Brooks Reach Building adventure

Come with us now on a tale of the mighty house building.

Benchtop beauty

on July 13, 2013

Just a quick update as our gorgeous benchtops have been installed. The place was all locked up (as it should be) so we couldn’t get inside, but we had a quick peek through the windows!!
This is the colour of our Benchtop; New Diamond White New Diamond White stone benchtop
Our front and back door have had their first coat of paint as has the walls and doors inside.

Skirting and architraves have all been installed too.
Our tiny back step area has been tiled, but I can’t remember if the front step has been tiled yet

Tiling looks to be complete in the bathroom/ensuite/WC/laundry as far as we can tell. We love our mosaic tiling along the bathtub and can’t wait to see the strip above the vanity in the ensuite

Our vanities have also been installed

Our downpipes have finally had a coat of paint! We are so relieved as we were anxious as to whether or not we had made the right decision to go with a light colour for downpipes/water tank/fascia rather then something to match the roof. We are super happy we stuck to our first choice.


So we’re thinking that the electrician should be onsite next week to wire up everything then painters will come back and do their bit, Splashback will be installed, carpenter will put on doors and install shelving and then hopefully the plumber will do his part and move the stormwater pit and sewer vent.

It’s an exciting feeling to be so close to handover, but I also felt a little sad leaving the lot today; We won’t be visiting on site anymore unless we have scheduled inspections as there really isn’t anything else we can physically see without having access to the inside. Praying we’re still on track for August handover (or sooner!!!!!)

    Oh Rubes…it is looking so good! I noticed the downpipes had been painted the other day, they look great, have been blended really well. I love, love, love your benchtops! Mwah…I am so excited for you guys, I cannot wait for you to be in your beautiful house. It is so exciting isn’t it? xx

      Hey Wiz 🙂 we were pretty excited when we saw there had been some painting and our benchtops installed but it doesn’t compare to the squeal we let out when we saw you had a slab!!!

      I know you understand that scary feeling of not being too sure how all the colour choices will come together.

    Hi Rubes,

    Your kitchen appliance bench looks great, plus of course the great brick choice that so well compliments your house.
