I literally sold everything I could, from removable things even to fixed things like the front door and garage, back shed, paving etc. Paid for about 50% of the demolition! Don't be scared to just put it ALL on facebook marketplace & gumtree, and see who gets interested, you'll be surprised at w...

I'd say save your money for the new house and go further out. You only really need to technically visit the site once during each major stage of construction, anything more often is just to satisfy your excitement and curiosity.

I'd actually go the option you haven't considered - the wall opposite the windows. Just make sure you've got block out roller blinds to avoid reflections. this having it here gives the best flexibility with the room, & allows everything to be centered properly. And you still have room on sides ...

Looks amazing. Those doors would have cost you a fortune https://forum.homeone.com.au/viewtopic.php?t=86597 D777 a small fortune, yes. how much extra were the doors if you don't mind me asking? I can't find them on Humes website anymore not sure if they're discontinued or a specialty order item

there's nothing wrong with doing it with todays modern gas heaters, however the main consideration is TV height. Optimal TV height is where your eye level while sitting down is exactly 1/3rd of the way up the TV height. For a 75inch TV this means the bottom of the TV needs to be about 80cm off the g...

In my last house I had the tv wall mounted , and then an electric 110 inch projcetor screen up on the roof that came down in front of the tv. Allowed for best of both worlds, TV/living for normal use, then the projector for gaming and movies at nights

Essentially the issue is...

hey guys, those who built a designer spec house, just wondering how much you spent on upgrades once you signed a contract with M? We have a quote that includes some things, but know we will probably want to change a bit once it comes time to go through the finer details, so just wondering what kind ...
