Hi,
We have received our landscaping quote from builder and as expected, it is very high, so now considering what we want them to do before handover and what we want…

Hi,
Do you mind sharing where you got your stools from? I love the look of them.

Thanks Manhattan52
Being first time building, I naively believed it when Dom told us the 44 weeks building time was just a number…

Can anyone explain how to calculate the expected completion date? Our build time is supposed to be 44 weeks, does that mean we add an extra 3 weeks during Christmas…

We get updates via sms mostly, sometimes verbal when we have questions. Like you, our portal has no updates or photos. It must depend on the SS. Maybe site supervisers…

We were charged $836 per load of fill removal and $1430 per load of mixed fill removal. In our situation, it was too hard to do it later so we…

Thanks for your clarification. Not good for you, but lucky that you have photos. Our photos before construction showed cracks already... Definitely lucky to have evidence, but also reassuring to…

During construction, if there is damage to neighbours vehicular crossing as a result of Wisdom’s trucks going over it, whose responsible to fix it?

What are people’s thoughts on their landscaping quotes from W? We are unsure about our retaining wall at the rear at the moment. Cost seems high but concerned that if…

Does that just mean what side the garage is on?
Thanks, it was what I was suspecting, just not sure 🤔

Good morning everyone,
Haven't posted in a while. Our demolition was completed at the beginning of the month and clearance certificate sent through, but haven't received any updates from CSR. Our…

Yes, we’ve changed it when we finalised our plans.

Thanks.
I am unsure why Wisdom don't organise this as the questions I was asked by Sydney Tiger Tails I didn't know the answers to... A friend who's using another builder…

Has anyone had to organise their own tiger tails?

Building with Wisdom Homes

Many of the volume builders are unwilling to build near school zones, busy roads, near bus stops etc. Wisdom is more flexible with this, but every case is different.

Your house looks great 👍🏻. May I ask where you got your curtains from and what material they are?

You get two additional zones compared to the classic, from memory.
I’ve always had inverter systems as they save on energy, this works in a similar way. Since I didn’t have…

We signed the submission plans, then went through CDC. After CDC approval, we signed draft end panel, now construction plans. It seems maybe the order is different to yours? Maybe…
