No idea if it's legal or not, but this does not surprise me. Building contracts are heavily biased towards the builder...it's really unfair, and they keep making things worse. Good…

I built with Mimosa. This must be something they only introduced recently, as I was allowed to have inspections. I read someone else mention this new fee as well. They…

Hi Guys,
Just an update on this, the builder agreed to re-do the entire splashback, so they ripped it down, re-plastered that section and re-tiled it. Problem is that the grout…

Not sure would have to check. Does ducted heating have a return air vent at all? Could also be for that and I may have mistaken it for the evap.…

Incorrect. It's definitely a return air vent as noted by the 'RA' on the plans as shown in the pic above, and the ducting for the evap system is connected…

It's a return air vent for the evaporative cooling. What other vent would there be?
