Things are starting to Happen

Well things are slowly starting to happen. Certificate of Title arrived just over a week ago, Developer Approval was given on 18th May (took almost a month as the builder forgot to send colour samples), loan documents arrived yesterday and today I had my final colour selection which was my tiles.

I am keeping the same floor tile throughout my wet areas which is a charcoal in 400mm x 400mm. I have chosen to go predominantly white on the walls, shower and bath with charcoal tiles framing the mirrors and a 100mm wide black pebble feature strip running vertically down one wall of each shower.

I wanted to keep the colours simple and something that is not going to date too quickly. I would prefer to add my colours by using towels and accessories so that when I get board I can change the look easily and with very little expense.

The only think I am waiting on now is council approval and a start date from the builder which I will expect to have in the next week.

Oh and I have already received my first water bill from Southern Water. A whole $11.00, if only they were all going to be that low.
