Land - almost there...

Settlement will hopefully be in June. They are presently putting in footpaths and driveways now. Top of the road still is to go on - then there's a lot of rocks and dirt that they've got to do something with.

Climbing on the rocks - typical boy!

red and white lines on gutter edge show where our driveway will be

Looking over the wetland area reserve that is next to our block - this will be really nice when it's all done.

They've certainly built up the land quite a bit.


We had our contract appointment this morning. It went well - apart from the fact that they were having technical issues and couldn't print it. They will post it to us and we'll sign it at home and then send it back.

Because I love procrastinating, instead of doing things I "should" be doing on this last day of the school holidays I've made a few 'style boards'.

Getting Closer

Went past the land on Monday. Looks like there's not much left to do with the roads, just the final layer to go on. I wonder when we'll find out when settlement will happen - surely it won't be too long.


We finally had our tiles appointment on Saturday. Busy busy day it was. Tile appointment early afternoon followed by our son's 12th birthday laser squirmish party.  Anyway, it didn't take very long at all to do our selections. Since we had been in earlier and already chosen the main tiles for the wet areas, we just had to choose our feature tiles for the vanity splashbacks.

We are having Portifino FA01 Shell Matt Bianco Satin 400x400 (from the standard range) for the floors and the shower walls and sides of the bath and spa.  

Our feature tile is very similar to the tile mosaic below, but we're not having the stone tiles in it (which are the patterned tiles in the pic below), just the glass and a matte finish tile in the same colour - biscuit. They'll be laid horizontally not vertical as pictured. This tile will also go around the walls next to the spa and the bath. It's going to look so good. I can't wait to see it!

As we are having a glass splash back in the kitchen we didn't need to worry about choosing tiles for the kitchen - phew! 

The laundry splash back will be a White Gloss 75x150 tile in brick (subway) style from the standard range.
