Alfresco floor

I really want to have decking in my pergola/alfresco area and the original plan was to just put weed mat down, but last week I started thinking about putting concrete down when I get the driveway done as it might be quite some time (12+ months) before I can afford the decking and then when I can afford to do it properly and I would just go over it. I then read a post on the good old H1 forum that someone building the 23 version of my house is getting their alfresco area included at no charge due to their slab being a H type! Evidently it's due to structural strength or something and everyone else who has needed a H slab has had it done too! Yippee!! :D

I've also been checking PD's 24/7 a few times today and there is now a note in there under Letters with the description "Final Working Drawings Letter" so I assume that means my final drawings have been completed and I should get them in the mail tomorrow! YaY!

It's so exciting having things happen, I know I keep saying it, but it is!

Not sure if I mentioned this or not, but I think there is a Regent 23 going up one street away from me, the slab has just been laid and going from the location of the plumbing it really looks like a Regent 23 so it will be interesting to compare the two builds once I start


  1. Hi Lisa

    Thats interesting. Who did you hear that from re the H class slab getting the Alfresco for free? We need a H Class slab and had to pay $1600 to upgrade the slab in the Alfresco area - we had no choice, it had to be done.


  2. Someone commented on H1 that if you have a H slab then the alfresco is included to help structural strength, but I'm not sure if that's for people who have had the alfresco roof included or not. My final drawings should be waiting in my mailbox for me so I will know more once I get home
