Looks like they have done the corners with mesh tap first, it will need a second coat and they should complete it then.
I'd be slightly concerned with the window in…

Not really sure they are better these days. It's just air mixed with water as it always has been.
It can work well if you experience dry heat. If you…

Metricon Liberty 45 (Turramurra)

Yeah you can hide it under the benchtops but not under an island waterfall.
I'm debating whether to get prefinished engineered or raw floorboards.
Prefinished is much cheaper overall but you don't…

Nice floors.
What type of timber you get? It looks like spotted gum?
It even looks to be installed under the island bench?

Replacing Hollow core with Solid core

You can use longer screws so it bites into the timber frame rather than just the mdf(?) door jamb.
Also use 3x ball bearing hinges so it will never require…

Nice progress Chris.
Is the garage separate from the house?

Building Queenscliff 416 with Fairhaven Homes

Awesome.
Did you arrange the building permit/engineer or did they?

Thanks, you recommend them?

Evaporative cooling vs Split system

A single 5kw system will do it easily.
Electricity consumption isn't much from my experience.

I'd like to know also as I must be doing it all wrong because evaporative doesn't help my house when it's humid and 35deg.

Where do you live?
Ever been in Melbourne on high 30s or 40 deg day?

As I said, I have both but evaporative doesn't work when you really need it.
Does it sound like I'm avocating evaporative?
As I have both, I'm in a better position…

Melb has humid summers and evaporative is next to useless in the peak of summer, when you really need it.
One eyed? I have both evaporative and split air conds in…

Roof tiles Boral or Austral

Whatever you get, get Terracotta tiles.
You'll thank me in 15 years.

Joker, are you in Melb?
If so can you please message me your air con guy's details?

That would annoy the crap out of me.
Make sure they repair any damages waterproofing when they pull off the tiles.

I suppose $7,500 isn't too bad if it wraps around to the left. They aren't cheap, hence why I'm not doing the whole upper storey cladding in it

Hi, is this the final facade?

Does the timber wrap around to the left hand side? Wow, $7,500 isn't cheap!
I like timber features, so much so I'm using it in my…

I'm sure it's done on a regular basis. You'll never know just by looking at it.
Get a structural engineer to see if it's safe to do so.
