We are definitely getting there.
A fair bit on this week. Will keep you updated re Gasgate.
Jumping Jack Flash.....

What tree/plantings for shaded atrium?

Oh how gorgeous!
We have something similar but ours faces north.
Go for something with foliage colour to be a real talking point. South will get very little light/heat.
Avoid anything deciduous…

Thank you!
Oh no, didn't do an insta. Started a blog but never really maintained it (life got in the way).
Only really have this forum and our hundreds of photos. Might…

Pool excavation ONLY

Yeah pretty much.
I just can't see many councils allowing huge covered holes in backyards for a future pool......unless the future was actually in, and sooner rather than later!

What about a sleeper pool?
Hole dug, fibreglass (or concrete I'm assuming) pool shell put in and plumbing capped off.
Covered to "sleep" for the duration of the build
Then once house is…

Just over 50 sqm from memory.
8 x 6.5?
I agree with the meter going as close to front fence/footpath as possible. Easier to hid behind a plant/tree.

Great feedback. Love when everyone is on the same page and works together to get a great result!
What day is settlement scheduled?

Attached Rainwater tank slab

Interesting,
Mine was similar. We have the tank supplying every toilet and garden so it's quite big.
Slab plan looked like yours.
Slab pour comes and section for tank not poured. …

I think you need to work out if you want a white, or a really warm neutral.
As our wall colour was also our ceiling colour, we went for Moon White.…

Yeah she's big!
Thank you lovely. Hope that's pretty much it for problems now!
You got a settlement date? Champagne on ice?
So excited for you!

Hearing that this type of thing is quite common doesn't make me feel any better.

They've now offered to cover costs to move it 3.5…

We have it externally and on a section in our kitchen.
We went with a "more traditional" wall colour, Haymes Moon White.

Happy to discuss on direct message if you'd like?
