I don't know too much about BAL ratings but a quick google indicates the location is rated one above BAL low, which attracts no structure or cost modification. BAL 12.5…

How did everyone go about deducting items charged on the contract that either didn't end up needing to be done, or an allowance for expenses that they may not have…

I don't remember the letterbox cost, I think around $100 to $200? The driveway was $5000 and the concrete for back patio and front porch was a grand or two,…

I chose Coral Homes, mainly because my block is quite small (375m2) and they had a floorplan that fit the block really well and still allowed for some room. It…
