Doesn't it depend on the type of double bowl basin used? If you are opting for 2 single bowl basins, then you will have stone between the sinks. If the…

I was advised that, for a 2-storey build, the standard is for ground floor to vent outside and the first floor to vent to the ceiling (with no option to…

I thought Pre-Plaster is more important than Frame because the tradies will do anything to the frame to get their services through. Once the plaster goes up, all the changes…

Did anyone check with their New Homes Consultant to find out whether Boutique removed anything to bring the prices down? I find it odd that prices are so much lower.…

The Addenda will contain the information under the section - PAINTER. There, it will state clearly the number of coats on the walls ceilings, cornices, doors, architraves, and skirting boards.

This 3-coat paint is definitely new as I recall 2-coat as the standard "premium inclusion". It cost me $ 1,161.00 to triple coat a double-storey.

For those who have moved in, do you still release payment if defects are found during house handover? Does Boutique take a long time to rectify defects after handover?

We're using New Home Inspections for 4 stages - Slab, Frame, Pre-Plaster, and Pre-Handover. Costs in the low $ 2k. They are recommended.
