Ohhh am I too late? I like 2 and 4 also. I prefer a simpler streamlined look, but I guess it's not my house have decided making decisions for other people is more fun. I actually bought a few cheap light fittings today to replace a few of those builders fittings. Hoping to put in lots of fans but might start with a couple before going too fan crazy.

It's certainly a lot easier!

Wise move on both counts! How many fans are you thinking of putting in? We've gone for 3, if you include the alfresco. I'm settled on the alfresco fan but need to think about the inside ones a bit more. Which ones are you liking?

Loving your choice in the selection of the lights in the other areas...and the mood boards are really interesting!

The final votes are as follows:
#1 - 6
#2 - 11
#3 - 2 (approx)
#4 - 7
#2 is the clear winner! I think I saw this fitting at Lightingales so will head down there next week and ask about it.
In other news, I've been neglecting my roof timber posting because it just kept going! But, it's finally done, they've finished the timbers, fascia, and eaves.
Next week, gutters, and then roof!
There is an issue with the portico though, which I'll raise with the SS next week. We actually had a site meeting on Friday but I didn't notice this until today.
I wanted the portico ceiling to be lined with glosswood to the very edge, but they've done some kind of weird boxing with the eaves beyond the pillars. Will have to discuss this, as I suspect that they don't want to line with wood to the edge due to weathering. But it's kind of key to the whole look. Original render done by architect:
If I do have to compromise, does anyone have any suggestions on this?

Good choice with #2, was about to raise my vote but I see it's already sorted!
No clue about your portico problem but I do know that I can't wait to see it finished! Love this look, especially in entry passages and out the front!

Looking good trixee. The gloss wood lined portico will look amazing. I don't recall seeing what you've selected for your front door. Is it on your blog?

I am not sure whether Perth has its own way of doing things in regards to this. Most of Perth has class A (sandy soil), except for some areas near rivers or hills.
