Hi everyone, I have a question regarding stamp duty and first home builders/buyers. We are building our first home in NSW over the next six months.

Are the standard floor tiles ceramic or porcelain? Predominately in the prestige range? Ceramic is the standard tile. Porcelain is an upgrade. We are building the Waldorf 50 and had to pay extra. Cheers Kind Regards, Bruce "Building an Eden Brae Waldorf 50 in North Kellyville" Blog: http:...

Thanks Bruce. Looks like we are neighbours, we are on Mapleton ave. Do you think it's worth installing down lights post handover ? The current price is $84 per light vs $121 for a Clipsal down light. Yup it is. Still almost a $40 difference. For us we have light battens ready for the electrician to...

Hi All, We have currently paid our $750 tender fee and looking to build the Waldorf 50. I have a couple of questions for anyone that has already build or gone through the process with Eden Brae. 1. If we opt for a simple ceiling light rather than the downlight, are they all aligned with a laser tog...

All, is it possible to install the surge arrestor after handover. I have been quotes for $263 per phase for the 3-phase power. Any suggestion? Tx. It’s better to do it during the build so that all wiring is done. It’s best not to tinker with it after construction. Kind Regards, Bruce "Building...

Hey guys, I am doing a House and Land Package with Eden Brae and it has 2 separate contract for land and construction. If you did H&L package , did you have to apply for a single loan with full amount of land and construction? Or, you guys had a loan application for land and separate applicatio...

Anyone has idea on the 600*600 mm tiles prices from Di Lorenzo. I am assuming default for lifestyle series is 450*450? Also, anyone has brochure or any sample images of 450*450 tiles of standard range. Thanks guys. It depends on whether you are going for a Matt tile or porcelain tile. Prices are di...

Thanks Bruce - do you have any photos of the wall? We are currently in construction so don’t have any photos yet but James Treble said that he would chose Gemini Silver over Winter Ice due to the fact that that Gemini Silver would look better with furniture and make the room more welcoming.

So I’m super confused with wall colours! I’m undecided between Gemini Silver and Winter Ice. We initially went with Marble Mist, but I think it’s got too much beige and our tiles/laminate are more grey. Any recommendations or guidance would be much appreciated! :) if you have any photos of the same...
We chose Gemini Silver for our home and we are glad we did. It’s easy to go with most of the furniture. Kind Regards, B...
