This looks amazing! I love the attention paid to the brickwork around the round window, and the polished concrete had come up great!

The garage doors went in this week, and the silicone around the tiles and benchtops. Still lots of fixups happening. The floor mounted bath taps in particular are giving the…

Building a narrow lot home in Perth

There are a few builders around that will build you a 2 storey for 300k. New level homes comes to mind, they have some narrow lot designs.

It's just a preliminary clean at this stage, they will go over it again before handover.

I'm pretty sure our builder gets theirs from China. If they were to get them locally it would be a lot more expensive.

All up there are 5 regular drains plus 3 long strip drains in the showers. The price was to upgrade them from regular chrome drains to ones with tile inserts.…

Thanks Bobjane, The tiled floor wastes for all our wet areas cost a total of $834. This includes 3 showers, 3 toilets and the laundry.

theatre recess layout

Do you need an actual recess? TVs are so thin nowadays that you no longer need them. You'll just be limiting the size of TV you can fit.

Your house is looking great, it's so pretty! Shame about the vanity drawers, you'll probably have to have them shaped to fit around the plumbing.

Flooring in Home Office/Study

Tiles are a good option for the study. Office chairs on wheels are likely to scratch timber floors.

Yes the colour choice definitely felt like a gamble. I love it now, but if that changes in the future it can easily be painted over.

Wall paint was done this week. I have been nervous about our colour choices, since we are painting quite a few walls in Colorbond Monument which is a dark charcoal.…

I agree with Doozer regarding Summit Homes/ New Generation Homes. Their 2 storey and loft homes are some of the best value products right now.
