The weekend that was

Yayayayay, we got our draft floorplan back on Saturday afternoon.  They drafter did a great job!  The only changes necessary were to some window and door placement (which were necessary due to me already having a furniture placement concept in my head); a couple of kitchen layout issues; swapping the Study and Walk in Robe/Storeroom; oh, and upsizing our miniature Master Bedroom.

So, here it is.  It's a bit smaller than what we wanted, basically because of the dodgy shape of the block and some nasty sewer man holes in our front yard.  Seriously, man holes in the front yard - how rude!  Overall, though, we love it, and can't wait to get some movement happening on this project.

I will cover off our plans for each of the rooms over the coming weeks.  Now, we just have to cross our fingers that the costing comes back where we need/want it to.

In other exciting weekend happenings, we went to the HIA Home, Renovate & Build Expo.  As a home show, it was sadly lacking, but there was a nice surprise for those of us who are fans of 'The Block' and other home-related TV shows.  We met and had a nice chat with Scott Cam.  The kids weren't there, but were wishing they had been after seeing the photo!

The photo has now been removed, as it was indeed a very unattractive one, and Husband didn't like it! 
Fair call, too!

I hope you had a great weekend, and enjoy this first week of August.  Those chilling Ekka winds are just around the corner for us, so we will be taking full advantage of a few warm days this week!



  1. Love itttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt. The floor plan looks amazing! Can't wait to see the build start (and finish of course) :)

    Looking great M!!!


  2. Aren't Coral just great? We built the Brampton 232 with them 14 odd years ago in Mt Cotton (Redlands) we made alot of changes to the floor plan as well and they were more than accommodating with our requests. Did you move the location of the Entry as well? Plan looks great, very practical for a family. Great work!
