Then you will still need to get your driveway done etc. Also don't expect to be compensated for the delay as a 1mm rain ...

Yes, all the wiring are done by the builder. I just need the lights installed after handover.

You will be looking at around 100k extra for site cost and all the upgrades. By now you would have noticed that the base price for the Grandworth is a lot cheaper than the Palace Regent or Princeton because it does not have any of the inclusions. Grandworth is for those who want a big house but on t...

Your house is looking very nice, really like the tiles you have chosen. Garage door looks great with your bricks. Looks like all will be on track for PCI before Xmas :) I have to agree. The garage door looks great.

Thanks Guys, One rather worrying point is they've stated the build time is 34 weeks! This is after being told through the tender process that it would be 20, maybe 24. This means the build will be well into winter with possible bad weather delays. Seems the problems never end with these guys :( Wil...

You will need hydraulics engineer to design your storm water. I did pay for one to design mine. My land is similar to yours. Total cost including design and construction costs me about $5k. I don't think mine is a charged line however it is laid from one side of the property to the other overflowing...
