We're having them as extras in the laundry, bathroom and ensuite. Do you reckon it would be overkill if we put one in the toilet as well?

Our current house has a zincalume roof, we've been in this house for 22 years and it's still as good as new, the only maintenance we've done is had to knock a couple of nails back down every few years. Never had a leak. Our new build was always going to be colourbond. Love the sound of rain on the r...

Love how you've changed the plan and your colour selections, really looking forward to seeing the end result.

Hi Gillybean, thanks for that. Living areas are all to the north, alfresco will be extended to back of the house, window added to master bedroom on the north side. Another plan I really liked was slightly larger but the orientation was wrong no matter how I flipped it. I also had to take wind into a...

Hi summer5555, we are building on acreage too. We’re in QLD, on a sloping 3acres amongst state Forrest. We need sewage and water tanks. The bushfire report is a pain. That will add costs to your build too depending on your Bal rating. Ours is 19 so it added about 12k worth of upgrades. Your land lo...
I think from memory ours was downgraded to 12.5, however the bushfire assessment required some changes. I didn't realis...

We had to go a smaller house unfortunately due to all the extra costs because of location and BMO assessment. Septic system, some minor upgrades for BAL but couldn't tell you how much that increased the cost, our current water tank has to become our dedicated fire tank so we're getting a 100,000L wa...

This has been in the works for many years, afraid to take the jump to build but it's now or never so ahead we go. We are still working on the plan as we are waiting on preliminary costs to determine which size we go. It's a little odd the plan we have chosen for our site but the original plan I want...

Hoping to get an opinion here as I'm a bit lost at the moment, planning to build on my land and have found a couple of homes I love but have found that the base price difference between melbourne metro and rural is roughly $30k on a 25-28sq home. I get that we have to pay transport costs and such, t...

Some of these site costs are absolutely horrifying. I was considering a slab but am wondering now if stumps are a better option as we have a gentle slope. Could someone clarify at what point (site costs) would you decide to pull the pin on a slab and go for stumps.

Why not investigate spray foam? I know they say the outlay is quite expensive but according to their sites once it's on, it lasts. I have it on my list to investigate when I'm ready to build but that's 2 years away.

I would have loved to have seen a house as magnificent as this being built but I get the feeling that this post is somewhat fictitious.
