@Jahangir, I didn't upgrade any external venting. What I mentioned above is what I got as standard. I sometimes think even HSI don't know what they're doing :/

It's not on the plan or on any of the documents we had for that matter.
I noticed above someone mentioned it's on BASIX but I couldn't see it on…

For the Livingstone floor plan, the rangehood, main bathroom and separate toilet get vented externally. The main bathroom and separate toilet are located in the middle of the home, so…

PixiGT your home is looking fantastic. Loving the feature tiles in the bathroom! Not long to go now :)

We would have gone the slimline but we dont have enough clearance down the side of the home, so not to many options left.

If it helps, I have some other posts which might be able to help you?
I have listed all our…

Hey Amazingk,
Slowly but surely - we've just been excavated (on Friday just gone) and had bricks delivered already! It's really nice to see something physically happening and not just…

Hi Amazingk,
This is new news to me! We arn't getting any kind of splashback installed, not even tiles - it'll come handed over with just gyprock...

Yes, absolutely possible to do splashback post handover. That's what we are doing. :)
