Did PD take away any excess dirt left over from anyones piering? They had a perfectly clean flat block and have dumped the dirt behind the building footprint, some 3…

For anyone thats interested in Corinthian pivot door pricing. Please note, these are sourced from the 2015 catalogue, so no doubt are more expensive now.

The pivot frame and door cost more than $2k retail which is sourced from the Corinthian pricelist.

Pivot doors are extremely expensive even without the PD markup. Its not only the door, but the pivot system, door closer, handles etc which brings you to north of $4,000

By lift you mean vehicle hoist? If so, no the ceilings not high enough. All has been increased for the future so I can park 4wd etc without worries and…

Yes it was $3,500 to increase ceiling height. There's a structural beam above the door which prevents the increase in door height unless the entire roof is lifted.

Yes it can be done. All our doors throughout are 2340. We raised our garage ceiling height to 2700 and have 2400 car garage doors. Plaza 44 with triple garage.

Anywhere there's a wet floor area should be sealed.
Toilets and laundry and wherever there's a shower

Thanks Drew. So, powder rooms downstairs should be fully waterproofed. We don’t have a shower…

Looking at the photo, it appears the slab hasn't been poured well. It's not uncommon for this to occur at the bottom. The missing pieces need to be filled with…

Plan might be with a standard 2040mm door. Are you running a 2340mm entry door?

Your window head height specification will tell the story. Looking at the outside from the ground can be deceiving.
Ours are;
Ground 2,162mm above floor level
First floor 5,064mm above floor level.

It seems you are correct. AS/NZ3500.3 Part 3.7.4 (layout). Initial investigation states the following.

- Have a horizontal constant width base
- Have a constant longitudinal slope…

Back to class your BC goes....Clearly doesn't know what they offer. The saddest part of all will be that he/she probably won't be new to the business.

That what we did. We spent $10k on electrical and will spend another $2k post handover to change over to downlights.
I can't justify $140+ for a downlight. From memory…

I doubt anything PD says now and request proof, which they mostly cannot provide. Most times they're are full of crap and attempt to leverage the consumers knowledge gap.

The door doesn't restrict that much air, looking at the plan and the door frame position would be minimum 100mm from the return air grill wall. No doubt there would…

Short sighted dysfunctional business that is blind to opportunities. Churn and burn. Too many chiefs (top heavy) and deep cultural problems that will prevent them from being a great organisation.…
