White risers for new stairs

Thank you!
I am a bit concerned with moisture but I think it would only be exposed to moisture during cleaning.
I am not sure though how they are are going connect…

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…

well, we have already decided that it is going to be laminated floor upstairs including the stairs. so no carpets and such.

My newly built house is almost ready for us to move in and we have…

regarding the acoustic insulation. no they haven't provided any proof at all. though they promised as we requested an inspection for that. after they installed gyprok they claimed that they…

By the way, update from us.
We had an inspection today.
They installed kitchen and bathroom cabinets. They have already started putting first coat of paint. All looks good.

i see, your build is much more expensive, therefore HBCF is this high

they are right. if you are just shopping around and getting quotes without obligations from different builders it is your responsibility to monitor any price and inclusion changes.
BUT

Hi the dream! how is it going?
Yes HBCF price increase is not their fault. it is industry-wide and therefore we didn't mind paying the difference.
it is just in our case…

Mallik, how much is your total tender price if not a secret.
HBCF depends on the price of home.
Mine is about $340,000 and HBCF was $3400. Kurmond charged $3900.
Also what's with…

by the way, does anyone have their latest double storey price list.
I just wonder how much my home costs now :)

12 d12 dnada17nada17 posted:
Building with Kurmond Homes

well by low they will need to provide the HBCF of course.
the only thing that now they charge $5k extra at contract stage as a surprise-surprise! additional price to your…

Building with Kurmond Homes

Hi guys,
just FYI,
it looks like Kurmond recently excluded HBCF insurance cost from their inclusions. So the HBCF is not anymore included into the basic home price that they advertise.
That's…

Hi guys,
we have received some update pictures yesterday (see pics below).
Looks like they finished tiles in wet areas and about to install some kitchen cabinets.
I think they need to do…

I sent another email to them last night and today our SS replied that he was on leave and will be back shortly and is happy to arrange an inspection.

Hi guys!

I think it is important to mention it to them that you are not going to pay any price increase if the delays…

well, as I said they refused to give me an appointment saying that I would have a pre-paint inspection in 2 weeks (which I doubt).

Hi there!
Sorry to hear about your troubles.
Did you try to contact their senior management and owners?
They are probably waiting for other jobs to be completed so they can start with…

Guys, anyone knows what does an insulation certificate consist of?
