Looking good, 2pais!!
I like how you got your porch poured with the slab. Hmmm, I asked DH why we didn’t get that done and he reckons he asked the builder but they don’t do it. Oh well can get it poured with the driveway – still debating on whether to get tiled front porch or just exposed aggregate. More decisions
There is also a h@llm@rk going up next door to us and they look to be at the same stage you are.
Our frame still hasn’t gone up…. hopefully it will by this weekend. So exciting!!

n&n02 we too are undecided on what flooring to get for porch/patio. Like the look of pavers but out of our budget. Have yet to get a quote for aggregate. Rest of our house is tiles n carpets.
There is a H@llm@rk home few houses down our street too. There seems to be few around the area being built. May be i am noticing them now since i am building with them
Keeping fingers crossed for u

Wow this is powering along, that's great
We had our porch and alfresco concreted with the slab, something to do with the type of slab that we needed (but we got charged extra for it). However, we ended up concreting over the top when we got the driveway done in exposed agg so that it all looked the same. You would never know there was plain concrete underneath.

Thanks Hels, n&n02, Pebbles
Hels we are thinking of getting our Porch n Patio tiled but Driveway exposed aggregate that is if it falls within our budget.
n&n02 our windows are silver in colour. After the windows went in i realised that we cant open the bottom half only the top sliding to let air in. Would have preferred full openings to windows as most homes i have seen.
Pebbles i am a little bit disappointed with the roof tiles as i feel they look too dark at this stage. Hoping that ones the bricks are in it will blend in. I had taken the picture midday in sunlight they look black and in shade they look more bluish greyish.

We are planning to go for a gravel garden so have already gotten rid of the lawn. However when we removed the tarp the soil was wet throughout and we have water pooling on…
