Didnt get plumbing done. --> Insulation and Plasterers waiting on plumber to finish his work. --> House got broken in. Some...

Hey mate - what sort of freebies did you get - I got nothing - I didn;t negotiate hard enough. However we did not have to pay for going over time. We negotiated extra time to start. That was free. Also, with the Provisionals - when do they charge us these? I got a credit back for one. Not sure abou...

Yup, there are always good and bad reviews. Hopefully everything works out well for you. Build process is tedious, but worth it, especially when its all done. You know exactly what's going in where in your house. Good Luck Raj

Hi all I am looking at the fencing options and really like the look of the fence shown in the pic below. I am considering this for my front fence and around the house will be the usual colorbond fence with black posts (estate requirements). The front fence can be a max of 1.2m high. So I am thinking...

Its not late. Better to get one now than never. There are lot of independent inspectors mentioned on this forum. You can probably do a search for that. I used Alex from Urban Inspections. -> 0411709366. He is pretty good. charges $460. Good luck

I could be wrong - but I don't think there was any wrapping done for my house.... I know that the wrapping isn't there as I can see large sections from the inside of the house where I can see the wood, and then the brick. I presume it would be between these? BTW; I didn't get sarking either though ...
When you say 'large sections', do you mean just particular areas or throughout your house? The foil wrapping goes betwe...

rjg, that's the must for any house these days. It's the foil wrapping to go with insulation. Your engineering drawings would clearly say which areas will be wrapped and which will not be. Usually the external garage walls aren't wrapped. I would be surprised if yours haven't been wrapped

We are past the frame stage now, almost lockup. most of the frame issues have been fixed and few others were deemed not to be fixed. I agreed with those. The plasterboards and the cornices are here. SS informed me the plasterboards go in this week. Cant wait till weekend to check it out. SS also inf...

Thanks Stormy. Not sure whether I would have to get the trenching done considering Telstra isnt going to provide service to new estate. I will have to confirm this. your argument about the driveway makes sense. I guess I can delay that till after handover. but definitely looking at getting teh fence...

Morning all We are almost towards the lockup stage and our SS informed me that he is ok if we want to do the fencing and the driveway before the handover (not a part of my build package). I am thinking this is a good idea since I will have these things ready before I move in. Planning to get this do...

Wow !! that's going to look awesome. I had similar plans ( although the laminate flooring use is your original :-) ). We dont have an alfresco at the moment, so was going to use the Stratco one as base setup and then 'modify' it to give it a timber look. Keep us posted with how you go. Good luck

Like laying a deck but in the other way up. :) Nice idea, humble. "Like laying a deck" --> would you have "beams" running under your alfresco roof and then nail the laminate flooring ? Interested in hearing how you plan to do this. The final product is going to look good. Good l...
