Rawson Balmoral 38 MK1 - Newcastle NSW

That's new. On my build it was just 3 core unterminated with a pilot hole in the ceiling.

Plants and hail damage

Just prune the damaged stalks down to main stalk leaving about 1-2cms space from the 'trunk'. Use a sharp flat blade kitchen knife if the tuber is thick, just to…

Building an outdoor room

Further to those above.
Consider a few vents in the roof space and also use light colours on the external facade, roof sheeting.

Congratulations. No more shed camping.

Looking close to finish now. Good luck with IOC, I’m sure you’ll be in by the weekend.

Buffalo Weed

Winter grass. Hand weed to remove seed stock and next winter use pre emergents to break the cycle. Nothing you can do right now but minimise next years crop

In my opinion, they are two different nutrients. Get into it and spread the seamungus.

If you chop it back now, it will take a couple of weeks to fluff up again. Perfect time is now until the end of October.

The lux package is good value. Skip the solar packages. Electrical can be reasonable with moderate add-ons to ground floor as these can be tricky due to flooring above.
I'd keep…

It’s inevitable to want things like 150 downlights, add gas point for bbq, add water point for fridge, floor to ceiling tiling, nicer fittings and fancier kitchens.... But everyone's different.…

Where to put paving drainage

Sloping or grading fall toward the house is a very very bad idea. Any material, should always fall away from the house.

Never heard of rib raft. We call it waffle slab here in Australia.

Front setback- is it worth modifying?

I'd definitely get the DA reapproved.
An extra metre in the backyard is far better.
Cheaper front driveway. It will pay for itself if your going to pay for another submission.

Keep in mind that's just starting temp. As the air is recirculated, bit by bit the internal temp increases. To be fair, in winter, your always going to struggle…

Most, if not All air conditioners, can only alter the indoor coil to +10-12 deg on heat and -10c on colder temperatures settings.
