Selections... Windows.. Benchtops.. Lighting Automation

It really is flying along at the moment. I went today and the SS asked me to go through on the weekend and mark where I want extra noggins for pictures, TV etc, he's already put extras in for towel rails , dryer etc. 

Builder was telling me he's adding extra ply bracing and they were also going to batten screw the frame at every doorway so if the door slams tree won't be any movement. Seemed like a good idea to me.

We are going through some of selections we did with our original builder to make sure we are happy with them. Went to see ceasarstone showroom today. Have narrowed down to 4. Haze, Ivory, Linen and Seattle Sky. 

Had meeting with the windows rep during the week and we have decided to go with the three door stacker upstairs going onto the alfresco. The combination of the screen track size and the saving in both the door cost and screening costs was the deciding factors. Saw some nice sliding door handles at the showroom. Slimline with good locking(double beak) mechanisms and a nifty indicator to show if locked or not. Did get a surprise that some windows are actually double hung. We thought they were single hung.

Trying to decide how far I want to go with my light automation and its doing my head in a bit at the moment. To do everything i want i need to get all the light circuits hoe run to central point. Don't think this (the 240v cableing) got priced so need to see how much more. Already have the automation stuff in there. Got meeting with Sparky and AV guy next week.


  1. Hey, if you're concerned about people knowing the exact location you're building, you might want to be a little careful about the pictures you post up. Its pretty easy to work out your address is around number 96, I won't put the street and suburb though.

  2. thanks for your interest and for your feedback.
