Cover gap between wardrobe and wall

the cupboard has bowed. Very good chance the wire for the switch is running up the wall. Remove the with plate to check, then screw below.

Swimming Pool Cost

60k + for 8x4m. But sooooo
Many variables will increase that cost.

Roof - colour bond Vs Tiles?

Funny. I love the sound of rain on colourbond. Very comforting to fall to sleep to.

We got them to do all floor tiling as we wanted the same floor tiles throughout the house including through wet areas. Did annoy me they tile around cabinetry though.…

Yep. They have to do the wet areas but you can do everything else yourself. Suggest you look at carpet yourselves too as the std is below std imo (-“as…

Opinion on fibreglass pools

$700 is nothing in the scheme of the costs of pools. I always Go with reputation over dollar savings. Otherwise you’d easily spend that money fixing a cheaper companies mistakes.

First home - timeline?

They’d be better placed to give you a time. They know how many other builds they have on, their trades and logistics.

No they won’t allow any extra trades outside their own and independent inspectors.

OMEGA 90cm Freestanding OF916FX

Just be mindful freestanding looks good but there’s not seal between stone and oven. So expect to get sauce, liquid etc fall between cooktop and cabinetry.
Induction for the win.

You could also entertain independent build inspector. Someone like housepect. For just over 2k they will give you additional peace of mind across all the major stages including water proofing.…
