Hey, loving your kitchen! Just had a look at your blog and glad to see you are close to handover at long last.
Just thought I’d mention regarding the door handle,…

How frustrating. They need to fix the plans as those are what they use to build the house. Like you said, they need to know where to put plumbing etc
Check…

Your construction plans will include the changed cabinetry from your kitchen appointment.

For square set I would go recessed, unless they are double roller blinds or it’s stacker doors, then you’ll have to have them on the architraves/wall.

Absolutely stunning
3 months is ridiculous, even if they are shipping the tiles here by boat from Italy!
Don’t accept handover without it complete as otherwise you’ll be in your home for…

We got the main flooring in our office but it was put in our tender so we just got the upgrade price in lieu of carpet. If you didn’t decide…

You’ll get a credit if you aren’t having any flooring put there. Otherwise you will be charged for the new flooring in lieu of carpet. $50 per sqm extra to…

Yes it costs to do this. The cost of the tile may be the same as the carpet but I assume it costs them more to lay tiles in lieu…

What size is the tile and how wide are the steps?

12 d12 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:
Building with Wisdom Homes

We considered it but didn’t. I think it’s $600

13 d13 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:
Building with Wisdom Homes

No I don’t think so, I think that’s for changes in construction.
Email your CSR and ask about making the change, it’s at W’s discretion anyway.

Not sure. There will probably be more variations to come so I don’t think they’d charge you for that but maybe a redraw fee as it’ll need to be on…

Yes, a variation

You would need to change it prior to approvals as it’s an external door. It’s not a big deal, I think most people leave them standard height, I just really…

Have you gone for DA/CDC yet?

13 d13 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

They did this to us first time too, our tender came back just standard CsDs then we specified the size. We had to ask for everything we wanted, nothing was…

13 d13 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:
Building with Wisdom Homes

Yes I would. The CSD was expensive as it’s 1040 wide and we upgraded the profile at colours also but they’re worth it.
Also love the raised height stacker doors

13 d13 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

You need to have specified all the door heights if you don’t want them as standard. Even if your package includes raised door heights it wouldn’t include the home theatre…

14 d14 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

Did you pick colours from the standard range?

Everything is specified in your end panel and construction plans. We changed some tiling after we got our first draft construction plans as we too were confused as to what…

Your bank will probably require your insurance certificate to release your cheque for handover. You can date it from the handover date.

15 d15 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:
Building with Wisdom Homes

We don’t have one either, I have seen it done to some other Wisdom homes though but I have no idea the reasoning behind it.

16 d16 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

Everything looks great JM, glad your House is finally getting close to completion!
Shouldn’t you have splashback to the left of the sink also?

Not just rain, “adverse weather”, so heat, high winds etc. One day of adverse weather I think can account to 3 days claimable. I have known builds run months over…

I love ceiling fans, so cheap to run. We run ours even when the aircon is on, cuts down on the energy use.
Personal preference

“Active” is probably customers in admin. Once in construction it’s rare you need to contact your CSR.

26 d26 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

I’d suggest you provision for a strip light above the mirror/s. Other than that we find the 3 in one is enough.

So before slab you have working drawings to do, contract signing, selections appointments and those quotes to come back, basix certificate, developer and council approvals, draft end panel, construction plans,…

1. Endure was included for us. The paint finish in our house is excellent with only a couple of touch ups required at maintenance.
