Thanks Guys..inside of the house is comming along as we imagined.
I am having trouble with Telstra giving me a phone line - They are not sure when they will be able to run some copper wire.
Next to do when the weather clears up is bit of Landscaping in the front and sides...
Not sure what is the best way to do it.
Front - Synthetic grasss / Normal Grass / rocks (I am not a big fan of mowing)
Backyard - Grass with some garden beds next to the fence

Agree with you on mowing! We don't have room to store a mower so we plan to have a small patch of the fake stuff out the back. We have a clear plan for landscaping out in the front yard and I can't wait to start the design!
A good tip for landscape design for the front yard is to look at the computer images of facades on builders websites. We are loosely basing our design off a simmonds facade image.

I am planning to get Oak handrails for the stairs..and Stain it by myself
Any suggestions on what brand of Stain I should use and the process of staining?? (never done this before)

I don't know Doublej, but practice makes perfect I would get some similar sample pieces of oak, take them to the paint department at Mitre10 and get them to paint a sample of all the stains. Then you can take them home and have a think about it.
Feast Watson is meant to be a good quality brand.

Hi Edscl...I have not been on the thread alot...still waiting for phone and internet at home.
I will post more pics once the minor projects are finished (each room, footpath, landscape etc...)

Doublej where did you source your cabinets from? As we need cabinet above fridge to match colours. Would also like to fill in gap between bathroom vanity and wall.

We got the kitchen from a Kitchen company in the west.
They came out cheaper than few of the cabinet makers and also "Kitchen Innovation" Burbank's sub contractors.
They did a great job and matched the existing colour. I can pm you their details if you want to use them
