Can’t complain! Some things took a little longer than expected as they had to line up their contractors, but none of these were urgent.
Pretty good and happy with what we…

AllCastle Contract sign to commence build

Must be exciting mate! When we did ours we rented a house just up the road so I visited the site pretty much everyday...so exciting!

I went with this toilet. Does the job.
Another thing I just thought of. There’s not enough space above powder room to install an ixl tastic heater/fan/light combo. I paid…

Hey mate, I’d be putting in more like 5-10% of your house build cost on landscaping.
And for the driveway, you can expect to pay between $70 to $100 p square…

Hey LevaneT. Good luck with the build. Here is one thing I just thought about the electricals. I had the home hub option. Ask them to wire with Cat6 cables…

We upgraded the stacker doors. The top of the stacker door lines up with the top of the windows. So we did it purely for aesthetics. Likewise with internal doors.…

Mate I'm not an expert in this field, but you are going to want to upgrade bits in your house. Everything in the display home is an upgrade. Facade is…

One more thing. I had the air con installed yesterday. You choose between Daikin and Actron. If any AC mechanics are on here they might be able to factually compare…

Where are you building - between the arborist report and the acoustic windows - I'm curious as to where you are.
2 years sounds like a joke! Our contract had 38…

Need help in selecting builder.

IN your initial tender, specify all the upgrades, don't assume that the base price is what you see in the display home. Then you'll see what your actual cost is.

By the way, the base price is for the minimum...you'll upgrade your facade, fittings, you'll need more powerpoints, lights, the stacker door will be higher if you do 2700mm downstairs,…

once the contract is signed and the DA approvals and demolition is certified complete, there was 20 days for AH to start. That was us mid 2016 anyway.

Sorry for the delayed response. I must admit my experience has been quite fuss free. I did go over budget - by about $1,200 due to the traffic control cost…

Hey mate, sorry I can't answer your question, but what kind of defects are you looking at pre-pour?

Hi Sodapop,

Hi there,
I would think after?
You'll need to run power to the pool pump etc....and you don't really have power during construction.
