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)

Just be aware that with the way the ducted AC works, you have to have a minimum number of outlets on when it's operating. This means that you will not…

Ah sorry. Misread your comment. Yeah we are hoping to take ours off and change to plain white. Hopefully we're not too late with that decision
