Hopefully it doesn't effect the structural strength along the edge. It'll be fine, the bricks in the rebate under the alfresco slab are mostly cosmetic.

Is it safe to have the form exposed from the slab like that? The foam on the face of the slab is to be bricked. They simply burn or smash the foam to reveal the void. Personally, it was a crappy job on my alfresco and I chipped it all off and rendered it. Stupid idea with waffle slab. Steve is corr...

Looks Good Rob. Have you got your Frames ordered ? Hopefully if the weather remains good, next 4-6 weeks you will be able to see the external structure of the house. Thanks Vin. Frames will arrive soon, but in the mean time the next thing they plan to install is the external drainage. How's your ho...

Week 5 Construction The slab was left to cure so it was a very quiet week. Quite boring actually... a bit like, well, err, watching concrete cure. The only things that happened were the foam blocks forming the brick rebates under the porch & alfresco slabs were removed and the concrete pits for ...

Looks good Vin. They seem to be making good progress. I was pleased to see the Stegbar stickers on your windows. We have a preference for Stegbar but other Rawson customers had reported being told that Rawson weren't using Stegbar anymore.

Thanks for posting, Rob. We are just in the process of signing up with Rawson Homes for a Oxford 24 in Sutherland. How long was your preconstruction phase? We were told 6 months preconstruction plus 8 months construction. Good luck with your build. Hi foxpro. Our preconstruction phase was abnormal ...

We're in the Sydney southern suburbs, the St George area. Contract says the standard 43 weeks for completion. Week 1...

The design is based on the Balmoral 34 but is modified to suit our block and has an equivalent floor area of a Balmoral 38. The plans ar...

Hi fellow, does anyone have any idea how much Rawson generally charge for Glass splash back in Kitchen. I have been told that due to cooktop heat the glass splash back comes of high temperature rating and can cost in $2K range. I am trying to decide whether to go for glass splash back or stay with ...

Thanks SaveH2O, I was hoping you might respond to my post. The tank manufacturer is Kingspan and that diagram is from their brochure. It should be fairly easy to get the pump raised.

Sadly, we are having the same issue with the stairs, and asked for exactly what you did.. display home look but carpeted. I can't see Rawson or Genneral Staircase changing their ways as it's not costing them money, but it is loosing them goodwill and reputation and referrals. They need to be very d...
