Feeling this house we drove past; might be a perfect mix of modern Aussie coastal and Venice CA...

Which is more of a modern coastal look kitchen? ๐Ÿง Halp!

A more modern take on my style. Quite like it. But it all comes down to ๐Ÿ’ฐdoesnโ€™t it?!

Late night spreadsheets.
So many columns. So many variables. So many possible outcomes ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
Being conservative, planning for the worst and hoping for the best knowing itโ€™s a game of swings and roundabouts.

Bathroom research.
Before I send out plans to my shortlist of builders to get quotes, I wanted to make sure I had somewhat of an understanding of how much everything (that I want) costs. I want to know whether the builders quotes with their PC items is on par and reduce the risk being surprised when the items I want are much more than allowed for in the quotes and realising the build will cost a lot more than I thought. Itโ€™s already more expensive than I first thought.... ๐Ÿคจ

Not a bad place to be whilst we wait for our house to be built... ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ

Comparing apples with apples, itโ€™s always a hard thing to do! My poor brain... So whether itโ€™s a draftsman or architect youโ€™re after, how do you choose between them all? Like with builders, does it come down to who you gel the most with?
