The changes we made:
We mirror reversed the laundry and the meals room so that the living space was bigger - will upload updated floor plans when we get them!
We added a window splashback to the laundry.
We removed the laundry door and put a pocket door / cavity slider door instead.
We changed the kitchen layout to include a walk in pantry and a drop down stone dining table instead of a step up laminate table.
We soundproofed bedroom 2 for a games room.
We changed shower screens from fully framed to semi frameless.
We changed stone colour from calacatta to frosty carrina.
We added a mini bar to the kitchen.
We changed our laundry appliances to be under bench so we now have a massive benchtop in our laundry.
We submitted our final variations and new kitchen and laundry drawings to Rawson yesterday, so are hoping to have the house plans finalised asap so thta we dont have any council delays.
At 12pm today our LPI status changed to creating folios, and smack bang on 4.30pm it updated to registered, so finally, 6 months after registration was originally due, we are registered! Here's hoping for the slab pour in approx 8 weeks!
