Well here is our block of dirt...

Preliminary plans

Friday 9 October received first set of plans from Wisdom. At last we can see what each of the elevations of the house should look like.

Sunday 11 October met with Colt and Mark to go over some minor changes with the plans...all looking good.

Hopefully it won't be too long before we get the final building plans, landscaping plan and we can lodge with BCC.

Kitchen, bathrooms, landscaping

Since our last blog we have:
  • made some decisions regarding colour schemes and selections. I (D) was feeling really concerned about tile selections and our garage door but we think we've decided on the final tiles etc...this is obviously dependant on these tiles still being available when it comes to tile selection which doesn't occur until the slab is poured.
  • 4 Oct we took a trip to Alexandria and went to the Caesarstone showroom..we think we've chosen Glacier
  • we also went to Harvey Norman kitchen/bathroom centre and selected a Laminex finish for the vanity cupboards.
5 October...we took another visit out to The Ponds display centre and because the storm hit we got to spend some quality time with our friends Mark & Colt... we went out to have another look at the Impression kitchen because this is basically the kitchen design (with a couple of modifications) we will be having in our home. Colt hopes we will have our first set of plans some time this week...fingers crossed.

7 October....Today we met with Jonathan from UL today..a really nice guy..we explained to him our ideas for the landscaping in the back yard and front yard and he gave us some really good ideas..he hopes to get a landscaping concept plan to us shortly.
