Can anyone fill me in about what we can do about problems that pop up after a couple of years????? We've been in our house for 2 years and I've just noticed that tiles along the shower wall are cracking in a semi circle shape. There's about 6 of them and when you push on them they move slightly. No...
It would be a warranty claim. Refer to this link - Link We had an issue with our aircon controller and we contacted Cor...

As I am prospecting with signing up with a project builder (plan build is tentatively on my short list, among other builders) I have one hour to talk to you about it (actually I could spend hours and hours no hassle at all). Can you PM me? Perhaps I can leave my phone number?

Has anyone build recently with PlanBuild in Brisbane north area. I couldn't find any bad reviews lately at all. Just wondering if they are good? We built with them over 12 months ago....if we could turn back time! Can you elaborate? What issues did you have? I am in the process of choosing a builder.

A single door of 2.8m is not hard to find - if you go to a garage door manufacturer! Tilt garage doors come in standard sizes up to far greater than 2.8m, and in all sorts of different modern and contemporary finishes, and can be finished on both sides. You could obviously go for the tilt mechanism...
No, no way.

We just built and have laminate throughout upstairs (no carpet anywhere). We were very worried about the noise, so put an acoustic underlay under the laminate and also soundscreen insulation between the floors. It is surprisingly quiet, much better than I was expecting. We don't really hear normal ...
Timber frame? Which design? What location did you build? Do you have photos of the end result?

Hi all, I am building in Brisbane. I haven't signed my prelim contract yet. Has anyone had engineered timber floors, or laminate timber floors, installed on the upper floor of a 2 story home? I am wondering: 1) It is noisy to walk on? 2) What flooring product did you choose? Any advice and experienc...

Hi All, I am building in Brisbane, QLD. I want to build with white bricks, and a white colorbond roof. The reason is, I want the house to be more energy efficient and be cooler in summer time, but I am struggling to envisage what that would look like as a combination of white roof and white bricks? ...

I am building a new 2 story home in QLD with a project builder. As per their standard design, to comply with the NCC windows to the upper floor are fitted with restrictors to stop the window opening more than 125mm. However I do not want this because I want maximum ventilation throughout the house. ...

I imagine the thickness of the wall needs to be thick enough to accomodate however many panels you have. In our case we decided against the cavity slider due the the extra wall space required Do you remember the thickness of each stacker sliding door? And do you remember the overall thickness requi...

Since the opening is adjacent to a hallway, I cannot afford to have any protrusion at all. I honestly think the only solution is a single cavity sliding door covering the entire span of 2.8 m So do that then. Seems like the easy choice to me. It's a bit early to be saying it's a simple choice. ID n...

Yes, the “problem” is 80cm for our bifold door. Since the opening is adjacent to a hallway, I cannot afford to have any protrusion at all. I honestly think the only solution is a single cavity sliding door covering the entire span of 2.8 m

Yes, we have 5 panels. When folded back completely, the stack is fairly thick, but these are external, double glazed doors. Internal doors should be a lot thinner. Which dimension is the 80cm you refer to? Is it the dimension that I marked as "problem " in my attachment in my last reply?

Incidentally, the diagrams you’ve shown are double doors, NOT bifolds. Bifolds concertina, so the door arcs are a lot smaller. In our case we decided against the cavity slider due the the extra wall space required and went for bifolds instead which worked better with our design. The opening is 4m, ...
I think the protrusion might be a problem when in the open position: So in your case, this distance was 80cm?

Ok, so far here are the options in the above replies. I'll break down the pro's and cons: Reducing the opening to 2.4 meters and using two 1.2 meter cavity Sliding Doors No, that's compromising the architecture and openness of the design. I don't want to do that if there is a solution to span the fu...
