Thanks so much Brad, so do you think we are best to sketch what we want, and then work with clipsal to distribute our allocated lights and $3000 budget throughout?
Yes. I do think going in prepared with a sketch is best. We had $300 change from an allowance of $6K when we did our clipsec; but then we didn't like their fans or exterior lights and so spent another $1.8 K on these.If there are electrical items that you want to install after the build its probably best to have the wiring put in place now. For example, I have wiring to two battens at the rear of the house that I will convert over to LED flood lights after we have moved in.
Thats great, thank you. I have done my plan to include eveyrhting we want. Im then going to say to clipsal "this is what we want, these are our inclusions, this is our 3k additional budget. Please help us best make the most of our money and we will do the rest after "
