Your quote for downlights is just about the same if you go for external electrician so just consider the brand/quality of LED downlights you like. I also did it outside of NLH but engaged Jade electrical which is their electrician.
We are building in box hill - north west area.
I had the same feeling about driveway and it's good to know that you were able to do it in 6k. It will be a saving for us too.
On the downlights I had the same view, to buy it online or wherever I can get a better quality for the same price or lower and engage Jade to save us the hassle. How much did Jade charge you for installation if you remember?
Will wait to see if anyone had any comments on merits of doing the flooring on our own.
I spoke to our consultant post my post and she has confirmed that we can do these 3 items on our own.
On flooring she said some people are able to get it done cheaper and some spend more than what NLH have provisioned. Guess depends if you know any tiler or have any contacts.
I am inclined to give it a go...it may not be cheaper but we may be able to get better quality.
Thanks again and good luck to you with your build.
