Oh my goodness, Metricon have really kicked into gear and it’s been all systems go at the block! The house continues to morph and I feel like a kid in a candy store every time I go on site. The visual changes since the plasterboard went up are really out of this world. I’m definitely enjoying this stage. All the months of planning, stressing and waiting are now but a distant memory!
Enough of my ramblings. I shall let the photo updates speak for themselves 🙂
Welcome to our Hudson!
Wet area floors had been screeded all set for tiling to commence tomorrow.
The laundry is the standard Hudson layout. In hindsight, we should have added a window here to bring in more natural light and ventilation. We also didn’t upgrade the joinery so the plan is to add more overhead cupboards and maybe even a built-in clothes bin drawer after handover.
When we signed off on the final construction plans, we completely overlooked the type of cladding in the master bedroom balcony. We assumed it will be cladded in the same material as the Laguna display home in Kellyville. But the drawings indicated otherwise so we were lucky the oversight was picked up well before lockup stage. Metricon don’t normally allow variations once construction start and I had to push and escalate to management before the change was eventually approved. We love it!
Council rejected the slimline tanks we originally planned for the house. They insisted we put in these massive tanks which hold 5000 litres each! Once they are in, side access from front to rear will be restricted. Our poor landscapers will have their work cut out for them!
What about the kitchen I hear you ask? It deserves a blog post of its own so stay tuned…
