Builder changes post-DA approval?

Not interior changes, quite substantial structural changes (house was moved metres away and house was made a split level.)

Has anyone else's builder made structural changes after DA approval was provided AND a construction certificate issued?
Our builder has, creating a new house design plan to reduce risks caused by…

Stunning. Love your facade! Do you have white shutters or white blinds?

Love the Woodland Grey here. It's got the same bold kick of Monument but softer.

Agree with the other comments, I think the black stands out without being too stark as it matches the window frames.
Love how it looks with the wood too.

Monument or Surfmist window frame colour?

I could have posted this thread myself!
We're building soon and just had colour selections and the only thing I wasn't sure about was the window frames. We knew we'd have…

That is beautiful! Exactly what we were hoping to get originally but I'm not sure if our house design just didn't lend itself to all of the flat angles, but…

I love the dark brick with the wooden accents, they're both two things that we'd love to include.
You've got such a great contrast between the light and the dark…

That's actually a really smart choice, I hadn't thought of that option. I imagine it would also be a low cost option too (both during build and in ongoing maintenance.)…

Love the wooden accents and mix of dark and light colours! Thank you :)

Love the after photos! Simple and modern but classic. Can I ask what tiles you used on the walls and where you got your vanity unit?

Hi Jennifer,
We're going with mirrored sliding wardrobe doors as thought the plain doors would be a little too.....plain? Like you say the mirrored doors open up a space. Did you…

This is the facade that we fell in love with originally, the Bellriver Sanctuary, however it would've cost nearly $100k to have it on the floor plan we decided on…

Beautiful, Vanilla! Love the black and white contrast. Can I ask what type of flooring you've used?

But yes, great all rounder trees. Heat and drought tolerant so ideal for QLD weather.

Thanks Corallake, that’s very helpful.
House will be semi-rural so the driveway will be quite long which is why we’re considering different options. Regardless of which option we go with…

For those looking after their own driveway what did you end up going with - plain concrete, aggregate, stencilling etc.?
Any tips or things to avoid like the plague?
