(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Picking your external lighting - Ok one of the up down lights died just before the photo 🀣 here's my 3 stages when I'm selecting my external lighting. I'll also note my external lighting is selected really early, usually when I'm designing the facade at this stage I also sketch the landscaping over the site and elevation plans: . 1) Fristly I determine where functional lighting will be required, usually on the site plan with the landscape plan overlayed. This is closely followed by adding lighting for aesthetic purposes, casting shadows and illuminating areas (my next design will have a lot more lighting on trees and plants, looking forward to it). . 2) I then start roaming through lighting websites (Beacon Lighting is usually my first go to) at this stage I'm picking the look, heights and levels of illumination. Sketch the illumination and heights early on. . 3) Finally I look into switches and sensors, I'm a big fan of sensors great deterrent for thieves and also can reduce pest infestation. The light attracts bugs, attracting spiders 😟, sensors ensure the lights are not always on. I also enjoy walking/ driving up to my front facade and the house lighting up. . Side note I always use warm lighting, the cool lighting is usually installed within wet areas, however, some people love it. If you have any tips please share within the comments for everyone. Are you a warm or cool lighting person? 😊 . πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Under Staircase Space/ Storage - Underneath your staircase you'll find space that can be utalised, I often find the space enclosed when an opportunity to increase the floor area by 2-3m2 is missed. Here's 3 common examples of what you can do with the space, hopefully this helps those designing and planning, if you've completed construction you can still make use of the space as the area is usually not structural: . * If adjacent to a pantry - Put your cabinetry into the space, usually pull out drawers. Depending on the staircase orientation you could possibly fit a small wine cellar. . * If adjacent to a foyer/ entry - Use the space for cabinetry, enclose it with a door for storage space, have the space left completely open for bikes, school bags or to be used has a mud room alcove. . * If adjacent to a powder room/ bathroom - Often I use the space to extend portions of a powder room into the space, just be careful with heights. . Using these small spaces can make the design phase extremely exciting for me, especially visualising how the space will be used. Continue to be mindful with your designs, I've flipped staircases to make use of the space, however, there's lots of factors to consider, I've opened risers to bring more light into a foyer for natural lighting as the staircase was on the northern elevation preventing me from enclosing the space for storage. .

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Pier Stage Tips - Scaffold Shade Cloth - Whenever someone builds close to an adjoining lot/ neighbour I recommend they request for 'shade cloth' to be fixed to their scaffold (please note this should only be carried out by a licensed scaffolder, as shade cloth adds additional loads to the scaffold and isn't as simple as it may appear). . What does it do? * Major reason for myself is it provides a barrier to prevent falling objects. . * Possible fall protection for those onsite, the shade cloth is required to be of a particular integrity (refer to 'safework'), commonly reinforced with chainwire. . * Minimises the chance of mortar, paint and/ or render from leaving your site damaging neighbouring properties. . * Provides a shaded environment for your trades. Some shade cloth may provide UV protection. . * Improves onsite privacy and improves privacy for neighbouring lots. . Many builders will charge you for this as an additional extra due to site conditions. If they don't, it's possible that the cost is rolled into every house regardless if it's required or not OR it may not be seen as required for your lot, you can always request it though. I'd always recommend it whether you or someone else is building, it's never nice to leave yourself or your project open to damaging your neighbours home, garden, landscaping or vehicle 😊 .

