Preparation for Tender

As we were coming up to our Tender appointment, we spent a lot of time going through our quote and the floor plan to make sure we had everything covered off.  One great source of information is the HomeOne forum, and in particular the topic on 'Things you Forget'.

One of the things that we hoped PD would be flexible on, was related to our floor.  We both wanted to avoid the beading / quad that goes onto a wooden floor when it is laid after the skirting board is already fitted. Unfortunately, this was the situation we found ourselves in. Our preference was for PD to have the skirting boards painted and tacked on, so they could be removed for the floor installers.

The dreaded bead
Aside from this, we needed to ensure all structural features were included. This included ceilings, doors, windows, cabinetry and floor plan alterations.  For us, these were:

* 2590mm ceilings
* Raked ceiling to the lounge
* Pivot front entry door with single side window
* Double Master Bedroom door
* Fully glazed door from ensuite to courtyard
* 1 x 5 leaf wooden bi-fold and 1 x 4 leaf wooden bi-fold
* Add the 'Kiama' facade windows to our 'Cape York' facade, in stained wood
* Wooden stained window frames around the Alfresco
* Aluminium sliding doors to the Rumpus
* 2 x internal cavity sliding doors for Rumpus and WIR for Bedroom 4
* 6 additional overhead cupboards in the laundry
* Extended benchtop to the laundry
* 4 x Additional overhead cupboards to the kitchen
* Oversize kitchen island
* 2 x cupboards above the fridge cavity
* Change 4 kitchen cupboards to 4 pot drawers
