Yes that first dot point says to me that you are covered.

I asked for photographic evidence that the defects had been rectified and it never happened. Not all site supervisors will be prepared to do this but worth asking anyway.

We probably will end up painting it white after handover but I wanted to wait and see how it ends up looking once the decking goes in below.

We got paneled alfresco too. We selected a whitewash from a sample but it looks a bit orange/cream in real life and in hindsight I wish we had picked solid…

I have this concern at every stage of the build. We have forwarded the report to BC and SS at each stage and asked for all defects to be rectified.…

I'm glad we have the detail on the garage door now as our windows had to be simplified to pass the Estate Guidelines leading to the facade having less character.

Yes the garage door is in Surfmist which was the whitest we could get in colourbond. I was concerned it wasn't going to be white enough against the pillars and…

It was $1029 for the garage door and we got a credit back for the Timber-look door in our promotion which we did not use.

Porter Davis did offer one as an optional extra. Was between $1000-$2000 from memory.
You would probably have more choice of range installing one post build.

We did two zones, upstairs and downstairs and upgraded the control pad.

I like the skirts to be larger than the architrave. We are going 140mm skirt and 92mm architrave as going for a classic Hamptons theme.

You can ask your council for permission to have a different setback. We did and they said yes.