(Intermediate) Gravy Train 101 – Pier Stage Tips - I've received some feedback requesting more construction stage/ planning tips for those trying to owner build or improve their build journey, please keep the request coming πŸ‘ really helps me to post more helpful content. This is more for Bulk Concrete Piers (Standard Piers). . * Staging - Various orders, however, commonly; pegout, excavation, piers, formwork followed by internal drainage πŸ‘ (if you have screw piers you might be asked for formwork first). . * After Marking Out - Check if the markings match your engineers, if you have a rainwater tank ensure there's piers marked AND make sure portico, balcony, pergola piers/ columns have piers marked below them, sounds odd, but I've seen them missed in the past. . * Before Pier Boring (for Owner Builders/ Builders) - Ensure you've booked your pier inspections, this can be one of your most challenging bookings, rain days can be tough. The common inspectors you may need to contact are; Certifier (Council or Private Certifier), Engineer and possibly a water coordinator if you're building adjacent to or over sewer mains. Some days I've spent mornings calling everyone to cancel and rebook haha. Side note check if piers to have reo in them, have reo. You'll know which ones by checking your engineer plans. . Upon Boring - Try and be there or have someone attend to measure the pier bores with your concretor, more applicable if you're being charged per linel metre. This is to ensure when the invoice is exchanged there's no surprises and no questions πŸ‘ remember this person may also be doing your slab. . After Pour - Keep your pier inspection certificate in a safe place you'll receive this from your engineer. You may be required to provide this to your certifier at a later date. . * If it's your first time - Don't stress, it's pretty easy to work out where your piers need to be, just look for a legend and any boxed notes. Rule of thumb your piers will usually run around the perimeter and along internal beams at roughly at 1.5m - 1.8m centres. . Please feel free to share your lessons learnt from experience or feel free to ask a question 😊 #happybuilding at Sydney, Australia

(Intermediate) Gravy Train 101 – Window Delivery – We’re all human, including the person who drew your plans, the person who ordered your window and doors and the manufacturer that produced your windows and doors. Murphy’s Law, I often think, β€œchecklist or cheque book” haha β€œyour pick Gravy”, when the window and external door delivery arrives here’s the 6 things I check and do: . * I check all is delivered, call the manufacturer and then email the manufacturer if anything has not arrived. These can turn out to cost you some big bickies in delays. Next time consider the delivery time cost when comparing quotes. . * I take a Stanley knife and take my keys cable tied to the windows and doors, not the best if someone takes your external sliding door keys, some builders will have the keys sent to them and will provide them to you at settlement. . * Check your windows and doors are the right configuration. You may have a sliding door that opens from the wrong direction or you may have a sliding window that should be an awning window. . * Check windows are as ordered for example; window colour, obscure glazing, upgraded locks/ handles, @goopguys protection, pine reveals etc. . * Check you have the rubber sills at the bottom external side of the windows, such a small thing, this is to sit on your brick/ hebel sill. Check it’s exposed after your brick clean. Causes delays at Final Occupation Inspection stage. . * I check which windows should have shorter reveals for tiled or square set reveals, I spray paint the reveals with yellow spray paint to flag the Carpenter that need to be trimmed. . If anyone has any more tips or if someone would like some more tips around this sort of thing, please feel free to comment of DM. #happybuilding #gravycheckorchequebook . #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – 3 Lessons Learnt in this Kitchen - Happy to share what I learnt in designing and building this space πŸ‘ . * For Builders - Check measure your windows if they're within a space with benchtops 😣 I had two of them, check measured at frame stage, I didn't check at brickwork, the brickie moved the windows to suit his brickwork. Unbelievable. . * For Designers - Be open to design advice, this kitchen was redrawn and re-sketched multiple times. Golden rules for myself are the standard triangle from sink, stove and fridge, however, I also try to ensure the fridge and cutlery draw is close to the dining area and the microwave, oven and cooktop are close to clear bench space. . * For Husbands - Do NOT pick colours! don't try and get involved, I tried to pick the colours for this kitchen, my wife randomly brings the colours up whenever we pick colours still, apparently my selection wasn't dark enough, 6 yrs later 🀣 seriously. .

Building Complaints List by State - Checking contracts, tenders and variations I've found double ups, possible future charges and errors, for the most I don't believe any builder has done this on purpose. You may have a complaint pre-site, during or post construction. The following list may be of assistance to you. Naturally communicating your concerns and issues with your builder should be your first call, however, if you feel you need something clarified or reviewed you may need some assistance. . It would be great if you share your experiences as well as who was of assistance to you 😊 . NSW Department of Fair Trading . ACT Fair Trading ACT - Complaints .

