We have lift off....

Well things have been progressing nicely. Met with the SS 3 weeks ago and since then, we have had the port-a-loo arrive, bin and pegging. Since then the footings have started. Cement piers, plumbing and  digging has happened. Cant believe how exciting it is to see piles of dirt and plumbing pipes sticking up!

Lounge Suite

Well have gone all out and ordered a lounge suite in
 a very bold colour, orange


Well for a long time we were not happy with the brick and roof colour so we decided to upgrade bricks to allow for a surfmist roof, guttering and garage doors with white windows. These photos give the idea of the new colours.

These are the bricks we have chosen, Selkirk Coastal Stone. We have been worried about these but were lucky to see a house on the weekend in them with a grey roof, which we are doing woodland grey and loved it. Roof, gutters, downpipes, fascias and windows are all going to be woodland grey. Such a relief. We never knew how many decisions need to be made when building a house and the big ones that are unchangeable down the track need to be right!!

 This is the floor tile we are doing throughout, it looks quite silver in this photo, however it is black with a sliver shimmer to it. Looks stunning, was in the display we saw. The carpet is also a similar colour to whats in the photo.

So this is pretty much the colour scheme for the house. Going greys, whites and greens. The splashback in the kitchen is pretty out there. Going Dulux Techno Green, the small mosaics are what is going in the butlers pantry to tie back with the kitchen. Kitchen benches are Caeserstone White Shimmer with polar white cupboards in the pantry and the island and the back wall of draws, oven tower etc is Formica ashphalt. Walls are a grey based white with white arcs.
