Hi Sam_Syd oh wow your plan looks great!! Great idea about having the void over the top if you don't need so many bedrooms! We raised our ceiling upstairs to 2.6m, but if you have that void I guess that's already like a really tall ceiling! Oh far out, your site cost is a lot!! From what i have read...

Hi Bean 1969, ducted aircon is included in sapphire but most people end up upgrading the aircon as the one offered can only run either downstairs or upstairs only. No idea about eaves, we forgot to add it on for our build; would have like some in front of the garage. We're not getting security scree...

Thanks for the advice! hmm yeah i might have to think about this one. Oh how come you demolished before DA approval? Our builder said if going thru DA we have to wait for approval to come first as they don'w know how long it will take. But as we're going with CDC they said it is upto us and that it...

Do not demo until you have DA or CDC approved. We did KDR. We had to do our own demo as builder will not organise for us. (most of them don't) So we demo old house before receiving DA approval. Our land was empty for one and half years before building start Jan 2017. Our Council took one and half y...

Our worry was having 2 different coloured bricks and regretting doing so when it was actually built! I'm actually glad I didn't like the Hampton fascade as couldn't believe how expensive it was!!! It seems most others love it thou. Oh you have landscaper already? is he good? do you mind if i get his...

Oh, i have no idea what Hebel is, is that what comes with the Hampton fascade?? I like all brick look so we actually had trouble picking fascade as apart from the traditional one which wasn't recommended due to looking very 'meh', all others were not all brick. Oh are you getting the driveway done t...

Hi LOLZ! Oh that's a shame about ur CSC. Mine is great. emails and calls me with updates and very prompt in replying to my emails. I actually asked her if I should demolish before CDC approval is through, and she said she encourages us to wait, but that it's ultimately upto me. I am suprised that yo...

Be wary of the ‘hidden asbestos’ scam in Sydney. Its a confidence trick. Some demo companies may win your trust, commence the job, then find non existent hidden asbestos, send you a few fake photos whilst you are at work etc, and charge you extra $ to remove and dispose of it. Extra fiddly manual l...
Thanks for the heads up! yes I've heard of this kind of trick that some demo companies play!! we have booked in with co...

I wouldn't demolish a house until I had a contract to build a new one. You take away any bargaining position you have if the builder wants to raise price or if there is some condition you don't like. We do have a contract for a new home. Demo is not done by the builder so I have to organise it myse...

Sounds like you are organising the demo yourself? Have you put in your separate CDC for demolition? Remember you need time to get things disconnected, I think gas can take the longest? Personally I wouldn't rush things to get them done before christmas if its not going to work out, the demo might t...
Yup, demo has to be organised by myself, I'm building a project home and builder doesn't do it Yup have got the demo ap...

We are in the process of KDRB. We have been waiting for our builder to lodge our CDC for over a month. The stormwater design has finally come through and I'm told it will be lodged early next week. We are due to move out of our current place end of this month. I'm told about 4 weeks for CDC approval...

So we got the sapphire range and we also got the EOFY promotion; so all the kitchen appliances got upgraded to Miele appliances and got about 20k off the build pric...
