Are we there yet?


So, we’ve really just started when you look at the entire build process. Even so, it has been fun, but then again we haven’t reached the building stage yet. How will it change, over the next nine months?

We’ve decided to build the Metricon Liberty 42 out at Stonecutters Ridge in North West Sydney. It’s a relatively new neighborhood with the first few homes only slated to be finished within the next few weeks. It’s all a new process to Megan and I, but it’s something we’re both looking forward to. We’re not sure what to expect, but we’re sure to learn heaps over the entire build process.

While the look of our house won’t exactly match the above picture, it’s pretty darn close. We’ve decided on the Plantation facade and although we’re not rendering the house, the brickwork color matches the color very close, and the other colors are pretty similar. We’re set to submit our colors to the developer later this week, and then hopefully to Council by Christmas. Here’s hoping it all goes smoothly.

Over the coming months we’ll update this blog to track our build process. It’s going to be an interesting experience, for sure.
