We're building with Eden Brae- Livingston 23 and currently at the Tender stage.
I've noticed that the wet areas have a 3cm (approx) step up in many displays homes.
Has anyone recessed their wet areas so they become flush with the rest of the house? Meaning, recessing our slab to accommodate the wet areas. So when the tilers lay the screed for the floor tiles there won’t be a 3cm step up. I totally think is worth it as it creates such a seamless look between the wet areas and the rest of the home! Eden Brae is currently charging $1800. Our Tender Consultant can't guarantee that all areas would be the same level once titles and carpets are laid. So I'm hesitant in going through the recessed floors. I would love to know if anyone has gone through this or can offer any other solution.

Our builder included this at no charge for our place - it is worth noting though that I actually think it is going to end up a step down into our wet areas once we put carpet in that side of the house - as they drop it so it is pretty much level once complete with the existing slab. I personally do love the look of it - but I would be interested to get measurements of how high your carpet and underlay are as they may absorb the 3cm?

We're doing this right now with our Eden Brae Drysdale 27 - they added about $1200 to our contract for the three wet areas (ensuite, bathroom and laundry) to be recessed by 50mm, so after door coverings are installed they will be flush
