Not long to go now, just over a month until we can move in – Hopefully!

The only negative issue at this stage is with the Builders Planbuild constructing next door who decided to put up a fence without checking with us first.  It altered our plans a little bit though its workable.  Fencing seems to be a common issue with house and land packages after reading various threads on the homeone forums.  We just got a quote for a fence ourselves which needs to adhere to Pool regulations which this fence probably does not – we will find out when they do their last inspection.

Hopefully we can just alter the fence they have put in without to many issues.

Madison 4: Under the Stairs.

Madison 4: Under the Stairs.

This is the space under the Stairs which I think by default is blocked in and turned into a cupboard.  We left this space open and put a door right in this location in order to utilise the space.  It doesn’t look like much in this photo but there is a heap of useful storage space here.  When I get the time I’ll put some shelving in.

The window directly facing you in this pic is not included in the Madison 4 by default.  Putting it in definitely opens up the living room plus it will also be overlooking our pool.

Instead of the standard full size theatre room window, we put in a slimline one instead in order to make more use of a small area.  Prior to plastering, I got permission from our supervisor to run some wires for speakers in the walls all the way out to the alfresco.  I also ran a cat5 cable, HDMI cable plus a USB booster cable from the study for a bit of PC based home automation.  Because its now plastered in, it’s a good idea to take a heap of pics of the framework so you know where everything is.

Overall Plantation have been excellent in the quality of their workmanship, it may not be as quick as a Planbuild throw it up within a month concept, which to be honest, is probably not a great idea on an estate built on a heap of landfill.
