Well termites can’t chew through a concrete path that’s properly chaulked. Concrete path also helps drain moisture away from your footing to avoid slab movements.

My architect basically had strip drains along the entire perimeter then buried it in pebbles so you can’t see it. Water falls right through so drains still function fine. The strip drains are slightly lower than the concrete path so after pebbles the whole thing finishes flush. https://uploads.tapat...

Their webpage looks impressive enough and apparently they supplied timber to RMIT etc. Seems legit to me but DYOR.

I've intentionally steered clear from integrated dishwashers, worried about what happens if there are issues or changing it later down the track. Easy as to switch out a freestanding one, but an integrated one seems it'd require more effort to do so? There is no big difference apart from 4-6 screws...

Sounds like the landscaper (or whoever laid your finished surface outside the house) didn't pay any attention to the level of whatever path is outside your laundry and made it flush or close to flush. Couple that with inadequate drainage on the outside and you have a situation. If you ring your buil...

Got the keys today. Excited! House looks lovely. Pics soon! If you are doing a concrete path around the house, pay attention to your weepholes. I can see it's technically non-compliant as it is less than 150mm from unfinished ground. With concrete paving, it's 75mm which is actually impossible when...

I have discovered there is a lot of standing water at the base of my house footing in the front porch. If I remove the water, an hour later the water comes back as if I have a underground water well. I was told by the builder’s plumber that it’s cause by the service trench they dug to run mains wate...

hi guys, if you can help me that will be great. I am getting my first home build and the weep inserts are bit higher than the usual height. they suppose to be on a second brick from the slab but its on the third brick, does it causes a major problem, if so how can it be rectified? Check your engine...
Check your engineering drawings. The important thing is that your internal floor level is HIGHER than your DPC/weephole...

Project builder makes all the profits on “upgrades”. Custom builder gives you a realistic price instead of bate price. End of the day project builder likely to be cheaper.

If you design your power lines properly, you may not even need to install additional data lines, just add few more outlets, so you could use power line adapters to transmit data over your power network, e.g. https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Powerline-Starter-TL-PA4026-KIT/dp/B010Q29KRK Powerline adap...
From what I can understand, powerline Ethernet is crap. Too unreliable requiring regular resets. If it’s that good you ...

Old school huh. These days nobody uses Vic ash due to dimensional stability issues or lack there of. The standard for timber windows is western red cedar. Even though it’s a soft wood, cedar have unreal dimensional stability so you can open your windows all 4 seasons.

About 1-2mm. Dirt dust water can definitely get in. I can even see a little bit of what looks like support leg inside. Is that right?

You will be fine. It’s AS standard. Even garage floor have a load rating of 250kg/m2 and your car won’t sink into earth.