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Electrical Padmount Substation - I lined up once and asked a guy which blocks he's interested in and he said "not the ones everyone else is after", turns out he was an investor looking to buy, build and hold. For him the blocks with easements and substations were what he was after. . Not for everyone, but what does it actually mean build wise? The padmounts are within easements which means there's restrictions on the use of the land. For the most part the restrictions are to either to ensure building materials within the zones of influence comply with fire rating levels, are not made of metal or within the outer zones, restricting pools or spas within the area burdened. . Can I site my home to suit a substation? Yes, if you’re considering building on a block burdened with a padmount, I would consider siting your home with the garage on the side with the substation, reason being you’ll find you may already need to setback your garage from the front boundary. You may also find corner blocks with padmounts, ideally, you’d fence off the substation (not colorbond) and have your home sited towards the opposite end, losing rear yard. . Most recently I’ve found restrictions being placed on a greater are of blocks prohibiting spas and pools. Just something to be mindful of. . Would be great if someone shares their substation stories with us all. If you have any query please feel free to comment below or DM. .

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – CCTV Tips - A few weeks back I had some uninvited guests check my car doors, front door and gates. I wouldn't have known unless I had CCTV. . Here's the five major things to consider if you're about to install CCTV: * Ensure the quality of your cameras facing the street are the best possible, you'll be wanting the cameras to pick up on facial features, what they're wearing and car registration if possible. * Cover all external access places, you may need a minimum of 4 cameras whilst also considering how you can obtain a face shot. * Position your cameras in places that cannot be disturbed, high up on a parapet wall, eave or within a secure position (behind a gate). * Speak to an installer prior to construction, some installers charge smaller fees if able to roughin at frame stage. * Determine where you'll install your monitor and DVR (the equipement that stores and records everything), you'll possibly need data points and powerpoints to this area. . If you're considering installing CCTV within your place, google some installers or speak to your builder for a consultation meeting as soon as possible. If you have any queries please feel free to comment or private message πŸ‘ all questions are welcome 😊 . #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Additional Costs at Piers - At times, below ground, some additional costs may be unforeseeable and therefore charges to continue construction are passed onto the client (Check your contract πŸ‘). . Here's the five most common forseeable and unforeseeable additional costs you may come across relating to piers: * Inadequate bearing pressure - upon drilling your piers they may find they need to drill further to hit grounds of adequate pressure. * Hitting rock - if you hit rock, each of your piers may need to extend down to also hit rock. * Building adjacent to or over sewer - when building near a sewer main you may find you're required to extend past the 'zone of influence' of that sewer main. * Building near a pool or retaining wall - similar to building near a sewer main, you may need to extend your piers below the zone of influence. * Soft collapsing/ moisture or water table - there's a few scenarios where you may need alternative construction methods, possibly screw piers, blade piers, bucket piers or possibly sleeving. These are all subject to onsite findings. . Due to sites becoming a lot smaller (sewer mains being closer to homes) and being filled (developers trying to level out and fill in ponds), unfortunately alternative construction practices are becoming a lot more common. It's always best to discuss with the deceloper if theres any potential risk of being within these situations prior to purchasing your block or atleast with your builder. . If you have any questions please feel free to leave them in the comments, a private message is also welcome. . #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Do you have Rock Onsite? - I've had a few queries regarding rock notes and allowances within contracts. Unfortunately there's no great way of identifying how much rock you'll encounter onsite due to rock being under the surface of your natural ground. Rock can be a very unwelcoming surprise that you may only find after you've site started (can be anywhere around 5-10k on a surprise rock job, when forseeable possibly a lot more on a standard build). A few things to note, not all rock found onsite is the same e.g. some types of rock can be broken down and used as fill, others will require the builder to remove it all from site and may import fill to suit. . Here's a few tips that may assist you in identifying if you may have rock onsite: * Picture above, rock has been found by the developer and stockpiled. * Next few pictures you'll find what are commonly refered to as 'rock outcrops', you may find little rocks and even some bigger pieces of rock in the mix. * Borehole/ Geotechnical Report, this is a report that you can order (generally engineers can supply them), unfortunately they usually only spot test 2-4 places which can sometimes be lucky misses or 'floaters' (floaters are one off big rocks found onsite, the rest of your site might be fine). * The area, some areas are well known to have rock onsite. . Rule of thumb, if concerned drive around the area of your build, if there's rock you'll eventually see it around the neighborhood. Also visit your site prior to purchasing it. It's a great idea to visit the site whilst they're developing as they dig dip for surfaces and benching of the sites. If there's rock you may very well see it at this stage. Gravy tip - make an allowance in your contract if you feel rock mighy be present or have a means of funding the encounter. When onsite regardless of who the builder is you'll unfortunately likely need to press on otherwise all works will stop. I'm always open for questions, there's a few people that are also willing to jump on a comment and share their experience or insight. If in doubt ask your builder or even comment below πŸ‘ . #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” at North Kellyville

