Ever had your build undervalued?

I felt like we were overcaptilising, especially when our site costs were about 50k but our house came in exactly what we spent on it so that was a relief.

The builders clean

I found the clean with Dale Alcock to be quite amazing actually. I had budgeted a day for cleaning when we moved in but the house was impeccable. Whoever they…

Cost of site work (earthworks, retaining wall, levelling)

Having built on a battle-axe block as well I think you just can't escape the extra site costs. Ours were around that as well but we also had to pay…

Feature tiles help needed

Wow that's a big bathroom, I love it. We didn't do feature tiles either and I haven't regretted it either. I think they will date very quickly.

I wanted an all white kitchen but then I got worried it would look too sterile so I did a half and half. I know our white was polar white…

Pendant Lights vs Down Lights in the Kitchen!

We were going to put pendants in but I think we went a bit crazy on the downlights and we definitely don't need them down. Also because it's open plan,…

I would double check that contract, I thought ours said the same thing but it said they have 220 working days which is 44 weeks. They don't count public holidays…

Would've liked to have met our CLO but she was on leave, key handover took all of 15mins and was a bit of an anti-climax tbh but I'm excited to…

From my experience, get everything in writing - get those pool guys to guarantee it in writing and that way if it does get damaged you've got recourse. Everything verbal…

Dale Alcock Build in Kensington - Moved In

Mine is a similar height and is behind the kitchen cabinetry so you get full fridge depth. You can move it if you don't like it.

Redink SOR rear build - screen doors?

We haven't installed ours yet so can't comment on their quality but Westral always send us fliers and pricing looks competitive so we will probably use them.

Don't be surprised with the variations that come throughout the build. At prestart we asked for a 450mm overhang on our kitchen island bench so we could have enough legrooom.…
