Building area Calculation

something to do with counting the external walls.
If your spreadsheet is the internal wall sizes there is no area of walls in your calcs.

Haha, that's not something to be sad about! Congrats on lockup - do you have a handover date?

First floor lighting conundrum

First of all - to me - 'first floor' means upper floor. I assume we are talking ground floor if the issue is the slab of the floor above.

The issue of roof colour and insulation are both dealing with heat loss by conductance.
This is a function of the resistance of the materials, and the temperate difference.

Ditching the verandahs or going with clear sheet on the north would probably help your rating if it is a winter issue. Also styrene under the slab (R1.0 or so)…

Knockdown and rebuild without planning permit, possible?

I don't think too many professionals would be willing to work on anything that might land them in hot water. The ones that would are probably those to avoid.

Where do I start???

Sounds like you should meet with a designer or architect as a first step?

Whirlybirds & Roof Ventilation - Do you need it?

Don't think so - in a cooler climate (like Melbourne) your home will perform better with an unventilated roof (in NatHERS, anyway)

Oh ok - yeah sorry I have no experience with this product.
Maybe call the supplier or manufacturer?

What does the inside of the 'external corner' block you have look like. I might just be a corner - internal or external?

Anyone used/have thoughts on shadowline / ShadowSet cornice?

Nope - stick roof. Ceiling joists are timber 90x35 or 90x45 no battens. Don't see too many trusses here in WA - maybe 5% of project homes?

4 years4 yearsTristaniumTristanium posted:

Yes, battens would be a good option at the cost of some ceiling height - but only to areas which are over 2.4m ceilings - otherwise this will drop the…

Actually, maybe they can just dryline your walls instead of float/set - that would solve the issues..but you would need to install a skirting (if you hadn't planned to do…
