We had a team of five plasterers on Saturday working hard to finish installing the plasterboard and cornices. Oh my goodness, what a transformation! Our Hudson is looking more like a house rather than a building site. With the walls and ceiling up, we finally get a real feel for the space. We absolutely love the open plan layout and generous size of the rooms.
The render had finally been given a lick of paint. Loving the colour Dulux Mt Eden that we chose for the portico. I have to confess to being a bit underwhelmed by the facade when I first saw the painted render. I wasn’t completely convinced the exterior colours work together but thank goodness it looks much better in the sun. It’s slowly growing on me and I’m sure the landscape we have planned for the front garden will give the facade a lift. The remaining down pipes will be painted in Monument.

Apparently it’s not good feng shui for the front door to be directly aligned with the rear door. Oh well, I’m sure a strategically placed crystal will remedy the bad energy😄
Hooray for trades working on the weekend!

I absolutely love the cornerless bifold doors which will open up the back of the house and provide a seamless transition to the great outdoors.
One of our must have’s – cornerless bifold doors finally installed. Yay!

We added a microwave/oven tower to the right of the window splashback. The kitchen’s going in next week and I can’t wait to see our vision come to life. After all the dramas over the design, I’ve been dying the see the kitchen and butler’s pantry installed.
Another look at the feature stairwell window. I love the natural light flooding this space and to make full use of the gorgeous sunlight, to the left of the stairs will be the children’s study and play areas.

I love love love the size and layout of the master bedroom. We will put in a timber panel screen in the opening of the ensuite after handover.

We are so happy with the progress on site. Last week was such a big week in terms of significant visual changes. We hope Metricon keep the momentum going this week and the rest of the build. The stairs are going in this week along with waterproofing and carpentry fixout. Next week is kitchen week! Woohoo!
