A solid core door would help with noise reduction. We’ve got a Hume system that slides easily and is soft close, so no banging shut

Those heights are fine, have you thought about what you want to store on the shelves? 400 will fit a large cereal box nicely.

Hi @darb74, great to hear you’ve moved in! Sounds like your window issues were sorted? Looking forward to seeing the pics [emoji846]

I would actually keep the door between pantry and mudroom/laundry. Makes bringing in groceries from the car straight into pantry to put away much easier. Do you really need a guest bathroom AND additional toilet downstairs? If you don’t, just remove the toilet and put a second door into the bathroom...

We have a front door! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191213/b22d813fb6a1bc63d851ac2026e2e435.jpg Tiling in the mudroom/laundry.

More tiling in the entrance hall, I’m liking these. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191209/1b0f7196cb92f69e51dc129c77817047.jpg Landscaping started today. Builder had to get access through our back neighbour for the bobcat. The survey has also shown that the original fence with one of our side ne...

The joiners have been beavering away! Kitchen. The cupboard door on the top right should be glass fronted. I’ve also just noticed that the equivalent cupboard on the left side looks to be a different height, when it should be the same. I’ll have to bring this up with the builder. https://uploads.tap...

At that depth I would just go for a standard 600 depth built in robe rather than walk in robe. The extra 380 won’t be much extra in terms of storage space, and better utilised to make the room more spacious.

Also had a proper look at the cavity sliders. When fully opened they sit flush with the doorframes. I was wondering how to pull the door out of the frame to shut it, and the builder showed me. It’s a push release! And when it shuts fully, it’s also soft close. After all these years of putting up wit...

Stairs installed on Monday. They feel wonderfully wide to me, and when I got back home I realised why - our current stairs are 80cm wide, whereas these are 1.2m! The treads, landing, newel top and handrails are spotted gum, and will be stained to bring out the natural warmth and colour. Everything e...

Looking great! Have you done underfloor heating throughout? We are still deciding... No, just in the bathrooms and laundry (which, along with a ceiling hung clothes airer, will double as a drying room on wet winter days!).

Because power boards and cords stretching across rooms are untidy and a trip hazard. If you put up Xmas lights, consider external gpo under eaves.

As mentioned, bedrooms need more than one, even if it’s currently a double. Alfresco definitely, plus other external. More more more in kitchen!
