Beautiful house @doosra!
Its amazing you sorted so much out so quickly! We are one month in, and still landscaping is yet to start, TV cabinets yet to go in.
Do you mind me asking where are your TV cabinets from?

Thanks.
Yeah it's been pretty hectic trying to get as much done as possible. Concreting will finish mid this week and then I can start ordering and laying grass. I just started planting trees in the front yard yesterday, magnolia little gems and some japanese maples.

Got my front gate measured and ordered as well and security doors and flyscreens in the coming week as well. Just the final landscaping and it'll be pretty much ready to go.

Tv unit is ikea. I didn't want to spend 2-3k for a custom one so I'm very happy with the ikea one especially for what it cost. Less than $500.

Beautiful home doosra!
I’m impressed that you’ve gotten so much sorted already, and all those house plants- wow!
We still haven’t wall mounted our TVs


Your home is so beautiful, congratulations you really did a fantastic job! I love your floor tiles. May I ask what they are called? I assume they were an upgrade!
Thanks
Floor tiles were purchased outside of wisdom and tiled ourselves not wisdom. They're called concretissyma matiz grigio

Found another one. I got white vanity cabinets in the other bathrooms. I should have upgraded to poly as you can tell it's not the best quality. The charcoal color in the photo though is laminate but turned out really nice. And also, probably should have made the showers bigger. In 2 bathrooms they are 930 x 930. Pretty tight.


Would 1350x930 work??

What insulation and aircon configuration did you opt for?




1350 is a decent size. I'm in love with my ensuite shower. It's 2020 x 1230 and it's amazing. So much space!

I went with standard insulation and for the ac I got the esp plus with 5 zones.

For those who just moved in @PriyaSuresh11 @singalg @doosra @JeniferMarie @Kvav27 or anyone else who shifted recently how long does it take from PCI to handover?
We are with CommBank.

No nbn. I'm getting cable connection but problem is that my land was on a big block which had a house and was subdivided. My land doesn't have a connection to the pit so now they need to send someone out to connect my house up. Think I'll be without internet for a while. Makes me question now whether I should be paying wisdom for some nbn provision I remember seeing in the contract

Question on NBN FTTP Set up, what have you done

From the sounds of it Wisdom will put the NBN NTD device in the garage as per requirements from NBN.

I was thinking of putting a patch panel under the stairs storage and run all data points to the house from there. Was also thinking of putting a network switch and NAS at the same place to service the house

Any other suggestions?

They didn't put anything in mine.


Do you have NBN in your area? How are you accessing internet in the new house?

Thanks Yes through Wisdom.

Looks absolutely amazing @doosra

In the entry way do you have lights in the ceiling or only in the niche ?

Hate to ask, top 3 regrets(if you are okay to share)?

Thanks


Yep lights in niche. Hmm one regret is not getting alarm remotes added and garage integrated into the keyfob. Only downside is I need to pay a Call out fee and cost and extra 120 bucks. Otherwise quite happy with the build. Maybe a light batton connection for above the garage so it comes on when I drive my car in. That's really it so only minor so overall very happy.
