We are nearly finished building our Hoffman (Lifestyle range), having started the process mid last year, and seem to have been allowed whatever upgrades we asked for - I don't recall there being any restrictions when we began, but maybe I just was asking for different things?
We have a spa, double glazing, upgraded heating, stone benchtops, cat 4 bricks.. that said, no idea what shower screens we are getting.. hopefully we will see next week!
Lights are now all in, we have a door bell, benchtops have been installed, tv antenna is on and fly screens are being fitted today. Just the last bit of waterproofing, tiling and bathroom fit out to go I think!
congrats Pungentia!! its a beautiful design. it was the very first house we fell in love at first sight
now will have to go through your blog tonight to follow your journey. love that house.
we were dealing with PD around Apr/May 2013. It must have changed after that. that is a very good decision to let customer choose what they want in their house without any such restrictions.