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Home Gyms - Here's my must haves if you're thinking of having a home gym setup. My weights are always within an extension to the Garage (upon resell I name the space 'Workshop' πŸ˜‰) cardio areas are always inside a spare room πŸ‘ my go to standard items 😊: . * Weight areas pick up some impact mats (Note they're 1m x 1m) "go heavy or go home".. wait πŸ€”. * Powerpoints 😣 you may want to have a fan and some music, good idea is to figure out where your equipement will be before you get to site πŸ‘ (imagine having a low battery whilst doing cardio 😦) * Mirror(s), I spare a wall near my squat rack, ask the builder to a custom one up πŸ‘Œ I've been fortunate in the past where my cardio room was a spare bedroom with mirrored robe doors πŸ“Έ * Space to put all the equipement not in use (e.g. plates, attachments, dumbbells..), becareful with the space, tight areas can create high risk areas for injuries. * Fresh air and natural light, if possible openable windows or external doors, huffing and puffing is no fun in a stuffy room. * It's a good idea if you're able to take note of where the space is located and if you need acoustic insulation, especially for those that workout whilst everyone is asleep or if you simply dont want to disturb everyone with your workout music and grunting 🀣 . Rule of thumb, like most spaces, consider where everything will be and how you'll use and store everything. Share your ideas πŸ‘ #openforquestions. Oh yeah one last idea!

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 - Lockable Cavity Sliding Doors - Had to share this photo πŸ“Έ a fellow instagramer asked (based on my last door hardware post) what brand lockable cavity sliding door (CSD) hardware I've used in the past. I've only used a keyed CSD lock on an internal garage access door before 😊 and here's a picture of it πŸ‘ it's pretty hard to explain what it looks like and how it works without a picture 🀣 I use @assabloyau AKA 'Lockwood' for my keyed CSD door hardware 😊 there isn't many manufacturers that supply a keyed CSD system. Gravy tip - pick all your items and lock them in as soon as possible. On this particular build I picked all my door hardware from one manufacturer and than found they didn't supply keyed CSD hardware 😣 . One last thing, personal preference, if you're putting CSDs in your home consider going to solid doors or something with a bit of weight.

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Brick Displays - It's highly recommended that you visit the display of your builder including any displays such as brick yards 😊 I once ordered 10,000 bricks, they had slashes through the top of each pack, I made a comparison against their brick display and what was delivered πŸ˜‰ and then received new packs of bricks and brick bins for the waste, the rest went on gumtree (some guy building a rendered retaining wall) πŸ‘ it's important to take photos and really look closely at the displayed product, sometimes you'll see lines through bricks on display, which means it's possible your bricks may arrive the same way πŸ€” (happens a lot with extruded bricks, you can ask the builder to not use them on your front facade or places of entertainment), mortor joints on display are usually very neat, however, during a dispute you might need to make a comparison between your home and what the builder has displayed not the brick yard (if they have displays). Rule of thumb, pretty safe to say the displays are the benchmark to your build, if you're not happy with the displays 😣 be cautious. Gravy tip - Take photos πŸ“Έ and check previous works (closely). Have you had issues with your bricks, workmanship or product? Was it resolved? Would be great to share your stories for others building. PS. I haven't had issues with @usgboralau, the picture is of some bricks I liked for a build 😊 . @usgboralau #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside . . . #residentialconstruction #residentialdesign #australianhouses #australianhomes #followourbuild #followmybuild #ourbuild #buildingourhome #buildingtips #firsthomebuilders #ownerbuilder #floorplan #realestateagent #propertyinvestment #homedesignΒ  #constructionstudent #buildingahouse #constructiondetails #realestateaustralia #constructionsite #propertyinvestor #bricks #brickwork #colourselection at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train Traps – Leaving Fill/ Spoil Onsite - 😣 Just checked a job for a client and advised them to have their builder remove their spoil β›° (dirt, gravel, sand) from site. Starting to see a few requests and a few queries from clients wanting to leave their fill onsite. Rule of thumb, in most cases this isn't a good idea, the spoil you have when the site is benched (levelled out) is usually only from the building platform, you'll still have extra spoil in most cases from your drainage, piers, trenches, driveway and areas outside the platform area. Gravy tip - Taking the spoil out of the ground doubles in size as it's no longer compacted (this is refered to as bulking) this gives you a good idea as to how much you'll end up with, it also falls sideways taking up a large footprint 😣 usually in the way of your build resulting in a 'difficult site'. Don't be that person 🀣. Check your borehole report, not all fill is treated equally and you may not be able to use the spoil for your desired purpose. If you like, when submitting your request for tender or contract checks (www.gravycheck.com.au) please note if you'd like me to specifically look at an item for you 😊 better safe than sorry ☹ πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ . #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside . . . #residentialconstruction #residentialdesign #australianhouses #australianhomes #followourbuild #followmybuild #ourbuild #buildingourhome #buildingtips #firsthomebuilders #ownerbuilder #floorplan #realestateagent #propertyinvestment #homedesignΒ  #constructionstudent #buildingahouse #constructiondetails #realestateaustralia #constructionsite #propertyinvestor #newblock #excavation at Sydney, Australia

