Thanks Zen!
Our SS was onsite recently and had a neighbour from down the road come up and tell him that they are tearing up their contract with another builder and…

Thanks for the kind words Tea Land, much appreciated!

Awesome to see it happening! Nice corner block location.

Yeah solar is getting better, but unless you're using lots of power between 10am and 2pm, you won't be getting the most from your panels. Adding a battery adds a…

Awesome news Zen! That's a great list of changes, the skylight is a great addition, one that I'm sure you and kjane will be very happy with.
The retaining walls are…

Exciting day Zen! Good luck!
We chose to do everything you listed, except sound proofing beside toilets. Due to which rooms we plan to use as actual bedrooms, we didn't need…

That's a good question kjane, because we were really happy with how they turned out aswell and were glad we didn't upgrade. They are the standard semi frameless shower screens.

Hey Zen,
Yep we selected the upgraded Roof and upgraded Wall Insulation options from the $30k promo list. Seems to have done a pretty good job with our place from our…

That's a shame you need to install the system before you were ready. Our build would not have passed Basix either if the higher requirements were in place back then.…

Hey Zen,
The increased Basix requirements will unfortunately be a factor no matter who you build with. The solar prices mentioned on the Promo list look like they are including a…

Hey Tea Land,
