Hi Ladyice, Glad to see that you are progressing well. I haven't visited this site for a while - thanks for the PM reminder. Good luck with choosing your colours and appliances. I found Entreprise to be very resonable on price (since I double checked everything myself) and accomodating with last min...

Nice bathroom alto, did you do the tiling yourself? :) Thanks Michelle. I am only responsible for choosing the tiles - the builder has done the rest. I will post more pics once we're in and the place is clean.

yeah it does sound high, but what are you gonna do?? it seems a shame not to have the work done whilst there is no plaster up even though you could get someone in later on (but they would probably charge you the same anyway cos it would be a pain in the arse). I thought I paid a bit much for my extr...

I think that we all aknowledge that builders mark up the prices. But hey, they have too - otherwise there is no money in it for them and they might as well not be in business. If you don't want the markups but the freedom to choose what you want then be an owner/builder. On the other hand engage a b...

Hey Designmarc, Relax dude. Everyone has an opinion on a forum like this - although some people shouldn't You got to learn to ignore the noise sometime and acknowledge the fact that your message is out there and someone may get some value from it - don't think that cos your an 'expert' in this area ...

$180 per door is crazy talk - GPs don't even earn that much. He's a link http://www.cordoors.com.au/howtohang.php they make it look easier than it is. The only advice I can give is have the right tools and someone to lend you a hand. Good Luck :D

Hi adb, I've had a very positive experience so far - it seems that I am one of the lucky ones. See my thread below. http://forum.homeone.com.au/viewtopic.php?t=407 I guess that you need to identify those builders that put customer satisfaction ahead of profit. I can honestly say that my builder is o...

give up on expecting euro finish or quality in your house - we simply don't have the expertise in Australia or, if not a luxury home, an ordinary punter can't afford it. an ordinary australian kitchen should last 20 years without fail. ps you must understand one thing in europe, most take their kitc...

Hi David, I'm from the northern suburbs as well. I've lived in Thomastown and Epping for 25 years. I will be moving on to my new house in Essendon in a few months time. Tell us more about your new home.

In my new home i'm fitting smeg appliances. They include a 900mm cooktop and rangehood, double oven and fully integrated dishwasher. I'm yet to hear a bad thing about smeg and the prices seem reasonable. I will also be upgrading my fridge to a Jenn-air up-side-down 2 door in stainless. It's a little...

one made from tin perhaps??? I would have thought that $20k could buy a standard spec brick garage for 2 cars.
