our bank needs OC for that and we…

wow, you will have a fancy house it seems! :)

well we were not really offered that.
we actually ask about all this during tender presentation (before signing it).
after signing the tender we new when it would expire (it is said…

I would say they need 6 months from the day they are on site, give or take.
and no, Kurmond doesn't give any lock combinations. the other way around, they stress…

I am a bit concerned with moisture but I think it would only be exposed to moisture during cleaning.

Ah, I see! that was my first thought. I am just concerned how it is going to look. that's why I am asking if anyone did something similar

I don't think that painting laminated floor is a good idea. We asked the suppliers, they didn't recommend.
I don't know if the pictures show laminated floors or timber floors. I…

Mine is about $340,000 and HBCF was $3400. Kurmond charged $3900.
