New home build - Custom Design WA

Thanks, It feels bad to say that I'm relieved seeing big name builders receive fines as well. There definitely seems to be no shortage of incompetent trades people around!

Yes Danmar the seem to have ongoing problems with their roofs from 2012. We had our roof independently checked for that reason.

Slow progress again this week. There's a backlog of mistakes that we're waiting to get fixed and it's having a flow on effect. We're waiting on plumbing, plastering, tiling, electrical…

Which grey cladding colour to use with PGH Blue steel

Yes it's just a simple flat door painted monument. We are using water based paints for all our doors, this one is a Satin Matt finish.

Work restarted this week with the ground floor external render being finished. Most of the electrical fittings were installed and some shower screens went in.

I love the roof terrace, great idea.
I'm confused about your downstairs bathroom arrangement though. You called your laundry a laundry cum kitchenette, and yet the laundry is open to the…

Kitchen sink placement

I would also centre the sink to the window, especially if it results in not having to move plumbing.

Thats looking great! Will you be drilling drainage holes in the planters? If that's not practical then maybe you could consider filling them with plastic pots instead. That way you…

The slab only reaches as far as the internal leaf of brickwork. The external leaf of brickwork sits on the footing below it. Did you take this into consideration when…

Where would you place kitchen bench?

I think a U shaped kitchen suits this space. Looks like there is space for pantries and fridge on the RHS of the doorway.

Floor looks great! Shame to see the timber ceiling go though. Did you have to replace it to suit the new kitchen layout?

I think it's a great plan, you've done well to capture the north orientation. My 2c:
1) add WIRs between bed 2,3
2) swap bath and shower in ensuite. At the…

It's very awkward to have to walk through the kitchen to get to your master bedroom. I would suggest reconfiguring this access.
One way to do this could be to swap…

Thats a lot of downlights for such a small space. You only reality need 2, anything more is an overkill.

I agree with chippy, 15m is a very comfortable size. Ideally you should have your living areas facing the back of the block, like in this plan.
