It is a little exciting Charli.
What is less exciting is reselecting the bench top for the wet areas. The Caesarstone (Urban) that I had selected won't be available for about a fortnight so in the interests of getting us in the house as soon as possible, we're off to the stone mason tomorrow to pick a replacement. Wish me luck!

Incredibly painless reselection of the wet area bench tops.
We've also locked in an offcut for the kitchenette space near the upstairs lounge.

I did realise today that the stained glass in the front door isn't what we wanted.
So happy with how the rest of the house is coming together I am happy to leave it as is.

Thanks Charli! Given that the door has been on for a couple of weeks and I only just noticed, I agree that it works ☺

Just got word that the benches have started going in and the painter is in the house.
Could do a happy dance . I'll get to see it tomorrow.

Loving my kitchen bench already. I can see some stone stroking in my future ?
Was surprised to see an undermount sink installed though.
Very relieved that the bathroom colours work now that they are in. Little scared about the cost of the bench tops though

OMG!!! It looks so good! I'm so envious! I had to cut cost and the Bianco drift had to go. I replaced it with Clamshells and white shimmer! (I'll be stoking the stones too, if I was you!).

Thanks!! I am really excited to get the plastic cover off of the Bianco Drift.
Petrified of the bill but my argument is that the kitchen needs to look as close to perfect as possible as you can see it as soon as you walk in the front door.

I was just sighing over my bench again and realised I never put up a pic of the kitchen with the overheads in.
For posterity, this is an old pic, pre-bench install.

Wow!! The bianco drift is going to look absolutely incredible!! I would have loved it but hubby was 100% on a white kitchen

My kitchen bench was always a non-negotiable in our house. Although in saying that, I did start with an insistence that I would have a light granite bench top. The Bianco Drift was a pseudo compromise Helps that I fell in love with it from the very first time I saw it on display.

Bench tops is stunning and believe me you will stroke the bench often or at least I do
Ha ha. Glad to hear I'm not alone. Would ask if there is a 'Stone Stroking Anonymous Club' but I would never agree to stop appreciating it

In my experience there are very big differing levels of types of custom builders and if you're lucky you can find the full custom ones who price up at a project builder…
