Yes we both took time off work. We have 4 kids and had to get the old house ready for open houses etc too so we were busy enough with…

8 metres.
Wollongong council. Not sure if it’s all suburbs for 2 storey dwellings. CDC not DA.

Looking good!
We had 8 weeks from cabinetry to PCI which was pretty fast.

Our house has 2.59 downstairs and 2.44 upstairs. We didn’t have the budget for higher ceiling upstairs but they would have been nice. The 2.59 is ample. I’d rather have…

Lol. Cornice. I’m British too but moved here when I was 20 and wouldn’t have known what it was called.
They did our electrical cut out at this time too.

We went for a mix of plantation shutters and roller blinds. We have also ordered sheer curtains for our leisure room but not installed yet.
It depends a lot on the…

We had stairs done next, that was a very exciting part of the build for me
Can’t wait to see your internals take shape

Contract signing- slab for us was 5.5 months. Would’ve been 4.5 if we hadn’t made changes. Don’t think it will happen much faster than that. That was CDC approval which…

I think there are always going to be some issues after handover, and we haven’t been through maintenance yet so I’m hopeful we will be 100% happy with the house…

I would advise you to. We didn’t and there have been a few things pop up post handover that we didn’t pick up on,that I think an inspector would have.…

Butlers pantry & finding the right spot for upright freezer

An L-shaped bench in the butlers and upper cabinetry all the way round with panelling around the freezer space? And move freezer to another corner on the top wall so…

Ours terminate in the garage. Another thing we didn’t really think about. It’s fine, wifi reaches all through the house, but the garage is quite narrow for 2 cars, so…

Those who have had soundscreen insulation installed, is it very effective? If you tap on our HT wall you can hear it on the guest bedroom side and it’s supposed…

Yes you can make structural changes until you sign the contract, after that you get charged a fee to redraw the plans.

I guess people could get sentinel to install their standard cables then use them to pull new cables through.

I highly doubt you’d save anything. Not sure how you’d get 5 speaker wires in different locations without replastering.

Yes we kept the handheld with cleaning in mind. Our water pressure is fine it’s just a very big showerhead compared to the little handheld so the water isn’t going…

I’m sorry I don’t know what brand they are and I don’t know what the beam angle is, the boxes they came in are long gone.

You’ll just get hit with a fee as it’s a structural change.

Yep you’ll get your draft end panel which is your contract Tender plus all the post contract variations, and the construction plans.

I would email your consultant. We were in the same boat with our butlers pantry.

We installed 90mm switchable downlights (currently on daylight setting) the same size and wattage as the Clipsal ones W provide, as we got the 15 included ones from W.

It’s ~ $900
You keep the handheld and have a diverter mixer to the ceiling showerhead. You want both, as the ceiling mounted one is bigger but less pressure, kind of…

I’d recommend you put a dimmer switch in and 4 is plenty for any room, the downlights are very…

$600 per colour not per room.
So if half your rooms are one colour and half another, that’s still $600.
We got wisdom to paint our home theatre a different colour but…

Wisdom don’t let you use your own suppliers for anything.
You can tell sentinel exactly where to put the wiring though so it shouldn’t really be an issue.

I would assume the door frame stain is included in the price you have paid for the stain. Stain finish is always extra no matter what package you’re on.
