About Me

My photo
I am a SAHM who does work from home occasionally, dedicated to raising 3 Godly, independent, healthy children. Loving the home building process though it is not without challenges. I have fairly free reign over the creative aspect of the project...just not the financial side!

Things I would change.....an evolving list

* Add pot drawers rather than cupboards under appliance cupboard
* Water tank underground
* Sound proof the media room
* Shower in the powder room downstairs for guests
* Fans in bedrooms (can easily add these though)
* Stacker door guides flush with tiling
* Deepen the garage for easier thoroughfare
* Put in that laundry chute that was initially a deal-breaker! (I just throw the contents of the hamper over the upstairs balcony)
* Make the alfresco even bigger than it is.
* Downlight colour warmer than the cool white glow we have. (changed already)
* Wrap the internal pipes to reduce noise whilst sitting downstairs.
* Upgrade to 40mm plus on stone on kitchen.
* Make the rumpus room slightly larger. Not easy to play table tennis in there.
* Integrate the drains with tiling in the wet area.
* Put  an overhead void in for interest & extend the upper level back.


  1. Did you upgrade the bricks? If yes, then how much did they charge you?
    Thank You in advance

  2. Hi Mukesh, No the bricks were not an upgrade for my package (Prestige). We did upgrade to the offwhite mortar for a nominal amount.

  3. Hello, just wondering what the name of your bricks is?

  4. Thanks for this list Kerith ... useful!
