Bush fire provision - VARIATION

As we are in a bush fire prone area with rating BAL 12.5 we are needing to make upgrades to the house so we met the requirement for homes in bush fire prone areas.

So a variation of $4241 has been raised it was initially $4523 but we have already upgraded our front door so this was credited back to us.

So for our money we will get

- Sarking to the entire roof area
- Roof ventilator (whirly bird) to roof including ember guard due to roof being fully sarked
- Weepholes with corrosion-resistant steel mesh inserts
- Upgrade of garage external hinged door, to comply with Bushfire Regulations (excludes pivot doors).
- Provision of ember seal to standard garage sectional door
- Additional Raven seals to rear hinged garage door
- Provide flyscreens with aluminium mesh in lieu of standard nylon mesh

We also was notified it was time to pay the community infrastructure fee to Casey Council which is a once off fee payable after settlement. This was $808.03 - love the 3 cents.

So now we are all paid up we just wait and let HBC do their thing!
