More tiling in the entrance hall, I’m liking these.

No, just in the bathrooms and laundry (which, along with a ceiling hung clothes airer, will double as a drying room on wet winter days!).

Electrical Plan Critique/Help

If you put up Xmas lights, consider external gpo under eaves.

As mentioned, bedrooms need more than one, even if it’s currently a double. Alfresco definitely, plus other external.
More more more in kitchen!

Our solid core internal doors have been prepped. I forget what the technical term is where they cut out where the hinges and jambs go . A couple of the…

I know the feeling! When the kids are running about upstairs it’s like a herd of elephants. So we got hebel flooring in the new build

It looks a great plan! The void must make the living areas so spacious. We’ve got the hebel floor too, and it certainly is lovely and solid.
