Got the keys today

Looks great! Did you end up with a custom plan?

I would suggest making the house a bit bigger. Your living areas are slightly on the small side but your block is huge by today's standards. Use it to get…

A good portion of the upper floor brickwork was completed this week. The staircase has been blocked with scaffolding which prevents us from being able to have a good…

I think an augmented reality version of this could be good. You can look at your actual room trough your camera and place furniture, rather than a 3d replica.

I agree with widening the entry. You need a minimum of 1400 width in an entry to not feel cramped. You won't feel the difference when parking your caravan,…

Do you have a render with the driveway gates closed? I would be worried about the gap at the bottom looking weird. Might be better to avoid gates altogether if…

Wow it's amazing how they went from slab down to lockup in 10 weeks!

Bricks were delivered on Monday.
Sand and materials lift were delivered Tuesday and today we had the steel, door frames and window frames delivered for the second storey.

Congratulations on your upcoming build! The plan looks very functional, but may be a bit dark. Which was is North? I have a couple of suggestions:

You could also consider a slightly grey tint of white if you don't want the harshness of pure white and warm white is too yellow.

Roller blinds for 3.5m stacker doors

Do you really need blinds? In our current house we chose to put blinds on the alfresco for privacy and found no need for internal blinds.

I hope so. Our upper floor is double brick. Technically they should be able to load the bricks after one week of slab curing. It would be great to…

Regardless of the orientation, the living areas in this house will always be pretty dark. The only windows to the living/dining are shaded by the alfresco. At least your…

Looking great! Has there been any day since slab down where there hasn't been work done? They seem to be working at a blistering pace!

Trusses and steel for floortech flooring have been installed this week.

Good idea with painting the beams, especially if you're in a coastal area.

side path ideas

Pebbles are awful. They allow weed growth and trap debris (leaves, grass clippings etc). They're not cheaper than pavers either. I would suggest just paving the sides.

I think it would help if you worked with an experienced designer or draftsperson. There are a lot of weird internals and disproportionate spaces which don't work.

We had had a pause in building for 10 days due to delays with the 1st floor installers. Finally today work resumed and the steel beams were installed.

Scaffolding went up this week, steel for the first floor has been delivered.

Feedback on the plans

Adding to the previous comment, try to keep your bedrooms/ study to a minimum of 3m width. Otherwise they will feel cramped.

Have a look at the attached rough sketch. By taking away storage space from the garage you can fit a better sized theatre at the front of the house.
