No - if the frames up absolutely not. Having said that, I have known builders to cut in the ceiling battens between the bottom chords on the trusses to gain an extra height but I wouldn't recommend going down that path. I'm sure the builder wouldn't contemplate it.

I wasn't putting down your concerns in any way if it came across as that. Most builders / carpenters will work on a 2745 pitching height for a truss roof layout. Some builders will use a 35mm bottom plate with a slab type construction, making the p/p 2735. Ceiling battens are nominally 35mm plus 10m...

To my mind there is no tolerance. If the plans show a FCL at 2.74 then that is what it needs to be. Often with a truss roof construction the pitching point will be at 2745 ( bottom chord of the truss ) which, with ceiling battens & plaster will end up at a 2700 ceiling level. If this was to be t...

Without knowing the extent of the structural involved it would be impossible to answer. You need to get a second & third fee proposal before deciding.

The opening will most likely have a lintel over it supporting roof loads. If you keep the same overall width as the existing frame (or smaller) then there shouldn't be any issue.

There are clauses in part 4 of the Victorian Building Regulations relating to overlooking & overshadowing neighbours windows and 'private open spaces'. These should have been taken into account for the building application approval. If you have concerns the local council will have a copy of the ...

Sounds like you've got all bases covered. I assume the door has felt strips on the sides & a bottom seal. Possibly not practical but an air gap between the poly & the metal on the door would increase the thermal efficiency plus heat will readily transfer through any metal exposed to the insi...

40mm polystyrene has a value of around R1.0 to R1.2 which will help but will most likely only slow down the heat build up. Definitely insulate the ceiling with something around R5 (depending upon your location). Wall insulation should be if possible R2.5 but will be an expensive project to install. ...

In Victoria you can do a search by name on the VBA website 'practitioner search'. I assume the various states have similar. Again in vic each practitioner has a registration card with their photo on it & the registration expiry date.

The first block sounds the better. Living areas with the majority of glass facing north. As you said minimal windows (or none) to the west. Smaller & minimum amount of windows to the east only to capture morning sun -

I would take your sketch drawing to a Building Designer or Architect & have the plans drawn up with the sandstone façade. If the room sizes are basically what you are looking at make the relevant notes on your drawing. Copyright breach is a serious thing but the layout you have shown is not unus...

Additional items you will need to look at - Soil test & report; slab or footing design; site plan with overlooking & overshadowing details; reflected ceiling plan; structural wall bracing layout.

Pawel the maximum height if within the boundary setback is 4500 but the average overall height is 3500. The length of total structures along the boundary is 9 meters, so if there are any existing sheds etc they will need to be taken into account. From memory you were only allowed to build on 50% of ...
