On top of all the excitement of the sale of our old place, updated house plans and costings for all our requested variations to the plan arrived from our potential builder. Champagne, money in the bank, fresh house plans – what more can a girl want?
Since we are not yet committed to our preferred house plan and builder, I’m just going to give you a little peek for now.
Some day I’ll post a full list of our variations and their costs, but today here are a couple of things that we immediately crossed off the list:
- caesarstone backsplash to match bench tops $4000
- frameless glass door to ensuite WC to match shower door $1900
The rest of the variation costs were not too unexpected but did bring up the need to do a whole new round of research which this week has included:
- soakwells and their use for pool backwashes
- stackstone cladding vs. its cheaper cousin, feature limestone render
Now dear readers, you know the deal. I give you pictures, you give me advice. It’s ovens again. I am currently presented with a choice of Blanco versus Westinghouse for 900mm freestanding oven, 600mm wall oven, microwave and range hood. Does anyone have an opinion about any of these products? The price difference to us will be negligible.
