After many many months reading and learning a lot from this forum, I am ready to start my own thread. Yippee
We are building the Grandview 36 with M$tric0n in the northern suburbs of Brisbane near Bribie Island. Our block is 1038 sqm so it is nice and big and flat. This is our second time building, and we learnt so much from our first build so we are much more prepared this time round.
We have made the following changes to the standard floorplan:
Enclosed the Living Room in with double doors and this will be our office
We added the Grand Outdoor Room
Made the kitchen island bench longer and wider
Made the garage larger - almost a triple garage with a 1m extension out the back with a roller door
We changed the configuration of the wall in the Family Room and added a hearth. Not because we are having a fireplace, just to make it a bit of a feature wall
Added cupboards to the back wall of the Butlers Pantry
Added a broom cupboard, underbench cavity for the washing machine and dryer, and overhead cupboards in the Laundry (very excited about this!
Removed sliding doors from the Rumpus and Bedroom 1 that open into the Outdoor Room. Instead, we have put in long narrow windows up high. I hate the idea of guests being able to see into my messy bedroom from the outdoor room. Also, the Rumpus will be our Home Theatre room, so we wanted to cut out some of the light from this room.
Here are our plans.
Plans have been approved and we are currently waiting on finance approval. Site start will be some time in May.
I look forward to sharing the highs and lows of our journey with you all.
