Building with Wisdom Homes

Welcome!
The house sounds like it will be a palace, looking forward to seeing it take shape.

We were able to make structural changes up until contract signing. If you have just requested a tender variation though see if you can add to it to save time,…

Eden Brae Homes vs Wisdom Homes - Help please!

We were deciding between W and EB last October. We went with W because their inclusions were better, the house had more of a wow factor and we had had…

That said, it is something that is marked on the plans. They will charge you a plan redraw fee I would suggest but hopefully not

Maybe argue that you’ve just seen this common upgrade list, since you weren’t given it you didn’t realise it the fridge tap was an upgrade.

2 d2 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

Ugh, so they are even less helpful with selections! You’d think they’d prepare you as much as possible so you’re likely to upgrade more!
The USB was mostly brochures from suppliers,…

Not sure, surely they must give you something to show your options before appointments?!
The USB helped but could have had a lot more on there.

2 d2 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

Yep, very reasonable for Wisdom landscapes

Check your Wisdom USB also, might have a more up to date price on there in the list of common upgrades.

I think they are always variable and interest only.

Wisdom Majestic 38 - Swapping Living and Alfresco

I didn’t say move the alfresco to the right, I said move the leisure further to the right. That would mean you can access the yard from the alfresco.

That’s why I suggested moving the leisure to the right, but maybe I’m biased because that’s exactly what the Monte Carlo is like

Yes I would prefer to have the leisure and dining separate and sacrifice the pool view. I think either option works though, it’s just personal preference.
If you’re getting a…

Well we would have kept the original layout and had the pool on the Alfresco side, as that’s what ours is like. Our alfresco will be extended to the fence…

If you kept standard layout, where would your pool be?
The pic you posted of the house with it swapped they have added a wall between dining and leisure and also…

I don’t think the living and dining on the same side would be weird but the alfresco/leisure walk not being in line with the kitchen would bother me I think.…

That looks unreal!
Can you PM the concreter you’ve used?
Fingers crossed it’s all done by Xmas for you.

Great news (apart from the bushfire rating)
You won’t have an issue with Tender expiry now you are past council, unless you have major hold ups with your bank.

It’s not. The inclusive laminate is for the main flooring.
We went the inclusive laminate as it’s a $70 flooring so by far the best bang for buck. You do have…

I think once grouted it will be barely noticeable. Maybe there was a slight variance in the tile sizes so they didn’t match them up as to match them up…

It adds up for sure but because you have already included the full height tiling you should be able to roughly estimate the cost by figuring out the area of…

Looks like that tile has 1.5mm grout therefore it must be rectified.
Bear in mind that even though you have full height tiling in your Tender that is for included tiles…

This is good to know, I want a garden bed to soften the colourbond fence next to the pool but hubby doesn’t want the mess/maintenance. This might be a compromise.

11 d11 dMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

Agreed. That’s why we stuck to a lot of W’s inclusions that we wouldn’t have necessarily chosen, like the cornice and glass splashback, freestanding cooker, tapware etc. to change anything…
