The thing about pools is you can spend 50k or 600k ( or more even) there is such a range of what you can do. I guess like houses 400k…

Glad to help if I can.
My thoughts were similar to yours, our latest build was our second. One thing I think about all this is that in general most…

Sure I do. It was fairly obvious to me that the quote was not for a battler doing it tough who needs to shop at the reject shop for their…

I don't see anything big wrong with the OPs price list other than what I mentioned. It is a lot of $$ but looks like they're going the whole hog.…

Um, I would not be using Bunnings prices for anything unless I was doing it myself altogether. Show much does labor cost in this country? (Pssst, it's a lot!)

The only thing that jumps out at me is the garden lighting. $325 a light seems like a lot. Looks like you are going for the works though:) I like…

mixing cement with crushed granite

No. A little concrete to the mix won't make it much harder to dig up. It will be more difficult but not much.

Home plan needed...

My first place had 2m of fall over the building envelope and yours seems close. If you think about it, that's prob too much for a true split level.

Do you have a site plan that shows elevations? You need to know how much fall there is within where you want to place the house.

Speaker systems can be pretty complex. IMHO the best way to approach it is to decide exactly what equipment you will use, exactly where you will place it and work…

Sony Home Theatre - 55" 4K or 65" FHD

I personally wouldn't spend any money on a 4K that was less than 65". To me any size less than that can't really take advantage of that resolution. Especially if…

You make assumptions with what you are saying. I have installed cables for years, its not easy. Totally depends where the datapoint is needed and how much room there is.…

I agree that's not really two data points that you contracted for. They simply extended one. I doubt they will be ably to install a full run though without tearing…

TV DISTRIBUTION

Yes but it sounds like you don't need a box. What else do you want to do besides distribute TV signals??

30m plus is not too far. I would just try coax splitters first and see if there is any issue before worrying about amplification.

How far is the shed from the house? Personally I would install another aerial on the house if you are moving the foxtel. Aerials are cheap.

I have no direct experience but I'm thinking Clipsal are selling a rebranded something else. I can't see them making their own. Per other post here Hikvision makes some great…
