They are just charcoal laminex but the dulux domino cupboards at Timpelle were basically the look we were after.
The back of the island is a void space because it’s so…

Yes it is getting exciting, can’t wait to see the tiles.
Where is yours up to?

Didn’t hang around long, but I’m glad the place is secure even if it means I can’t get in. Hubby is there Tuesday so I’ll get him to take pictures…

Peaking through the windows at my new kitchen. The island bench is huge!
Tilers start next week. Will have to arrange a walk through once they’re done, not liking being locked…

You really ought to get some sort of compensation for that stuff up

The PAs for those things will be credited in your draft end panel as by then you will have the actual quotes confirmed from your appointments. It’s only landscaping that…

We included our whole landscaping quote in our contract total for the same reason, $52k. You then have an on-site consultation with wisdom landscapes once construction is underway to confirm…

We haven’t had any unexpected variations pop up during construction if that’s what you mean, and I’ve rarely heard of that happening on here.
The additional pump will likely either have…

Yes we got charged for an extra pump too. Was originally in our Tender, then was taken out, then was put in the variation for edge beams. So then we…

Thanks guys.
Some doors and architraves put on today. Love the big entry door. Glass sliders not on yet so we aren’t locked out but they are on site.

They are just going to be carpeted. I would have loved clear stained timber but nothing was a close match to our floating floor and carpet stairs are less of…

Stairs in, love them. Finally the entry void is revealed and my son loves the bridge to his room.

Definitely ask for this detailed quote, everyone should get it to start with. If we had been sent it originally I would have figured out that the square metres in…

Fixed price tender

The price of that promotion would be included in the Tender and what you get for that price, yes. Most people upgrade over and above those promotions.

Fixed price tender

Flooring is not a permanent item in your house, like window furnishings and landscaping. Some builders include it, some don’t.
Your Tender price will include a basic kitchen, wet area tiling,…

Our construction plans were correct, except for the layout of tiles in the laundry which meant we needed to ask DL for a requote and the admin process then dragged…

Yes our bench is 2150mm long, deluxe was $1400. I ended up switching to standard which I think was around $1200.
No credit as such for sinks, they just charge you…

They are all cleaned. Porcelain tiles have a layer of wax on them which is harder to get off.

It’s the same for everyone. Generally the admin period takes 9-12months, not 6 like they tell you. The construction period is better though.

11 d11 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

I would def consider getting the main flooring done after handover. You’ll save the 30%ish builders mark up which at those prices is a lot of money.
