Im probably starting this a bit late as we are just about to start the brick stage. Ive enjoyed reading other people's posts here so I thought I would share our building journey, and hopefully get a few tips and ideas along the way!
We bought a property in Kalamunda a year ago. Signed up with Dale Alcock back in July and are building a slightly modified Falls Creek, from their farmhouse range. We are going for a modern farmhouse look. So far, DA have been great in terms of communication, just a bit frustrating in regards to progress. I guess like everyone, we are anxious to have this house built and be living in it. This is the house we plan on living in long term.
Slab went down in mid March and apparently bricklaying is starting on Monday. Just cant wait to see this house go up. I'll post our plans and progress shots as soon as I figure out how to upload photos on this thing???
