Why didn't you just use day rate guys? Would have come out way cheaper. And yeah I would have used regular it-blok instead of q-con, no 6" insulation, and ceiling tile instead of gyprock. Steel roof is a good choice though, and the inlaws wont give a shit about rain noise. These people are borderline narcoleptic anyway.

3 light fixtures and 3 double plug outlets, one for each room, and a 3 circuit breaker box with a main breaker, single RCBO feeding the 3 circuits, and 3 breakers, one circuit feeding each room. Basically the only real give a fuck area would be at least a little electrical safety. You could, in all honesty, supply that entire house with a single circuit assuming no AirCon/hot shower. But even a 3 circuit setup with RCBO is cheap as fuck and has a little room to grow, not like they will care or have the foresight for it.

For a place that small, it could easily be done for about 200k with day rate guys and getting cheaper stuff.

The inlaws don't give a fuck about that 'fancy' stuff and probably view it as a waste anyway.
