Covering a void

Why chose a plan with voids at first place? They are a nightmare. Noise, yes. And they are not helping with heating/cooling efficiency. There probably is going to be full…

Which exterior colour to choose for upstairs cladding?

Initially in my head I was aiming for darker colours. After I saw this light grey, I really like it. I'm just worried that the actual finish look will be…

Planting Tree in Front of Home

Most councils have similar rules. Some of them even specify what pieces you need to plant. I wouldn't worry too much. Some are even happy if you use a proper…

Bathroom and ensuite layout suggestions

Maybe switch the positions of toilet and bath tub? So the toilet is not to see directly when you walk into the ensuite. And if you like, you can put…

Help with Floorplan

Master bedroom next to living areas is not ideal either. It can be noisy if people go to bed at different times. Master should be at the back in my…

Hi everyone,
Hope photos worked on here. Which one is better for the exterior cladding upstairs? Brick decided as in the photo. Window frames will be black.
Thanks for your opinions.

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…

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.

Carlisle Sheraton Journey

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…

1 year1 yearJason526Jason526 posted:

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.

1 year1 yearJason526Jason526 posted:

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.

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?
