Well, that’s really a “how long is a piece of string” question but our base price was ~390k, tender ~425, final build price was 504 I think. We were pretty…

You can make variations after you get your first set of plans, as you undoubtedly will so don’t stress too much over what you’ve included.
Keep in mind there’s a levels…

Render ideas help needed please.

That is definitely not surfmist. Surfmist is close to white. Could be colourbond dune? Or even half strength.

Wollongong. Was a CDC though not DA.

Our garage is only 5.5m wide and we’re in Wollongong. Perhaps a developer requirement not council?
6m garage would be better. Ours is still not organised but not sure we could…

Building Monte Carlo 40- Wisdom homes

Hi, the build took 29 weeks from slab to PCI.
We are happy, love the house. A few outstanding maintenance items (slow process after handover) but nothing major.

We got Wisdom to do retaining in our back yard so they could “level” it, where accessible by machine. They couldn’t get a machine in after the build so it…

We don’t have the window splashback but I wouldn’t do anything there. Can neighbours really see much through it?
You could do a more mid-weight fabric for curtains instead of sheers,…

We did a mix of roller blinds and plantation shutters. Still saving for sheer curtains for the 2 lounge rooms.
Personally I like to be able to sleep in darkness…

Hi,
Did you chase this up? Sorry if that’s a silly question. It’s just we had our maintenance inspection and then nothing happened for months until we chased them up. Then…

Really?! But the standard staircase is just MdF and not finished underneath so surely its standard to gyprock under it. They don’t charge for the extra frame/plaster so I assume…

Just a normal standard sized door. I don’t remember it costing much. Love that cupboard for school bags and shoes.

We only did it where it matters, for example our bedroom is above the family/kitchen and we go to bed last so figured no need. One of the children’s bedrooms…

It’ll be cheaper to upgrade than to start again from scratch. That goes for everything in the house really.

Beautiful home doosra!
I’m impressed that you’ve gotten so much sorted already, and all those house plants- wow!
We still haven’t wall mounted our TVs

I regret not getting it. I prefer the look of the benchtop without it but it’s the best looking practical solution IMO. Glasses can’t dry properly being left upside down…

Manhole for sewer.
You would have thought they’d advise you not to have your driveway over it.

I love those stairs too. Kinda wish I’d gone for the black japan stain now but I wasn’t sure if they’d do enough coats, but yours look fantastic.
Congrats on…

I highly doubt it. You’ve signed a contract and lose your deposit if you pull out now so they have no reason to negotiate.
The time for negotiation was before you…

That’ll be fine. We got just the one junction box and it’s for our pool and shed. I think they said 4 double PowerPoints it would do

You can sell it back to the grid though
Our electricity company is paying 25 cents at the moment and charging 29 I think
