The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

Final Kitchen & bathroom Finishes



It is now heading into week 23 of the house build - the house is now in lock up stage and is looking more and more like a house finally. Haven't had a good chance to take any updated images - by the time the builders leave for the day it is completely dark - missing daylight savings that for sure

The veranda to the front still needs to go on plus there are no external doors etc - just temporary ones for now. So many people who visit the house actually think the red bricks are staying - these are just common reds ready for full rendering later in the build

Over the next few months house should be heading into the fixing stage with plastering, cornices, doors, flooring, painting, rendering etc  Still hoping for it all to be completed by October/November this year but things seem to go so slowly


We decided on white shaker style cabinetry, concealed rangehood, marble splashback and a contrasting island bench in a dark timber like below. All bathrooms and laundry will also feature the same white shaker style cabinets and same handles. Can't wait to see it all go in - I am hoping its going to look amazing

Caesarstone Snow for Kitchen and bathroom benchtops

Ice snow for benches in butlers panty and a simlar Laminex colour for laundry

Island bench similar in design but dark timber in colour
