We recently had our Tender appointment with Porter Davis and received our latest house plans.
This gave us some insight as to how the house will sit on our block which is slightly sloped in two directions. The plan below shows how the land is slightly higher on the right side of the house and slightly lower on the left. We can now begin to plan the landscaping for the front garden with this in mind.
This is how our house currently sits in the block. Due to the slight slope and the house being double story we have been informed we will need to have a retaining wall built down one side of the property. This has added $8500 to our costs although our Bushfire Attack Levy was removed which was $7000.
Here are the plans for the bottom floor. We added a roller door to rear garage, removed wall and door to cloak room, changed store room to drying room, added door from pantry to under stairs, and changed window to sliding door off theatre.
Here are our Kitchen and Galley drawings:
