After the usual long waiting, waiting, paperwork waiting timeline we are now just starting construction! Our groundworks started Friday and footings should be done this week sometime. Hope the weather is good!
We are building beachside, albeit over a km from the beach but still!
We were originally signed with a different builder but got to a point where our guts said no, the plan didn't feel ok and so we pulled out. We looked at a few other builders but considering our original plan was a cobbled together version of a home (with some changes) we nearly bought further up the coast that was an Aveling build it seemed silly not to go with Aveling.
I had originally realllllly wanted a splash back kitchen window and almost based the plan almost around that but had to forgo that in order to make the whole footprint work better. Hopefully So now we have a big 4x2, activity, theatre, study, big alfresco and a wider garage
Hopefully the photos work
Our block is a funny shape and is actually a duplex block. Since new estates don't like to sell big blocks it seems like most of them are funny shapes!
These are our selections, although I changed the bathroom benchtops at pre start, and had all cupboards in kitchen and both bathrooms made silk finish. Kitchen we have gone for white units with a pale essa stone. Essa have recently pulled their entire range after our selections and before our pre start, for reasons unknown to the builder! New choices aren't even on their website and I have no photo but it's a boring whitey colour with sone stippling. My original choice had sparkles We have two waterfall ends though
This is our two render colours of cloudy sky and urban tribe with the wallaby roof (top swatch) and garage. Looks blue in the photo but it's grey brown.
En suite tiles with old benchtop swatch. Darker floor tiles, white shower walls with feature tile. Double sinks with a single mirror over each sink, shower recess will be fully tiled.
Boys bathroom, again darker floors with white shower wall times. Don't love the feature tile here but it's ok, so it's only going above the benchtop and not in the shower
This is the benchtop that's in both bathrooms, concrete look which looks pretty nice, and the cupboards in both which are silk finish not matt as in the swatch.
This is the laundry - matt white cupboards with essa look bench. Essa throughout would have been beautiful but we cut back the $$$!
There is a pool being squeezed in above the end of the al fresco on an angle. Want it there so we can see it coming into the main living area even though there's a bit more space outside the side of the garage. Style over size I hope will work!
