Yes, brick construction is the standard method of construction in WA. For a long time it was cheaper than timber construction but in the last few years timber framed upper…

Yes the weather's not ideal. I hope the scaffolding outside helps keep at least some of the rain out.

This week we had the upper floor plaster float done. There's quite a bit of drywall going in as well, so there are still a few bare walls.

Yes lose the guest room entry, there's no need given the proximity of the main door to the guest room door.

I agree about the double sink in the powder room. I would remove it and use the money elsewhere.

Very little work was done this week. The gables have been acrylic rendered so at least we can now see how the colour we chose looks on the house.

The plant you're looking at is Agapanthus. They also grow well in WA as they have tuberous roots that hold moisture through dry spells.

The purple flowers in the photo look to me like Salvias.

You could also consider lavender as a waterwise alternative. There are so many beautiful new varieties around now.

I hope you haven't paid them yet. Tell them they'll be paid when it is constructed to plan. They'll still make a profit at that price.

That actually looks quite okay. Once it's painted a light colour it will look even more spacious. I guess its probably more useful to have a lot of bench space…
