Brick spacing & timber post

I brought this up. The plan says it's a 90x90 sacrificial timber post on stirrups. SS says it's ok to be on bricks. Is the timber post required and is…

Hello all!
Just looking for opinions on these.
Red: The marked mortar joints look closer than the rest. Is this acceptable given they would have had to cut some bricks smaller to…

Aircon Ducting

That makes sense but I already paid for pre-ducting to ground floor. So it would be a waste not to use them.

Thanks! That answers my question. I couldn't see any holes in the joists so I thought they had forgotten that I ordered pre-ducting.

Thanks, will do.
How about the ducting in the ground floor ceiling space - how does it get across all the floor joist?

It's a home/land package and I only got the provisions for ducting. The floor plan already has crevices in the design that runs from the roof space to the ground…

I think from the plans, the pipe for the toilet sink is to sit under the frame (frame then needs to be modified to allow access to pipe). You can…

Framing is definitely right when I compare it to the plans. Watching over the footage again, they definitely put it in the wrong place. One side of the formwork should…

Funny thing is I have footage of them pouring the concrete and the concreter was even measuring from the front of the house as to where to put it!
