Looks fab except for 2 things:
1) The kitchen cupboards over the fridge are meant to be in burnished wood not white. So we are working that out with our fab Admin Person from Plantation.
2) We added an internal door between the hallway and the kitchen to isolate the aircon, however, until I have now seen in 3D I realise I don’t want the door opening onto the kitchen!!!!
So been speaking with Admin Staff and SS to see if we can perhaps change the door to hang on the other side of the door frame and open out to a void area or get a sliding door.
Still waiting for white stone bench tops, red glass splash back and stainless steel products so can’t wait to see what it’s all going to look like!
Nearmap seems to be updated more frequently than other web based map sites.
This map was updated on 20 July 2010 – and the roof is half on!

Met our Tiler “AD” onsite today – he wanted to show me the shower tiles set out at 45 degree – which apparently is better for water run off etc.
He has also started the some of the tiling in the bathrooms.
I do really love the colour of the tiles!!!!
SURPRISE KITCHEN, BATHROOM AND LAUNDRY
I was very surprised to see the kitchen and laundry cabinets delivered (wasn’t expecting them until Friday).
Thanks to everyone that is reading the blog we have now passed 2000 hits!
Drop us a line and say hello – don’t be shy!
It would appear that skirting boards, architraves and cornices are complete! All the doors have been hung expect for the garage door which goes in towards the end.

Not sure on the grey cement colour look LOL - It will be painted in a few weeks!
The house is also now at lock up stage which sucks in a way because of the “goop” that is on the windows (to protect them) it actually means we can’t even see into the house to a “look see”!
A carpenter has been onsite this week and all kitchen and bathroom measurements have been done for stone bench tops, glass splash back, mirrors, cabinets etc….
Thanks to everyone that is keeping up-to-date with our blog we have hit 1831 hits today!

People are just so rude – have they not heard of going to the DUMP if you can’t fit it in your own bin – or how about they hire their own skip bin!
I marched up to the bin in the hopes that there might have been a delivery sticker on the box so I could find out their address and deliver their crap back to them….. but alas there wasn’t one!
As I know my direct and NICE neighbours read my posts - rest assured we WILL NOT be dumping our rubbish in your bin while you are building or any other time!

It would be greatly appreciated if you could complete the following short survey on Party Drugs (even if you have never tried them).
This is an anonymous survey for the purpose of collecting market research for a Tafe assignment.
This survey should take no longer than 5 to 10 minutes of your time.
Thanks in Advance :: Jazz

Well we found these great modern looking diffusers at Bunnings the Mozzie sticks that you light and put inside them are made out of Sandal Wood and smell pretty good!
Because you light the stick and put it inside the diffuser it does look better but also is safer.

As we are going to be having a rather large front garden we have decided to that some sort of feature was needed.
Both Brett and I love gargoyles mainly the cute/nice or funny looking ones – I even have a mini gargoyle statue on my desk at work!
We also like to put our own mark on things – so instead of buying normal plinth to but the gargoyle on we found this great square bird bath which we will paint black to match the house and will prop our gargoyle up in.
Once the gargoyle is in there we will place plants around it to add in some green!
So far we have found this cute Patient Protector Gargoyle – we is very cute!
Waiting patiently but undeterred this cute gargoyle sculpture is made from designer resin and finished with a weathered greystone finish. 25cm W x 25cm D x 27 cm H.
Hopefully we don't freak out the neighbours!
"Gargoyle", the dictionary definition: a spout usually in the form of a grotesquely carved face or figure, projecting from a roof gutter. From the Old French "gargouille" and the Late Latin "gurgulio", both meaning throat. (from Chambers Concise dictionary)

We love the “school locker” look – which is going to go well “pop-art” pictures and bold design elements we are using in this area of the house!
Lockable doors for safe-keeping of things that you are extra careful of.Cord outlet underneath; keeps all cords in one place.Tall legs make cleaning easy.
Designer: Nicholai Wiig Hansen
Width: 119 cmDepth: 40 cmHeight: 63 cmMax. load: 60 kg
Wipe clean with a cloth dampened in a mild cleaner.
This weather should be clearing in the early afternoon!
We are heading out to the block today and I will be able to wear my new hot pink and black gum boots yeeeeha!

Spoke to SS today and the bricks should be finished this week (fingers crossed).
Render to start early to mid next week – that will be exciting!
Brett and I are meeting with the SS on Friday which will be good.

Most of the front and right had side is 90% done and the back and the left hand side will hopefully be done this week.
I couldn’t get any pics of the inside of the house as the plasterers were there – working on a Saturday!

It turned out to be harder than expected to track something like that down for an everyday dinner setting.
We ending up find a great setting at Target and what was great about it was that you can get the set without the cups (we have a million cups that we never use) so 8 less of them worked for me!

We will also have a hot pink feature wall in this room, along with black Paris chandelier, bevelled mirror.
Our dining room table is square with hot pink suede covered dining room chairs.
