Yip, over the original building. I can stand on my roof and touch it. I would not want to palm the cost on to the neighbour. More thinking about the Electricity company or council.

Hi I have a neighbour’s overhead power cable crossing not only the property, but also the house. We are in the process of doing a knock-down and rebuild and are being held up by the overhead cable. I’ve been quoted $2.5k for the pit and then (for good will) I also need to pay to run the cable from t...

Hi, We are about to do the knock-down rebuild. In the middle of our back yard, we have a 50k litre inground pool which after much thought is going to be filled in or used as a water tank. The best option seems to be to hard cover the pool and place a bladder(s) inside to hold the water. Has anyone d...

I'd be very interested to see what you have ended up with (design wise). As we are on a tight budget, the Liberty 42 pretty much gives us what we want without too many modifications.

Thanks for the headsup as we are about to chat with the same company. We have a question which you may be able to assist with. Is is worth looking for the right salesperson or are they all the same working off the same book. My guess is that you are also working with different people during the proc...

This will include driveways, floors, non critical electrical, kitchen appliances etc. Is it ...

Hi folks, We are doing a knock down rebuild so do not qualify the first home buyers grant. At the moment Metricon are having their upgrade promotion as well as a free upgrade to a colourbond roof. In your opinion, after the first home buyers grant, are prices more likely do go up or down. I do not u...

Hi, We are about to make contact with a volume builder to build a 2 story home in Melbourne. We are generally good at finding good prices and finding the best quality as opposed to the most expensive. Are there things that we are better off purchasing and having installed ourselved as opposed to hav...

Hi. I am looking to build a 42 square double story home in Melbourne. I would like to do it all in tiles for the wet areas and floorboards for the rest. Is this practical as I am yet to see a display home or newish double story without carpet in at least one room. I would use large rugs in the livin...

Henley (Melbourne) prices are going up March 1, so I guess the poll is right!

Been continuing the research. This one sounds interesting: http://www.elmich.com.au/projects/pool.htm Accorning to the propaganda: I'll get around 40K Litres when converting my 50K Litre pool. Sounds great. Still many questions about maintenance, cleaning, longevity, faults, so by no means endorsing...

G'day Folks, Thanks for your replies. It looks like I am going to fill it in. The cost of renovation + upkeep vs actual swimming usage does not work in the pool's favour. I wish I could use it as a water storage tank as the idea of a 50k litre water tank sounds great. I've contacted 3 interstate com...

Hi all. I am looking to demolish and rebuild in Melbourne. My dilema is that I have a 50K litre pool in the back yard. Aesthetically, the pool is keepable although it will need to be refurbished / modernised to bring it into line with the new home. The dilema is cost of refurbishing vs filling-in vs...

Hi all. I am looking to build with a Melbourne building company on my own land. The list price is around $230k plus I'll be adding about $90 worth of options which gets me to around the as-displayed price. My question is: Is there much room for negotiation on either the list price or options and to ...
