- Wedding: August 2010
So we are building our house starting on tuesday!! excitement or what! So instead of creating what it feels like billions of threads Im just going to post this one and as it progresses update the thread 🙂
So heres the block ladies and me doing a starting attempt at jumping up in the air. I have video footage but that doesnt upload very well.. and i am aware that this picture is not flattering and i look like a muppet 🙂 but its the hazards of being super excited 😀 The block is located in a new divizion in my city. The block is 621sqm
My My mum is an architect and she designed our house for us. We had a choice of several plans but this one worked on the block the best because the block is bigger at the front and smaller at the back. A bit like a battle axe. Its pretty roomy but designed to be on a modest budget.
We have chosen our brick colour is which is a cream colour with a white colorbond roof and piping and a white double garage door. The idea is to keep this neat looking in colour and design.
We will have a dark grey driveway with silver boarder…
We are doing tiles throughout the house except for the bedrooms and theatre room. Which will be carpet.
Here is our carpet selection.
Next pic is our cupboard selection –
In order is our kickboard, cabinet colour and then the benchtop colour. I dont have a pic of the main floor tile that we are using throughout the house but it is extremely similar to the bench top! a dark grey. I will run the same cupboard selection in the laundry also.
The bathroom and ensuite will be a little differant. In order the dark grey as the kickboard and then the cabinet and benchtop will be the lighter one in gloss.
I have chosen a plain white long tile that will be on all bathroom walls, kitchen splash back and laundry splash back. Keep it consistent. Very similar to the pic below, but i didnt have a pic of the actual tile to show you. Sorry!
I have chosen differant feature tiles.
This one below will be the guest bathroom and it will be positioned just as one strip in the shower area running up from the shower floor to the end of the tiling. It wont appear above the cupboards. Didnt want to go over board 🙂 and wanted to let the cabinet be the main feature so to speak.
Here I have chosen this tile to go in the kitchen and it will just go in line with the oven stove top and will be two strips if that makes sense. It wont go length ways round the kitchen. I thought that was overboard.
This photo looks like it has a bit of brown in it. It doesnt.. its very much clear glossy grey.
Anyway.. so what do you think??
Next bit we have to chose is paint colours! And im going to be boring and go white 🙂 i think. Hubs wants to paint the ceiling a diff colour but im not so sure!
