A few things which architect and builder has already told us but we still want to keep.
- We've adding a lot of windows even thought our house is close to the fence and neighbors are also close to the fence, that's just Sydney I guess...
- Alfresco is too small to be used as bbq area etc, we still want it as a feature window/yard when looking from the lounge. If we make it wider it makes the house longer and the backyard too small.
- Master bedroom is massive, I want the hotel feel bedroom
- Plan is to fit a family with 2 kids (don't have kids yet, so it'll be young kids)
Also, anyone have a rough guide on costs of a project like this. I've been speaking to a builder who helps us input into the plans and uses mid quality fittings and it's blowing out our budget massively... i.e. $35/sqm tiles, $20k allowance for kitchen, semi-commercial stegbar windows & sliding. Was wondering what other people think this will cost. Current calculation is roughly ~$2,400 per sqm including the internals.