(RooIkie) Gravy Train Traps – Visiting Prior to Purchase and Stepdowns - I'm fairly confident after looking at this photo, most would see the necessity of visiting a site prior to purchasing, #flatblock 😣 I've been pressured in the past to purchase without site access during Sydney's boom which was very tempting at the time, could of been a disaster πŸ˜₯ Rule of thumb, always request for a draft linen plan if you're unable to visit the site. Dropping a garage to suit your driveway gradient can cost anywhere between $10-$15k, a site like this will incure anywhere between $20-$50k+ in site cost compared to it's equivalent flat site πŸ˜“ I personally like homes with steps due to the articulation in floor and increased ceiling heights, however, great to be mindful this isn't usually suitable for those with the elderly or young 😊 Gravy tip - if you're builder is advising you to drop your garage, it's definitely worth considering (sometimes it's mandatory to comply is permit requirements). $10-$15k investment may make the difference between using your driveway and not πŸ€” Those building investments, demographics will determine if this sort of block is ok, a designer home demographic maybe more attracted to this sort of home, whereas those with accessibility concerns may steer away. #openforquestions . #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside . . . #residentialconstructionΒ  #contemporaryconstruction #residentialdesign #australianhouses #australianhomes #constructiongeek #australianarchitecture #buildingtips #flippers #ownerbuilder #buildingstudies #realestateagent #investor #homedesignΒ  #constructionstudent #constructiondetail #constructiondetails #realestateaustralia #constructionsite #propertyinvestor #tender #contractsigning #newblock at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Square Set Ceiling Joints - I'd like to share my two biggest fixed internal design secrets πŸ‘ I use square set joints and dressed all round (perfectly rectangular timber profiles) skirting and architrave everywhere πŸ˜ƒ the two choices offer a contemprary look and also migate any design oversights πŸ˜… oversights #crynowlaughlater πŸ‘ Rule of thumb, the joints and DAR skirting/ architrave are not suitable for every design, consistency naturally is very important, if you're going contemporary, square away 😊 Gravy tip - I especially like to use the square set joints when there's full height wall tiling and full height wall to wall curtains (feel free to visit the previous post on sheer curtains). If you're within the construction phase (pre-lining) please don't feel shy calling your site supervisor requesting a building variation to your contract 😊 better awkward than sorry πŸ‘ side note you can also nominate a room/ rooms if you wish πŸ˜‰ . #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside . . . #residentialconstructionΒ  #contemporaryconstruction #residentialdesign #australianhouses #australianhomes #constructiongeek #australianarchitecture #architecture101 #buildingtips #flippers #ownerbuilder #buildingstudies #realestateagent #renovation #investorΒ  #constructionstudent #constructiondetail #constructiondetails #realestateaustralia #constructionsite #tender #niche #plasterboard #lining at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Basins - I had a client question why their builder was charging them so much for a basin when the price of the basin was a lot cheaper than the others πŸ€” The answer was in the labour 😊 please be mindful when selecting an undermount sink or basin that it can cost a fair bit to cut and polish the edges of the stone benchtop to suit. Rule of thumb, if you're going above counter, check how much space you have and consider how close the basin will be to the wall, we've picked up far too many contracts where the client/ builder has selected a basin that finishes 10-20mm from the wall resulting in a tight space for cleaning, lack of silicon or way too much silicon 😣 Ask your builder if they'll be able to silicon around the edge of the basin adjacent to the wall and how much space you'll have behind the