Hi shazaw, did you leave your door heights in the upper floor as standard? Thanks

If the cost is too much for 2.7m then 2.59 is a better option than 2.4m standard height.

Ceiling height option for 2 storey - please vote

Thanks Brenton, that was our first choice. Having 2.7m and 2.5m are great, but due to building envelope requirement we have been limited to two options only.

hi there,
If you have given these options, which one would you choose?
All doors in the ground floor will have 2340mm height.
Appreciate your vote. Thanks
