Our grd floor orange tongue was laid and I looked at my hubby and said "****, this looks really small". The size of the grd floor is 19sq. The builder then build up the frame of the rooms and things started to look a little bigger. I climbed up the ladder to check the set up of the first floor and the builder said "your bedrooms upstairs are going to be huge". I told him I was worried that things looked small. "Small, you have to be joking, wait till the walls and plaster go up, remember your ceiling height is 3m".
I cannot visualize in my head at all!!!!

It's very common for the slab and frames to depict the house as being smaller than it is. When building our first home, I made DH measure every single room in frame stage as I was convinced they had made a mistake! It was fine....
..once the plaster went up, it suddenly looked much bigger than I thought.
Feel free to measure though to put your mind at rest - worked for me!

It is even more interesting once you start buying furniture and filling up the house, I have been finding that most rooms are bigger than I imagined. I also though my pantry was small (at around 1.2 X 1.6 meters) until the other day I found my self in there and it felt so roomy lol.

All good. Yes joiners do a lot more than that. Its also a common misconception that carpenters can do this type of work or build kitchens. Sure they could have a go at…
