In Sydney I think MDJ are slooow in admin stage... they are but similar time as Masterton. Its Mastertons build time that lets them down. i got a sense of that as well when the sales agent kept saying that their focus is on quality so may take extra time to deliver. You could ask here what the usua...

I forgot to post what I went for - I went for a local landscaper who quoted $7.3k. Now build all finished, I will have to move it after fence done.

Another one I noticed in design is ...it's states Porch SLAB poured part of Driveway ? Is that normal... I thought like outdoor alfresco the slab will be part of Main slab.

Surely it can’t beat the new Cordless Dyson on each floor. We've got a Dyson V10 downstairs and a Xiaomi Roborock S50 upstairs....

or instead save tons of money and get yourself a couple of vac robots instead. They are very good those days. Ducted vacuums will be gone really soon, same as TV antenna, same as phone lines - those are good things to NOT put into a new build. Give some second thinking re NBN too as with 5G Mobile ...
Unlikely you are going to get a unlimited plan on 5G any time near future as they won't allow it as it will choke the n...

If anybody successfully finished any projects with Raspberry Pi or Arduino - share it here. How to do it and components and little guidance too. I'm interested in it but not a programming or coding expert, but have done small scale like getting Kodi on Pi for HT etc..

We are just about to start our 2nd build and are still referring back to this page, it's a goldmine! One little thing that is a big deal to me is the grout in the tiles. I am not sure if it's just me but I definitely prefer smaller grout lines, and as usual, if it's not mentioned and in the contrac...

@mpricecs Beautiful your house after the landscaping finished. Glad to see a finished work almost similar to ours (Grange 29, St.Kilda and frontage -slope etc). I have been thinking about doing landscaping similar way. Curious to know how much it cost for front landscaping including the fencing?

Wow. So an FYI regarding Clipsal Warranty process... Downlight has died... had to lodge a claim with Clipsal which is going to take them 1-2 weeks to assess then they book in an electrician to come out, inspect and replace the downlight! If we move it from it’s location ourselves we void the warran...

The product we got in our quote 'SkyFi' was being upgraded so we are still waiting. We only had one main control unit downstairs installed. We could have had the second control unit hard wired in upstairs but then we could not have the SkyFi option (it's either one or the other). There are several ...
If this Link is the one - its just controller i think.

We finished our clipsal appointment. Can anyone confirm do we have to pay again for sparky for owner supplied Led downlights or fans or anything?? Clipsal already charged us $89 I think but somewhat that price need to check papers. So you mean you already asked Clipsal to do ur donwlights? And you ...

Hi s-X-S, My initial plan was to do nothing or bare mininum with clipsal and do everything with sparky onsite with cash and post hand over for lights. My only worry is that the sparky onsite might quote the same cost as clipsal or higher because they know I cant go back to clipsal and request a var...

Hi s-x-s I have the same thought of doing all electricals after hand over. However, how did you go with power points and data points? It's a bit of a hassle fitting them after hand over since you need to climb up the roof and fish wire it down the wall cavities. It's still possible i think. But you...

If your house is double storey and you want downlight - you will have to do it at this appointment. Single storey too you can do , but if you want to save money and have an electrician you know you can do post handover (may be about for half the money any builder offer). And if you decide to it aft...
