Yep we're pretty happy with the build quality. They've started on the remaining items and hopefully they will be all fixed soon and we'll be in!
We've found an electrician who seems on the ball for a great price (PM me if you're interested in his details). We're planning to have all the upstairs downlights, fans, external lighting, entry feature light and pendant lights installed in-between handover and actually moving in. Apparently we avoid a lot of dust if we do it this way, and we get to move into a finished home
For our entry feature, we are getting a Senorita 3 Pendant Light, and for Kitchen pendants we are getting three matching Senorita 1 Pendant Lights. For over the stairs, as it's so close to the entry feature light anyway, we are just having a single downlight installed. Hopefully they all tie in with the wood floors and handrails
We are preparing for our electrical appointment (it is now being done directly with H&H). I know a sparky that can do electrical work for us post handover. How did you go about getting H&H to wire up things up for you to install later. I am particularly interested in down lights, external lights and security camera/sensors
Not sure how relevant it will be considering if they have now changed and do it with HHH directly rather than at the Clipsal office but I can tell you what we arranged.
We ended up with 16 batten holder light points which we will put on light fittings later, as 27 were included as standard we received a credit back of $550. We have 43 downlights of which 32 were included (we selected the extra 20 for the inclusions package) so ended up being $1650, 2 fluro lights in the garage at $330 for both.
We kept switches as per standard so no cost. Added on an additional 21 power points at $1155, added 3 external power points at $315, extra two TV points at $170 and an extra 8 data points at $1000.
We put in an extra heat/light/fan combo in the powder room at $560 for ducted. We also had them put in wiring and extra noggins for 6 ceiling fans at $450. Pre wiring done for an additional 2 outdoor lights at $170.
Looking back at it now I think we have a huge amount of lights, you'll probably be able to see our house from space! Also not sure if we needed so many extra data points but all selected now so no going back
