Stage one 

Choosing our home
The hardest part for us was choosing our dream home while keeping within our budget. We found many beautiful homes that we would absolutely love to build with base prices within our budget, however once you added site costs, basic extras you were looking at $100,000s over budget. Our block is also an odd shape, so finding a house that would fit and look fantastic has proved difficult. At the moment we have decided upon selecting a single storey with a lower base price and adding extras to make it beautiful and unique. 

We’ve learnt quite a bit during the quoting process and how quickly costs can add up. Our land does not title for another 11 months so we have plenty of time to make our final decisions. There are a few things that are important to us that we would like in our home – 

  • Butlers Pantry 
  • Large Kitchen with island bench
  • Large Walk In Robe
  • Ensuite
  • Decent Sized Laundry.

We’ve looked at many builders with great deals and many beautiful floor plans incorporating most of the above.

At this stage we have decided on a beautiful Henley Home that ticks all of these boxes. Four bedrooms, ensuite, walk-in robes to 3 of the 4 rooms (Master bedroom has 2 walk in robes), 3 spacious living areas, beautiful kitchen with butlers pantry and a double car garage.
We’ve still got a lot of looking around to do, but at the moment I think we’ve found our dream home. Follow us as we Build Our Dream Home.
