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

Fertiliser question

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

Lilly Pilly Hard Cut back

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.
Take it back harder…

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.

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.…

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

Buying Down lights after handover

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.

Not quite....
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.

Massive job. The boys took nearly a day to do it. Even if I had provisioned it, the cost would have worked out the same getting the fittings connected.
