When building a new home, specifications to a new home are important. The specifications are a written description of everything that is not convenient or necessary to show graphically in the floor plans – like the make and model of your appliances, the sizes of your windows, or the type of flooring you will be having. Whatever you do not have in the plans, will be spelled out in the specifications, from everything to the elevation, external, internal, kitchen, laundry, bedrooms and more.
Here are some specification inclusions you should expect:
31° high ceilings add luxury vertical space to your open plan living area.
Privacy Locks to Master and Ensuite
Feel safe and secure with peace of mind privacy locks to bath, ensuite, WC and master bedroom with hard wired smoke alarms and a 25 year structural warranty with a 6 months maintenance period.
TV, Phone & Data Points
Make the most of the living space provided to you in your new home and consider the minor details, such as double points throughout, metallic light switch covers, environmentally friendly insulation and TV and phone points.
Full Length Framed Mirror
