We currently have standard Raked bricks for our two story house, but if we upgrade to a flush surface brick there will be a upgrade about $1000. We plan in the future to render (side with bag and paint), should we upgrade to a flush surface brick so when we render in the future, less material is use...

This is our block which has a 'H' Class. :( We also have some rocks and still waiting for our builder's cost on the extra piers The neighbor has a bore because of the water underneath the rocks, which mean more likely we have similar rocks in our block, the water taste beautiful though.

We are aware of the Queensland Development Code, just to give you some back ground info of our proposal. For the queensland code, its set back is based on MOP not to the wall, so for our block 12.5m, we can have only up to 1.4m set back (includ eaves), but we have a 1.6m set back which mean by the t...

Yeah I agreed. We managed to get a couple of things in lieu of the changes instead (extension of the Media room) at the end of the day, we are happy with the plan and we happy they allow us to make the changes (not like some big project builder).

How depth is your house. I guess you will need to have your garage at the front of the house? With the council we in, they are not allow to have the garage to dominate the front of the house, therefore a balcony is required. Did you have the same issue? We in Brisbane (south east Brisbane). Anyway, ...

We had to cut our house by about 20 sqm. We are paying about $780 per sqm, but instead we only getting back at $350 per sqm. Is this fair? the builder claim to deduct off GST and labour, but when we ask to add new thing, they charge a full price!

For a biger house, our builder suggest t...

We belong to Redland City Council (south east of queensland), but in order to get our plan through, the builder suggest to go with the Queensland's code - which mean the eave is part of the house when it comes to set back (but they will accept smaller set back). I will double check with the council....

Yeah, the block we have is not in any new estate , so we didn't have to meet any requirement for the size of the eave, except we have to satisfy the local council when it comes Development Application. But we rather keep the small eave instead of having a cut the house by 200mm. I agree with To-do-l...

I haven't come across with house that have small eaves before and not sure how it will turn out? Also would you s...
