Building A New House
Allworth Avalon / Sonata Our Dream Home101

Tiling, cornices, skirting boards, are all done and all but 2 doors are hung.
The painter is due to begin at the start of next week.
We are having an on-site meeting with the SS to go over how to distribute the fill and a few other buts and pieces tomorrow morning.
Now that the hump is fixed and the kitchen is back in we will measure for the granite and marble.
Then our flooring guy is also going to meet us there tomorrow afternoon to go through the house and make sure we are all on the same page with the flooring
We have power on and got a letter from the supplier regarding the connection.
More kitchen shots
I was so worried this living room would be way too tiny to use during the build but now we are coming closer to the end I think it will be just fine
Bathroom and ensuite
I’m not loving the niche tiles as much as I thought I would plus I wanted them the other way around, however, once we get our shampoo, conditioner and soaps in there I think you will barely even see them

Wow... i have really enjoyed looking at yr updates aphsta...
Thanks for the heads up on some of the upgrade costs. we have been investigating building the Avalon Altona Media Entertainer with Allworth and wondering what some of the upgrades would cost. Thanks for the heads up on the towel rails and toilet roll holders and the costs. I like yr choices and would probably go with the same if we get that far.
Like you we would be settling for some of the basics things offered that is easily fixed later (i.e tapware, handles for drawers and doors, vanities, light fittings, concrete only for alfresco - tile later)
What we would upgrade is higher ceilings, HWS, 3 in 1 heater lights, more powerpoints, tv points, stone benches, wall mounted double oven in the kitchen, plumbing to al fresco (gas, water and drainage) in prep for outdoor kitchen. Do you have any idea of the quoted costs for any of the above upgrades (if you have any others that would be appreciated as well).
Can i ask what your site costs were... we have asked but its hard to get a straight answer. For reference we have been told we should budget 30-45k for site costs. If you have any advice any other hidden costs that would be much appreciated
I am a sucker for a spreadsheet and i will be creating one to calculate the basic costs of building this home when i can work out the costs of upgrades.
