Long time follower
Started the process just over 18mths ago, but pulled out of the land (long story).
Have started again now. Much more confident this time around lol
We have paid deposit/s & signed land contracts on a lovely big 855sqm block in the Shoalhaven.
We have started drawings/initial deposit with GJ Gardener Shoalhaven. Ferrara 286 modified.
Putting in quotes for a pool (8x4) to the bank also.
Have so many photos/ideas etc from here & so grateful for that.

Good luck with everything. Just got keys to my own GJ Gardner home yesterday. I've gotta say, they were brilliant throughout the process.
& thanks for replying, was starting to think nobody was reading mine lol
Enjoy your new home!

Colour wise:(updated Jan15)
We are carpeting the whole house, not kitchen/pantry + study though, due to my ankle injury (injured for life). Will be a charcoal grey with white flecks so its not too dark.
Kitchen, pantry + study will be 'Luni' white. Study is tiled due to fishtank.
Kitchen will have the Luni white tiles as mentioned, classic white cabinets with black night ceaserstone. A turquoise glass tiled splash back. Pantry will be laminate, same colour ideas.
Bathrooms will have luni white floors & walls, truffle (brown/black) cabinets with black ceaserstone bench tops & white half drop in sinks. The tiling on the facing casing of the bath will be feature turquoise tile.
Laundry white gloss floors, classic white cupboards & black marble laminex bench top.
Walls throughout will be cotton sheet, with 1 feature wall in the family room (small wall) in a matching turquoise feature colour.
June fog cladding
surfmist garage door
Ironstone roof with fuscia, guttering etc
Woodland grey fencing (no choice in this)
Black window frames
Stained jarrah huge front door
charcoal black driveway

good luck with the build mate ... due to the number of people building and posting you pop away from the first page very quickly ...

Love your enthusiasm!! Happy we could cheer you up
Your plan looks great, how big will your pool be out of interest?
We have decided to do the pool ourselves once we are in, there will be heaps of time before summer.
Pool shell will be roughly 8m by 4m

This tile can be 'cut' many different ways, which is great i think.
So using this stunning turquoise glassed tile for the kitchen splash back laid horizontal with the tile cute into 3 long rectangles.
online image not of my tile, but example of how it will be layer also.

Im loving the bathroom floor and wall tile. I was hoping to choose a similar one to that. Was it an upgrade? Also love the colour of the splashback. Good choices. Cant wait to see how they look.

$1762 / sqm seems reasonable. best way to get a rough idea would be to go to a volume builder website, select a plan that is similar to what you're building and figure…

Sorry I misread....you want to cut 20sqm (I read it that you had already) remove the rear void and put the master bedroom there? I think to take out 20sqm you would have…
