That's exciting! Jess is our Building Co Ordinator too. What design have you chosen/modified?

If they cannot provide a reason why the smaller door has to…

I'm totally fine with that as everyone has a brand they want, and that's that.

How do you choose a custom builder?

Hi Macher,

Hi Bebbsy,
Well, thank you.
It was important to get the home right for us and how we live, but also to offer something desirable come resale (hopefully many many years later)

Nothing like shopping for bits and pieces to really "finish" your new house, and turn it into a home.
Can't wait to see all the fittings and furniture in and photographed!
