Ha ha, no - just starting - footings being poured this week.  Spec hasn't changed much since I posted here, we just ran out of time last year due to 'robust debates' with the council - full steam ahead now though!

Very willing to share everything - in fact, I'll be blogging about it and the products we've chosen, lessons learned etc.  Flick me a DM if you have any specific questions for now though, happy to help!!

That is a huge wedding present for your sister to give you in designing the house for you. So much time and work involved.

Absolutely, especially as she lives in Perth and designs commercial buildings (primarily, private hospitals).  To be fair, she handed it over once the concepts were complete and we engaged a local architectural designer to do the working drawings and manage the consent process (that's a whole blog post right there!!).

Would love to see some images of the design, and the
floorplan etc.

Would also love to hear about the basic
specs of the house, things like wall cavity size
Insulation spec, floor construction, all the sort
Of bones type specs.

We have just engaged the designer, so I've been
Doing hundreds of hours of research into products

Hearing first hand from people actually doing
It is super helpful.
