Building at Willowdale

Hi all, just wondering if anyone knew how long da approval for retaining walls take? Are they assessed in the same pile as those for homes (6-8 weeks)?

Is this SB in Leppington/Edmondson park area? If so then yes, he got moved but has to finish a couple that are near completion (ours included)

Just finished my PCI. Took 5.5 hours to go through our double story house, so be sure to book in enough time for it

No, our is. Boston 34. We have been told to expect it around May and April if we're lucky. Haven't been told a date for PCI yet though

That's similar to ours! I think we started around the same time.
We are building in Leppington and just had our bathrooms tiled and grouted. Cabinets installed but no garage…

Retrofit laminated glass

Hi all, with my build my builder would not allow the install of double glazed windows so we went with the standard float glass. I'm thinking maybe later down the…

Yeah ours is like that too, but it starts in the middle of the wall, so they made like a z shape with the skirting. Not sure if that's correct…

I don't know if there is a way to check. The walls are already up and I just peeked through the power cutouts to see it

you could also drop one of the lights or pop out a powerpoint and send a camera in, if you have one of those ones that is on the end…

Hey JK. Would you be able to tell the difference between regular insulation and acoustic? Or are you just checking if they're there?

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to check if insulation has been installed in the walls or do we have to take Clarendons word for…

Two panes of glass in windows with an air gap inbetween. Increases the insulation of the windows to prevent heat gain/loss

Hi all, just wanted to ask those who have moved in or almost there about wall mounting TVs onto the steel frame. How did you guys go about doing so?…

Good to hear it worked out for you.
Just wanted to know how did you add it during the build? Isn't it considered variation?

That's a lot of retaining walls. How high we're they and for how long? (I may need to get some so looking for an estimate)
