We chose Democorp, they came out the cheapest and had the most included as part of the quote. We haven't demolished our home yet though they have been professional…

Oh I see! Thanks for clarifying about the laminate. So the standard bathroom vanity cabinets are ok?

Thanks kjane! Out of interest, what did you decide with your stairs? I remember you chose a thermolaminate for your kitchen cabinets - did you consider the 2pac at all?

Hi Amanda, we are building the Sienna 42 though with all our floor plan changes, it’s more a hybrid of the Sienna and Elyse. We chose waterproof engineered floorboards and…

Thanks for the advice, AllyBrian! We got the 20kw aircon I think. Will check if we can do just one zone.

Hi Amanda,
We made all the changes and requested everything on our wish list to be quoted so H&H came back with the numbers (including what we wanted as provisional allowances).…

Must be stressful…

I've read through the Tree Management Manual and the Tree Preservation section of the DCP, were there other documents I should look at? The tree we want to remove…

Hi Jammo05, when did you start your build? Looks like you're at the home stretch already!
I didn't know H&H did full custom builds. We are also building the Sienna…

We found out the arborist included up to 9 trees on the report, including trees on neighbouring properties, so we didn't end up going to Council to check which tree…