basin πŸ‘ Gravy tip - Use the basin(s) to improve the space πŸ˜‰ there's a few different types, here's a few πŸ‘Œ above counter, under bench, semi-recessed, wall hung and pedestal. Understanding the relationship between space, vanity style and benchtop finish will provide you as a builder, designer or home owner with a plethora of options. Also! remember to sketch, sketch and draw and draw, each elevation and layout πŸ‘ 😊 #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside . . #residentialconstructionΒ  #contemporaryconstruction #residentialdesign #australianhouses #australianhomes #constructiongeek #australianarchitecture #architecture101 #builders #ownerbuilder #realestateagent #renovation #investor #homedesignΒ  #constructionstudent #constructiondetail #constructiondetails #realestateaustralia #sydneypropertymarket #constructionsite #propertyinvestor #tender #basin #sink #design at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Open Voids (Design) - I'm about to enter design mode once again πŸ€“ as usual I'm looking at how I can incorporate more voids πŸ˜€ the voids provide height, articulation in ceiling, air/ noise circulation and often more light. This particular void is central to the home, its to rear of the first floor looking down into the kitchen, dining and living area. Considering the tight side setbacks to the home, the void provides the living areas with a great amount of northerly rays 🌞 Rule of thumb, you'll still need to maintain the basics of trying to visualise what you'll see from the top and bottom, what you'll use as a balustrade, what you'll use as lighting, natural lighting, privacy and continuation in details (colours, lights, textures.. cornice 😣 no cornice 😎). Gravy Tip - think about the design practically, a whole bunch of voids is great only if it doesn't adversely affect the traffic in the home and useful space. I've had a client provide a void to the first floor in lieu of a forth bedroom, looked great, empty nesters. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone. Important to also note how you'll/ they'll change the lights and clean the glass 😊 during the build the void was really fun πŸ˜₯ 🀣 #gravyoneverything πŸ€“πŸšˆπŸ πŸ˜ #happybuilding πŸ˜€πŸ‘ #gravycheck βœ” #checkingcontracts #clientside . . #residentialconstruction #residentialdesign #australianhouses #australianhomes #followourbuild #followmybuild #ourbuild #buildingourhome #buildingtips #firsthomebuilders #ownerbuilder #floorplan #realestateagent #propertyinvestment #homedesignΒ  #constructionstudent #buildingahouse #constructiondetails #realestateaustralia #constructionsite #propertyinvestor #voids #lighting #design #architecture at Sydney, Australia

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Bamboo - Quick things to consider 😊 height (some of these bad boys might look small now however can grow between 6-10m, take care near eaves), coverage/ screening, distance between each plant (too close and you may limit the height, just Google the spacing requirements 😊), clumping or running 😣 please please becareful, clumping bamboo grows within a circular circumference whilst running bamboo can grow wildly (unless you treat it accordingly with lined trenching) this type of bamboo is also referred to as invasive 😯 however under the right circumstances running bamboo can work well.

(Rookie) Gravy Train 101 – Turf - Really personal preference, some people need it and others prefer hard surfaces.. there's also an array of types of turf πŸ€” Rule of thumb, quality and type of turf can vary a lot, ensure you know what you're getting so you may care for it accordingly, be super careful when purchasing a 'weed and feed' fertiliser, some types of fertiliser may kill your lawn πŸ˜• really need to read the packaging. Gravy Tip - new lawn needs a lot of water πŸ‘ I water twice a day for a few weeks and mow after a month on high for new turf 😊 side note if someome just writes 'turf' in a quote or tender you may want to double check what you're getting. The cheaper stuff is pretty tough to look after. I personally always used a buffalo grass.
