockdown & rebuild in metro Victoria. It's likely to be a volume builder.
My friend…

I don’t know how fast floor heating works. If you only turn it on during shower, it might not get warm by the time you finish shower. It’s probably more…

Personally I wouldn’t choose evaporate cooling, especially it’s less ideal for double storey house.

Good upgrade choices there. I am considering Carlisle too with their Montague 47. Do you mind me asking your contract price?

That's true. I'll keep that in mind. Thank you. Such a long process.
Back to my original question. If we are only looking at these three builders' floor plans, do you…

I think you are right. I like that idea. Now it will be up to the builder whether they can do the alteration and build it.

No easement on the west, easement is down the back. Only has left side neighbour in a single storey. Right side and back are park paths. No major trees either.
I'll…

I'd like to turn that area into a guest bedroom.

The latest photo I attached is not the original floor plan orientation. If you scroll back or even onto page one, you will see one where the garage is at…

I'm planning to remove the covered alfresco so it becomes a massive courtyard and hence open up the light into kitchen/living/dining. I don't think I'll be able to relocate much…

Maybe this is more ideal if I apply to change the crossover?

I have another idea! To use the floor plan from GJ, maybe I should apply to council to change my crossover/driveway to the other side. So I can build garage…

Given it's a KDR, crossover and garage will need to be at NE corner, and living will probably stay down the back at south. I get the concept of all…

Yes. It will be a knockdown and rebuild.

I have re attached the other two floor plans with the right orientation and driveway location. Do you reckon these two are better?

Hi alymei,
I see. There are only a few extreme hot days in Melbourne a year. During normal seasons, isn't it a good idea to have the alfresco to the west…

To put this plan on my block, this is how it will look. Isn't having windows on the west side the whole point, to allow light into living area? I…

This is actually how that plan would sit. Everything you said there would actually be the opposite direction?

Thanks ddarroch.
At this stage, I'm slightly leaning towards GJ's C shape plan. Most used Master Bedroom is at southern side. Less used minor beds are at northern front. If I…
