Building A New House
Feb 02, 2013 12:25 pm
I thought I would have a go at a house blog topic as I have been quite fond of reading about other people's experiences.
This is my second build, which is currently underway (the slab is down). My first build was with HomeStart in Bertram (my current location).
I chose the Emerald by EasyStart for it's cost effectiveness and simplicity, I made a decent amount of upgrades prior to the contract signing and again at PreStart.
I couldn't upload an image of the original floorplan, but it is available on the EasyStart webpage.
Here are images of the upgraded floorplan and electrical floorplan
TriLock entry handle
Upgraded basins to Ensuite and Bathroom
EssaStone to Ensuite and Bathroom (It came standard in the Kitchen as a promotion)
Extra bench space (Kitchen)
Robe in Bed 3 moved out under the eaves
Living area tiling in lieu of vinyl
I paid extra to the carpet supplier for higher quality carpet
Gas Point in the Alfresco
900mm Oven in lieu of 600mm (Rangehood and Cooktop were 900mm)
Upgraded elevation windows
Extra powerpoints and a couple of conduits
The block is located in Parkland Heights and is 450m2. The house itself is 175m2 so I will have a lot of backyard DIY landscaping to do
I'm looking forward doing a few things myself at completion, some of which I wish I had of done myself with the first build, such as; paving, painting, shed building, patio/pergola etc.
I'm enrolling in a few mini courses at Polytecnic West
I will upload a picture of the slab soon as well as keep you all up to date with progress through to completion.
Any questions asked I will be happy to answer
