Thankful Thursday (and a floorplan!)

Today, I am thankful that we've received building approval and things can finally get under way in the new year. No doubt, I am thankful for lots of other things, but this is number one in our house this week!!

As promised (the little people did not permit scanning and uploading activities yesterday), here is our floorplan...

And, the front elevation...

Just tilt your head a little to get a straight on view of the elevation.  My scanning assistant is only 7!

We know our Master Bedroom is relatively small, but because of the confines of the block, that was how it had to be.  The Ensuite more than makes up for it, and we will have a lovely little deck/retreat directly off the Master Bedroom - I'm hoping that will become my favourite spot in the house.

Bed Five is also teeny tiny, but it will be a Guest Room/Storage Space, and will serve it's purpose well.

Oh, and the other thing, if you are new to the blog, is that our block is a crazy shape, hence the Outdoor Entertaining space is to the front.  It will all become clear once we get started and I can show you photos of how it all comes together.

So, there it is, hopefully we will be very happy together.  We should receive notification of our site start date next week.  Merry Christmas to us!

I hope you've had a great week, and have equally awesome things to be thankful for in your life.

PS: Welcome to all our new followers.  Thanks for coming along for the ride!
