Half wrapped!

We visited the site in Sat, 21st August, and saw the house half wrapped.
Apparently, there is a shortage of brick layers so its a waiting game....
The garage area.

The main entry

The window overlooking the front of the house.

The side window - potential pool room

The crevices for the fridge and the pantry area

the dunny! (toilet)

Back of the house - the theatre room.

The living area and the feature wall.

There you go. nothing more exciting at this stage for now.

Partial Roof

Pardon the grainy look - this was taken on the way home at 6pm, so it was really dark. Auto image adjustment didnt do it much justice I guess, but at least I can see a ROOF! Even though, its only the top, and not yet on the alfresco or the garage, its a start.

Gutter & Facia Done

The Fascia & Gutter is done over last weekend and here is a photo.

Tile Appointment - Saturday, 7th Aug

The tile saga continues here and ends here too. thank goodness.
We decided to use this as the bottom splashback to our ensuite windows.

That means it will be 20cm of the feature tiles and then the mirror above it and the side will be covered with the tiles. Simple and cost effective. We would like to do things differently but cash isnt on our side.

The laundry area splash back is the shiny one vs. the tiles on the floor for the whole house.
Thats about it for now. We went under budget for this so we can afford more money for the window coverings, which seem to be another big cost coming up!
Stay tuned for roof, fasica and gutter news next!

Taking Shape.. more sticks up!

The windows are now in, and the fascia, roof & gutter is forecasted for this week.

Side of the house. Very little land on the side to play with....

The garage is now taking shape.

Nice stairs...

The top level

Back of the house - where the master bedroom will be upstairs.

Taking a "Sticky" beat

Here are photos from the inspection conducted on Thurs, 4th August @ 7.45am.
The house is now taking shape and the second storey frame is now up!

And now, it is pretty obvious that this will be our frontage of the house.

This is the front window ( from inside)

Wet and muddy, but happening still, is our meals / family room area and the sliding door leading out to the alfresco.

Nothing much cooking in our kitchen at the moment.

Daniel's Room To Be!!

That is the back of our house; the theatre room windows that will overlook the backyard.

And still in the theatre room, this is the side window overlooking the alfresco.

My Cloak Room! ( you can tell how much I adore this room!)

And before the final drive off today, I took a side view of our new home! Its looking good!!
