Check everything 3 times and then after each revision set you get back. Time spent here will save time and variation fees down the track.

Yeah we have straight stairs as well with an added two steps due to slope of land. Door under was added with lining. But no-one told us it wasn't tiled.…

When you have storage under the stairs built in with door access (which I understand built in is standard?) does the DiLorenzo floor tiling quote cover this area?

Kvav27, I love the look of your house. Were the front steps poured as part of the slab or separate? What bricks have you used?

Double check the addition of the total. We had a provision allowance credit of $25k added instead of subtracted. Meant a $50k decrease in total when edited.
