Coming along nicely Trixee. Interesting to see the fence line so far in from the retaining. We haven't had our fencing done yet but I'm expecting it to be a little closer to the retaining!

Looking fab. Hope they can do something about the sliding door, we had a flush slider on our last house and apart from lots of dirt getting in it was great - no tripping.

Well the brickies have been going great guns this week. So much so that Mr. Trixee decided he'd try and do a real-life fly-through of the house using his pet quadcopters (one Parrot and one Hubsan). Unforunately the video didn't work out, but it was great fun trying. However, I did take photos of the flight. So here are some photos of the latest progress, quad-copter style!
It's the battle of the drones! David vs Goliath!
First up, the big Parrot. Ready for take-off!
We have lift-off!
Flying through the master suite:
Flying through the kitchen:
Now it's the little Hubsan's turn - and he's off!
Up he goes, past the laundry...
He's getting away! Up and over the library wall.
Close up in the master suite:
Passing through where the bar will be:
And the end! Next time, we'll try and get the video working.

Ardie, I think I would have a heart attack if that happened! Could probably set up a wicked easter egg hunt though!

Whinge time. I'm trying to finalise my plumbing fixtures, and you wouldn't think it would be this hard! Honestly, why can't tapware makers make everything you need? Or you find one thing you like in a range, but the rest of the range is crap. Or you like say 90%, but they've decided that the mixer should be hideous for some reason. Seriously! It shouldn't be this hard! Bah.

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.
