Woo hoo, finally!!
It’s seemed like quite a long build especially for a single storey. Hopefully not long now til you get the keys.

The cost of your stair upgrade is house specific because the amount of balustrade varies, but what you want is the standard staircase with mitred post and rail, sawtooth capping…

You can make changes when you receive your draft end panel, once you sign off on your DEP you can no longer make changes. you may get charged a fee…

No we didn’t make any changes.
Experience with Wisdom overall has been good, like most in this thread admin was slow but construction went well.

We did, had handover about a month ago. Feel free to shoot me any questions.

The truffle clay is a kind of beige colour, chiffon is a darker brown.
Wisdom don’t, or at least didn’t, do a colour mock up but it would be great…

It does look funny in the pics but I’m sure they would pour it level. Maybe put a spirit level on it to ease your mind.

Hmm not sure about the aircon as back when I did selections we did aircon, kitchen and tile appointments months before the others.
We have standard ceilings upstairs and it’s totally…

Aside from deleting the wardrobes as mentioned above, a few more words of wisdom from me for those yet to finalise selections...

In hindsight we should have done this too, left the master robe as an open room, but wardrobes were a bit of an afterthought for us. The included wardrobe rails…

Odd attitude to have? It’s not the consumers responsibility to identify and rectify issues. Building with a volume builder you can’t even go on site without the site supervisor present,…

Your site supervisor will probably leave you the left over tiles incase you need to replace any in the future.
I think the tiled floor wastes look the best but each…

Unless you raise the height of your wardrobe doors you’d struggle to access the space above the shelf though if it was any higher. I can just get…

Is there one installed for the vanity?

Haven’t come across any major issues so far which I am so thankful for. Lots of minor issues, teething problem type stuff like-

When you compare chiffon and truffle bricks side by side they are almost identical. I used to have pics but I’ve deleted them. Maybe a google search would bring up…

Looking great. You’re only a week behind where we were at week 10. The last bit of bricking probably won’t take much more than a week id say unless there’s…

In saying that doing your doors with Timpelle won’t be cheaper, as they don’t credit what you take away. Wisdom might but it won’t be much for leaving out a…

Generally, it’s cheaper to upgrade than replace something after the build, so your pantry door for example, probably cheaper to get Wisdom to do it exactly how you want it…
