We have gotten a couple of quotes around $8000.

Yes, we have solar hot water and still need a 6kw system. If you have natural gas HWS and heating you might be ok with less.

Yep same issue with our doors. Annoying not having screens on for summer!
Congrats on handover, finally

The screen door tracks aren’t level, they dip in the middle therefore screen doors fall out as you slide them across.

On the topic of window coverings I’d recommend screen doors are done by W. We got ours post handover and unfortunately our stacker door frames were installed incorrectly during…

No Wisdom landscapes don’t offer exposed ag, well at least they didn’t when we built.
The price difference wasn’t that much over coloured, $1000 more or so

Looks great Oz.
Did you get your door handle changed?
Does this mean you’re finally finished with maintenance?
We haven’t heard a thing from Wisdom since our maintenance inspection mid-August. Pretty disappointing.

Everyone does. They need one for the piers and one for the slab, and only one is included.

So a standard wall tile is $50 per sqm to lay outside of included areas. Did they charge you for additional grout and tile adhesive etc too?
I can’t search far…

Hmm I thought wastage was 10% but 20% wouldn’t surprise me
The standard tiling in laundry is only one tile high (20mm?) and around sink only so they have definitely quoted…

600m height. So 0.6x2.3=1.38sqm
They may have done the wall next to sink too if the sink is in the corner of bench

No, if you select a tile from the standard range for a non-included area, you get charged the $25 per sqm for the tile and additional to lay, so our…

The $35 def doesn’t include labour, think about it, do you think DL would charge $35 for the tile AND laying?! Lol
Additional laying costs (for larger tiles or mosaic etc)…

The $35 sqm is just the cost of the tile, the signature package would also include the cost of the laying if it’s a standard sized tile. Can’t help…

Building With Wisdom Homes - Shaker Style Upgrad

Are you sure the choice isn’t one or the other, ie $7k if you want plain poly or $10k for shaker? As shaker doesn’t come in laminex does it? Sometimes…

Yes, it’s usually the case if building in a new estate

The set up you’ve posted is what we are meant to have and will be having put in.
I’m not sure about the snib, I just know others have had one…

Cool. We do actually use the front door with the park across the road (and also because the garage is full lol) otherwise yep wouldn’t be an issue.

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

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?

2 months2 monthsMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

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

2 months2 monthsMandM+4MandM+4 posted:

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…
