Renovate?

Currently own a three bedroom home, one living area, 360m2 block (built in 2018/19). We have been considering building a second story, which would turn the house into a four…

Think builder is going broke

So is official, the builder has gone into administration.
As we only have a frame and a roof, is there anything we will need to secure? Do you also think it's…

That was very helpful information, thank you! Guess we have to hope they claim insolvency and don't keep playing around.

Neither of those. I'm in SA. They're called Evoque. Haven't said anything to us, it's just the signs we're getting.

Hi all,
We are building in a new development of about 20 houses. Since our build started in October it has been going really slowly. Our frame and roof were up…

Ha! Thanks. At least you have a bit more depth :)

So our backyard is going to be 19m by 3.5m. Small, right?
I was wondering if you have any ideas as to how we can maximise this space? If you have…

Induction cooktop and ducted airconditioning

Oh, there you go! How much extra were they trying to charge you for it?
We followed up with our builder today and apparently they're trying to work out a way…

Yes, the air conditioning is included, so sounds like some misjudgment on their behalf. We're wondering if maybe they haven't provided enough electricity to the development as a whole. Anyway,…

That's the other thing. As we weren't getting a gas point in the kitchen, they offered to move it to the alfresco for a bbq. Don't know whether they'll expect…

5 years5 yearsjezzarosejezzarose posted:

We're definitely planning to argue the point. I don't suppose the fact that we are part of a development would make a difference?

5 years5 yearsjezzarosejezzarose posted:

Let me know if you have any issues!

5 years5 yearsjezzarosejezzarose posted:
Induction cooktop and ducted airconditioning

Considering ours is a small house (three bedrooms and open plan), you wouldn't think we'd need a huge amount of power?

5 years5 yearsjezzarosejezzarose posted:

It is single phase power. I assume this will make a difference?

5 years5 yearsjezzarosejezzarose posted:
Induction cooktop and ducted airconditioning

So we signed our contract a number of months ago. As part of this we upgraded our included gas cooktop to induction.
Now, as they are about to start the build,…

We're thinking about hiring a building inspector, and was wondering if anyone can recommend a good one in Adelaide?
Also some guidance…

Thanks AJW, your house looks great! In that case, are you happy with the Wallaby or would you have chosen something else? Do you find the bricks make the house…

Would like timber, but money restrictions will probably force us towards painted.

That does look good! Thank you :) just hope dark bricks won't get too hot!

Probably a dark window colour, will match the roof.

5 years5 yearsjezzarosejezzarose posted:

Thanks for that :) now further to this, what color would you recommend for the panel door? Match bricks or render?

5 years5 yearsjezzarosejezzarose posted:

Sure, so for bricks either grange: or cobalt: , or even PGH liquorice:
Then possible limed white render:
Thanks!
