I am so scared of how insect and heavy rain will slip through the hole and than my whole frame structure will crumble. Thats what I was worried. The silicon will fill-in the hole and seal ...

I made the assumption that we do our colours appointment before paying the 5% so that we have a firm price of the build before paying any significant amount of money. Is that not the case? I have to say paying over 25k when I frankly have no real idea how much i'm up for at colours is enough to put...
For Colour Studio, just prepare about 50K for Mid range finishing and about 100K for Top range, but minimum will be spe...

Are you building in QLD or NSW? The Madison is different depending on location We're going with the Madison - the Sheridan wouldn't fit on our block otherwise I'd likely have chosen it. Our plan was to turn the WIP/laundry into a long laundry, then convert Bed 5 into a bigger WIP and increase the s...

The builder does not agree, he said I can only build 30sq house = total 244sqm floor space. I think I will go to a different builder. https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/84758_1539213331.jpg Who is the builder? The builder using old information.

Please let me know because the builder insists max floor area is 244sqm. (excluding void, stairs garage etc) - 2 builders have advised me that. But another builder told me I can build up to 270sqm floor area (excluding void, stairs etc). I prefer to build a bigger home if I can. Dont worry about 24...
Dont worry about 244 or 270. Try find 33sqm house. Thats your guidelines.
