Getting close...we hope.

The house is coming along.

 We are really enjoying watching it take shape and imagining ourselves in it. I won't say it has all been smooth sailing, but things are being rectified as they are discovered.

The winter sunlight flooding into the living areas is making me happy. One of the reasons we decided to build again was because our last house was so dark, it didn't have a single north facing window.

The staircase and some more of that lovely northern sun coming in :)

Still to be completed:

Carpet/Timber floors
Bathrooms and laundry

and the list goes on..........

Bricks etc...

It has been a while since I updated this blog, but not for lack of action at the house.

The tradies worked solidly through JAN and FEB, even through those 40+ days we had.

The house is looking great and almost at lock-up.
There have been no major dramas, only a few minor mistakes which have been fixed right away.
All in all, we couldn't be happier.

After a week of solid rain last week, the slab was finally poured on Monday.

It looks great, and is beyond exciting!!!

It is all systems go!

On the 14th October our DA was approved by Baulkam Hills Council, taking less than 4 weeks, which was a delightful surprise to us. Last week Right Build began work on our block after the construction certificate was issued.
 A bit of digging and clearing.

 The essential port-a-loo.
The slab should be poured late this week, or early next week.

Colours Colours Everywhere

Over the past week or so we have been picking internal colours. I must say that this is my least favourite part of the building process. But, despite my trepidation we got through it and are very happy with our choices.
All our tiles were upgrades and we are yet to see the final bill, so hopefully it is not too much of an ouch!

Kids bathroom: Grey floors, white walls and the mosaic feature tile around the bath, shower recess and around the top of the vanity. White vanity with snow c/s top.

Ensuite, powder and laundry colours. No feature tile. vanity in blackened linewood, snow c/s benchtop.

Kitchen. White laminate cupboards (matte finish), c/s snow benchtop, burnished wood for bottom of the island, and spring glass splashback.
