Its the structual work that goes into it. You also have to use a special shower tray and notch out the joists to sit it in. then waterproof everywhere.

Arden don't do it normally. its an addon. Not many builders do it. esp on the first floor.

47k site costs is high. But I think you've got Class P soil by the looks of it ?
But it looks like you've done most of your selections…

Hmm.. I've guestimated at least 50k for landscaping. Even if I do most of it myself there are just some things you need to leave to the professionals. Like electric…

thanks laaa. Very interesting reading. If i'm not wrong, is your total quote mid 6's? i've got you down as 670ish if you don't subtract all the appliances.

Thanks Ezz. My spreadsheet of all the costs is giving me some anxiety. Who would have thought that a house once you add in all the landscaping and finishing would…

571k is pretty good. For some reason I got quoted high 6's for mine. :( I added floorboards and aircon to mine too.

Are you varnishing them so its suitable for the kitchen area?

Amazing! What did arden give you as an initial estimate?

argh... thats so annoying.. what features are we talking about exactly??

Whats the difference in the commercial vs retail units?? I would have thought SMEG would be a fairly decent brand to stick to. No need to upgrade further.

Would love to know what your other upgrades were to hit 651.

Is anyone here building a bespoke? Would like to know what your final build cost ended up as. Thanks

Building with Metricon

Wouldn't you want to do it before? since they'll drill through your noggins if need be. If you did it afterwards, it wouldn't be possible.

Not from what I can see

I'd just get the timber treads done now and carpet them at the same time. Take carpet off in time. The labour cost in the future will be too high.

That's a fairly decent price then for all of that!
