Hi guys, So just wanted some collective wisdom here of those who have encountered or dealt with the following design/building issues before I proceed. I am currently very close to signing with a builder choice for my first build - an intended rental. 1) Pushing your sliding wardrobes out under the eaves for minor bedrooms to allow for more open usable space. Worry is someone once mentioned gutters/eaves being in line with the wardrobe building was a no-no for water damage, seepage and a host of problems? Is this a high risk or a very low risk, probability? Would you advise against it? As it makes good space design sense.... any one speak from experience? 2) Would not having a solid opposing wall available opposite to where you'd likely centre your master bedroom's bed be a deal breaker for a rental or if you were purchasing a property? Is this a petty thought? The design I'm looking at is their most popular design but the likely bed location faces part of the opening to the ensuite. I can push the wall out 300mm to provide further wall space and having the ensuite door further along , but you still wouldn't have a solid wall for a very large tv centred. 3) Would you pay $4500 more to raise from 30 courses throughout the house to 31 courses (alfresco/garage always being 3 courses lower). Or save the money and leave it at 30 course (27c garage/alfreso)? For a rental I don't think it would matter in terms of fiancial return (would make a visual impact). But for resale value do you think I'm limiting myself if i goto sell in 10,15 years? Is it worth saving or investing that extra money. It's quite abit on my budget as far as an investment currently, but if this is a no brainer for insurance if I resale in 10 years, I'll take it. That said I hope to hold onto the property as a cash flow cow if things go well? Just incase plans change.... Only cost me $990 promo to bump up2 courses from the standard 28 courses to 30, so the extra course bump up sure is expensive at $4,500... if I leave the promo out and go straight to 31 courses in living, entrance and dining I could do this for the promo price. I think the garage/alfresco would follow up to 28c in that case? 4) Would you invest $1,500 to upgrade from double course to single course external bricks? Would it add long term potential resale value? Probably a no for a rental but wondering if its good capital resale insurance to pay the upgrade to single course? Thanks for any advice.
