Having enthusiastically met with builders, draftsmen, engineers and surveyors since exchange of contracts, this fortnight has been action-packed and we’re ready to submit plans to council. And not one to let obstacles litter the path to beach house heaven, we’ve sourced furniture, fixtures and fittings from far and distant lands to get the design ‘just so’, even jumping on a plane to choose the suppliers myself!
We’ve also designed quirky items to be custom made, selected colour schemes, fabrics, tap wear, appliances. And the list goes on.
I’ve even chosen the plants for landscaping, which will include the all-important kitchen garden with items crucial to civilised sun-downers: a lime tree and mint…for Mojitos, of course!
With just 6 weeks until completion, we’re getting all our ducks in a very neat row.
