News just in.

Saw the builders reps this afternoon and our plans have arrived. they are checking that it all matches with what we've agreed to and will be posting them to us tomorrow. Yippee

Plans should be here on Friday. :)

Site engineers will work out final site works costings now the plans are complete :) This takes around 3 weeks. sigh. Once this is done we can finally have prestart and sign the final priced contracts. Well final except that of course we have a couple of changes to window sizes ( 2) and some upgrades to kitchen gear and bathroom vanities to go.

From something I've read i saw a mention of 21 days .. But it might have been from council approval not from from sign of contracts. Fingers crossed.
At this stage our choices are as follows:

Main colours throughout

Ceiling /Cornice - flat white

Walls - wattyl " Augathella" We'll probably be doing this ourselves.
We painted one of the rooms in our last house a wattyl colour called "Tumbleweed" and I would like to use the colour again. Perhaps as a feature somewhere. ( hmm i "think" it was a wattyl colour. I'll have to hunt down my info sheets.

Timber capping - jarrah ( orange-red-brown not orange)

Doors and door frames -wattyl "chalkdust"
This may end up something a little darker yet. I'm a tad worried that it is a bit light.
Door furniture:
main front door will be from the Gainsborough trilock range
other internal door furniture will be Gainborough

Gainsborough Contractor 700 series Sofia ( internals)
