Gas bottle prices - Brisbane. How much do you pay?

Hi Paul
I've had bottle gas at a few different places, but went onto plumbed natural gas at my last house so my figures are a little rusty, but that seems…

Modified Madison 35 by Clarendon Homes - Brisbane

Thanks! Doesn't seem like there are many Clarendon builds on here in QLD at the moment, so it's good to be able to follow another one

I've tweaked the design a little as you can see below - flipping the shower/toilet in the ensuite. This makes for a bigger shower and seems to open the space…

This is the plan as things currently stand. We deleted the downstairs study to make a larger WIP and laundry; pushed the rear wall back 0.5m and shrunk the bench…

This is the original Madison 35. Our was flipped so we could zero line. It also meant the living areas were protected from the western sun.

We’re building the Madison 35 with Clarendon Homes in Brisbane. After reading seemingly every building thread on homeone I decided it was about time to start one of our own!

Decking new Alfresco

I think that's what everyone's been talking about above - you'd need to rebate the door tracks, and then either have your alfresco slab at the same height as your…

First time build - plan presentation prep

Hi Catgee
The design looks pretty good. How important is the toilet door in the ensuite?
This comes down to my own preferences, but I'd go for a bigger shower rather than…

Is that to help you pick colours/fittings etc?
Are you going to browse through the studio before your appointment or do it all on the day?

Is that a hanging rail above your laundry sink? Very clever idea! I'm going to steal it :)

I've just ordered my Preliminary Building Agreement, so i'd say I'm about 4-5 weeks behind you. The date estimations are ... daunting! 4 months just in admin stage sounds painful…

You could consider keeping the ensuite door in front of the toilet but have it open straight out onto the master instead of into the WIR. That way you could…

I like what you've done with the master - making one entry into the large WIR really maximises that space.
We were looking at the Sheridan's, but our block (14m wide)…

Hey! Very exciting for you, do you have a list of the modifications? Or a floor plan with them on it?

If those are the colours you like in those drawings, take that into your colour appointment to show the consultant. If it's something else, see if you can bring photos…
